(U.S. Only)
The LTD M-1007MS and M-1008MS are multi-scale guitars with the uncompromising playability and sonic power for which ESP is known worldwide. Multi-scale guitars make use of an angled fret arrangement to offer different scale lengths for the various strings of the guitar, allowing for optimal string tension, and has also been stated by many players to offer an ergonomic improvement for the fretting hand. Offering 7-string and 8-string arrangements respectively, the M-1007MS and M-1008MS have varying scale lengths of 27” - 25.5”. They are bolt-on designs with flamed maple tops over a lightweight mahogany back. Both models offer a five-piece neck made of maple and exotic purple heart wood, with a Macassar ebony fingerboard that includes offset abalone dot inlays. Top-tier components on the new M-1007MS and M-1008MS include a set of Seymour Duncan Nazgul and Sentient pickups that were custom-made for ESP with a special angled design and pole spacing optimized for the multi-scale design. A push-pull control on the tone knob allows for coil splitting, providing a wealth of flexible tones. Other components include a Hipshot multi-scale bridge and ESP locking tuners. Available in See Thru Black Satin finish.

I love the M Model guitars by ESP/LTD. I'm just curious why they would not make the headstock the same as all the other models. That's one of the coolest looking features with the M models.

Hi, thanks for your comments. We've used a couple different headstocks on our M- Series before. We appreciate you letting us know what you are looking for.

  • Just bought one of the M-1008's and I absolutely love it, but I'm having an issue with intonation on the low B and F#. I'm not a fan of 10-72 gauge strings and plan to go with a 9 gauge set. You guys know anyone around the Knoxville Tennessee area that I can trust to effectively set this up or perhaps send me some documents on properly adjusting the intonation on this beast?

Todd B. ESP

Hi Brian, Please contact our customer service department at customerservice@espguitars.com and they should be able to direct you.

Can this guitar be ordered in a left handed model?

Is this guitar actually in stock? It is not in stock in stores or any online retailers i can find. Ive actually ordered one from my usual place but they have no information on when it will be in stock.

Carl N.

this should be available again on our site later this year, unfortunately I cannot speak for when dealers would receive theirs, it would be best to reach out to your dealer for this information
