The ESP LTD SN-1000W Rosewood Electric Guitar in Charcoal Metallic is part of ESP's new LTD Deluxe 1000 series. The "Snapper" as this model is known, is usually only found in Japan. However, ESP have kindly extended its availability to the rest of us, and we can all revel in playing this exceptional model. As you'd expect from the team at ESP, the SN-1000W is solidly built, and plays like a dream. The pickups enable the tonewoods to purr like a kitten, or roar like a lion - it's up to you. Whether you're simply playing along to your favourite bands at home, or taking to the stage in front of an adoring crowd, the Snapper is the guitar you want to be seen and heard with.
Deep double-cutaway body
With comfortability at the fore, the SN-1000W is shaped to a recognisable deep double-cutaway body profile, with a sloping upper bout to create the perfect resting position for your picking arm. ESP have created gently rolled edges, which allows the body of the guitar to fit snugly against yours during performances. The depth of the guitar is slim to remove any obstacles from restricting the freedom of your movement. To create a tonally balanced model, alder has been employed as the body tonewood. The low-end energy produced by the alder presents itself with subtlety, the mids jump forth to offer an impressive warmth with plenty of kick, whilst the highs sing brightly. The body is finished in a sophisticated charcoal metallic finish, with a white pickguard to create a striking visual contrast.
Supple maple neck
Fitted to the body via a steady bolt-on joint, is a supple maple neck. The neck has been shaped to a thin U neck contour, which makes it a joy to hold in the hand, offering a substantial feel without becoming cumbersome. The generous 25.5-inch scale length gives the strings plenty of room to resonate and ring out sweetly. The combination of length and thin neck contour makes this a wonderful playing area to roam around in. Paired with the neck is a responsive rosewood fingerboard, which is home to 22 XJ-frets with dot position inlays. ESP have shaped the fingerboard with a 350mm radius, which supports smooth string bends, and encourage you to be adventurous in your playing.
Seymour Duncan Pickups
The SN-1000W is equipped with a trio of Seymour Duncan pickups - a single-coil in each of the neck and middle positions, and a humbucker in the bridge. Control comes in the form of a master volume control, a master tone control, and a five-way pickup selector switch. The pickup arrangement gives you the ability to find the perfect tone for any genre of music, making this beauty highly versatile.
The neck and middle position pickups are SSL-3 single-coils, which are powered by Alnico 5 magnets and designed to accentuate the mid-range energy of the guitar. By wax-potting the pickups, you can rest assured that when you crank up this pair, you will be treated to a ferocious power without the unwanted noise and squeal. So whether you're laying down lush, textured finger-picked notes, and blowing minds with searing solos, you'll produce nothing by smooth tones.
In the bridge position is a Seymour Duncan TB-14 Custom 5 Trembucker, which is designed to produce a scooped-out mid-range with emphasis on 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 just a fingertip adjustment away.
Whether you're a part-time legend, or a full-time pro, SN-1000W is the perfect performance partner for getting you through each gig in effortless style, but most importantly, it is as stable and reliable as they come. The headstock is home to LTD locking tuning machines that secure each string firmly, upholding tuning integrity dutifully. The body is home to a Wilkinson VSVG tremolo system, which creates a seamless connection between the strings and body whilst offering precise vibrato control.
The ESP LTD SN-1000W Maple Electric Guitar in Pale 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.
