It's a good choice to starters and amateurs players
The LTD M-10 is a good instrument, if you're starting to learn guitar or if you need a practice instrument. I have one, and I got the bridge pickup changed for a Malagoli's RL-Legacy model (Brazilian's Custom pickup factory) and also changed the whole electrical part (new CTS pots and switchcraft jack). The neck is fast enough for those who like playing riffs "a la" Lamb Of God, and it doesn't lose the pitch, even when I put on some 012 strings and tuning it on Drop-B. So, with this modifications, now I use this guitar live as a backup guitar, and do some recordings with it! My respect to LTD guys!
The Cheap but Good
This is my bedroom guitar, I have it on white. The neck is unfinished, pickups sound good for it's price point and it looks like a FU#&K*N Kirk Hammett guitar. I would definitely recommend this to a beginner or also if you're looking for a cheap backup guitar.

My first guitar since 2015, still amazing after 5 years!
This guitar is actually my first electric, and I think that this guitar is an exceptional guitar for a student-level guitar to be honest. Build quality is very nice for the price of $200 (I got mine for approx. $150 because mine was a B-stock)
Stock pickups (which is the LH-100) were very high-gain, as opposed to other stock pickups from student-level Jacksons, Squiers, Deans, and such. Put it on a high gain amp or some OD/Dist pedals and it saturates easily. Not my cup of tea so I had it replaced with LH-150s from my LTD EC-256 (funny because they did not differ much except that the LH-150 had a coil split function which sounded better in a Basswood body than a Mahogany body)
Hardware is very nice and durable, I only replaced mine because I don't like the color of Black Nickel. Electronics are reliable as well, after a year, I did turn it into a project guitar and replaced the stock bridge with ones that have a roller saddle for less string breakage and more sustain (supposedly), replaced the pickups as well as the wiring scheme for better versatility.
