OVERVIEW

A carved maple top and EMG pickups give you beauty in looks and tone.

EMG pickups in a carved maple top for amazing tone and appearance.The ESP LTD Deluxe MH-1000 guitar sports a set-thru 3-piece maple neck, mahogany body with gorgeous carved maple top, and a rosewood fretboard with 24 extra jumbo frets on a slim, U-shaped neck for exceptional speed and comfort. Loaded with an EMG-81 humbucking pickup at the bridge and an 85 at the neck, with volume, tone and 3-way toggle controls. Grover tuners and an FR locking nut for rock-solid tuning stability. Genuine Floyd Rose bridge for pyrotechnic string-bends and divebombs, and black hardware, offset abalone block inlays, and white-with-abalone purfling for an absolutely stunning appearance. Set-thru neck design is an advanced manufacturing technique where the neck is glued to the body (like a set neck), but the otherwise bulky heel is carved away (similar to neck-thru-body construction), for easier, smoother access to the ESP MH-1000's upper frets. Like with a set neck, set-thru construction provides a combination of tone from both the neck and body, depending on the types of wood used, but will generally have a richer, warmer tone than most neck-thru-body electric guitars. Use the drop-down menu above to choose colors and other options.

    Comments about ESP LTD Deluxe MH-1000 Electric Guitar with EMGs:

    This guitar blew me away, and specially at this price point. Just for reference my main guitar is a Gibson Les Paul Custom shop, which I love-- However, this guitar has nothing to envy. It has an incredible, powerful presence. I still cannot believe the quality of the guitar, easily competes with guitars worth 3 times as much and I am not exaggerating. I wanted something different from my Les Paul but did not want to spend more than 1,000 so I thought I would give this guitar a shot. My expectations were not high at all, but it has exceed these expectations ten-fold. I highly recommend this guitar for hard rock and metal.

    Comments about ESP LTD Deluxe MH-1000 Electric Guitar with EMGs:

    It took 4 guitars to finally get one that didn't have something wrong with it! It blew my mind that it took that many to get it right and the time i waited each time i sent it back was insane initself! The real kicker is musicians friend not once offered me anything for the inconvenience NOTHING not even a pic! So i must say i will never purchase through musicians friend for guitars!The guitar is awesome but musician friend dropped the ball multiple times!

      Comments about ESP LTD Deluxe MH-1000 Electric Guitar with EMGs:

      This guitar is a even better than I though it would be. Nice look and the pick ups sound killer. I am not very used to have a tremolo but so far I like it too. The action is good and the sound is great clean or with all the gain. I own another LTD and love both. They are great intruments for the price and even better than some more expensive ones.

        I bought this guitar last summer with the see through black design. First off I must say this is a great guitar. I love the emg's they sound great. The floyd rose makes it a pain to tune out of its standard tuning, but once it has been it stays in tune great. Perfect for rock/ metal lovers looking for a quality instrument.

          Im mainly a strat player, have a les paul so I was hesitatnt to purchase something different. Been playing metal and liked the reviews so I went for it and have to say I love this guitar. The sound, the feel and the ease to play has been thus far awesome. Cant say enough on how much Im loving this guitar. Feeling guilty that I havent picked my #1 strat up in several days!

              Comments about ESP LTD Deluxe MH-1000 Electric Guitar with EMGs:

              Out of all the guitars I have bought over the past 14 years this is by far the best one. I play technical brutal death metal and this guitar is PERFECT for my style of play and music. The neck is simply AMAZING. Plays so fast, nice and thin and you can access all the frets. The sound is astounding as well. I have never had a guitar that sounded as evil as this one when I plugged it into my Peavy stack. This is my go to guitar. When I'm on stage it barely leaves me except for the songs that require 8 strings. I picked mine up in the beautiful white and I couldn't be happier with the overall look and sound of this beast. For anyone playing metal I HIGHLY recommend this guitar. Worth every single penny and trust me, the first time you plug this bad boy in you're going to play until your fingers bleed.

                  Comments about ESP LTD Deluxe MH-1000 Electric Guitar with EMGs:

                  This guitar exceeds guitars worth the same price and higher. I have been playing for over 10 years, having played nearly every guitar from beginner axes to Gibsons and "fancy" boutique guitars and was never impressed like I am with this guitar. The "full" abalone bindiing on EVERYTHING is immaculate. If you are in the right light you see rainbow rays on the back of your high E when soloing. :) Epic. The sound is so balanced and perfect. Clean sound is epic, distorted sound is perfect. Brutal. Perfectly balanced sound especially distorted. The fret wire is so perfect that every note squeals with delight. No matter what fret you are on. I immediately put on a set of Alexi Laiho signature DR strings size 10-46 which plays better than the stock strings. The guitar is perfect. It hasn't even been broke in and it's perfect. Once it's fully broke in this guitar will punish the sound barrier. ;) Rock on. Don't waste your time on spending so much on a "good" guitar. Get the perfect axe. If this is an "LTD" and the ESP Standard is better than I don't know if I want to know how good that is. :) This is wonderful. Get it. You will never be disappointed. ;)
