Ideal rock pickups
Aggressive, wide-reaching sound. The M-1000HT Deluxe's set of Seymour Duncan pickups provides you with an amazingly powerful electronic setup to unleash raw energy into every note you play.
Embrace punchy, bright tones courtesy of the Jazz model neck pickup. This humbucker is designed to give you sharp, clear sound and eliminate any kind of noise interference. Ideal for hard rock styles, it allows you to apply as much distortion to your playing as you like without effecting sound clarity. The Pearly Gates model bridge pickup gives you sizzling, growling attack and lets you create a high-octane rock sound that has supreme depth. The perfect pickup combination to let you rock.
Hit every note with ease. A thru-neck construction allows you to solo and riff comfortably at any position along the fretboard. With this type of construction, the neck runs continuously through the body of the guitar. The need for bulky, bolt-on heels where the neck joins the body is eliminated, affording you easy access to the very highest frets. This construction is a hallmark of the most premium guitars on the market, and is indicative of the M-1000HT's extremely high quality. Never be restrained again by notes that are diffcult to hit.
Distinguished, captivating appearance
Superbly striking. A guitar that looks as wonderful as it sounds. The ESP M-1000HT has a stunning appearance to ensure you'll always stand out onstage. A gorgeous Hawaiian koa top gives the model an exotic, entirely unique aesthetic. The wood's distinctive, one-of-a-kind pattern is extremely elegant. A natural gloss finish adds a radiant, shimmering quality to this beautiful instrument. A supremely pretty guitar with electrifying, unbeatable power beneath the facade.
Magnificent neck and fretboard combination
Experience supreme playability and incisive sharpness. Your hand will be able to fly at rapid speed up and down the extremely smooth, extra-thin flat maple neck. The super-slim profile sits comfortably in your fret-hand, meaning speedy playing is easy. Perfect for exhilarating solos.
Your comfort is enhanced by a sleek ebony fingerboard, helping to reduce finger soreness when playing for long periods. The ebony tonewood also has a beautifully bright quality, especially in the mid-range. Your music will sound crisp and sharp, and never fail to cut through a mix with fantastic definition. Make sure every invigorating solo or riff you play is heard with industry-leading clarity.
Lightweight and slim
Play on long into the night. No guitarist wants to be held back by an instrument that hangs heavily and rigidly around their neck. The ESP M-1000HT Deluxe provides the antidote to this problem. Its ultra-thin profile and lightweight body style ensures that this is a guitar you'll never want to put down. You'll be able to manouevre your guitar around a stage with ease, and never worry about physical strain. A guitar that fits you perfectly.
Hard rock heritage
ESP Guitars are legends of the rock music world. Established in Tokyo, Japan in 1975, ESP (Electric Sound Products) initially manufactured high-quality replacement parts for guitars already on the market. These replacements became extremely popular with rock guitarists, as many users noticed that the new parts, when added to their existing guitars, afforded their instruments extra power and aggression.
Noticing their new-found popularity, ESP capitalised and decided to use their expertise to begin crafting guitars of their own. Early models were used in the music of KISS and The Rolling Stones. As years passed, ESP's guitars became increasingly popular within metal and hard rock genres. Metallica, Megadeath, Slayer, Judas Priest, and Guns N' Roses have all used the immense sound of ESPs in their music. Quality, hard rock sound favoured by the very best in the business.
