With its sharp looks and even sharper tone, the ESP LTD M-1001 NT electric guitar is a rock-solid weapon of choice for hard rockers and metallers seeking a stripped-down workhorse that can handle it all. Its alder body is capped with exquisite-looking quilted maple, lending a beautifully figured look to this 6-string while adding some additional high-end bite. To handle the demands of shredders everywhere, ESP shaped the LTD M-1001 NT's 3-piece maple neck to an extra-thin "U," paired with a Macassar ebony fingerboard for effortless sweeps and chord changes. A single EMG 81TW is all it takes to deliver a wide-palette of humbucking and single-coil pickup tones, with everything kept sounding pitch-perfect courtesy of LTD locking tuners up top and a Tonepros locking TOM bridge down low — aftermarket upgrades like these always perk up the ears of any gigging guitarist. For the look, sound, and feel of a pro-grade instrument at an attractive price, turn to the ESP LTD M-1001 NT for all your needs.
