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:

    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.

    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.

    Amazing.

    By Dylan

    from Russell KS

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

    I was kinda skeptical about the price at first, due to it being the actual first real guitar I purchased. Before I was using just an Ibanez gio with a boss 100 gt pedal, Now that I have this, I don't even want a pedal. I also ordered a valveking 412, and It's just amazing. Everything got here 2 days after purchased, the cab the very next day. The quality of this guitar just completely blew my mind. Once you pick it up, You're definitely not gonna want to put it down!!!!

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

    Knowing nothing about guitars at the time i picked up this baby on a whim. Not sure what to expect this guitar has held up for the past 3 years ive had it! Truly a wonderful guitar with an awesome sound and the jumbo frets make playing fast a breeze! I recommend this to anyone that likes thrash, metal, or even clean it has wonderful tones all around!

    Excellent Guitar, too good for the money!

    By Roger Gordon

    from Caro, MI

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

    I have owned this guitar now for just over a year. This guitar amazes me on multiple levels. I bought the Floyd Rose version with see thru black cherry. The neck of this guitar is extremely thin and is a very comfortable neck to hold. The Floyd Rose stays in tune and doesn't get out of tune or pitch at all. The tone of this guitar is quite good....EMG 81/85 combo is difficult to beat Imo. The craftsmanship of this guitar as well as the components used are outstanding for the actual price. After a year of playing, it still plays like new and I would assume it'll play like this for a very long time...as long as it is taken care of. The biggest thing I noticed about this guitar is you can REALLY, REALLY Shred with it...quite easily and the feel of playing it alone, is well worth it hands down.

    By Randy Lightbody

    from Owensville Mo

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

    I ordered this guitar and then whent to guitar center to see what i had it was not there but the ones made in china was. so i played on it and thought if mine is like this it will go back and i will get a schecher. thank god that was not the same as mine. the mh-1000 is so much better then the cheeper ones from china. if you are thinking between this and the china one go with this one the look are great but the fill is were this one wins it is like nothing i have ever played.It is soo smooth it is like the strings are on glass when you bend them.It is also very loud the pickups have good sound.

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

    if you are looking for a great gutar this is it. I have had it for a week and the more i play it the better it fills. i can not stress enough this is a very easy gutar to play. the strings bend like they are on glass very smooth. no problem with the strings staying in tune, i never had to tune it it was ready out of the box.I orderd it with out looking at it in the store and be for i got it I went to gutar center and all they had was the cheaper ones (made in china) in the store and thought if it was like this it is going back. yea it is not going any where i love this thing.

    Well Made and worth the money!

    By Roger Gordon

    from Caro, Michigan

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

    I bought the black cherry version and I have to say...very very well pleased. I bought this guitar several days ago and am still awestruck with how well it plays and the beauty of it. The finish and overall look of this guitar is stunning. Very sharp and very well crafted. Emg pickups - when I first began playing this guitar I noticed that the pickups are very full sounding. Much fuller than ordinary passive pickups. These pickups are designed to be very high output...so you can literally do harmonics on nearly every fret with great ease. Clean tone sounds great on these pickups too...so don't let the "emg" pickups fool you. The neck pickup, emg 85, has a very thick full tone. While the 81 has a thinner, full tone. Distortion sounds amazing on this guitar...any distortion with high gain. The Grover tuners on this guitar blew me away, simply because how smooth they turn...you can tell they are high quality just by turning them. Floyd Rose Trem is A+ without a doubt and the look of the trem is amazing as well and will stay in tune with no problems. The Trem has a dark chrome finish...different but it fits the guitar well. You can dive bomb easily and there's no tuning problems that I've noticed at all. The neck is thin not ultra thin like the M-1000 but it is still thin enough to shred and solo to your hearts content. Overall, This guitar is worth much more than what the asking price is. If I have any cons with this guitar, it's the painted neck and the Fret Bars (The bars that distinguish fret from fret). I am not used to painted necks. At first glance I was a little dismayed and worried that it would slow my playing. You get used to it quickly and in my opinion helps my playing and is faster. The Fretting on the guitar, as mentioned above, is taller than what I'm used to. This may be because it's a new guitar but I also got used to this fact rapidly as well. The strings are very close to the fretboard and this helps tremendously. On standard Bridges, the Strings are usually much higher off the neck....which is what I'm used to. One last thing to note...the intonation was spot on right out of the box and already in tune. Packing was great as well! So either way, almost no cons, very well constructed and beautiful...a very very satisfied buyer!

    One Hell of a guitar

    By michael

    from beaumont texas

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

    honestly, i like this cause it's tone and quality just suits people who like heavy metal or in that catagory. it's neck is perfect for sweeping and just any solo. the emg's it has make the sustain go on for a long time hen you need to fix your self up like if you are on a bad posture, so basically the note stays for a really long time. it sounds nice in D standard, drop B, and C. for its price it is one guitar that sticks up for it's self. NO doubt it is totally worth it. one of the best i played
