This guitar has a baswood body, a maple neck and a rosewood fretboard. it feels amazing and sounds great. This one of the few guitars that managed to amaze me. I've been to lots of guitarstores where i held expensive guitars of various brands, but I didn't like them as much as my Ltd ec-10. The mh-50 is one of the few guitars that I prefer over my ec-10. The pickups sound warm but they still have a lot of clarity.
