Updated for 2018 with a menacing new Black Satin finish, the LTD MK-600 was created from a design by Mille Petrozza of the influential German thrash metal band Kreator. Its body shape is a modified version of the ESP Arrow that we call a “Double Arrow”, resulting in a streamlined, beveled look that’s perfect for all heavy music styles. The MK-600 features a neck-thru-body design at 24.75” scale, and a mahogany body with three-piece maple neck and 24-fret pau ferro fingerboard. It includes a Floyd Rose 1000 bridge, Grover tuners, and the innovative Fishman Fluence® Modern Humbucker active pickups which include a voice selection mini switch (down for “Modern Active” tone, or up for “Modern Passive Attack”). This model utilizes a standard 9V battery.
FISHMAN FLUENCE MODERN
Modern Humbucker Alnico has all the musicality, power and explosiveness of alnico. Full chords and fluid solos, plus a voice you’ve never heard in a humbucker. Great in both positions, or commonly paired with a ceramic bridge pickup.
Modern Humbucker Ceramic is a cutting ceramic attack. Brutal active aggression and passive punch in the same guitar. Great in both positions, or commonly paired with alnico neck.
Each Fishman Fluence pickup has two distinct and useful sounds on-board. These sounds start with the revolutionary Fluence Core, the heart of Fluence tone. From this Fluence Core we then create the classic timbres and tone — colors you expect from great guitar pickups — as well as some you’ve never expected.
