When I went up to guitarcenter and played it I was absolutely amazed with everything about it. Sweep picking was a breeze. The pinch-harmonics screamed. The neck was so fast it was like playing butter. I play many styles of music and I haven't found one that this guitar doesn't go with. The sustain is flawless, I could play a note before I went to sleep, and I'd wake up to find the note was still playing. I would highly suggest buying this guitar no matter what.

I have owned this guitar many times in the past, so it is a workhorse. One of the best values at this price I can think of. My only bad experience was I ordered online and opted to pick up in the store. When I got to the store, they gave me a floor demo model. This is not usually a problem, as they are usually lower priced, but I paid for a brand new one. I didn't get a box or any paperwork for the warranty, and was just handed a guitar. The color of the bridge is already fading and it appears to have been heavily played. Otherwise it is a great guitar.

Comments about ESP LTD Deluxe EC-1000 Electric Guitar:

I've been playing guitar for 15+ years. This guitar offers versatility as well as playability. The locking tuners are top notch and the pickups scream. I play a wide variety of music and haven't found one style that doesn't fit.

Fantastic guitar

By Rob

from Jamesburg, NJ

Comments about ESP LTD Deluxe EC-1000 Electric Guitar:

Dont get the stars wrong, this guitar is great. But with the exact same guitar at sam ash in almost every color for $599, it would be stupid to buy this guitar from guitar center. The guitar itself is awesome. good sound, solid harmonics, the works. the only two cons are that its heavy, and that even though the tuning heads lock the strings from stretching out of tune, getting the strings in tune in the first place is difficult. The tuning heads as you lock it detunes the strings. so actually dialing in the tune can be frustrating.

yes

By Chad

Comments about ESP LTD Deluxe EC-1000 Electric Guitar:

I could write a short novel telling the things i love about this guitar but ill just keep it nice and to the point. I got the black cherry one and it looks amazing. Its everything i was looking for in a guitar after trading and trading and looking forever and trying to find the 1 guitar that was for me. This guitar is a professional, built to the best specs and features of any guitar ive evr played or any guitar on the market in my opinion. i wanted a guitar with no pain in the neck tone robbing floyd rose trem. i wanted mahagony body with active emg's instead of settling for agaithis body and passive pickups which are good also. i just wanted the best of every feature and this guitar delivers it all and then some. it sounds better the more i play it and i have become a better player bc of it. it also has a mahogany neck instead of maple which i think further improves the tone with a mahogany body. with the specifications of this guitar it naturally,,{ after reasearching other companies products } should be priced over 2 grand easily and could be priced 2 - 3 grand and it wouldnt be out of the ordinary. this is truly one of esp's finer products at an amazing price for what u get. I love everything about it

Ec- 1000

By Victor Gonzalez

from Spring

Comments about ESP LTD Deluxe EC-1000 Electric Guitar:

I picked this guitar up right after i finished playing on an ibanez and schecter, and this guitar put the others to shame. Pinches just scream, and you can get some really heavy and dark tones with this guitar even wothout a really nice amp. I would recommend this guitar to everyone who is alive, its the best guitar i have ever played. It stays in tune so great and its quite a beauty. This guitar might as well be the perfect example for how ever guitar should aim to be. Just go ahead get up, go to guitar center and play on it. Trust me you wont ever want to stop.

Eclipse

By Scott

from Appleton, Wisconsin

Comments about ESP LTD Deluxe EC-1000 Electric Guitar:

I have had this guitar for about seven months or so and it is an AMAZING guitar! The pickups in this guitar are just phenomenal and the neck is just perfect. This guitar has that really nice thick Les Paul sound but it is a fairly light guitar too which is really nice. The thing that I REALLY like about this guitar is that the pickups not only gave you that hi-gain shred sound but with the right amp settings they will give you a nice blues, rock, country, and actually just about any kind of tone you want. The finish on this instrument is also perfect. You have to see this guitar and play it and you will known instantly how amazing it really is. This is DEFINITELY an amazing value!

Comments about ESP LTD Deluxe EC-1000 Electric Guitar:

this guitar is very versatile, but its best area is crunchrock and metal. the EMG picjups are fantastic, and satin black finish makes people say, "duuuuude!" I love mine and you will to.

Crunch and ....

By Stiles

from PDX

Comments about ESP LTD Deluxe EC-1000 Electric Guitar:

Yeah, I love this guitar, I bought the VB about a year ago and it has withstood a lot of practices and gigs but It hasn't been trouble free. From the get go I noticed the tone was really weak through the 81, I just assumed it was my Marshall but after a month of testing different configurations it turned out that the pickup was bad, so I sent it to EMG and they sent me a new one. What a huge difference that made. But it was a bit of an inconvenience. The Faded black finish scratches way to easily and shows. About a month ago I noticed the screws holding the strap pegs in place were backing out even after tightening them, so I glued them in place, problem solved. Overall I like the sound of this guitar but it really is only good for metal and hardcore, I currently play in a band that is more punk/rock and my schecter with passive pups has taken place as my main guitar but I still bust this one out on a couple songs that require more crunch and/or lead playing.

esp ltd ec-1000 vintage black

By Mike

from NJ

Comments about ESP LTD Deluxe EC-1000 Electric Guitar:

I played this guitar at my local guitar center and as soon as it picked it up, I was blown away. The body is light weight and thin (a good thing) but offers massive sustain with the EMG pickups. The entire look of the guitar and presentation is flawless. This IS THE BEST guitar i have EVER played.

My Favorite Guitar

By Casey Hicks

from Random Lake, Wisconsin

Comments about ESP LTD Deluxe EC-1000 Electric Guitar:

This is honestly my favorite guitar of all time. I love it because of how easy it is to play, the sound of it, and the look. The strings are just the right height from the fret board and makes it so easy to play. The sound is great, you could have the worst amp and a terrible pedal and this guitar would still sound great. The EMG's are heaven. The over all body shape is great. If you're looking for something like a Les Paul, but can't afford it, or don't like the exact look of one... then this is a great guitar for you.
