ESP LTD H-1000QM - See Thru Black Cherry
Special Order

Aggressive Tone, Elegant Design

The ESP LTD H-1000QM solidbody electric guitar is a wonderful companion for guitarists who want a fast-playing guitar with looks as elegant as its sounds are punishing. A deeply quilted maple top, matching headstock, and extensive abalone binding around the entirety of the instrument would not look out of place on a high-class gig. But the powerful EMG active humbucking-based electronics deliver a tone that is loud, clear, and perfect for pushing your amplifier into distortion. The ESP LTD H-1000QM is built to look great and offer intense performance.

  • Powerful electronics
All decked out

The first thing about the ESP LTD H-1000QM electric guitar to grab your attention is how beautifully it is decorated. The figured maple top and matching headstock's deep quilting gives the guitar the appearance of an instrument costing more than twice its price. Abalone binding lines the guitar's body, neck, and headstock. And the H-1000QM's black nickel hardware is a stark contrast to the rest of the instrument, while adding an understated dash of style.

Classic tonewood combination

Maple, mahogany, and rosewood have been put together to create exceptional electric guitars for over fifty years. The maple's clarity and sustain work in tandem with mahogany's inherent warmth and midrange character to deliver a sound that cuts through the mix while still being full. The H-1000QM's 3-piece maple neck adds even more attack and sustain to your tone. And the guitar's rosewood fretboard enhances the guitar's harmonic content while showcasing the abalone inlay and binding.

Powerful electronics

You'll get to know the true personality of the ESP LTD H-1000QM as soon as you plug it in. A set of EMG's popular 85 and 81 active humbucking pickups offers up a sound that is high output with plenty of top-end clarity and huge lows. These pickups are a favorite among metal players, and Sweetwater sells a ton of them for how well they push amps into tight-sounding distortion. Also, the simple-to-navigate control layout makes dialing in your tones intuitive and fast.

Awesome guitar tone

The active EMG 81 on this guitar are AWESOME, the neck is nice and fast and the body is finished very nicely. I stand up to play and the contour on the back was a bit deep for my playing style. All in all the build quality of the ESP LTD's are really good. I have an ESP E-II and the build quality is closer by half at half the price.
