The ESP MH-401NT QM DBSB Dark Brown Sunburst from ESP is a great guitar. The LTD Range brings you everything thats great about ESP at an affordable price so everyone can enjoy the great sound of a quality guitar.

ESP Guitars are great for any style of music but where they really excel is Hard Rock and Metal. When you pick up an ESP theres a reassuring heft to them, hot heavy as such, just solid. They can take a serious beating and are perfect for touring and regular gigging.

Great Finish

ESP guitars always look great and the finish on this one is really striking. The sunburst finish really highlights the quality of the wood grain body and the all black hardware is a great touch.

EMG Pickups

Although the EMG-85 pickup has more measurable output than the 81, its frequency response and string interface are different. The 85 uses two Alnico magnet-loaded coils with a wide aperture to maintain a beefy low end and a fatter top end. Because of a more natural tone, it works great as a rhythm and blues pickup because it has loads of output but isn't muddy. It's a perfect choice as a rhythm pickup in combination with an 81 in the bridge. The midrange has great definition and doesn't get foggy or muddy in the rhythm position. The EMG-85 works best if you like the natural distortion that comes from overdriving the front end of your amp. Under any condition, the humbucker responds accurately to your technique.

The EMG-81 pickup is a high-output pickup designed especially for the lead guitarist. The 81 is at its best for high volume overdrive and amps with a master volume. Whether you're playing power rock 'n' roll, or overdriving your amp, there's a razor sharp attack, and incredible sustain for brilliant soloing. If you're looking for exceptional qualities in a rock pickup, the EMG-81 is the one. Distortion during lead passages is consistent, sustain is long and the breakup fades smoothly. The ceramic magnet in combination with wide aperture steel poles lend a quick attack but the tone stays nice and fat at the same time. Perfect if you're the only guitarist in the band, and need to switch from rhythm to lead and still keep the band moving. Another great thing about the EMG-81 humbucker is it's quiet. If you're playing at really high gain the last thing you need is noise.
