Hi, I'm willing to buy one of these beauty, but I can't find any real difference between this h1001qm and the mh1000nt except for the bridge, Tonepros Locking Tom vs hipshot and both of them have the strings through the body. Am I missing something?

And more generally, what's the difference between H and MH series?


Todd B. ESP

Hi Quentin, You pretty much nailed it. Both these models use the same body design, so the main difference is the headstock shape. Other than than, you have different inlays, different pickups and different bridges. They will both feel the same to play, so choose the one that you like visually and pick the pickups and bridge that you prefer. Hopefully one of these models will work for you. Thanks for your questions.

Will this guitar fit a set of EMG' S 

Todd B. ESP

Hi Benjamin, Yes EMG will fit this model. The pickup shape is slightly different so you might have to sharpen the corner of the route, but probably not. Most standard humbuckers will fit.

I got one of these yesterday. Its a really beautiful guitar. Its much lighter than I expected, especially compared to my EC-1000FM.

Todd B. ESP

Hi Steven, Glad to hear that. Hope you enjoy your new instrument.
