From its offset single cutaway Mahogany body to the tip of its reverse headstock, the Phoenix 1000 in a gorgeous vintage white finish is a brilliant reissue of the classic ESP Phoenix from the mid-80‘s. While this 80‘s reissue retains its characteristic body shape, it has received a number of upgrades that make the new Phoenix-1000 a modern tone machine!
Featuring a unique Mahogany single cutaway body with a distinctive reverse headstock, the left handed Phoenix-1000 also features neck-thru construction and a 3-piece Mahogany neck with an ultra thin-U neck contour and a 22-fret Macassar Ebony fretboard, giving this latest incarnation of the Phoenix silky smooth playability.
The reissued Phoenix gets its incredible sonic versatility from a set of passive Seymour Duncan pickups. This pickup set includes a single-coil Phat Cat in the neck position, and a high output Seymour Duncan Custom in the bridge position that can be split via a push-pull control, providing an array of tonal options from vintage to modern.
Premium hardware appointments include Tonepros locking TOM bridge with a bone nut and LTD locking tuners, giving this Phoenix reissue incredible sustain and rock-solid tuning stability.
The ESP/LTD Phoenix 1000 is the latest incarnation of the legendary ESP Phoenix. The Original Phoenix made its debut back in the mid 80‘s with a much different electronics and hardware set. ESP/LTD has brought the Phoenix back with brand new appointments that give it more sonic versatility and improved tuning stability. With its unique Mahogany body, premium Seymour Duncan pickups, and top shelf hardware appointments, the new ESP/LTD Phoenix 1000 delivers the vintage looks, premium feel and versatile tone that today’s professional guitarist is looking for.
