If you're a knowledgeable ESP fan, then you'll know that a few of their models are made exclusively for the Japanese market. One of those that was kept off British shores for some time was the Snapper, but over the last few years this guitar has been introduced in full force as part of the LTD 1000-series range.

The ESP LTD SN-1000W model is designed for players that seek premium modern features combined with traditional aesthetics. And this guitar certainly doesn't hold back, with its passive Seymour Duncan pickups and Wilkinson VSVG tremolo.

Construction

The SN-1000W is based on the classic S-type construction. With a bolt-on design, you can expect plenty of snap (hence the name!) and immediacy from notes, while the slightly sculpted heel ensures comfortable access to the upper frets.

An Alder body serves as an excellent tonal foundation for the pickups, delivering a balanced response across all key areas of the guitar frequency spectrum; with a resonant peak in the mid-range. Paired with a Maple neck, this material adds some vibrant highs for extra clarity, while the unfinished Maple fingerboard provides a fast and silky smooth feel under the fingers.

Electronics & Hardware

This guitar represents brilliant value-for-money, especially when you consider the high-quality electronics and hardware appointments it features. The most noteworthy of these are the Seymour Duncan pickups, known for their superb versatility. With a powerful TB-14 Custom 5 humbucker in the bridge position, you also have two SSL-3 single-coils that sound beautifully articulate - particularly with clean amp settings.

The ESP LTD SN-1000W also comes equipped with a Wilkinson VSVG tremolo, letting you perform subtle vibrato effects and dives without the hassle that comes with a double-locking Floyd Rose system. At the other end of the instrument you'll find a set of LTD locking tuners, keeping your tuning stable and easing the string-changing process.
