M-1000 EBONY

SNOW WHITE

$999.00

Guitars in the LTD 1000 Series are designed to offer the tone, feel, looks and quality that working professional musicians need in an instrument, along with the pricing that typical musicians can still afford. The M-1000 is a serious player’s guitar that employs a set-thru, extra thin-U shaped 3 pc. maple neck for the ultimate in shredding on its 24-fret ebony fingerboard. This alder-bodied guitar’s fast feel is complemented by its dual EMG 81 active pickups, with the resulting aggressive tone you need, and a Floyd Rose bridge.

Can you tell me the specific size and make of the Frets? It's a bit frustrating, but mine came with some frets not quite well leveled and I will need to change them...

Carl N.

Hey Borislav, there is no specific make as these are sourced by our factories but this will be most comparable to Dunlop 6100 fretwire.  If you're unfamiliar with working on your own frets I would recommend having a professional handle this type of job for you to avoid any unwanted damage to your instrument.

What's the radius of the fretboard?

Todd B. ESP

It's listed in the specs: 350mm.

Is this an R2 or R7 nut? Also, would anyone happen to know why the neck width at the nut is slightly wider than the nut itself? The Lynch ESP models are similar to this, and this confuses me a bit.

Todd B. ESP

Hi, This model uses an R3 nut since the width of the neck is 43mm. ESP and LTD have always used 42 and 43mm widths as our standard neck widths which are slightly wider than a typical Strat or Les Paul. FR makes their nuts slightly smaller (R2 = 41.3mm) / (R3=42.7mm) probably based on the original Strat and Les Paul widths. Lynch models typically have either a 45mm width neck or 43mm width neck so there is more gap. This space allows for more room on the outside edge of the string to the usable surface of the frets. I'm sure we've all seen a guitar that was built with the strings very close to the edge of the fret which makes it difficult to play.

I love the color and the simplicity of this guitar (and i want a alder/ebony couple), but i hate tremolo system which impact so much the sound. Why not making an HT version of this one ? I would buy it immediatly.

Hi John, Thanks for letting us know what you're looking for.

I really wanted to play these m series guitars but the problem is that I can't really play with a tremolo system, can you guys make one with a hipshot bridge or an tune-o-matic

Deviant  Person

 I know there's a few but can you guys add more of them

Todd B. ESP

Hi Antonio, thanks for your question. We cannot special order this model as your request but we'll take this suggestion into our planning meetings and we'll try to offer more options for the future that have a hardtail bridge.
