ESP unveil six LTD 400 series models

Six New Metallic Shred Sticks!

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!
