MH-1000 EVERTUNE

SEE THRU BLACK

$1,149.00

As part of the LTD Deluxe Series designed for professional musicians, the LTD MH-1000 EverTune gives you more than you bargained for. It offers set-thru construction, meaning the neck extends deeply into the guitar's body cavity, offering unparalleled access to the upper frets with a smooth heel joint. It has a mahogany body with a flamed maple top in a See Thru Black finish, highlighting the great look of the figured wood grain. It also features a three-piece thin U-shaped maple neck, and an ebony fingerboard with 24 extra-jumbo frets. High-class touches are included, like its multiple white binding and Grover tuners. But the MH-1000 EverTune takes things a step further with the inclusion of active EMG 85 (neck) and EMG 81 (bridge) pickup for tones that range from dark and menacing through screaming and aggressive. Finally, the EverTune constant tension bridge ensures that almost any conditions, your guitar will stay in perfect tune, and have incredibly accurate intonation at every point on the fingerboard.

Bought this guitar from Sweetwater 2 months ago. I can say I have had plenty of time to inspect the guitar for flaws and build quality issues and let me say there are none. This guitar is built as good as a USA built guitar in my opinion. Mine was made in Korea and the factory that built it must be top notch. So please ESP don't change factory's. This guitar has the evertune bridge and is my first evertune equipped guitar. I was sceptical about the bridge as far as noise issues I had read about online. But decided to go ahead and pull the trigger on it after watching my favorite Youtuber Ola England talk all positive about them. The only thing I wish as far as options would be locking tuners & Fishman Fluance pickups. I don't mind the EMG pickup but prefer Fishman.

After watching your LTD models for the last few months i'm settling on this guitar. Mostly because i want something with hipshot style bridge instead of TOMs. Is Evertune hard to change tunings/downtune? 

Todd B. ESP

Hi MulletRide, Evertune is not hard to change strings, simple remove old string and put new string and tune to pitch. If you want to change tunings you can easily do it, you simple need to learn the steps it takes to make adjustments. Evertune has some videos on their site or you can watch our instructional videos as well here: https://www.espguitars.com/videos/2032724

Hi, do you know if that guitar will be available soon in shops ? It's sold out every where in France... Or maybe a new model will come soon?

Todd B. ESP

Hi Phil, This model is available, but if you are in France, please check with your local distributor. Here is a link to our distributor page: https://www.espguitars.com/locations?categories=intl-distributors

I'm confused about the evertune bridge. It tunes automatically? Can it be disabled so you can tune as normal? 

Todd B. ESP

Hi Tim, The evertune keeps constant tension, once it is set. So this means that you install your string gauge that you want to use and  you set it up for your tuning. Once you make these adjustments then the tuning doesn't go sharp or flat. Each string has a separate spring that maintains its tension for the pitch it is tuned to. If you wanted to drop the low E string a step for drop tuning, it can be done. You would simple de-tune that string, and once the pitch goes down enough, the spring will disengage when it reaches the backstop (zone 1) and then you will be tuning using the tuning keys at that point. With Evertune it is possible to keep one full tuning accurate, but if you change tuning a lot it is not ideal, simply because if the Evertune is not engaged, then you will run into common tuning issues. I hope this helps.
