(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.

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

How thick is the flamed maple top? Or is it just a veneer?

Carl N.

This will be a thicker veneer around 2mm

Do you need to have custom pick ups made if you want to change them? I have one of these, love it, want another but what to put black winters in it,

Carl N.

Yes, unless a company is offering slanted pickups like the ones standard in this model you would need to have them custom made,

Alternatively, you could send them to Duncan's custom shop to be rewound. It takes about a month, but you'd be waiting a month for new customs anyway. If you have a backup or it's not urgent, definitely worth it. Rewinds are also cheaper than buying new.
