Arguably one of the most influential guitarists of all time, Ron Wood is one of ESP's longest running endorsers. Famous for coming up with some of the most legendary licks in guitar history, his effortless slide playing and being a long serving member of The Rolling Stones, Ron Wood is worthy of his place in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. The ESP LTD Ron Wood electric guitar has been designed in built as part of the collaborative relationship between the legend and ESP, and now you can own one of these beauties too.
To start off, the body is built using solid alder, giving it a rich and dense sound that is perfectly suited to Wood's thick, blues' tone. Shaped to a classic Tele'-inspired profile, the body is robust and very comfortable to play. Finished in gorgeous three tone sunburst, it is designed to stand out on stage but retains that understated vintage aesthetic.
The bolt-on maple neck provides the perfect counterpoint to the dense alder's tone, coupled with a luxurious rosewood fingerboard to provide crisp articulation across the entire tonal range. The fingerboard is an absolute dream to play, and you'll not want to put this guitar down once you pick it up. The fingerboard radius has been carefully crafted to ensure string bending feels very smooth.
The ESP LTD Ron Wood comes fitted with a Seymour Duncan SH-1 neck pickup and a Seymour Duncan STL-2 bridge pickup. This combination is perfect for delivering a classic 50s/60s sound with plenty a depth and a richly textured tone. If it's vintage-style deep blues' tone that you're after then these are the boys for the job!
The LTD fixed bridge makes it very easy to change strings, and is extremely forgiving for those who're interested in playing around with different tunings, without having to worry about making endless adjustments. It also provides an excellent anchor point for palm-muting. Control comes easily thanks to the master volume and tone pots, and 3-way pickup selector switch.
If you're looking for a smooth playing blues machine then you can't get much better than Ron Wood's signature LTD, it has all the features and appointments you'd expect to see on a considerably more expensive model but it can be yours for an absolute steal.
