Built to the outstanding quality of our LTD Deluxe “1000 Series” guitars and designed to offer the tone, feel, looks and quality that working professional musicians require in an instrument, the SN-1 HT is a single-pickup, hardtail version of the SN Series. You’ll first notice its outstanding textured sandblasted finish in Black, with matching black components and black matte pickguard. The SN-1 HT features bolt-on construction at 25.5” scale, with a swamp ash body and thin U-shaped roasted maple neck with 22 extra-jumbo stainless steel frets and dot abalone inlays. The Macassar ebony fingerboard is scalloped from frets 17-22 for excellent expressive performance capabilities. This guitar’s sound is driven by a Fishman Open Core Classic pickup with a push-pull control to activate its multiple voicings. The SN-1 HT also includes a Hipshot hardtail bridge with string-thru-body, and LTD locking tuners.

Are all 3 voices available with the Fluence Open Core Classic pickups in this model, or just Voice 1 and Voice 3 (via the volume pull)?

Juan A - Go find Chris Davis from The Ghost Inside on Facebook or Instagram.  I just installed an EverTune in his brand-new SN-1 and it's superb. I'll make it easy:


Would this pickguard potentially fit the Black Metal M-HT? or is the SN body different than the M bodies?

Todd B. ESP

Hi, The SN body is quite different than the M series, so I wouldn't suggest this.

Could be a little cheaper for a bolt on neck the black metal guitars are 200 cheaper for a set thru neck and still has ss frets and an active pickup 

Todd B. ESP

Hi, This model incorporates a solid swamp ash body that has been sand blasted as well as roasted maple neck.

I also usually find something to suggest or criticise, but this time no  , this guitar is perfect as it is, antique black, reverse headstock, SS jumbo frets, whats not to like. I am a buyer .

Todd B. ESP

Hi, glad you like it! Thanks for your comments.

Juan A.

I'd just like the evertune bridge...
