M-1 CUSTOM '87


M-1 CUSTOM '87

While ESP first got started in 1975 as a small repair shop in Tokyo, it was really toward the mid ‘80s when our guitars and basses grabbed the attention of players around the world. The LTD ’87 Series are faithful recreations of this set of instruments from ESP’s 1987 catalog. The LTD M-1 Custom ’87, based on the legendary original ESP M-1 model, offers neck-thru body construction for fast access to the highest frets. Its comfortable alder body and three-piece extra thin U-shaped maple neck are designed for speed and smooth playability. The M-1 Custom ’87 features a Floyd Rose 1000 bridge without a recess route and a single Seymour Duncan Distortion TB-6 pickup with a push-pull control for coil splitting, and an EMG PA-2 boost switch for when you need that extra push of raw power.

my main guitar. it is awesome

I've had mine about a month now absolutely an amazing guitar. Very stable and fast neck. After a quick set up with my preferred strings and a miner truss rod adjustment it has a super low action  and plays very fast and smooth. The pickup is awesomely versatile with the coil tap and emg power boost. Anyone who's on the fence about buying this one I highly recommend getting it.

Does it have the same fretboard radius it had back in 87 350mm?

Hi, Specs may hot be exactly the same as what was produced in '87. However it is the general look and feel of models from that era that we tried to incorporate into this series.
