The left handed LTD M-1 Custom ’87 is based on the legendary ESP M-1 model, one of the original single-humbucker super-strat style guitars back in the 80‘s. This lefty M1 Custom ‘87 features a lightweight alder body in a gorgeous candy apple red finish, with neck-thru body construction for mega tone and delicious sustain and a three-piece extra thin U-shaped maple neck that is as shreddy as can be!
The ESP/LTD lefty M-1 Custom ‘87 gets its jaw-dropping tone from the combination of its Alder superstrat body and its electronics. Featuring a single scorching hot Seymour Duncan Distortion TB-6 pickup you will enjoy all of high gain tonal mayhem you would ever need, an EMG PA-2 boost switch for extra power when you want to take your tone over the edge, and push-pull coil splitting capabilities on the single volume control to give you access to more subdued, vintage single coil tones everyone uses from time to time.
Premium hardware components such as a recess-routed Floyd Rose 1000 bridge with locking nut and LTD tuners ensure that your tuning remains stable and your intonation stays accurate no matter what kinds of tricks you perform with your tremolo!
The lefty ESP/LTD M-1 custom ‘87 in candy apple red is like a time machine, taking you back to the late ‘80‘s with its distinctive Superstrat shape and its full set of shreddy, metal-friendly appointments.
