The ESP LTD EC-401QM's crushing tone comes courtesy of an 81/60 pair of genre-defining EMG active pickups - found on heavy music's most famous models. Paired with a warm, yet snappy pau ferro fretboard, you've got full-range ferocity, even through searing distortion.
The EC-401QM's quilted maple top is a real head-turner, with a stunning see-thru black satin finish. Classy black chrome hardware completes the look, including high-spec Grover machine heads to keep your riffs locked in tune all night. No guitar at this price should look and sound this good.
