ESP LTD MH400 Guitar with Tremolo

The upscale MH400 is absolutely packed with features. For starters, this is a set neck instrument with a quilted maple top and EMG humbuckers. Killer, right? Well there's more. The MH400 is built with a Floyd Rose licensed tremolo bridge and its Set-Thru neck joint gives you the look and feel of a neck-thru design, with the warmth and true wood tone of a set neck. It's glassy-smooth and extremely comfortable. Other features include that awesome quilted top, a mahogany body, a 3-piece maple neck with a 24-fret rosewood fingerboard (XJ frets), black hardware including Grover tuners, and cool, offset neck inlays. It's a lot of guitar for the money.

Grover Tuners
High-quality Grover tuning machines are well known for their precise gear ratio, tuning stability and durability. They make a great complement to the other upscale features of ESP's 400-level instruments.

Double Action Truss Rods
All ESP/LTD guitars and basses feature a 'double-action' truss rod design. Unlike a normal (single) truss rod, this one is adjustable in two different directions. This means that you'll never run into a situation where the neck has 'run out of adjustment'. Regardless of which ESP model you choose, you'll get years and years of playing enjoyment.

EMG Pickups
There truly is no comparison between active EMG's and conventional pickups. EMG's frequency response is shaped much differently. Conventional pickups typically exhibit a dry "peaky" frequency response, while EMG's have a much broader bandwidth that's better for harmonic pull-offs and chord definition. Individual notes have better presence and are dynamic. Playing styles are more pronounced and different techniques can be easily accommodated.

zZounds is an authorized dealer of ESP products.

Customer Reviews
4.5 out of 5 (82 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. This review has been selected by our experts as particularly helpful. "Worth waiting for."
Sound: Some say that EMG 81's don't sound good clean, I'm not one of them. This thing sounds great through my Marshall and my Line 6, clean or ultra gain. With proper use of volume and tone controls, all but the brightest single coil tones are attainable. Feature: The F-R licensed tremolo works smoothly and performs the most radical dive bombs with ease, always returning in tune. All adjustment wrenches are included, as well as an extra spring for the F-R if you want to stiffen it up. The pop in arm is a welcome change from screw-in's I have for others. All hardware is well made and works nicely. Quality: Fit and finish are top rate. With all my LTD's the quality is so high that I can't imagine paying the extra money for the ESP models. Seems unnecessary to me. The finish on this one is especially lovely. Though somewhat dark and subdued in natural light, camera flashes and stage lighting bring it to glorious life, giving an almost electric hue. Value: ESP's LTD models are THE best value in the guitar world, bar none! Even the entry level models are outstanding overall guitars. Manufacturer Support: Took me 7 months to get mine, a ridiculous amount of time for a standard production model. This is due to high demand and an unwillingness to rush production, which I admire. What annoyed me was the runaround I got from company sales staff. Dealers are having the same trouble, especially midwestern dealers. ESP needs to examine it's allocation policies so the east/west coast stores aren't swimming in overstock while everyone else waits forever. The Wow Factor: Oh yeah, gotta have it! I waited 7 months, so it's hot. Overall: I have yet to get rid of any ESP guitars I've bought. They work and look too damned good to ever part with.

ESP LTD MH-400 Guitar Customer Review
Sound: sounds good, especially since it has that big quilted maple cap. sustains forever though the emgs probably have a lot to do with that. the 81 in the bridge is brilliant for metallica, megadeth...any metal band's sound really can be covered and sound good. the 85 has a smoother sound and is great for noodling. the only problem with the emgs is that they lack definition slightly. the tone knob can really help you round out the sound, so u can get from a high gain crunch to more smooth tones when played clean. it covers a lot of bases tonally. Feature: all the relevant allen keys, springs etc were included. one volume,one tone knob. 3 way selector. what more can you ask for? i personally wish i had bought the nt (no trem) version of this guitar since i feel floyd roses are way too much hastle. Ease of Use: what sold me on this guitar was its playability. it just has the nicest neck and action i have ever played. pinch harmonics fly out of it. its a great metal guitar. Quality: its a really nice looking guitar. it has broken a few times due to my own stupidity but its nothing that wouldnt happen on the road. i would not gig without a backup. period. this guitar should last me for a gd few years simply because i dont gig any more. on the road ...i dread to think how it would hold up. Value: in the uk you get ripped off big style buying guitars. i paid about 200 quid more than this guitar is worth. if you are into this style of guitar check out what schecter or any other company has to offer before buying. Manufacturer Support: whenever the guitar broke the guys at dawsons fixed it under the warranty. no problems The Wow Factor: when i saw this guitar i just had to have it, but with a little more experience under my belt, i know esp does not offer anything that cannot be got from another company for much cheaper. im sorry but thats just how it is. now i have the guitar, do i regret buying it? of course not, ive written some of my best material on this guitar so of course i love it. i just wish i didnt pay so much for it is all. Overall: if i was to lose this guitar i probably would get the nt model, as i said, i hate floyds. failing that i would get a schecter revenger or c1. i am much more open minded these days as to what other companies can offer. but yeh, if i was given the insurance money to get a guitar id probably go with the nt model of the mh 400. simply because i have so many fond memories of it.
