Hatsubai's review"Not a bad guitar"

LTD MH-400
The MH400 is part of the MH series of LTD models that ESP makes. The 400ish series is an upgraded version of the 50 series, but the 400 is still priced at the budget model market. The guitar features a mahogany body with a quilted maple top (I think it's a veneer, but I'm not entirely sure), set maple neck with a rosewood fretboard, 24 extra jumbo frets, two EMG humbuckers, a licensed floyd rose bridge, small upper block inlays with a big inlay on the 12th fret, binding, one volume, one tone and a three way switch.


LTD did a pretty good job with this, considering the price. The fret ends aren't totally finished, and the frets aren't quite as level as the regular series, or even the 1000 series can be. However, it's still a very well put together guitar. The set neck also eliminates the tolerance issue that some of the lower end bolt-ons suffer from. I like that they're not using basswood like the 50 series, too. That's a big plus, especially since mahogany with a maple neck is one of my favorite combinations of wood. Binding isn't bad, but it seems somewhat cheap. However, it's to be expected on this kind of guitar.


The sound is actually really good considering that these come with real EMGs. That's a huge plus, in my opinion. There were a few I played that sounded dull no matter what, but most sounded pretty good for the most part. The 81 in the bridge has an awesome bite, and works great for heavy metal. The 85 gives that super fat and powerful lead sound in the neck, so you can do some sick legato runs with ease. It's a bit "stuck" in the heavy metal realm, in my opinion. However, it's not an issue if you're playing a heavier style. I doubt most people who are going to be playing blues or country would look at this guitar to begin with.


Given the price and features of this guitar, it's actually pretty surprising. The fretwork isn't up to the Standards, but that's to be expected on a budget model. The EMGs, mahogany body, binding and whatnot all work to help make this guitar a really good buy for someone who wants a solid guitar without spending a ton of coin. The main thing I'd do would be to give it a nice fret level and replace the licensed floyd with an OFR.

I'm not harping ..

m mine arrived with the selector that merd a little: when I passed neck pickup sound does not come out ... do not worry, just had to make it go faster for "dgripper" .. nothing to go IECH dealer ...


the first grip I have on this not shinning its dry (without amp) ..
the varnish on the handle just requires time to adapt, but there is nothing Gnant No, it even causes long some comfort ..

Me, I find that the weight is in harmony with the bill for this guitar, which presents an appearance, finish, which are warm.

I find this wonderful guitar, c is exactly what I appreciates.


To shred, death, grind, the bluesy, groove ... ect

I do not find her limit, even if the pickup a little betrayed his predestination ..
just to have a big sound, c is excellent.j uses extreme saturation, I try to have a very nasty and sharp grain time.The the microphone 81 is not the for the "jonathan cerrada" ...

I am however of the neck pickup, that we correct me if I say wrong, but I find it to an alarming imprcision in is clear that c is the job of the pickup, but I have considerably reduce my gain and change my equalizer at the expense of acute to exploit the 85..dommage

... By against clear sound it is quite impressive, warm and round, lens on the most Notes makes a sound very pleasant, even if it is far from micro to be the best for this guitar.


J had a serious dilemma with this guitar compares the LAG ROYAL BLUE SHADOW ARKANE ...

Lag was no longer available, but I have tried a low-end arkane: the handle is terrible!

But if I have to opt LTD, after mature reflection, it is primarily for the price-quality ratio that is UNBEATABLE I agree addition of a user under which the rightly regarded as a high-end , well that is not true.

after a few months passs with this guitar, I always look longingly when it is placed on its support, as if I could still see in the window ..

make a smart purchase, you want the quality of a skyscraper that will hold water for a while? you do not want to invest in a product that you do not are on?

so try this guitar!
EDIT December 28: I come from grants rcuprer B and c is the slap, c is absolutely what I esprai.
This guitar is excellent and beautiful! J still have the same enthusiasm that the first day.
I ve remont notes for mettres max because she deserves.
THE reference number quality price!

Little sister of the famous skyline, this skyscraper teaser with his set of EMG 81/85 in assets, of course.

Painted a set neck for maximum comfort and warmth.

This is the Korean model of 2010, with a vibrato ESP, mechanics Groover.


Excellent compromise between the weight of the beast and its classic form stratabound, the guitar is just "properly".

Access to the treble is very correct, say "perfect" would be wrong, since this criterion is rather subjective, however, certain guitars could be tricked out of such quality ..

The bill is good, very good ... A true price / quality ratio!


The metal is honored with the couple on board EMG .. Needless to procrastinate for hours to admit that this shovel you will ravage the bun on an air of Death greasy riff or a surgical ..

A good amp, good saturation, and a good zikos, that is all the application LTD MH_400


I do not put the maximum even if the heart is ..

This guitar is really an essential references for rock, metal ..

A sleek look and efficient, a quality / price excellent, yes, if I go back to zik one day I will ever be the conscious choice of the time ...

As you can see she is well endowed plutt:
Neck-body mahogany table stocky, EMG 81, Grover mca, 24 frets, Licensed Floyd (I will return) is to just 750 (the price without the passage in the luthier + EMG 89) it was a nice box of course ...
With the change of the handle 81 in a EMG89, I got to 900! For photos that show some true color rendering (not like the photo site that has nothing to do ESP) ==>% 2Cjai-received- my-mh-ltd% 2C63843% 2C0.html


Viewpoint playing comfort, it is enjoyable to play trs. The neck is super low as prs ESP M-II or KH-602 (for those who test. It is not as flat, thin and wide as a handle Jackson or Ibanez but it's even handle highway was not a log home in Gibson's hands ...
The violin is good trs. When empty, it sounds good ... trs We feel we have not a piece of wood crate is of mahogany! Rpart weight well and reasonable. CHAC is terrible to acute (neck through). The guitars are often shaped stratode trs comfortable and scratches that do not droge RULES! Concerning the Floyd, it takes a lot of agreement. I revrifie every day since I have and there is a quarter tone that is lost in nature to a string or two but right now he trs (too: P) I like hot n ' it will not pull any punches with Floyd, I think it's normal ...


His point of view, I play in a Randall RG75SC (thus the transistor) with a GT2 Global Warming for the whole. When I plugged the very first time, I t bluff. The output level is standard! The EMG 81 is great on both channels of my disto. It should trs well for the big rock and metal (all styles). As against a good old rock I change position immediately handle. I did put a EMG89 (so splitable) in the neck position for maximum versatility. L is still beautiful ... This microphone is almost everything! The good old rock to blues (I would not even Jazz especially with Randall). With the simulation of my Fender GT2 and EMG SA, you get a sound close to a trs strato while with the simulation and EMG 85 Marshall was a good well cool rock vintage trs ! Regarding the rumor of active pickups (lack of heat blabla) is false. I admit that sounds a slightly less hot (especially the 81 but it is not what I asked) that an old but well rounded liability suits me perfectly because I prfre the precision in the sound. Any fawn, the EMG 89 is doing well and trs is no shortage of heat (ca dpend each ca me for me).
So if you leave the stick in 81 is not great so I put 8 and 9.5 with the 89 is not as round as I thought ... (Even if I ca not drang)


Résumé for this guitar is versatile and trs not type at all! Okay it's a LTD, but even when we approach a lot of ESP! (I test of ESP so I do not do it)
The series The series as 400 Deluxe (which has a finish tape over the eye and an original Floyd for more than 200) are really INTERESTED in this price range. I also test the DKMG in Jackson which is more or less competition from the scratch (the DKMG is a little less CHRE) ca Well I have nothing to DSOL fans of Jackson ... Ditto for the Ibanez RG 900, violin making, especially finish and sound are well below ...
For 900, I have a fantastic guitar super versatile type and not with a great look (that's me you see) ...
For the moment I have not seen a lot of default and yet I try to be a maximum goal!
Well I reu 5 days ago so it may be a little tt but if I change my mind on certain points j'diterai this test ... I would not put 10 to 81 because the handle is not sensational but the report is so exceptional qualitprix with 89 MRIT she good! (Apart from Shecter or other of the LTD SERIES 400 deluxe I do not see that can compete on the new home market) ...
