The ESP LTD SN-1000W Maple Electric Guitar in Pearl White is part of a new line from ESP that delivers the features of the "Snapper" - a model that is normally only available in Japan - to UK guitarists. As part of the LTD Deluxe 1000 series, the SN-1000W is a striking model with an eye-catching finish, captivating tones, and a delightfully fun playability. Whether you're simply noodling at home, or wowing an audience of thousands, this the guitar you want in your hands as you do so.
Deep double-cutaway body
The SN-1000W is shaped to a recognisable deep double-cutaway body profile, which guarantees easy access to the upper frets, making the entire neck yours to master. The depth is kept nice and slim, with shapely curves that allows the body to nestle closely against yours during performances. Alder has been employed as the body tonewood of choice, offering a balanced timbre across the frequency range. Low-end tones purr subtlety, mids are delivered generously, and highs sing out with clarity. As noted, the body is finished in an eye-catching pearl white finish, with matching pickguard to complete the attention-grabbing visual aesthetic.
Slender maple neck
The SN-1000W is equipped with a maple neck, which is fitted to the body using a sturdy bolt-on construction. The neck is shaped to the thin U profile, which gives it a reassuring feel in the hand without feeling cumbersome as you navigate your way along at speed. The generous 25.5-inch scale length gives the strings plenty of room to resonate and ring out sweetly. Married to the neck is a bright-sounding maple fingerboard, which is home to 22 XJ-frets with dot position inlays. The 350mm radius means that string bends can be performed smoothly, making it very comfortable to roll your fingers around when performing elaborate and advanced technique.
Seymour Duncan Pickups
ESP have installed a trio of pickups in the SN-1000W. In the neck and middle positions are Seymour Duncan SSL-3 single-coil pickups, which offer a huge output with heavy emphasis on mid-range power. The humbucker-like cut ensures that your chords sing out articulately, and solos truly wail. Both SSL-3 pickups are wax potted to reduce squeal, and simply allow the beautiful timbre of your guitar to shine.
In the bridge position is a Seymour Duncan TB-14 Custom 5 Trembucker, offering a scooped midrange, with balanced bass and treble. The fat yet tight output delivered by the humbucker guarantees that galloping palm-muting, clean chops, searing solos - and all in-between -, are all easily achieved. The pickup arrangement gives you the ability to find the perfect tone for any genre of music, making this beauty highly versatile. Control comes in the form of a master volume control, a master tone control, and a five-way pickup selector switch.
The SN-1000W is equipped with LTD locking tuning machines, which uphold tuning integrity firmly throughout the most energetic of performances. Fitted to the body is a Wilkinson VSVG tremolo system, which supports stable tuning and intonation, whilst providing accurate vibrato control over each and every string.
The ESP LTD SN-1000W Maple Electric Guitar in Pearl White is a divine model that deserves to be adored. Take to the studio or stage with pride and the SN-1000W in your hands.
