LTD M-400 - Black Satin: The Ultimate Shredding Machine

The LTD 400 Series is designed with the professional performing and recording musician in mind but is available at a price that even casual players can afford. With the M-400, you get a sturdily well-built bolt-on shredding machine, complete with the classic M-style extra thin flat neck profile. Available in this great-looking Black Satin finish, its mahogany body and fast three-piece maple neck are constructed at a 25.5" scale, with 24 extra-jumbo frets on its Macassar ebony fingerboard. Like the rest of the M Series, simplicity is the key to the M-400, with a single volume knob and a selector to choose between its world-standard active EMG 85/EMG 81 pickup set.

High-Performance Design and Construction

The M-400 features a bolt-on construction that provides excellent sustain and easy access to higher frets. Its mahogany body delivers a warm and resonant tone, while the three-piece maple neck offers stability and smooth playability. The Macassar ebony fingerboard with a 350mm radius ensures a comfortable and fast playing surface, making it perfect for intricate solos and fast-paced riffs. The Black Satin finish adds a sleek and modern touch to this high-performance guitar.

Superior Neck and Fretboard

Designed for speed and comfort, the M-400's extra thin flat neck contour allows for effortless movement across the fretboard. With 24 extra-jumbo frets, players have plenty of room for expressive techniques and easy bending. The 25.5" scale length provides a balanced tension and feel, suitable for various playing styles. The locking nut ensures precise tuning stability, even during the most aggressive performances.

Powerful EMG Pickups and Simple Electronics

Equipped with an EMG 85 neck pickup and an EMG 81 bridge pickup, the M-400 delivers powerful and articulate tones that are perfect for metal and hard rock. These active pickups provide a high output with excellent clarity and definition. The simple electronics layout, featuring a single volume knob and a toggle switch, allows for easy control and quick adjustments during performances.

Reliable Hardware for Consistent Performance

The M-400 features black hardware, including Grover tuners and a Floyd Rose Special bridge, ensuring reliable performance and stable tuning. The Floyd Rose Special bridge allows for expressive dive bombs and other tremolo effects while maintaining tuning stability. The standard strap buttons provide secure attachment points for your guitar strap, making it ready for both stage and studio use.
