NOTE: Due to ongoing challenges in the global supply chain, instruments purchased from ShopESP that are not currently in stock may take an extended time frame to be delivered.

Guitars in the LTD 1000 Series are designed to offer the tone, feel, looks and quality that working professional musicians require in an instrument. The LTD M Series has always been guitar designed for shredders, and one of the best examples ever is found with the fast and extremely playable M-1000HT and the seven-string M-1007HT. With neck-thru-body construction and an extra thin U-shaped three-piece maple neck (that features a natural satin finish on the back for supreme speedy playability), the M-1000HT and M-1007HT are perfect for players who want M Series performance with the stability of a Hipshot hardtail bridge with string-thru-body design. You also get excellent tone and sonic flexibility with direct-mounted Fishman Fluence Modern Humbuckers (Alnico in the neck position, Ceramic in the bridge), with a push-pull control to activate the second voicing.

Received the guitar, been playing it every day. Amazing quality and playability. Still think it should come with a case. It's not cheap. But I love it. Fishman's are a game changer. Articulate as hell.

Todd B. ESP

Hi Joe, great to hear that! Thanks for your review!

Joe L.

There is no info about country of manufacture or fret info.(I see fret info in the comments, but why not just list it?) and....Indonesia? Korea? Mars? And no case for $1150? Yikes! Just purchased this sight unseen! (scary) I have high expectations and I'm sure they will be met. This will be my 4th LTD. Looking forward to rocking out live with it soon! \m/

Hi, All frets used in manufacturing will be nickel silver steel unless otherwise noted.

We are currently manufacturing this model in both Korea and Indonesia. However, we constantly monitor production standards at our various factories in Asia where we produce LTD models. Should we determine that a certain facility is capable of manufacturing an instrument to ESP's required standard or better, we may decide to shift production, or in some cases share production of a model, wherever that factory may be located. The guitar should be of excellent quality regardless of where it's made, and it will have passed our own quality assurance testing.

We appreciate you trusting us to deliver you a quality instrument and hope you do enjoy your new guitar when you receive it.

I had the m1007ht I had to sell for cash unfortunately but luckily my wife ordered me the m1000ht for my birthday! I absolutely loved the 1007 I was just over playing a 7 string. I seriously can’t talk good enough about this guitar. Phill labonte the lead singer for all that remains turned me on to this guitar. This is the first guitar I’ve bought more then once! It plays amazing! Stays in tune it has an amazing sound to it. And it feels really good when you hold. If your considering ordering this you will not regret it! The only down side it’s been on back order for a month now :/


Are the frets stainless steel?

Todd B. ESP

Hi, These frets are standard nickel silver. The new for 2021 models have stainless frets.
