ESP LTD M-1 Custom '87, Rainbow Crackle
This model is part of the Limited ‘87 Series which faithfully recreate ESP’s instruments from 1987, packing vintage features and looks to create a guitar that sounds and looks good.
This model has an Alder body with a 3-piece maple neck with a thin ‘U’ profile making it comfortable to play, topped with 24 extra-jumbo frets on a Macassar Ebony fretboard. It also features LTD tuners and a Floyd Rose 1000 locking tremolo bridge.
This model has a Seymour Duncan Distortion pickup at the bridge, which delivers tight and mean lows with a searing top end.
To complete the look is chrome hardware and a striking Rainbow Crackle finish.
While ESP first got started in 1975 as a small repair shop in Tokyo, it was really toward the mid ‘80s when our guitars and basses grabbed the attention of players around the world. The LTD ’87 Series are faithful recreations of this set of instruments from ESP’s 1987 catalog. The LTD M-1 Custom ’87, based on the legendary original ESP M-1 model, offers neck-thru-body construction for fast access to the highest frets. Its comfortable alder body and three-piece extra thin U-shaped maple neck are designed for speed and smooth playability. The M-1 Custom ’87 features a Floyd Rose 1000 bridge without a recess route and a single Seymour Duncan Distortion TB-6 pickup with a push-pull control for coil splitting, and an EMG PA-2 boost switch for when you need that extra push of raw power.
