ESP never fails to impress when it comes to the fine craftsmanship in the LTD EC-1000. Complemented by the excellent hardware, we have a very well-made guitar that had love and care put into it. Seymour Duncan pickups make an appearance on this guitar as well and they're back and they're better than ever! This is a real metal guitar, for anyone who is a metal player or even a blues player who wants to stand out from the rest of the crowd, this guitar is perfect for you.

Fine Craftsmanship
With some of the best craftsmanship in the business today, ESP designs the Eclipse body with a mahogany based body with a flamed maple top. The neck is set-thru with a thin U contour made of 3-piece mahogany topped with a Macassar ebony fretboard. The EC-1000 is a promising guitar that will deliver comfort, and absolute playability with amazing tonal options.

Excellent Hardware
The LTD locking tuners are a great feature for this guitar for those of you who want an easy-string change system, as well as tension for your strings to be balanced. The Tonepros locking TOM and tailpiece provide the perfect system for intonation and keeping your tuning in a stable setting. The nut is a molded nut which all go hand-in-hand from the head of the guitar all the way down to the tailpiece.

Seymour Duncan Pickups
Amazing tone from the Seymour Duncan pickups. The Jazz pickup in the neck position offers a fantastic clean glassy tone, it's amazing for intense leads and simple clean-playing. The bridge position pickup is the SH-5 Custom, which is an insanely awesome pickup to use for distortion tone. It's the perfect balance between using the SH-5 and the jazz pickup.

Great Metal Guitar


I have a 2016 Gibson Studio that is an awesome guitar but i hate the etune and the chrome hardware and the treble pickup just doesn't have enough growl to it. I was going to upgrade it but I do like it stock for hard rock and some metal so it made more sense to buy a guitar for metal playing. I use this guitar for practice and jamming with friends. Its got real bite to the treble pickup, love the locking machine heads, I probably should have got one with a tremolo but i rarely use them even on guitars I own already with them.
