The ESP LTD EC-401VB Electric Guitar offers unrivalled style and performance. Loaded with two EMG pickups, the ESP certainly packs a punch, while the dazzling gold trim and hardware contrast against the sleek vintage black finish.
Crafted from solid mahogany, the ESP EC-401 provides rich, full tones with a perfect balance of low and high-end frequencies. Being a high-quality tonewood, mahogany is a strong, durable material that is likely to sound better as it matures. The finish of the EC-401VB is an eye-catching blend of black and gold that is sure to attract the attention of all who stand before it.
The ESP EC-401 includes a Tune-o-matic bridge with stopbar tailpiece, which allows for better string and intonation adjustment.
The neck of the EC-401 is built from mahogany and carved to the rounded Thin U specification that offers enhanced playability and comfort. A rosewood fingerboard with 24 XJ frets allow for fluid progressions and transitions. The ESP headstock also retains the stylish black and gold scheme, and includes gold-plated Grover Tuners that offer improved tuning precision in a 3-a-side formation.
The ESP EC-401 is fitted with two EMG pickups that provide excellent tonal variety, with plenty of gain. An EMG 81 in the bridge position offers intense outputs, while the EMG 60 in the neck position offers enhanced clarity with a distinctive crunch. Both pickups can be controlled by the tone and volume knobs, and toggled with the 3-way selector.
