LTD EC1000 Single Cut Black Natural Burst


Instrument Categories: , ,

The LTD EC1000 in Black Natural Burst is designed by ESP in Japan and built in Indonesia. This is a well designed and built modern take on the single-cutaway carved top solidbody guitar concept.  This model uses Mahogany body with a burled Poplar top,  and a ‘Set-Through’ neck joint for the 3-piece Mahogany neck.   The ‘Set-Through’ idea essentially uses a very long tenon,  but does not go all the way through to the tail end of the body, typically ending after the stop tailpiece.   This provides significant strength and coupling between the neck and body.    The tenon is often completely hidden from view.

Here’s the builder on the LTD EC1000:

“Guitars in the LTD 1000 Series are designed to offer the tone, feel, looks and quality that working professional musicians require in an instrument, and the LTD EC1000 has consistently ranked among the world’s most popular guitar models for the past 20+ years by delivering the high quality single-cutaway guitar shape designed for serious musicians at a price that everyone can afford.

The outstanding LTD EC1000 offers a burled poplar top on a mahogany body with a three-piece mahogany neck and Macassar ebony fingerboard. It includes a set of high-output Seymour Duncan Sentient (neck) and Pegasus (bridge) passive pickups, splitable by a push-pull control, for mind-blowing tones for metal, rock, fusion, progressive, and other genres. It includes flag inlays, full body/neck/headstock binding, and premier components like LTD locking tuners and a TonePros locking TOM bridge and tailpiece.

Available in Black Natural Burst and Blue Natural Fade finishes.”

The LTD EC1000 is sold without case.   We can provide a wide range of gig bags and hard shell cases.
