Minimalist setup

ESP's LTD Heavy Metal 1 solidbody electric guitar is built for hardcore duty. The setup on this one is sure to bring a smile to your face: ESP fitted this axe with a single EMG 81 pickup at the bridge. Built for serious shred, this high-output active humbucker is a first-call choice for some of the most respected metal guitarists. Perfect for lead passages but equally well suited for rhythm work, the '81's fat sound attacks aggressively. Poured through a lone volume pot, with no other controls and no magnetic pull from additional pickups, the tonal purity of this single-pickup axe is undeniable; it provides a minimalist setup for the purist.
