As part of the LTD Deluxe Series designed for professional musicians, the LTD MH-1000 EverTune gives you more than you bargained for. It offers set-thru construction, meaning the neck extends deeply into the guitar’s body cavity, offering unparalleled access to the upper frets with a smooth heel joint. It has a mahogany body with a flamed maple top in a See Thru Black finish, highlighting the great look of the figured wood grain. It also features a three-piece thin U-shaped maple neck, and an ebony fingerboard with 24 extra-jumbo frets. High-class touches are included, like its multiple white binding and Grover tuners. But the MH-1000 EverTune takes things a step further with the inclusion of active EMG 85 (neck) and EMG 81 (bridge) pickup for tones that range from dark and menacing through screaming and aggressive. Finally, the EverTune constant tension bridge ensures that almost any conditions, your guitar will stay in perfect tune, and have incredibly accurate intonation at every point on the fingerboard.
The EverTune bridge is an all mechanical bridge system that keeps the guitar’s strings in-tune indefinitely by using a combination of springs, levers and some mathematics, which create constant tension on every string, all while still allowing for expressive playing including vibrato and string bending. The EverTune supports any desired tuning and is a perfect solution for song writing, recording and touring where a guitarists needs to rely on unwavering tuning stability and great intonation across the neck.
One of the most popular EMG’s, the 81 is the one that started a revolution. Utilizing powerful ceramic magnets and close aperture coils, the tone was designed with detailed intensity, incredible amounts of high end cut, and fluid sustain. Traditionally used in the bridge position of your guitar, this humbucking pickup will make your leads slice right through even the densest mix. When used in both neck and bridge positions the sound can only be described as blistering.
The 85 is one of EMGs first pickups and is the slightly more sophisticated and well rounded half of its famous brother, the 81. Featuring close aperture coils loaded with Alnico V magnets, the 85 is a powerful guitar pickup with exceptional tone and versatility. The Alnico magnets of this model provide a muscular growl and smooth lead tones enabling you to play everything from the blues to the most extreme metal. Although often used in the neck position, make no mistake, the EMG 85 sounds great as a bridge humbucker thanks to its exceptional smoothness and soul.
