Guitars in the LTD 1000 Series are designed to offer the tone, feel, looks and quality that working professional musicians require in an instrument.

This guitar offers neck-thru-body construction with a mahogany body and flamed maple top with a 3-piece maple neck and Macassar ebony fingerboard. Components on the MH-1001HS include a Seymour Duncan Hot Rails (neck) and Pegasus (Bridge) pickup, with a push-pull control for coil splitting, as well as a Floyd Rose SE bridge with stainless steel screws, and Grover tuners. Available in Violet Shadow Fade and Black Cherry Fade finishes.

Hi, could you tell more about tremolo, please?
It says 1000SE (which is low profile version of Original and goes retail around $200+), while on photos it looks like Special (with retail around $90). 
Thank you. It's a beautiful guitar!

Hi Marcin, THe 1000 series is a bridge produced in Asia by Floyd Rose and has the same specs as Original FLoyd Rose. It is not available for purchase on its own, only for OEM production by companies like us and other brands. The "SE" portion just means that we upgraded the screws to stainless screws (for the nut clamping screws, saddle hold down screws and the string lock screws). Although I can't give you a retail value I can say that it compares to the Original Floyd in Quality and materials but with a lower price, and much superior quality compared to the Special. Hope this helps!

Hi! Thank you kindly for such a wide answer. I can't wait to have one  Those beautiful guitars are still to come to UK, but I'm on wait-list already
I'm not bothered with FR prices - this was only a kind of way to express quality difference to me. 
I was looking for a HS guitar with LTD neck shape and mahogany body for long. Now it is to come  Thank you!

Todd B. ESP

Hi Marcin, OK glad we could help. And hope that you can get your guitar soon, and when you get it please let us know if you have any more questions.


Hi, have you thought about releasing a version with an active pickup at the bridge? For example an EMG 57.

Alexander L.

That's my only issue with this guitar. I wish that it had EMGs in it. 

Todd B. ESP

Hi Alexander, Thanks for your comments/suggestion.

Todd B. ESP

Hi Chris, We only released the first version with passive pickups. Currently there is no plan to make an active version. Thank you for your suggestion. It's always difficult choosing the 1 pickup to use when so many players have different pickups that they choose for their sound.

Hi, can you tell me the type of mahogany used?. And also the approximate weight fo the guitar?

Todd B. ESP

Hi, we use Southeast Asian mahogany on our production instruments. Approximate weight should be around 8.5 lbs.

aragami k.

i gonna get this in lefty..bout time u guys making crazy color for lefty too instead of just plain black or greyy

Todd B. ESP

Hey aragami, thanks for your comment. Glad we could get you one of the new models as an option. I know it must be frustrating as a LH player because the options are very limited.

Are the new 2019 LTD's still built in South Korea or Indonesia?

Todd B. ESP

Hi Bryan, Most all of the new product is built in Indonesia. There may be a couple models such as new signature models and the multiscale guitars made in Korea, but we build most of our LTD high end products in Indonesia now.
