absolutely beautiful

By jeff deasel

from germantown,md

Comments about ESP LTD Deluxe EC-1000 FR Electric Guitar:

this guitar is beautiful. whether you play clean or with distortion/gain, it does whatever you want it to. the combination of emg pickups gives you many ways to craft your tone to meet any situation. don't bother staring at the pictures,(like i did), because when you see this guitar up close, you will be amazed at the quality and workmanship. the floyd rose is perfect, and out of the box the intonation is perfect. flexible, beautiful, and one heck of a deal, do yourself a favor, and buy this guitar. thanks ESP.

Pretty nifty indeed

By Jakeeee

from belleville, mi

Comments about ESP LTD Deluxe EC-1000 FR Electric Guitar:

unlike Leffster1, as an owner of a $2500 les paul not including the blackout pickups and better tuners ive put on, to say this guitar plays better or sounds better then one is something im gonna have to strongly disagree on, and its kinda funny how gibson has set the standard so high people rate guitars as being better or worse then a les paul. but enough about gibson, i do not own this guitar, but for the last couple weeks i've made this the guitar i find when i wanna test an amp or a pedal ext. and i've been nothing but impressed, the guitar has great playability for the price range and a good sound that can take any musicians music to the next level, the guitar was thin and light ohh and not to mention the guitar has a great look to it :] all in all if your looking for the best guitar in this price range you found it

Beautiful Guitar

By Brian

from Columbus, OH

Comments about ESP LTD Deluxe EC-1000 FR Electric Guitar:

This guitar is absolutely beautiful both in appearance and play. First of all the finish is stunning and perfect adn although not everyone likes the abalone all over the guitar, I personally think it looks great. The playability of it is amazing, the slim nek is fast as lightning and the action is set up perfectly right out of the box. This was delivered in the winter (11 degrees when it was delivered) and surprisingly it was set up great even through the drastic temp. changes. The Floyd Rose stays in perfect tune and operates very smoothly. ESP has done a great job with this guitar and it's worth every penny, I'm sure I'm not the opnly person who wants the Les Paul style married to a shredder's set up.

AMAZING!!!!!!

By Kemdall

from Florida

Comments about ESP LTD Deluxe EC-1000 FR Electric Guitar:

This guitar is amazing. The Floyd Rose keeps you dive-bombing all-day and stying in tune aswell. Also this guitar has amazing lines and ridiculously low action. This guitar's abalone body, neck, and head binding also dosen't hurt. The EMG's make it scream, The Floyd Rose keeps it in tune, and it is beautiful. What mor could you want?

Finally!

By Chris

from Minneapolis, MN

Comments about ESP LTD Deluxe EC-1000 FR Electric Guitar:

I have always loved the Les Paul body style, but struggled to find something within my price range that also has a tremelo. Finally, finally, finally, I get to keep my beloved LP body style and get to have a Floyd Rose bridge! I picked this up about 6 months ago and it has now become my main guitar on stage and at rehearsals. I'll let the looks of this guitar speak for themselves, but for the record - very pretty. The action is fast and the neck remains smooth if treated...watch the sweat though. The active pickups are very hot compared to my Les Paul (more my problem when switching between active and passive type guitars). The clean tone can sound a little "tinny" compared to my LP, but it's manageable with the right amp adjustments. And like others have already mentioned, this guitar can take whatever type of abuse you can give the tremelo and it will still stay in tune. I never thought I'd have a reason to put away my Jackson Soloist, but here it is: a 24 fret, active pickup, Floyd Rose equipped guitar with the look, feel, and tone of a Les Paul. You get the best of both worlds at an affordable price. You need this guitar!

EC 1000FR

By Dave Lacoste

from seattle wa

Comments about ESP LTD Deluxe EC-1000 FR Electric Guitar:

This guitar is incredible. I am very happy with this purchase. I have tone AND a floyd rose.....FINALLY........I also own the EC 1000 with duncans and a stoptail....(another killer axe) I am a les paul/passive pickup kind of guy so I may switch over from active....but I will put either one of these guitars up against ANY gibson les paul any day. I have yet to find a les paul that compares in quality and craftmanship to these eclipse models. Tone and feel....with looks that turn heads....gotta love it. Buy one of these and you won't be dissapointed.

Awesome guitar!

By Leffster1

from Manalapan, NJ

Comments about ESP LTD Deluxe EC-1000 FR Electric Guitar:

I've wanted the EC-1000 for quite some time, but never purchased because there was no Floyd Rose option. Well as soon as they offered the Floyd Rose I bought it. The sound is incredible (clean or distortion). The factory setup was okay but I had the shop lower the string height. The action is great. I have never played a guitar this good before. Plays as well or even better than a Les Paul but for a lot less $$. That's the best part!

Absolutely a deal

By Dane

from Raleigh, NC

Comments about ESP LTD Deluxe EC-1000 FR Electric Guitar:

This guitar is fantastic. I had been wanting a Les Paul style LTD with a Floyd but hadn't been able to afford it until now. I have multiple other guitars including PRS, Jackson and Ibanez and I sold all of them once I received this thing. The neck is extremely comfortable... its thin but not awkwardly thin. The EMG's of course sound awesome, great clarity and sustain. The finish is beautiful with the flamed top and abalone binding. Some say the abalone is too flashy but if you look at it in person its very classy. I couldn't be more satisfied with this guitar and recommending it to someone is a no brainer.

UPDATE

By Dane

from raleigh, nc

Comments about ESP LTD Deluxe EC-1000 FR Electric Guitar:

I've had this guitar now for a little over a month and can say I haven't regretted a thing. I like to switch up my equipment pretty frequently but I can guarantee I'll never be letting go of this guitar. It still out plays the two other guitars that I have by a long shot. The neck is extremely comfortable, I feel its the best part of the guitar. I prefer it over an Ibanez wizard. I've been running this thing through an RP-7 valve and it can make so many different sounds, its super versatile. The floyd 1000 seems to be right on par with the original floyd. I've only had to tune it once since owning it and I can say I bend strings hard and often... no problems at all. Totally fantastic guitar, couldn't be more pleased.

Great Axe.

By John

from Indianapolis,In

Comments about ESP LTD Deluxe EC-1000 FR Electric Guitar:

Awesome Axe. I've had this guitar for over a month now and I am very pleased. The neck feel VERY comfortable, The finish is gorgeous, and the trem is top quality. If you are wondering about the floyd rose It is a series 1000. That is not a bad thing in this case. It is an original floyd rose (exact specs I believe) The only difference is that it is made in Korea. I can tune with a chromatic tuner, dive bomb a bunch of times, check the tuning and it will still be dead on. Overall this is an awesome guitar. It makes it very hard to decide to play this or my Gibson. Note: I am getting some slight oscillations from the trem springs. They don't come through the amp. There are upgrades you can buy to fix this for cheap.Do yourself a favor and buy this guitar or an Ltd in the series 400 line or above. They have always been consistently top notch.
