ESP have unveiled six new LTD 400 series guitars geared towards the pocket conscious shredder, featuring sparkling metallic finishes and a whole lot of tonal grunt.
First off to bat is is the LTD EC-400, a model based on ESP's acclaimed Eclipse singlecut loaded with EMG 60 and 81 active pickups. The EC-400 also features a mahogany body with a three-piece set neck, as well as Grover tuners to keep it all together and a brooding Black Pearl Fade Metallic finish. It's a certified riff machine - feast your eyes on it below.
Looking for something with a bit of bite? Wrap your fangs around the Viper-400, boasting a set of Seymour Duncan vintage '59 and hot-rodded JB pickups for a venomous tonal response. This one's also got a gnarly Pinkberry Fade Metallic finish (arguably the best finish name ever), and includes a mahogany body, three-piece set mahogany neck and a 24.75" scale to offer a familiar feel and playing response.
For those more inclined towards super-strats and the like, the M-400 will be right up your alley. The M-400 features a thin U shaped bolt-on maple neck for ultimate shredabilty, as well as a Floyd Rose Special bridge and a reverse headstock for that distinctive '80s aesthetic. This piece of kit is also decked out with a pair of direct mounted Seymour Duncan Jazz and Custom-5 humbuckers, as well as a spacey Solar Fade Metallic finish. Make sure to wear your sunglasses when you're shredding up and down on this bad boy.
For something a bit more contemporary, the LTD H-400 is guaranteed to please with its fixed bridge, string-thru mahogany body for added tone and sustain and a three-piece U-shaped maple neck to glide up and down the fretboard. This one's also fitted with Seymour Duncan Jazz and Custom-5 humbuckers, and features a lavish Crimson Fade Metallic finish.
Combining the designs of the two aforementioned models is the LTD MH-400FR, which features a neck-thru-body construction, a Floyd Rose Special tremolo and EMG 85 and 81 active pickups. This one comes in a Blue Fade Pearl Metallic finish, and also includes Grover tuners for ultimate tuning stability. There's also a trem-less version of this shred machine below, called the MH-400NT, which features a string-thru TOM bridge and a Violet Pearl Fade Metallic finish - so many options!
