(U.S. Only)

Guitars in the LTD 1000 Series are designed to offer the tone, feel, looks and quality that working professional musicians require in an instrument. Based on the traditional look of ESP’s Snapper guitar shape, the SN-1000HT adds the high-performance tools needed for contemporary music. It has a swamp ash body at 25.5” scale, with a roasted maple neck and maple fingerboard with stainless steel frets that include scalloping from #17-22. The SN-1000HT offers a dual humbucker pickup configuration, employing a Seymour Duncan sentient in the neck and a high-output Pegasus in the bridge, with push-pull control to split the pickups. It also includes a Hipshot fixed hardtail bridge. The SN-1000HT is offered in a sandblasted Purple Blast finish.

Really like it, but not the color.

I’m a lefty, so there’s no choice. Will there be more colors for lefty’s?

I would love to see this guitar with an ebony fretboard!


Carl N.

thanks for the insight!

Jim N.

Now this one is special. Unfortunately the finish is a bit weird for me. I think a lot of people would like to see hardtail guitars like this in the future!

Carl N.

thanks for sharing your opinion!

Hi, when will the lefty version of this guitar become available? I am quite excited for it. Will it be in 2020?

Carl N.

The lefty model is new for 2020, it may be best to inquire with your ESP dealer as to when they would be incoming near you.


I've had mine for about a week and, man, you guys really knocked it out of the ballpark with this one. Neck, fretboard, fixed bridge, and the body's wood grain are SO comfortable, it really feels like an extension of one's body.

Carl N.

glad you are enjoying it
