The LTD Arrow-1000 Charcoal Burst Satin is part of the Arrow-1000 series. Guitars in the LTD 1000 Series are designed to offer the tone, feel, looks, and quality that working professional musicians need in an instrument. The Arrow-1000FR is a special member of the Arrow family, with its quilted maple top in Charcoal Sunburst Satin finish. It features neck-thru-body construction with mahogany body, 3-piece maple neck, reverse headstock with matching flamed maple finish, and Macassar ebony fingerboard with triangular white pearloid inlays and stainless steel frets. The sound of the Arrow-1000FR comes from its set of direct-mount Fishman Fluence Modern Humbucker active pickups (alnico in the neck and ceramic in the bridge), with push-pull control to select voicings and black nickel covers to match this guitar’s outstanding aesthetics. These pickups offer an outstanding variety of huge tones that range from aggressive and punchy to smooth and articulate. Components include a Floyd Rose 1000SE bridge with stainless steel screws and precise Grover tuners.

Macassar Ebony (Diospyros celebica), derives it’s name from the Makassar, the main seaport of the Indonesian island of Sulawesi. It is endemic to the island and attains heights of 20 metres. Macassar Ebony is quartersawn, this means that it is more stable and less prone to cracking than African and Indian Ebony. As a tonewood, Macassar Ebony has been described to produce instruments with a clear, loud sound. It’s providing a slightly dark and woody overtone content with a low to mid end predominance- much like Indian Rosewood!
