To get the most versatility possible from the LTD M-400, ESP loaded it with a duet of Seymour Duncan humbucking pickups. You'll find the low-output, clear-voiced Jazz SH2-N humbucker in the neck position and a Custom 5 SH-14 humbucking pickup in the bridge position. The Custom 5 is essentially a PAF-style pickup with double the output. This helps the pickup blend perfectly with the Jazz humbucker in the neck. Whether you want cleaner tones or high gain, the Jazz and Custom 5 combination will get you there.
