NGD: LTD MH-1000NT (plus my messy living room!)

I just bought this from Kevdes93 over on sevenstring.org.
Got here today.



My twin MHs, an 06 400 and an 09 1000.

Wonderful sounding guitar. I really forgot how much I like passive pickups since all my guitars had EMGs for the last 8 months or so. No complaints about the Duncans in it, and I usually don't like the JB much. It really does fit this guitar. Plus, the 59 in parallel with the tone control rolled off...PERFECT CLEAN TONE, GUYS. PERFECT CLEAN TONE.


Very nice fretboard on this one, I gotta say - I was planning on dying it black to match the finish better, but this is such a deep brown that it really doesn't need it.

The action is VERY low, and the fretwork is immaculate. That, and it is MINTY. No damage at all.

It's also considerably thinner than my 400. That makes it very, very light.

Nice. That's exactly what I'd pick up if I were to get another 1000.
Looks mint. I like the "ESP" truss rod cover too. Wish they just came that way from the factory.

Hot. I don't care for that body shape, but I have the same pickup combo in my Viper-1000 and it's great. Is that an ebony fretboard, or rosewood? I didn't know the MH1000 came in that color.

It's rosewood, believe it or not. Very nice, dark rosewood. Fits with the finish color nicely.
