Overview

The ESP LTD EC-401FMV electric guitar features a single-cutaway vintage-thickness mahogany body with a spectacular flame maple top for superior resonance and stunning beauty. The mahogany set neck has a thin U-shaped contour with a satin finish and 22 extra jumbo frets resulting in a perfect combination of ultra-comfortable feel, fast playability and outstanding sustain. The black open-coil DiMarzio 36th anniversary pickups, which possess a soft magnetic field and sweet tone, forge a perfect balance between warmth and clarity and arm this guitar with the ability to go from clean to distorted by pick attack alone. The split coil feature on both pickups further expands the versatility of this beautiful instrument. The ESP LTD EC-401FMV includes a push/pull tone control for splitting both pickups and is handsomely appointed with black nickel hardware, white/black/white body and headstock binding, white neck binding and a matching figured maple headcap.

    Comments about ESP LTD EC-401FMV Electric Guitar:

    Guitar plays like an old friend, like I've owned it for years. Good heft, but nowhere near as heavy as your vintage Gibsons. Really liking to 22-fret scale as opposed to ESP's 24-fret standards, feels more like a Les Paul, especially with the rounded neck profile. The satin finish on the neck is also just great, feels fast & comfortable. Being a Seymour Duncan kinda guy, the DiMarzios were a most pleasant surprise. The 36th anniversary PAFs respond insanely to pick attack, & the coil taps can make this guitar sound like it shouldn't. My only complaint is that the flame maple top is WAY too pronounced in the photos. Very dark burst in reality, and the matched headstock is almost impossible to see in most light. Still looks fantastic, but nowhere near as sexy as the catalogue pics. But whatever. Overall, thing feels amazing hanging around my neck & in my hands, definitely going to be THE live workhorse for quite a while.
