Powerful EMG toneOnboard the LTD V-300 you’ll find a pair of EMG’s most popular active humbucking pickups. The 81 in the bridge and neck are a go-to pickup for hard rock styles because of their high-output voice. These humbuckers deliver a huge but tight low end and highs that cut without ever becoming too piercing. This EQ curve makes them work wonderfully for full-bodied clean tones as well. And even though they’ll easily push your amplifier into high gain, EMG’s active design keeps the pickups very quiet without a lot of interference.
Fast playabilityESP LTD guitars are well known for their great playability. The LTD V-300 solidbody electric guitar achieves this with the help of its Thin U profile neck. This neck carve is ideal for technical playing styles and when you need to move quickly up and down the fretboard. The 24-fret construction gives you access to two full octaves on each string. And the extra-jumbo frets ensure you’ll be able to fret, bend, and manipulate the strings without fighting the guitar’s fretboard.
Complementary wood choiceThe LTD V-300’s large mahogany body brings a focus to the midrange frequencies that fill out the guitar’s sound. Mahogany is wonderful with EMG 81s because it keeps the powerful lows and highs of the pickups from overpowering your guitar tone. And the neck’s rosewood fretboard adds warmth and definition to your high-gain tones. This guitar achieves a sound that is full in all of the frequencies while still providing plenty of cutting power to get through the mix.
