$749.00

LTD's "400 Series" guitars are designed to offer great quality and reliability for recording and touring musicians, while still remaining affordable enough for the typical musician. The EX-401 is the perfect example, with a design that looks as powerful and aggressive as your music sounds. The EX-401 is a set-thru design, with the neck of the guitar extending into the body cavity for smooth and fast access to the highest frets. It has a mahogany body, a three-piece thin U-shaped maple neck, and a pau ferro fingerboard with 22 extra-jumbo frets. You get pro-quality components with the EX-401FR, including Grover tuners and an enviable set of EMG 60 (neck) and EMG 81 (bridge) pickups, providing an array of tones from buttery to edgy, in-your-face power. Available in Black or Snow White finishes.

What’s the difference between the EX-401 and the EX-200

Carl N.

Hey Max, about $300! 

Besides the construction differences, these will have different hardware along with electronics.  While they may seem like subtle differences, the 401 will have an increase in overall quality which can be felt when comparing the two side by side.  Either are good choices, just depends on your level of playing and budget.

7- string, 25.5" scale, in line headstock and its perfect.

Hi Jani, Thanks for your suggestions.

Hi, I recently purchased a used ltd 401, but it is a little different than the one here. It has a floyd rose special bridge, an the pickups are emgs and i'm not sure which ones  but they certainly aren't the 81 and the 60. It also say ex-401 on the 12th fret and not on the headstock. Is this how they used to be designed and if so can you tell me which pickups they are, or were these modifications made by the previous owner?

Todd B. ESP

Hi Elliot, sounds like you may have purchased an older model when we used to offer this shape with a Floyd bridge. Probably has the 81/85 combo we used before as well as the model name in the 12th fret. If you want to check anything else please email our customer service team and they can assist you, but sounds like it is the way we produced it. Be sure to provide serial number and pictures for their reference. here is their email: customerservice@espguitars.com

ESP, can we get this with an ebony fretboard, maybe side markers only?

Todd B. ESP

Hi Kevin, Thanks for your suggestions.

I would love to see the FX series make a comeback even if its in a limited run. I have been trying to hunt one down online for a while now with no luck.

Hi Kritzer, thanks for your suggestion.
