Guitars in the LTD 1000 Series are designed to offer the tone, feel, looks, and quality that working professional musicians need in an instrument. The LTD Deluxe H3-1000 has the bold angular curves of the ESP Horizon-3, with an extended and beveled upper horn and a shortened lower horn that offers excellent high-fret accessibility. This guitar offers set-thru construction at 25.5” scale, pairing a mahogany body with flamed-maple top to a three-piece maple neck with Macassar ebony fingerboard. The H3-1000 has a pair of high-output, direct-mount Seymour Duncan Sentient (neck) and Pegasus (bridge) passive pickups, splittable by a push-pull control. These pickups offer a wide dynamic range and excellent articulation, along with the aggressive responsiveness you want for today’s music. It also includes a TonePros locking TOM bridge with string-thru-body design, and LTD locking tuners. Available in See Thru Purple finish.

Where can I buy one?

You can purchase from any authorized ESP Dealer or directly from our website (in case we are out of stock there may not be a Buy Now button).

Just picked this guitar up last week and it’s honestly my favorite so far. Glad I ended up going with ESP/LTD. Great design and color

Todd B. ESP

Hi Nic, glad to hear that! Thanks for choosing ESP, we appreciate your comments!

Hugo F.

Sure hope there is a new model for 2021 really looking forward to stainless steel frets 

Tim S.

Yeah me too.  Stainless frets should be an industry standard. Or at least EVO frets, but they have a gold color that doesn't always look good.

I bought this guitar a year ago and since then I haven’t been able to practice guitar without it. I’m happy that my first ESP instrument was this LTD model because of it’s well-made construction, versatility, and striking appearance. If you’re looking to buy this guitar, I’d say that you’re making the right investment. The new H3 models are just as solid and I can’t wait to see more in the future! If I may suggest, I would love to have this model added to the Black Metal Series.

thanks for the suggestion!

My favorite ESP/LTD model! Never tried one before, but will surely get one once it is available again... I really like the OG 3x3 headstock, but this pointy headstock looks rad as well!

Carl N.

thanks for sharing!
