The ESP LTD Deluxe EC-1000 Electric Guitar is a force of artistic expression. This visually arresting instrument is crafted with tone and playability in mind, ready to inspire your creativity. The EC-1000's quilted maple top gives way to a mahogany body and set mahogany neck for robust, harmonically rich tone. Its fast, smooth profile allows intricate soloing and power chords with equal prowess. EMG-81/60 active pickups provide aggressive tone and excellent note definition so each nuance rings through. Finished with abalone flag inlays, the ebony fretboard feels sleek under your fingertips.
Quilted Maple Top and Mahogany Core Produce Powerful Tone
The EC-1000's quilted maple top is stunning to behold, but also enhances its tone. In concert with the mahogany body and neck, the guitar sings with harmonically rich tone and excellent snap. Its set neck construction yields long sustain to let each note ring. The mahogany core gives a warm, balanced tone that cuts through when needed. This combination of tonewoods produces a powerful voice to suit the demands of any style.
EMG Active Pickups Provide Aggressive Voice
The EC-1000 features an EMG-81/60 pickup set that provides an aggressive tone with outstanding note definition. The EMG-81 in the bridge position gives you a hot, punchy tone for solos and heavy rhythm playing. The EMG-60 in the neck position has a warm, articulate voice perfect for complex chords and melody lines. With a quick coil tap, you can access single-coil tones for added versatility. These pickups were designed to cut through high gain amps, giving you the output and timbre you need for heavy rock and metal.
Fast, Smooth Neck and Ebony Fretboard Enable Intricate Playing
The EC-1000's thin U-shaped neck has a smooth, fast profile that allows intricate solos, quick position shifts and barre chords with ease. Its 24.75" scale length provides tension that feels familiar to most players. The ebony fretboard contributes to the neck's sleek playability and has elegant abalone flag inlays as position markers. Whether you prefer shred solos, chunky rhythm parts or walking basslines, this neck was made to handle it all.
Premium Components Provide Rock-Solid Performance
To match its tone and playability, the EC-1000 features premium components for rock-solid performance. Its TonePros locking TOM bridge and tailpiece provide accurate intonation and tuning stability under aggressive playing styles. Grover tuners work in tandem to keep this guitar in tune through long sets and frequent string bending. With its premium electronics and hardware, the EC-1000 delivers professional performance and reliability night after night.
