ESP are the masters of modern metal design. The LTD M-1000 series offers some of the best specs you’ll find - not only within the ESP range - but the world over for a Korean-made guitar. Exceptional construction, sharp looks and elite hardware and electronics.
Made of a solid mahogany body with a superb flamed maple top, the M-1008 is a true spectacle of a guitar - but it doesn’t stop there. Playability is always at the forefront of ESP’s design books. Multi-scale necks improve intonation, string tension at lower tunings and naturally fit the shape of your fretting hand.
The M-1008 hosts a thin ‘U’ neck paired with an ebony fingerboard; a winning combination found across the ESP catalogue in their USA built guitars and production models alike. Hardware choices include locking tuners and a Hipshot hardtail bridge for sure stability.
The Seymour Duncan Nazgul and Sentient bridge and neck pickup set is perfect for progressive musical styles. Modern rock players find themselves dipping into more sounds than ever before across a clean and crunchy tonal spectrum.
The Nazgul delivers a highly aggressive yet controlled ceramic output for searing attack and tight bass response. Chugging drop tuned riffs are this thing’s bread and butter. Switch over to the Sentient in the neck to provide balance and pristine articulation.
