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.

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/

Todd B. ESP

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.


Are the frets stainless steel?

Todd B. ESP

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

Hi. Does it have coil split?

Todd B. ESP

Hi, No, this model of pickup does not offer coil split (it is not possible with this type of active pickup). But it does offer 2 voicings (Voice 1 & Voice 2), so you can have a variety of tones more than just one.

Hey. Recently got this from andertons. What an absolute killer guitar. Mine says M-1000 and not M-1000HT like others do and what is says on the pictures. Anyone know why?

Todd B. ESP

Hi, glad to hear you like your guitar! The HT just stands for HardTail which doesn't  need to be printed on the cover. Most likely the photo on our site is from our original sample and needs to be updated.

Silas H.

Will these also be updated to stainless steel frets, like the other new 1000-series ltds?
