As the guitarist for Of Mice & Men, Alan Ashby needs a guitar that gives him both the sonic power for his music along with sturdy roadworthiness for his high-energy shows and relentless touring schedule. In 2021, ESP updated Alan’s previous signature model, with this LTD AA-1 electric guitar, adding a killer Black Satin finish/gold hardware design theme that extends all the way to its 24 extra-jumbo Jescar EVOgold frets. The body is a classic traditional shape, but everything about the LTD AA-1 is intended for high-performance modern music, including it's neck-thru-body construction, fast 3-piece thin U-shaped mahogany neck, Macassar ebony fingerboard, and single EMG 81 active pickup with brushed gold cover. The LTD AA-1 has sustain for days, increased even more by the TonePros locking TOM bridge with string-thru-body design.

The LTD AA-1 comes with an ESP hardshell case.
