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.

This guitar is almost perfect and I'm thinking of getting it. However I'd love to replace the Grover tuners with locking tuners. What are the measurements of the stock tuners?

Acquired one of these guitars recently, but I do not play detuned, play only in standard E tuning.  Can I use this guitar for standard E tuning with .010 gauge strings without negative impact to tension, stability and tuning?  Am especially curious about the impact of the deep belly curve on the back and how that would impact higher standard tension.  Thanks!

Carl N.

Yes, when setup properly you can play in standard tuning.

This guitar has already got standard tuning with the addition of a LOW B string. It doesn't have your regular high E.It is strung from B to B.  The neck is longer as it is a BARITONE. Tighter feeling strings for lower tuning and stability.

Can this guitar setup with 13-72 gauge strings do drop B flat tuning? If so I will but one

Carl N.

Most, if not all of our instruments could be setup with these specifications if done properly

Question about the EMG pickups: While I’m fond of the saturated and aggressive sound active pickups provide, can they deal with cleaner tones without breaking up?

With pickups this hot, I don’t know if this guitar is right for me. I need a guitar that does both and I still want to be able to play my quiet and laid back ambient tunes without feeling like I’m going into djent mode.

I mean, I love djent, I just don’t want to always djent, Y’know?

Also, is a 13-70 set good for this guitar? Will I need any major adjustments or will it the nut handle the strings just fine? Im a heavy handed player who likes to dig in with her picking hand to I have to compensate for it. 

Thanks!

tone and string gauges are very subjective, while this instrument can make a multitude of tones ultimately you can tailor this to your tastes via your amp or effects line.  It is always recommended to have your instrument professionally setup when changing string gauges or tuning.

Which is the lowest tuning I can play on it? Does it play well in low E?

Carl N.

With the right strings and a proper setup you shouldn't have any issues playing in that tuning...though maybe you'd rather play a bass at that end.

Declan T.

I actually tune mine to low L. L for LOWWWWWWWW
