Hi guys. I bought an LTD F-255 in May 2004. After 9 months of play, the bridge started to "twist". Just like the metal was too soft. I sent it to the shop and they ordered a new one. I just hope ESP is aware of this problem and the new part will be harder than the original. The luthier told me he had never seen that, and he was sincere, but I've already found another guy here who had the same problem. He played with it until a piece of his bridge snaped. ESP replaces the part for free, so I'm just saying watch your bridge carefully.
