The LTD H-1007’s body is crafted from mahogany and features a flamed maple top, enhancing the guitar's natural brightness and creating a unique aesthetic. The mahogany tonewood delivers a soft tone, with plenty of grind and bite to keep it well-balanced and create plenty of depth. The guitar’s appealing high end and full, tight low end ensures the overall tonality remains thick and firm, offering plenty of dynamics to accommodate a variety of musical styles.
This guitar is equipped with a 3pc maple neck and ebony fingerboard, delivering warm, bright tones with plenty of depth and dynamics. The maple offers roundness to the tone, providing bright characteristics and an excellent amount of sustain. Its thin U-shaped profile is perfect for speed demons, allowing players to easily reach across the entire fingerboard without losing any comfort. The addition of an ebony fingerboard helps to tighten up the neck’s tone, giving it a defined feel, excellent clarity, and a fast attack. The maple and ebony combination creates a sparkling, sizzling high end, a muscular controlled bass response, and a snappy midrange with extra presence in the lower mids.
This ESP is equipped with a pair of Seymour Duncan pickups, offering the perfect blend of articulation and aggression suitable for versatile musicians. The Pegasus humbucker is set at the bridge to deliver a warm, balanced tone, with an excellent response and accurate pick attack to cut through live mixes. Built using alnico V magnets and custom wiring specs, the Pegasus pickup features a moderate output and offers a harmonically rich performance with a prominent midrange and a focused low-end. A Sentient humbucker is placed at the bridge to provide a beautifully balanced and versatile tone, offering pristine cleans and fluid leads to suit a range of playing styles. Its articulate vintage output provides players with an incredibly dynamic response and wide harmonic range, making it ideal for low tunings.
Also equipped with a push/pull pickup coil tap, the ESP H-1007 Guitar offers a huge amount of tonal options to choose from, ensuring players can deliver the perfect sound for most situations. This function allows players to switch the pickup settings from a standard humbucking mode to a single coil, making it an extremely versatile guitar ideal for live situations when an array of tones are required.
The Hipshot bridge provides players with an incredible intonation, allowing each string to vibrate freely while remaining secure. Its hand polished construction ensures players receive a smooth, comfortable feel while playing, and the stainless-steel saddles feature a crisp string relief edge to help eliminate any dull tones. The string-through-body construction optimises the transfer of vibrations from the strings to the body, improving the ESP’s overall sustain and resonance.
Back in 2008, ESP introduced their own locking tuners on many new and existing LTD Signature & Deluxe series instruments. Ease of use and elegant design were their key goals in designing these keys. ESP tuning keys eliminate the need for wraps on the tuner shaft to improve tuning stability, reduce string slippage, and simplify the restringing process.
