As the guitarist for Of Mice & Men, Alan Ashby needed a guitar that would give him both the sonic power for his music along with the sturdy roadworthiness for high-energy shows and a relentless touring schedule. New for 2021, the LTD AA-1 is an update to Alan’s previous signature model, adding a killer Black Satin finish/gold hardware design theme. The body is a classic traditional shape, but everything about the AA-1 is intended for high-performance modern music, including its neck-thru-body construction, fast 3-piece thin U-shaped mahogany neck, Macassar ebony fingerboard, 24 extra-jumbo stainless steel frets, and single EMG 81 active pickup with brushed gold cover. This guitar has sustain for days, that's increased even more by the TonePros locking TOM bridge with string-thru-body design. Includes ESP hardshell case.
