The box with the serial number and manufacturers info refer to them "ESP LTD" which explains why I call them that. I trust them to know what they're called, thanks, so I will defer to them.
Here's a link about the LTD line from ESP if it's confusing (it's about guitars, but it shows that ESP are the manufacturer of the LTD line): http://www.espguitars.com/news/LTD-Elite.html
I never called them ESP's without the qualifier "LTD", it's NOT lame, it's accurate, honest, and corresponds to reality.
"For most of those people, our LTD line of more affordable guitars and basses have been a great compromise between quality and value, and weʼre proud that our LTD instruments have allowed tens of thousands of players to get into ESP without breaking the bank."
Note the use of the first person plural possessive on the ESP site: "OUR LTD line," "OUR LTD instruments."
If ESP refer to LTD series instruments this way, I will as well. Don't like it? Think it's "lame"? LOL! Send your concerns to ESP - it's THEIR idea, not mine. End of story.
Since we're nitpicking, it's "Fender Squier," NOT "Fender Squire." THAT'S lame, incorrect and UNLIKE referring to ESP LTD instruments as "ESP LTD," the manufacturer does NOT refer to them as "Squire" instruments. Ever.
