The LTD EC-1000 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 Les Paul style guitar with an impressive attention to detail and lots of premium features. The body material is a sturdy but lightweight Mahogany in a striking black finish with a gorgeous white binding that really makes it pop.
The ultra thin 3-piece Mahogany neck with 24 fret Macassar Ebony fretboard also features a white binding and is embossed with decorative inlays that add to the premium feel. The neck shape is a soft, thin ‘U’ that feels solid in the hand and is incredibly playable and easy to navigate. The hardware features a Tonepros Locking TOM bridge and tailpiece, a molded nut, and LTD locking tuners to preserve tuning stability and proper intonation.
The key to the EC-1000‘s outrageous tone are the electronics. Featuring hot and 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, allowing you to dial between overdriven and clean tones with ease.
The LTD EC-1000 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 EC-1000 offers reliable and consistent performance with killer looks, a luxury feel, professional grade sound, and superior playability -- all at an amazing price!
