Combining top-notch tonewoods, detailed craftsmanship, and impressive features, the LTD M-1000MS means business. This guitar begins life as a block of mahogany with a figured maple cap. After the body is fully carved and contoured, a 5-piece maple/purpleheart neck is added. The neck's thin profile and multi-scale fretboard are ideal for heavy riffing and high-octane soloing. The searing tone is provided by a set of Seymour Duncan passive humbuckers — a Sentient in the neck and a Nazgul in the bridge. Extra sonic options are provided by a coil-splitting harness. If you're the type of player who regularly performs high-gain heroics, the LTD M-1000MS is the guitar you're after.
