The ESP LTD EC-1000QM electric guitar pairs luxurious aesthetics with versatile tone shaping for the modern metal guitarist. Featuring a gorgeous quilted maple top and See Thru Black Cherry finish, the EC-1000QM turns heads with its upscale appeal. Its set-neck mahogany body and neck deliver resonant, full-bodied tone perfect for high-gain playing. Dual Fishman Fluence Modern Humbucker pickups, with two distinct voices each, offer exceptional versatility in dialing in your tone. With the EC-1000QM's fast Macassar ebony fingerboard and 24 extra-jumbo frets, you'll fly up and down the neck with ease. And the TonePros locking bridge and tailpiece, combined with LTD locking tuners, ensure your ax stays rock-solid in tune through even the most intense performances.

Resonant Tones With a Mahogany Body and Neck

The EC-1000QM's set-neck mahogany body and three-piece mahogany neck deliver the resonant, full-bodied tone that mahogany is revered for. With exceptional note definition and natural warmth, the mahogany construction makes the EC-1000QM ideal for metal and hard rock styles. The set-neck design enhances resonance and sustain compared to bolt-on alternatives. And with its 24.75" scale length and thin U neck profile, the EC-1000QM plays fast and smooth.

Built for Speed With Macassar Ebony Fingerboard

When it's time for high-speed soloing, the EC-1000QM has you covered. Its Macassar ebony fingerboard has a fast, sleek feel, while the 24 extra-jumbo stainless steel frets give you ample room for wide vibrato and string bending. Jumbo pearl ESP flag inlays provide visual references as you blaze up and down the neck. The 25.5" scale length adds tension for stable tuning when using extreme low tunings. Whether you need pinpoint accuracy for recording or lightning fast runs to wow a crowd, the EC-1000QM enables your best performances.

Shape Your Sound With Fishman Fluence Pickups

A pair of Fishman Fluence Modern Humbuckers give you exceptional versatility for dialing in your tone. Each pickup has two distinct voices, selectable via a push-pull control. The ceramic bridge pickup accesses a hot, tight voice perfect for aggressive rhythm playing or a more organic lead tone. The alnico neck pickup offers a modern active tone with articulation and headroom or a vintage-flavored passive voice. With the EC-1000QM's tonal options, you can tweak your sound to perfectly suit everything from crushing djent to singing leads.

Sleek Style With a Quilted Maple Top and Cherry Finish

One look at the EC-1000QM's quilted maple top and eye-catching See Thru Black Cherry finish and you'll be inspired to pick it up and start shredding. The luxurious appointment of the quilt maple gives the EC-1000QM a high-end, upscale vibe. Multi-ply body and headstock binding add to the upscale aesthetic, with the black hardware providing an elegant contrast. Whether on stage or in the studio, the EC-1000QM's sleek looks will fuel your creativity and motivation.
