ESP launches new LTD Baritone 6-Strings, 7-Strings, and 8-Strings at NAMM 2015


The increasing popularity of baritone, 7-string and 8-string guitars has prompted ESP to launch half a dozen new models in the LTD series. The 6-string MH-401BFM baritone features a neck-thru-body construction, a flamed maple atop a mahogany body and EMG 81/85 pickups while the V-401B offers set-thru construction and dual EMG 81 pickups.

About Author

MNJ has been writing articles, reviews and blogs for the DV online magazine for the last five years or so. Although he has been playing for longer than he cares to remember and is now officially an 'oldie', he is still mad for all things guitar related and when not busy in his studio he's learning new songs, practising bluegrass guitar, painting his house and taking his dogs out. If banished to a desert island and forced to take only one guitar he'd take a Les Paul. Actually, make that several Les Pauls, a Strat, a Tele, an ES-335, a vintage Martin and some boutique amps. Battery powered obviously.
