The ESP LTD MH-400NT was built for high-gain tones and high-speed performance. Its resonant mahogany body boasts comfortable contours that complement the fast-playing feel of its Thin U maple neck and 24-fret pau ferro fingerboard. A duo of direct-mount active EMG humbuckers yields the perfect blend of punch and sizzle for high-impact rhythms and leads. Neck-thru and string-thru-body construction combine to elicit near-endless sustain. The LTD MH-400NT boasts understated offset block fingerboard inlays and an eye-catching gloss finish.
Built for performance
Everything about the LTD MH-400NT is engineered to offer the fastest and most comfortable playing experience, with no extraneous additions to slow you down. Its mahogany body offers a warm and sustaining tone that is a standard for hard rock guitars. Its deep forearm, back, and cutaway contours are expertly carved. And ESP even outfitted the LTD MH-400NT with a set of stable Grover tuners.
Neck built for speed
The ESP LTD MH-400NT features neck-thru construction for enhanced sustain, along with a neck carve that’s guaranteed to elicit your fastest and most intense fretwork. The neck boasts a specially designed heel for easy access to all 24 frets and a Pau Ferro fretboard with binding and inlay work that is at once understated and aggressive.
Tailor-made for high-gain
When ESP decided to give the LTD MH-400NT this particular set of EMG active humbuckers, they had nothing but pure metal on their minds. The EMG 81 at the LTD MH-400NT’s bridge is largely responsible for the majority of metal riffs you can think of, providing the blazing hot and knife-edged tone you need to cut through the mix, plus the driving low end you need for maximum impact. The liquid smooth sound of an EMG 85 at the neck completes the picture, giving you the added liquid sustain you need to pull off epic solos.
