Hot-rodded Bolt-on with a Versatile Voice
The LTD M-400M solidbody electric guitar follows in a long line of ESP instruments designed for highly technical players. The mahogany body sings with warm sustain and features a Floyd Rose Special tremolo. The extra-thin flat maple neck ensures your fingers will be able to fly up and down the 24-fret rosewood fretboard. And the ESP LTD M-400M's duo of Seymour Duncan humbucking pickups will deliver anything from a clear, vintage voice to full-throated high gain with the flip of a switch.
Built for performance
Everything about the ESP LTD M-400M solidbody electric guitar is engineered to offer the fastest and most comfortable playing experience, with no extraneous additions to slow you down. The slab mahogany body offers a warm and sustaining tone that is a standard for hard rock guitars. Its deep forearm, back, and cutaway contours are expertly carved. A Floyd Rose Special double-locking tremolo is recessed into the body for up and down pitch control. And ESP even outfitted the LTD M-400M with a set of stable Grover tuners.
Neck built for speed
The ESP LTD M-400M is crafted with a bolt-on neck that is carved to elicit your fastest and most intense fretwork. The neck is carved from three pieces of maple. This construction helps maintain a great deal of stability. Its extra-thin flat profile is among the fastest-feeling in ESPs lineup, and a popular carve around Sweetwater. The neck is bolted to the mahogany body with a specially designed heel for easy access to all 24 frets. And the neck is capped with a rosewood fretboard, boasting binding and inlay work that is at once understated and aggressive.
To get the most versatility possible from the LTD M-400M, ESP loaded it with a duet of Seymour Duncan humbucking pickups. You'll find the low-output, clear-voiced Jazz SH2-N humbucker in the neck position and a Custom 5 SH-14 humbucking pickup in the bridge position. The Custom 5 is essentially a PAF-style pickup with double the output. This helps the pickup blend perfectly with the Jazz humbucker in the neck. Whether you want cleaner tones or high gain, the Jazz and Custom 5 combination will get you there.
