Optimized for Metal Fury

Just one look at the ESP LTD FRX-401 tells you this solidbody electric guitar is optimized for metal fury. When you take the stage with this axe, the rad FRX silhouette assures that all eyes will be on you. It only gets better when you plug into your favorite amp and start playing, fortified by a duo of active EMG humbuckers that deploy an arsenal of tone from spanky cleans to sonic blitzkrieg. And thanks to its thin U-shaped neck and buttery-smooth rosewood fingerboard, the ESP LTD FRX-401 plays fast and furious. Show 'em who's boss with the ESP LTD FRX-401.

ESP LTD FRX-401 Solidbody Electric Guitar at a Glance:
  • Active EMG pickups deliver impressive versatility
  • This guitar looks amazing under stage lights
  • ESP LTD - the perfect guitar for rock or metal
  • ESP guitars are built to rock hard
Active EMG pickups deliver impressive versatility

The ESP LTD FRX-401 is fitted with a pair of hot active humbuckers - an EMG 60 in the neck position and an EMG 81 at the bridge. A classic combo. There's a reason top metal guitarists use active pickups: they rock hard. The EMG 81 has become a first-call lead pickup choice for some of the most respected metal guitarists of all time, while the EMG 60 provides the perfect tonal complement. Stirred with a 3-way toggle and poured through volume and tone pots, this heady brew is a veritable tonefest that gives you everything from chimey cleans to searing hot shred - and all points in between.

This guitar looks amazing under stage lights

No doubt about it - with its menacing FRX body shape, no-nonsense black hardware, and offset dot fingerboard inlays, the ESP LTD FRX-401 looks killer. A class act all the way. If you're into heavier rock and metal, then this guitar is designed for you. Onstage, the ESP LTD FRX-401 projects pure attitude. At Sweetwater, we're stone serious about sound... but we're not immune to a little stage vanity. Look at it this way: as you're bludgeoning your audience with monstrous power chords, you might as well look good doing it. And with the ESP LTD FRX-401, you will!

Favorite LTD so dar

The LTD series has always been a go to for me, and this latest addition to the line does not disappoint. I was very interested in the EII version of this body, but I don't really like Floyd Rose and prefer stop tail bridges.One thing to note: the string spacing on this guitar is quite a bit wider than the other LTDs I have, something to be mindful of when purchasing.
