The ESP LTD M-1000 Multi-Scale guitar is made for contemporary guitarists looking for a professional-grade instrument that won't break the bank. This model boasts a number of premium features, including genuine Seymour Duncan Nazgul/Sentient pickups and a Hipshot bridge with locking LTD tuners.
ESP's LTD M-1000 features a slick S-type body crafted from lightweight mahogany, ensuring a warm and rich sound with deep, resonant lows. Finished in satin, the body has a smooth feel that guarantees great playing comfort, while the stunning flamed maple top offers a true high-end aesthetic.
Joining the mahogany body is a bolt-on 5-piece maple/purpleheart neck, which ensures a bright top-end response to give notes a snappy and immediate character. The neck comes adorned with a gorgeous macassar ebony fingerboard, and is fitted with 24 extra-jumbo frets for exceptional playability.
Multi-scale guitars make use of an angled fret arrangement to offer different scale lengths for the various strings of the guitar, allowing for optimal string tension. It has also been stated by many players that this offers an ergonomic improvement for the fretting hand, and the M-1000's varying scale length of 26.5” - 25.5” is subtle enough for players to consider making the jump to multi-scale.
Seymour Duncan Pickups
A potent pickup pairing gives the ESP LTD M-1000 Multi-Scale a powerful voice. Equipped with Seymour Duncan humbuckers, including a high-output Nazgul in the bridge and a Sentient in the neck, you can attain anything from searing high-gain tones to crystal-clear, backed-off cleans.
For full control of the versatile pickup configuration, you can use the 3-way switch to select either humbucker or combine the two for a balanced, full-bodied electric guitar sound. A push-pull tone control allows you to split the humbucker coils to attain glassy single-coil tones too!
