ESP LTD Arrow-401 Electric Guitar in Black

Description

The new Arrow-401 BLK from ESP is a metal machine. The LTD Range brings you everything thats great about ESP at a more affordable price so everyone can enjoy the great sound of a quality guitar. When you pick up an ESP theres a reassuring heft to them, hot heavy as such, just solid. They can take a serious beating and are perfect for touring and regular gigging.

Designed for Metal

Some guitars sound heavy, some look it, this does both. Everything on this guitar screams heavyness. Dont get us wrong though, it's a quality guitar that can handle any style but it's happiest playing Drop tuned power chords and fast lead lines. The Floyd Rose tremelo is great for divebombs, if you want that "dimebag darrell" sound it wont let you down.

Emg Pickups

Although the EMG-85 pickup has more measurable output than the 81, its frequency response and string interface are different. The 85 uses two Alnico magnet-loaded coils with a wide aperture to maintain a beefy low end and a fatter top end. Because of a more natural tone, it works great as a rhythm and blues pickup because it has loads of output but isn't muddy. It's a perfect choice as a rhythm pickup in combination with an 81 in the bridge. The midrange has great definition and doesn't get foggy or muddy in the rhythm position. The EMG-85 works best if you like the natural distortion that comes from overdriving the front end of your amp. Under any condition, the humbucker responds accurately to your technique.

The EMG-81 pickup is a high-output pickup designed especially for the lead guitarist. The 81 is at its best for high volume overdrive and amps with a master volume. Whether you're playing power rock 'n' roll, or overdriving your amp, there's a razor sharp attack, and incredible sustain for brilliant soloing. If you're looking for exceptional qualities in a rock pickup, the EMG-81 is the one. Distortion during lead passages is consistent, sustain is long and the breakup fades smoothly. The ceramic magnet in combination with wide aperture steel poles lend a quick attack but the tone stays nice and fat at the same time. Perfect if you're the only guitarist in the band, and need to switch from rhythm to lead and still keep the band moving. Another great thing about the EMG-81 humbucker is it's quiet. If you're playing at really high gain the last thing you need is noise.
