Guitars in the LTD 1000 Series are designed to offer the tone, feel, looks, and quality that working professional musicians need in an instrument. The SN-1000HT Fire Blast is a guitar that offers tone and playability that’s as intense as its looks. Its textured, sandblasted Fire Blast finish over a swamp ash body is incredible, and its bolt-on roasted maple neck has a compound radius for maximum speed and comfort. Its Macassar ebony fingerboard includes 22 extra-jumbo stainless steel frets, mother-of-pearl dot inlays, and is scalloped from frets 17-22. Components on the SN-1000HT Fire Blast include a black bone nut, a brushed black pickguard, dome control knobs, LTD locking tuners, and a Hipshot hardtail bridge with string thru body. It features a set of 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.
I have it for two weeks and I must say that it’s a very good guitar. The build quality is very good: no sharp fret ends, quality bridge, quality pickups and thé finish is good aside from a small scratch on the pickguard. I don’t like the design of the string tree (I prefer the rounder ones) but it’s minor and easy to change. This guitar is light and it’s a very good looking sand blasted finish. I will buy other ltd1000 on the future.
