      ESP LTD EC-1000 Evertune Electric Guitar (109292029)
Availability:  


An upgraded LTD that's always in tune, no batteries required.

The ESP LTD EC-1000 EverTune Electric Guitar is built to crunch with its mahogany body, set mahogany 24-3/4"-scale neck, and rosewood fretboard. Abalone flags plus the model name at the 12th fret give it distinction. The EverTune mechanical bridge is an amazing innovation the keeps tuning rock-solid for weeks on end. This model also features a maple top and a pair of active EMG-81/60 pickups.

EverTune Bridge
With certain key exceptions, electric guitar technology has not changed drastically in the last 50-plus years. However, the EverTune Bridge represents a whole new way of approaching the art and science of keeping guitars in tune, at all times, under all conditions.

EverTune is an all-mechanical system, with springs in the guitar’s body that provide constant tension to the strings. The result: you not only maintain excellent tuning from day to day, but your guitar’s intonation is amazingly accurate at all points up and down the neck. You don’t have to change your playing style or any degree of expression while remaining in pristine pitch at all times.

With an EverTune-equipped LTD EC-1000 EVERTUNE, you can be confident that throughout a grueling gig or a long recording session, your guitar will remain in tune regardless of the temperature and other conditions. Huge string bends? No worries; the strings are under constant tension so that no matter what happens, you can always focus on playing, and not worrying about tuning.

  • This is the real thing. Better than Les Paul. THE ONLY TRUE tuning solution.

    As reviewed by Robert Feeser on 11/11/2013

    I have been playing guitar for more years than I care to admit. I currently have over 20 guitars. High end Les Pauls such as the custom are wonderful. However there are certain design... what should I call them, defects that the ESP LTD EC1000 Deluxes corrects? The extreme 17 degree headstock angle creating an end grain headstock breaking hazard when dropped. It also wreaks havoc on the G string for example binding the string where it leaves the back of the nut, instead of having a straight line like the Telecasters and Stradivarius violins have. The extra thick heavy body exacerbates the problems even more. In addition to the extra weight it also creates a challenge in trying to cut out the neck out of one piece of wood. The heart of the wood has a higher degree of moisture therefore when cut open, the top of the neck is more cured than the back: so it shrinks. Therefore the necks bow back with the shrinkage. It is further compounded with the problem of the Les Paul only has a one way nut. The Epiphone?s have been using a scarf joint under the 2nd fret to save wood but the moisture laden glue joint when it finally dries as a finished guitar causes a dip in the fret board itself under the 2nd fret. That is what causes the 2nd fret buzz problems. Then if you want to do a fret leveling you can't unless you buy or have it put into a very un-natural jig because you can't use the truss rod to adjust to a perfectly level surface because the truss rod only goes one way. Ok enough about Les Paul. The EC-1000 solves all of these problems. The headstock is not tilted back so much, and the body is 1.6 inches instead of 2 inches. So it is lighter, actually just the right weight, and they give you a guitar made out of solid wood instead of having hollowed out chambers in it to lighten the load. So all EC's even the 256 are made out of one piece of wood for the neck. It is still a traditional headstock bent back design though so you still have some of the G string tuning problems and that is where the Evertune bridge comes in. This is the real thing. There is no other tuning solution out there that solves all of the problems of guitars going out of tune like the Evertune. Unlike the Floyd Rose tremolo system the Evertune is not dependent on all of the strings. There are 6 independent springs so if a string breaks you don't have to walk off of the stage. Also it only takes a minute to tune it perfectly. Once you set it, it stays that way. You can do bends out the wazoo and it stays PERFECTLY IN TUNE. Using a Peterson HD tuner desktop model which measures tuning in increments that are 1,000th of a semi-tone. So if you took a C note and played a C# the difference between those notes is broken down into 1000 parts and that tuner is accurate to one of those thousand increments. What I have found with most guitars using the Peterson is that as soon as you perfectly tune the guitar, all you have to do is bend one string, and already it is going a little bit out of tune, and then a little more, and more, and within 5 minutes you have a more serious need to retune, or top it up with retune. Most people look the other way when it comes to tuning because there was no absolute answer until now, and the Evertune is it. There is something very special about a guitar that is perfectly in tune. When you strum a chord it is almost like a new element arrives. Like the sum of 6 strings is greater than 6 because a 7th element arrives that is hard to describe but is incredibly beautiful. The problem is that when a guitar is even a little out of tune, that beauty is turned into something equally as ugly. Recording studios practicing a popular technique of doubling the rhythm part with one panned hard left, and the other panned hard right often wastes hours of studio time due to an immediate out of tune comparison in each ear. They are scooping up Evertune guitars to have in the studio for just that reason. ESP is the first major guitar manufacturer with an Evertune option. So far it was a custom after the purchase fact add on. The Evertune bridge reviews by major guitar magazines, every one of them give it 5 stars. It really, really works. Even with a problem every guitar has when you squeeze a chord all the way past the top of the frets to the fret board causing the note to stretch/sharpen and be out of tune. You can take Evertune?s sweet spot range, and take it to the top of that range, and then back it off by 1/8th of a turn on your tuners, and then fine set it by the tuner in the bridge. It also perfects intonation problems due to relief in necks. (Big dip at 12th fret intonates correctly due to setting it there, but when you dip at either end of the fret board, for example the 3rd fret or 15th fret the guitar is no longer properly intonated there. It stretches less in those areas. I am writing way more than maybe you bargained for but I wanted you to know just how spectacular this guitar with the Evertune Bridge is. Ok enough about the Evertune. Let's talk about the guitar. You may have read in many reviews that this guitar is built with quality standards only seen in guitars costing 3 thousand dollars or more. The Deluxe models have incredible necks, the beauty of the bodies with abalone inlays on the fret boards, and borders, the beautiful woods can colors. As soon as you pick the guitar up it just feels right. It is balanced. The action is incredible and that is before it is even professionally setup. If I had to get critical the only thing I would love to see is an Evertune model EC with the Seymour Duncan option. I bought a second one in the amber burst just for that option. If I were into heavy metal I would keep the EMGs but passive humbuckers have more deep tones, and better highs. The EMG's sound good for cleans in the middle range. The only one other thing are the XLarge jumbo frets. When you squeeze a chord and go all the way to the fret board instead of just the top of the frets you are p
