Hi Todd,

What is the reference for replacing locking nut (for neck).

The bolt thread has worn out, i thought it was universal, but seems there are quite variants (refer to floyd rose table).

For the M100 series. Thanks

Shahril L.

Its OK, i managed to get some local nuts.

And thanks for the ESP youtube tech clip...it really helps

Hi Shahril, Sorry that I did not reply to you earlier and glad to hear you solved the issue. If you ever need technical assistance please contact our customer service team at customerservice@espguitars.com

Hi there, i planned to install EMG 81, and combine it with current neck PU on my M100FM.

Where can i find the wiring instructions for this? Thanks

Todd B. ESP

Hi Shahril, It is not recommended to combine active and passive pickups. It can be done but both pickups work on different impedence so for example EMG active pickups should use 25K pot while standard passive pickups should use 500K pots. If you want to upgrade to EMG we recommend you change both pickups. You can get a wiring diagram from EMG or contact our customer service team but we do not have any instruction how to mix active & Passive pickups.

Hi Todd, thanks for your feedback. Now i had better understanding between 25k and 500k. And also on passive / active combination.

And i got some good reference on wiring diagram, only missing info is on capacitor value on master tone knob, any recommendation on that?

So i have decided to go for (60 or 85 )and 81 instead. (Still checking on reviews between 60 and 85).

But i would appreciate if you can drop some comments on neck PU selection.

Have a nice day.

Todd B. ESP

Hi Shahril, Capacitor value depends on your install (active or passive). For active installs the capacitor will come with the components (such as EMG). They use a value of .01mF for EMG. For a passive install you would typically use a .047mF or .022mF (the larger the value the more high end is rolled off). EMG 60 or 85 are both great choices for neck position. We use both. The 85 will sound warmer compared to the 60 because of the Alico V magnets. The 60 uses ceramic magnets and will be brighter sounding (which can be very cool in the neck position since the natural sound of the neck position is warmer than bridge position).

Hi Todd,

Its ok, i got some feedbacks from EMG on this.

Thanks !

Todd B. ESP

Hi Shahril, OK, great to hear that!

Cade M.

Are EMGs compatible with this guitar? I own it and I was just wandering if there is room in the compartment for the 9v.

Todd B. ESP

Hi Cade, Yes EMG's can be installed. But you need to change out all the pots and the jack, so all the wiring has to be replaced. There is enough room in the cavity. You can wrap the battery in foam and put it in with the other controls.

Dan M

Why were these changed from NT to bolt on?

Todd B. ESP

Hi Dan, many models go through changes over the years. This model has been bolt on in more recent years.

diego o.

the ltd bridge is the same as a floyd rose special?

Todd B. ESP

Hi Diego, It is not exactly the same. However it works the same. Floyd Rose offers many levelsĀ  of bridges for manufacturers. The LTD by FR bridge is made by the same factory but is offered for a less expensive price point guitar.
