Overview

The ESP LTD Deluxe MH-1000 electric guitar features a set-thru 3-piece maple neck, mahogany body with gorgeous carved maple top, and a rosewood fretboard. The thin, U-shaped neck with 24 extra jumbo frets provides comfort and speed. An EMG-81 humbucker at the bridge and an 85 at the neck provide plenty of power and note definition. Grover tuners and an FR locking nut keep you tuned and intoned, so you'll sound your best. Volume, tone and a 3-way toggle give you options with simplicity. Genuine Floyd Rose bridge let you dive bomb the night away. Black hardware, offset abalone block inlays and white with abalone purfling finish off a great look.

Set-thru neck construction is an innovative technique in which the neck is glued to the body (like a set neck), however the traditional bulky heel is carved away (similar to neck-thru-body construction). This makes access to the ESP MH-1000's upper frets and the neck-to-body transition much smoother. Just as on a set neck, you will get a combination of tone from both the neck and body with the set-thru construction. The sound will depend on the types of wood used, but generally will have a fuller, warmer tone when compared to most neck-thru-body electric guitars.

    Comments about ESP LTD Deluxe MH-1000 Electric Guitar with EMGs:

    This guitar blew me away, and specially at this price point. Just for reference my main guitar is a Gibson Les Paul Custom shop, which I love-- However, this guitar has nothing to envy. It has an incredible, powerful presence. I still cannot believe the quality of the guitar, easily competes with guitars worth 3 times as much and I am not exaggerating. I wanted something different from my Les Paul but did not want to spend more than 1,000 so I thought I would give this guitar a shot. My expectations were not high at all, but it has exceed these expectations ten-fold. I highly recommend this guitar for hard rock and metal.

      Comments about ESP LTD Deluxe MH-1000 Electric Guitar with EMGs:

      Ive played guitars since i was 5 . Im 41 . Bands , concerts , auditions . You name it ive done it . Ive owned fenders , jacksons , ibanez , PRS , schecters , les pauls , etc. etc n and so on . I bought this guitar used because ive always wanted an ESP . So I played some very expensive ESP models and then decided to pick up this LTD model and plug it in and give a whirl . Sooo glad i did . This played just as well as any other high end Japanese made ESP models . Better even than some . Comfortable..fast neck..excellent hardware , electronics and construction . The tones it put out are solid for any style or genre of playing . I ABUSED the tremelo and the Floyd Rose held tune like it should .

      I will never buy another guitar as long as ESP keeps putting this model out .

      Dont drop thousands of dollars on a higher end guitar . Of this is your price range buy this guitar with COMPLETE confidence .

      If this guitar sounds like krap , then its because of what its plugged into .

      Buy this guitar . Seriously .

      I got mine at steal used with a case . FLAWLESS.

      Great piece of equipment, before purchasing this I researched a lot about guitars that were in my budget and ended up buying this from Music123 and believe me I am not disappointed at all.Even after using it for almost 5 years it is still in perfect shape.

      Comments about ESP LTD Deluxe MH-1000 Electric Guitar with EMGs:

      I have fallen in love with ESP/LTD guitars the past 6 months. They have a unique combination of an Ibanez prestige and a Les Paul. The neck is rounded like a Les Paul, easy to play, smooth, and clean, yet you also get all the perks of a metal guitar (Floyd Rose), lock down tuners. So you have a lot of versatility with this guitar.

      I played it once in a GC store and bought it right on the spot. Unbeatable price for a fully loaded guitar. The EMG pick-ups are a nice added bonus. Lots of power, but I play through a Marshall too.

      The only thing I would say is a negative, is,if you like, and are used to playing lighter weight guitars like Ibanez, Jackson, Charvel, Fender this guitar is heavier. It is like a Les Paul. I have played blues, hard rock, jazz, and metal, with this guitar and found it to be flawless.

      No guitar I have played has been perfect, but this is pretty close, and for the price you can't beat it. I probably wouldn't recommend it for a beginner, but if you're an intermediate to advanced player this is your axe!

      One monster of a guitar

      Comments about ESP LTD Deluxe MH-1000 Electric Guitar with EMGs:

      Man ive played many different brands, heard many different tones, this guitar does it all! It has amazing cleans but like the other reviews state, when you kick on distortion you will be blown away at how great this guitar is a hitting every harmonic possible and the sustain it keeps when holding chords and notes. Throw some effects in with it and you can pretty much obtain any tone you desire wether it be classic rock, blues, and of course heavy metal. I would highly recommomend this guitar if you want top notch quality and craftsmanship without the outragous gibson like price tag.

      It took 4 guitars to finally get one that didn't have something wrong with it! It blew my mind that it took that many to get it right and the time i waited each time i sent it back was insane initself! The real kicker is musicians friend not once offered me anything for the inconvenience NOTHING not even a pic! So i must say i will never purchase through musicians friend for guitars!The guitar is awesome but musician friend dropped the ball multiple times!

        Comments about ESP LTD Deluxe MH-1000 Electric Guitar with EMGs:

        This guitar is a even better than I though it would be. Nice look and the pick ups sound killer. I am not very used to have a tremolo but so far I like it too. The action is good and the sound is great clean or with all the gain. I own another LTD and love both. They are great intruments for the price and even better than some more expensive ones.

          I bought this guitar last summer with the see through black design. First off I must say this is a great guitar. I love the emg's they sound great. The floyd rose makes it a pain to tune out of its standard tuning, but once it has been it stays in tune great. Perfect for rock/ metal lovers looking for a quality instrument.

            Im mainly a strat player, have a les paul so I was hesitatnt to purchase something different. Been playing metal and liked the reviews so I went for it and have to say I love this guitar. The sound, the feel and the ease to play has been thus far awesome. Cant say enough on how much Im loving this guitar. Feeling guilty that I havent picked my #1 strat up in several days!
