Despite being renowned for their budget-friendly guitars, ESP's LTD factory have plenty of premium-quality tricks up their sleeve. Take the LTD 400 series for example, a range that have been designed specifically with professional performing and recording musicians in mind, sold at a price that's attainable for casual players.
A sturdily built, affordable shredding-machine
The Ltd M-400M has been crafted to last. Featuring a bolt-on neck construction, classic M-style extra thin flat neck profile, and exquisite Symour Duncan pickups, this is certainly a guitar that would be an asset to any professional guitarist's arsenal.
The M-400M can thank it's warm and inviting tone on the combination of high-output Seymour Duncan Jazz and Custom pickups.
The Jazz pickup is an incredibly versatile neck-position humbucker that's perfect for most styles of music. It features an Alnico 5-bar magnet and a special coil wind to give it a glassy treble response and full, tight bass, while scooped mids help each note to sing clearly even under extreme high gain and speed.
In the bridge position you'll find a Seymour Duncan Custom 5 humbucker. This hot humbucker uses a small ceramic magnet and custom-wound coils to dish out an awesome tone, with tight lows, a bump to the upper midrange for more character and crunch, and an airy high-end that cuts right through heavy distortion and achieves fantastic crystal-clear tones.
The sturdily constructed mahogany body with bolt-on neck has been expertly designed to withstand life on the road. The neck itself is of an Extra-Thin-Flat profile, ideal for super-fast shredding and riffs, whilst the locking nut and Floyd Rose Special bridge work perfectly in conjunction with the locking nut to ensure that the tuning and intonation of the guitar isn't affected regardless of how agressively you strum or use the whammy bar. To top it off, the Natural finish on the Mahogany top stands out in stark contrast to the matte black hardware, making for a truly unique and simple professional look.
You get all of this for a little more than £800. It may sound like a lot, but when you're buying a professional-grade instrument that's built to last for many years regardless of how regularly you play it, you'll soon realise that it's an investment worth making.
