Description

ESP’s LTD brand, which debuted in 1996, helped bring ESP’s quality and reputation to a more accessible pricing point for all players. LTD offers a wide selection of models to suit everyone from beginners to professional musicians.

While ESP’s LTD line is well-known for its solid line of cheap guitars, the EC-1000 proves that you shouldn’t overlook them in the higher-end category. This stunning model features a premium design with plenty of sparkles and a striking tone to match. There’s a lot on offer for a guitar under $1000, so let’s take a deeper look.  The ESP LTD EC1000 Deluxe is a lean, mean speed machine with the tone and feel of a custom shop thrasher at a price that will make you squirm.

The basic guitar designs of the past are enough for the simple strumming and charming melodic lines of old-time rock’n’roll, but if you want to shred with speed and precision, you’d best make sure your axe is up to the task. You should make sure it doesn’t readily fall out of tune, has a screaming tone, and plays quicker than anything else. The ESP LTD EC1000 Deluxe satisfies all of these requirements, and it does it in style.

The EC-1000 is definitely a powerful guitar, but don’t be fooled: it can also create some excellent clean tones with wonderful balance and clarity. But if you stomp on that distortion pedal, you’ll be blown away by the power. The EMG provides a massive amount of power with a lot of intensity and detail, which cuts through any mix. The EMG 60 is a terrific neck fit – solos sound articulate, with much of sustain and character, and pinch harmonics scream.

You probably won’t need an original ESP if you have an LTD like this! The LTD EC-1000 has relatively few flaws and offers excellent value for the money. It’s a stage performer with great aesthetics, a luxurious feel, professional-grade sound, and butter-like playing.

  1. Mathew Vargas

    This guitar is a fantastic buy. My 2011 Gibson SG was sold since it was no longer playable after 7 years. It was even put up twice for me. After reading several evaluations, I decided to give the EC-1000 a go. I’m so pleased I did. It sounds and plays better, and it stays in tune longer. It’s a work of art, and it sounds fantastic. The locking tuners and TonePros bridge are fantastic. This guitar sounds and plays like a $2000 guitar!!

    It needed a set-up, especially when I changed the strings to tens, for heavy metal. It had 9 strings and one string was missing. Always buy instruments from music stores, as a reminder to myself. Otherwise, the instrument is in excellent condition, with no dings or chips. I bought the black with gold hardware, and the feel/action is fantastic, although it might be due to Instrument Center’s interference; the guitar, on the other hand, is really attractive!

    This guitar is pure joy to play. It sounds fantastic and it arrived in excellent shape and tuned. Perfectly holds the tune.
