It came to me today. No more than 3 days for a delivery from the States to Sweden! Where are all those horror stories about endless weeks or even months of delivery? Damn... 3 days... Respects to USPS and Swedish Posten.

ESP LTD Deluxe Mh-1000 Hardtail
# Set-Thru
# 25.5” Scale
# Mahogany Body, Quilted Maple Top
# Maple Neck, Rosewood Fingerboard
# 42mm Earvana Compensated Nut
# Thin U Neck Contour, 24 XJ Frets
# Black Nickel Hardware
# ESP Locking Tuners, Tonepros Locking Bridge
# Seymour Duncan JB (B) /59 (N) p.u.


This one came as a second-hand. The previous owner is a friendly guy. Looking at the guitar it was very easy for me to notice that he knows how to handle his equipment well. The action was spot on, the nut was replaced before and I love the feels of it. The pickup height were perfectly setup. No ding or flaw in the finish, just tiny tiny tiny scratches. I was lucky!

I was amazed at the neck. Fits my hand perfectly (Very similar to Ibanez Wizard II neck but somehow much more comfortable!). Sitting there tuning the guitar was like torture... I wanted some sounds out of those speakers!
Like any other newbie I started with some lame powerchord. The first reaction was "F0ck dude?! Where the buzzes?". Mind you... all of my other guitars have buzzing problems and i am too much of a lazyass to fix them.

And here some pix... Nevermind all those dusts... I cleaned them afterward.

Damn... I didnt mean to make this into a review... Oh well...

And by the way, a wuestion to you guys. This guitar has Sperzel lcoking heads. Do I need to loosen anything for tuning or it just for when releasing the strings? Never had those before.

I wish they still made them in this colour. The see through green and brown aren't exactly what I'm looking for.

Nice Hellraiser!


Dude. It's not even a Schecter I believe this one is a little smaller than a Hellraiser.

Sweet, where did you buy it from?

I looked up Ebay for a LTD-400 and found this beautiful looking guitar. Made a deal with the seller to end the auction earlier with reduced price Best frigging deal I've made

I was thinking about that, too. Which type of oil should I use to rosewood? Lemon?

I use Old English lemon oil and it works pretty good for my Hellraiser.. But my fretboard is a bit darker so I don't know.

I think I'm the only person to actually get the humour in this...

Nice guitar though, they are horrendously overpriced in the UK.
Funny words.

Better than hooked on crack, I suppose. I'd rather know my kids are safe at home beating their meat than out in the world robbing old women for their crack fix.

What a huge coincidence. I have a butthole also.
