Great for any style.

By Agent XERo

from Boise, ID

Iv'e only been playing for five years. But a very continual five years. And with that I had 12 years of piano and 10 years of violin under my belt. So I caught on quick to guitar and a style close to that of buckethead. This is a great guitar whether playing live or recording. Clean, or max distortion this thing will rock. I play through the VOX Tonelab SE. And though the recorder I use is far from professional level the sound quality is awesome. I recomend this to any musician of any style. Smooth action, excellent sustain, and great overal playability.


ESP/LTD H-1000 Is Awesome


from SLC

I have the H-1000 in the sunburst. It has great tone, amazing sustain and stays in tune- and an added benefit is that it is much lighter that you would expect. It also looks great.The locking tuners and string-through body are great features. This guitar is definitely worth the money. You can't go wrong.


Best Value Out There

The H-1000 and it's brother the MH-1000 with Duncans are just what they say. The perfect LP sound with Strat comfort, only lighter. That is amazing coming from a guitar maker of mostly metal guitars. Great for ANY style. If you need more versatality, get an H-400 with a 5-way switch. It costs less, and you sacrifice some quality, but I think a strat should sound like a strat and humbuckers sound like humbuckers. This guitar sounds great through any amp. This is my #1 and I own lots of Strats and Gibsons. Must Buy.

Well the people are right when they say it's beautiful. I bought a red LTD and of so shiny! The sound is great and the fact that it has a humbucker is really awesome. The tone is pretty cool, too.


awesome axe

This guitar is amazingly light. It looks soooo great. Sounds better. It has a perfect PRS type balance in the pickups. Every note is heard and is the same volume. I play heavy and it sounds really thick.


a reasonably priced awesome guitar

By zigman

from allenstown, NH

This guitar will not dissapoint. It initially grabbed my attention visually (I have the black version). This is one classy looking guitar. Sustain and playability is excellent. Output from EMG pickup's work well w/ my Mesa tube amp.Finish is impeccable. Only drawback is with active pickups, you cant get that "weak, out of phase tone" but thats ok for me. I just cant decide wether to get another one in black or the other finish, for a backup.


cool guitar

By TheStumbler

I played this guitar in a marshall mg 30 watt and it sounded really really good the feel feels just like a stratocaster but it has the power of a les paul this guitar is perfect for someone who wants the power of a les paul but likes the more stratocaster shape.


The best guitar I have EVER owned!

By Mike Kleine

from Lake Crystal, MN

Before I even begin, let me just say that this the guitar I use the most, out of all my other guitars. Whether I am playing a gig or recording, this is the one I predominately use. I have other guitars but nothing compares to this. I got the black version with custom EMG81 and EMG85 pickups. These things were created to blow people's minds. From playing rhythm to lead, there's nothing I can't do with this guitar. I find myself playing lead more often than rhythm and the pickups definitely do their job. From the Pixies to the Strokes, I can get any tone I want; provided I have the correct setup and gear.As I have read before, the first thing I noticed when I took this out of the box was the finish. It seems to always have a shine and the abalone binding is splendid. I have never played a top-loading guitar; meaning a guitar where strings are placed on the body and not through the body. This guitar is a string-through, just the way I like it because I believe that it adds tone and quality to the sound. There is a TonePros locking bridge and this has always worked for me. I can instantly go from high action to low action without any trouble at all.One of the most important features, according to me, are the Sperzel locking tuners. These things are lifesavers. They always keep your guitar in tune, no matter how hard you play or how far you bend your strings! I don?t have exceptionally large fingers but the extra-jumbo frets are excellent for soloing and playing complicated riffs.It?s simple yet still intricate. Instead of having random knobs all over the place, there are just two: a volume and tone knob. The toggle can switch three ways: the bridge, middle, or neck. I personally find it more feasible when there are only three switches as opposed to five or even, seven! For the sound of a Les Paul with the body of a Strat, this guitar is perfect and the extra dough you spend on it is worth it, trust me.


Well constructed, beautiful maple top

By KramerCrazy

from Mass

Amber finish is spectacular with unique binding, lots of detail. Set neck is smooth, extra jumbo frets, great sound out of the JB/59 set. Very bright tone out of 59, metal players would probably prefer the EMG version. I use it for Alice in Chains Eb stuff, handles it all very well. String-through design really does improve sustain. Lots of guitar for the money. Sperzel tuners work well, guitar holds tune better than my Les.


Best guitar i ever played

By Jabez-band-guy

from Lakeland, GA

The H-1000 has unbelievable tone and sustain for a guitar of so little weight. The only thing more beautiful than its appearance is its sound!


Best guitar I own!!

By shark

from Utah

Of course I'm a Les Paul type kind of guy, so I don't like the 1 volume 1 tone. But that's all. I have the black guitar with dual 81's and that guitar blows my others away. You can play in any style with it!!


Elegant look, Metal Tone

By The Demon Burger

from ronkonkoma ny

I recently bought this guitar and it's just a shred machine it has such fast play and the hardware on it is awesome very elgant but can play metal through a concrete wall...It's worth every dollar and it plays just as an esp standard.


A Good Guitar

By WarHeartWarrior

I just recieved this guitar after deciding not to wait for the ESP LTD MH-400. The first thing you notice when taking it out of the box is the finish. It is absolutly beautiful to look at. I was wondering before the purchase if this guitar had a set neck like they said it did. Some people said that it did not and I even saw a picture of this guitar without one. But when I fliped it it was set and very smooth right into the body. This guitar is very accesible to the upper frets and the sound is awesome. I play metal and shred (like Steve Vai). I found the perfect crunch and the best setting for Vai's song Building The Church (need wah as well). This is a great guitar the main difference between this and the h-400 is the abalone outline and the set neck. I put in the extra cash to get exactly what I wanted and I love the choice. Go for it!


Best Guitar I Own

By The Sherminator

from Oklahoma

See all my reviews

I recently received this guitar as a gift, and let me say this guitar is amazing. I have the model with the seymour duncan gold humbuckers and it is awesome. The action is amazingly smooth. You barely have to touch the fret to play the note. Pickups sound amazing. The only beef I have with it is I wish there was at least a volume knob for each pickup, but that hardly gets in the way of all the good thing this guitar brings. Basically the same thing as a Schecter C1. If you have the cash, go get it.


a good guitar

By Phil-jVAPz

from NY

I played the one with the Seymour dunkan to hear how the mahogany body and maple neck sounds and it does give off a very good pinch harmonic and sounds pretty good. but the price on here is expencive i would rather go and try to get it cheaper or just go for a Schecter C-1 hellraiser. EMG 81/85 stock in schecter
