MH-400B

BLACK SATIN

$849.00

The LTD 400 Series is designed with the professional performing and recording musician in mind, but is available at a price that even casual players can afford. With the MH-400B, you get a monster 27” baritone scale guitar with neck-thru-body construction. We’ve switched over to a direct-mount setup of its EMG 81/85 active pickup set, and added them to this guitar’s already-great features that include Grover tuners, a mahogany body, a fast three-piece maple neck with 24-fret pau ferro fingerboard, and a TOM bridge with string-thru-body design.

What is this guitar tune to

Carl N.

Hey Robert, B standard, you can view all of our tunings via our FAQ page, hope this helps!

Leo A.

Hello. Will this guitar need any modifications in order to fit thick gauges? I'm considering a 74 for the 6th. My current guitar (different brand) needed it and I'm not sure I'm willing to do that in this price range. Thanks!

Carl N.

Hey Leo, yes the nut will have to be cut to accommodate the larger strings and the instrument would need a full setup after such a change.  Has nothing to do with the price range, an ESP custom shop instrument would still need all of this done after making such a drastic change to the strings.  

Leo A.

Hi Carl, thanks for the response! I was aware of the things you mentioned; I was thinking more along the lines of the bridge and tuning heads needing to be drilled or replaced, which was a major headache. I've seen (cheap) guitars that couldn't fit a 46 stock. I take it I shouldn't be worried then? Thanks again!

Carl N.

I see what you mean Leo, might need a little bit of modifications at that end, though these don't take too much time or effort.  Largest string we use on guitars is a 68 I believe, so a 74 might need some word in order to fit and function properly.

ANTHONY M.

I have this guitar and its a beast ..really is...ruined all my other guitars for me lol....mine however has an Evertune in it.    I would buy another one for a back up because i just love this guitar...can that be done through ESP?  have Blackouts in it also.  Pure Metal! \m/   not many other ESP/LTD 27" guitars out there.

Carl N.

Hey Anthony, the instruments shown on our site are only available within the specifications listed within their descriptions.  While any pickup can be installed after purchase, we do not currently install alternate pickups than what the instrument is specified to come equipped with.

Tom D.

Todd B. ESP Carl N. how much difference in price do you think it would be if I had this made through the custom shop, exact same specs except not a baritone. Standard scale length 25.5

This guitar is absolute brilliant and looks awesome.

Carl N.

Hey Tom, you would need to submit a custom order form to one of our authorized dealers for a quote on your build but most ESP custom shop instruments start around $5,000 - $6,000.

Garret T.

Is this model available with a floating bridge?

Carl N.

Hey Garret, though we do make a few MH models with a Floyd Rose this will be the only configuration this model is available in.  Here are the other available MH models.
