The LTD EC-1000 in a see-thru black cherry finish offers the working musician a professional quality deluxe design with plenty of aesthetically pleasing details and a bold tone to match. The EC-1000 features ESP/LTD’s take on the classic single cutaway double-humbucker style guitar with an impressive attention to detail. The body material is a sturdy but lightweight Mahogany with a Quilted Maple top in a see thru black cherry finish with a gorgeous decorative full body/neck/headstock binding that really makes the finish pop.
The ultra thin 3-piece Mahogany neck with a 24 fret Pau Ferro fingerboard also features a decorative binding and is embossed with abalone inlays. The neck shape is a soft, thin ‘U’ feels solid in the hand but is still incredibly playable and easy to navigate. The hardware features a Tonepros Locking TOM bridge and tailpiece, a molded nut, and LTD locking tuners to keep intonation and tuning under control.
The key to the EC-1000's aggressive tone is its high output electronics. Featuring active EMG 60 and EMG 81 pickups, the EC-1000 delivers a tone that is aggressive and full of punch. Wired with two volume knobs, a single tone and a toggle switch pickup selector, the LTD EC-1000 allows you to control your tone and volume while switching between and blending pickup voicings, and changing between overdriven and clean tones with ease.
The LTD EC-1000 in See Thru Black Cherry finish delivers the tone, feel and quality that professional musicians need at a price that the average working musician can still afford. The attention to detail that LTD has lavished on EC-1000 is amazing! The ESP/LTD EC-1000 STBCH offers reliable and consistent performance with killer looks, a luxury feel, professional grade sound, and superior playability -- all at an amazing price!
