ESP LTD EC-1000 Electric Guitar – See Thru Purple Sunburst

Solidbody Electric Guitar with Mahogany Body, Maple Top, Mahogany Neck, Ebony Fingerboard, and 2 Humbucking Pickups – See Thru Purple Sunburst

An LTD with Looks, Tone, and Feel

The ESP LTD EC-1000 is primed for performance. Its mahogany single-cut body and set-through mahogany neck unleash truckloads of resonance and sustain upon your amp of choice, and its eye-grabbing quilted maple top is sure to garner jealous stares. From modern metal to classic rock, this solidbody electric guitar has you covered for a wide range of musical styles. Its feisty tone is full of power, served up by EMG 60TW-R and 81 humbuckers (with a push-pull control for split-coil tones too). The EC-1000 features a TonePros locking Tune-o-matic bridge/tailpiece and locking LTD tuners to give you precision intonation and stability. Factor in a modern-radius ebony fingerboard with 24 extra-jumbo frets, and the ESP LTD EC-1000 has all your bases covered for high-gain chuggas to creamy classic solos.

Single-cut body style blends classic looks with modern performance

Nothing screams hard rock like ESP’s LTD Eclipse body style. The extra mass of this single-cutaway design gives the LTD EC-1000 truly epic sustain, whereas its slightly arched top provides comfortable hand positioning no matter what your playing style. Add to that a super-sharp cutaway for easy access to all 24 frets, and you’re equipped for all manner of rock, metal, and shred tones.

Powerful and aggressive tones from EMG humbuckers

The combination of EMG pickups in the ESP LTD EC-1000 gives you the perfect balance of tone shaping and sheer destructive power. The EMG 60TW-R neck pickup boasts the grumbling low-end sound you crave, with a push-pull control for easy coil-splitting and adding some bite to your tone. The EMG 81 bridge pickup sharpens things up with a snarlingly aggressive attack that effortlessly cuts through just about any mix. Put the two together, and you have an ultra-powerful, intimidating sonic duo that makes this axe sound just great as it looks. Guitarists agree, this pickup combination is primed for modern rock and metal.

TonePros bridge and LTD locking tuners

Players who are choosy about tuning, action, and intonation will delight in the LTD EC-1000’s Tune-o-matic-style TonePros bridge/tailpiece and locking LTD tuners. The TonePros is a common aftermarket upgrade on many single-cut guitars. Its six adjustable saddles provide precise intonation and enhanced sustain for chords and leads. At the other end of the guitar, a set of LTD locking tuners provides slip-free performance, for stage and studio tuning stability you can depend on.
