NATURAL GLOSS

$1,199.00

Guitars in the LTD Deluxe Series are designed to offer the tone, feel, looks, and quality that working professional musicians need in an instrument, and are used every day by serious players on stages and in studios around the world. The M-1000HT takes the classic lines of the M Series and offers them in an amazing neck-thru-body, hardtail version that's topped with figured Hawaiian koa over its mahogany body. It comes equipped with a pair of premier-quality pickups: Seymour Duncan Jazz and Pearly Gates. Terrific design details are part of the M-1000HT, including black binding on the body, neck, and headstock. Hardware on this guitar includes a Hipshot fixed bridge with string-thru-body design to get terrific tone and sustain. Its extra thin, flat-shaped, five-piece maple/purple heart neck continues the entire length of the guitar, offering a smooth heel joint so getting up to that 24th fret is fast and easy.

So what's the difference between thin u and thin flat if they are both 350mm radius?

Todd B. ESP

Hi Ron the Thin Flat shape has a little flatter shape on the back while the Thin U has a more rounded shape. Both shapes are comfortable and both have the same thickness of 20mm @1F and 22mm @ 22F.

What's the radius of the fretboard? Looks amazing!

Todd B. ESP

Hello, It's listed in the specs: 350mm.

RonPinotti

What is the purpose for the bubinga stringers?

Todd B. ESP

Hi Ron, Multi piece laminations add strength and beauty. Our basic version is a 3pc maple neck. By adding 2 extra laminates (in this case we currently use purple heart and in the past we used bubinga), this adds an element of contrast with the darker wood. It also increases the strength. There could be an argument made for the sound characteristics being affected which is true, although probably not noticeable.

This guitar is very cool, a Floyd Rose version would be great, like the one from 2015. Or a Kahler 2300 version. I would pre-order it yesterday.

Todd B. ESP

Hi Vekton, thanks for that suggestion. Sounds pretty cool.

Tony L.

Is there no option to have this with a Floyd Rose locking tremolo? It's about the only thing I'd have different than stock.

Todd B. ESP

Hi Tony, This model is not offered in a Floyd Rose version and we don't offer different options for guitars since they are built according to the same specs you see online. However we could release something like this in the future with a Floyd bridge.
