Guitars in the LTD 1000 Series are designed to offer the tone, feel, looks, and quality that working professional musicians need in an instrument. If you want the speedy, high-performance abilities of the M Series in a guitar with special appointments that will let you stand out in a crowded field, the M-1001NT is for you. This guitar adds an amazing quilted maple top over its alder body, finished in transparent Charcoal Burst that allows the figured wood to grab the spotlight. More than just a great looking guitar, the M-1001NT offers performance features like its extra-thin U-shaped maple neck, and a compound neck radius for maximum speed and comfort. The Macassar ebony fingerboard features 24 extra-jumbo frets and offset mother-of-pearl dot inlays. Its reverse headstock has a matching finish in quilted maple, and white binding on the neck and headstock. Components on the M-1001NT include LTD locking tuners, a TonePros locking TOM bridge with string-thru-body, and a single aggressive direct-mount EMG 81TW with push-pull control for coil splitting.
