Like what you see? All photos are of the exact instrument you will receive. This particular guitar has a few extremely light dings on the back of the neck (one near around the 9th fret favoring the treble side, and a couple at the 11th fret close to the bass side of the fretboard). We have included close-up photos so you can take a look. They are quite subtle and due to location, it is very unlikely you will feel these while playing.
The LTD M-1008MS is a multi-scale guitar with the uncompromising playability and sonic power for which ESP is known worldwide. Multi-scale guitars make use of an angled fret arrangement to offer different scale lengths for the various strings of the guitar, allowing for optimal string tension, and has also been stated by many players to offer an ergonomic improvement for the fretting hand. The scale length varies from 27” on the bottom to 25.5” on the top string.
The M-1008MS is a bolt-on design with flamed maple top over a lightweight mahogany back. It offers a five-piece neck made of maple and exotic purple heart wood, with a Macassar ebony fingerboard that includes offset abalone dot inlays. Top-tier include a set of Seymour Duncan Nazgul and Sentient pickups that were custom-made for ESP with a special angled design and pole spacing optimized for the multi-scale design. A push-pull control on the tone knob allows for coil splitting, providing a wealth of flexible tones. Other components include a Hipshot multi-scale bridge and ESP locking tuners.
