Guitars in the LTD 1000 Series are designed to offer the tone, feel, looks, and quality that working professional musicians need in an instrument. For a truly spectacular example of the MH shape, the MH-1000 delivers it with an outstanding arched quilted maple top in a transparent Black Ocean finish. White binding helps define the outline of this excellent guitar, and ties into the look of its chrome hardware. Using neck-thru construction, the MH-1000 pairs a mahogany body to a three-piece extra thin u-shaped neck. The neck features a compound radius for maximum speed and comfort. Its Macassar ebony fingerboard features 24 extra-jumbo stainless steel frets and offset white pearloid block inlays. Components on the MH-1000 include a Floyd Rose 1000SE bridge with stainless steel screws, Grover tuners, and a set of direct-mount Fishman Fluence Modern Humbuckers (alnico in the neck position, ceramic in the bridge), with a push-pull control to activate each pickup’s second voicing, and brushed stainless steel covers.
I wanted this guitar when I first saw it announced by ESP in January '22. The guitar is beautiful, the photos online do not do it justice. In person it is just stunning! Fit and finish is perfect I have not been able to find a single flaw. The frets are perfect and smooth as glass. I like the look of the stainless steel screws on the Floyd. The Fishman pickups are impressive. I never heard them before and was uncertain about them when purchasing this guitar but they sound very good clean and with high gain, The neck is thin and fast and extremely comfortable to play. The guitar overall sounds and plays like a guitar cost twice as much. I have two E-II M11's this is my first LTD and I am VERY impressed overall. Could you make this in Black Cherry also?
