Rob Arnold Unboxes the LTD SN-1 HT

Respected ESP-playing riffmaster Rob Arnold (formerly of Chimaira) unboxes the new LTD Deluxe SN-1 HT and puts it through its paces with a first-impression jam. This guitar has an outstanding textured sandblasted finish in Black, with matching black components and black matte pickguard, and offers bolt-on construction with a swamp ash body and thin U-shaped roasted maple neck. Other features of the SN-1 HT include 22 extra-jumbo stainless steel frets and dot abalone inlays, a Macassar ebony fingerboard that's scalloped from frets 17-22, a single Fishman Open Core Classic pickup with a push-pull control to activate its multiple voicings, and a Hipshot hardtail bridge with string-thru-body.

Beautiful guitar!  Love the woods used on the fingerboard and neck, and the black finish and woodgrain texture of the body.  A dark tortoiseshell pickguard might be nice for contrast...
