They only run about $600 street. Are the LTD AX-400 series guitars (like the 401FM) bits o' shite? I don't ever see anyone talking about them, which leads me to think everyone just sorta stays away from them. They seem like a decent alternative to a Warlock, but I don't have enough experience with either to make a judgement of my own.
The 400 series are pretty solid guitars.
I think the reason that people dont talk about them is that they werent made for very long iirc.
But you cant really go wrong with the 400 series or the old 300+ series
