The M-1008 has varying scale lengths of 27" - 25.5". It features a bolt-on design with flamed maple top over a lightweight mahogany back, Seymour Duncan Nazgul and Sentient pickups, See Thru Black Satin finish.

The LTD M-1008 is a multi-scale guitar with the uncompromising playability and sonic power for which ESP is known worldwide. Multi-scale guitars make use of an angled fret arrangement to offer different scale lengths for the various strings of the guitar, allowing for optimal string tension, and has also been stated by many players to offer an ergonomic improvement for the fretting hand. The M-1008 has varying scale lengths of 27" - 25.5". It features a bolt-on design with flamed maple top over a lightweight mahogany back, a five-piece neck made of maple and exotic purple heart wood, with a Macassar ebony fingerboard that includes offset abalone dot inlays. Top-tier components on the new M-1008MS includes a set of Seymour Duncan Nazgul and Sentient pickups that were custom-made for ESP with a special angled design and pole spacing optimized for the multi-scale design. A push-pull control on the tone knob allows for coil splitting, providing a wealth of flexible tones. Other components include a Hipshot multi-scale bridge and ESP locking tuners.

An Incredibly Guitar, Best I've Owned In 30 Years


I'm a musician of 30 years in extreme metal and have played hundreds of guitars. I'm literal when stating that this is the most comfortable guitar I've ever played with, for me, the best sound of any guitar I've ever played. I'm known for having an uncanny ability with sound and have played countless six, seven and eight strings, baritone guitars etc and I can genuinely state that, between the woods used and the pickups, on top of the design, weight and feel being the most comfortable, smoothest feel I've ever felt, that I believe this is the greatest guitar I've ever owned. It's truly a work of art and top-notch craftsmanship. I put heavier strings on, since stock strings are a bit too twangy for low tuning, but here's the thing... the multiscale design literally does keep string tension between low and high strings virtually exactly the same from top to bottom. It offers a truly dynamic sound and consistent feel across all strings and down the fretboard which feels outstanding. The passive Nazgul pickups are incredible and truly offer a lot of dynamics with every sound and distortion I throw at them. There was literally one of these left in the country right now in their warehouse and managed to get it with no hassle and quickly. SamAsh always comes through. Overall, a genuinely tremendous guitar I'll be using on all future recordings.
