ESP LTD M-1000 - Purple Natural Burst
What do you get when you cram great tonewoods, uncompromising craftsmanship, and player-centric features into the same guitar? The answer is the LTD M-1000. This solidbody beast's dual EMG pickup configuration produces hard-hitting tones that are perfect for rock, metal, and any genre you can think of. Guitarists around Sweetwater appreciate the 3-piece maple neck that boosts resonance and sustain. The ferocious tone comes from a pair of EMG pickups — a 66TW in the neck and a 57TW in the bridge position. For extra sonic options, each pickup is equipped with a coil-split to harness some single-coil spank. And for those that need to dive-bomb with the best of them, this guitar has a Floyd Rose tremolo bridge that enables expressive performance. To sum it all up, the LTD M-1000 is a bona fide rocker that's ready for high-gain heroics.
Lightweight body is built for performance
The M-1000 was built to turn heads with its good looks, then wow the audience with its tone. It all begins with a 3-piece maple neck in a neck-through-body configuration with increased sustain. Two alder wings are attached to each side of the neck to boost resonance and provide a well-balanced tone. Finally, an eye-catching poplar burl top is added to the body. Once it's fully assembled, the body receives extra carving for player comfort. You'll appreciate the generous belly cut that makes onstage performance comfortable, and when you strap on your new LTD for the first time, you'll appreciate the deep cutaways that give you total access to the upper frets.
3-piece maple neck plays effortlessly
The M-1000 is equipped with a 3-piece neck-through maple neck. Carved into LTD's Extra Thin "U" profile, this neck is just bulky enough to grab chords, but more than thin enough to stay out of your way during intense lead exploration. The back of the neck has a slick satin finish to help you reach new playing heights, and you'll love the glassy feel of the Macassar ebony fingerboard and extra-jumbo frets. You'll enjoy effortless playability from your first lick.
Active EMG humbucking pickups deliver stellar tones
The LTD M-1000's signature tone comes from a pair of EMG active pickups. The 66/57 set blends old-school tone with new-school power. You'll be able to harness crunchy PAF-style tones, thanks to the addition of Alnico V magnets and steel pole pieces. However, you still get EMG's signature headroom and punch that really drive your amplifier. While these pickups are certainly designed for high-gain applications, they have a smooth character that makes them perfect for genres and playing styles of all kinds. You won't have to change instruments to get a single-coil sound either! A push-pull volume pot takes care of coil-splitting duties, so you can focus on uninterrupted playing.
