Many of the new guitar and bass models we introduced for 2018 are already available at your authorized ESP dealer. This spotlight article series will give you some extra details about new guitars that you can buy today!
EC-1000 See Thru Green and See Thru Purple
It's no secret that the LTD Deluxe EC-1000 models are among the best-selling guitars we've ever made, and it's no surprise as to why this is the case. The EC-1000 offers all of the professional components and excellent build quality that makes it great for serious recording and stage use. If there was ever any criticism about the available choices in the EC-1000 range, it was simply that people wanted more variety to help them be unique and stand out from other players. Enter the newest additions to the series, which offer See Thru Green and See Thru Purple finishes over great-looking flamed maple tops.
These exciting new EC-1000 versions have binding on the body, neck, and matching headstock, as well as a Macassar ebony fingerboard with 24 extra-jumbo frets, and high-quality Seymour Duncan Jazz/Custom-5 pickups along with other premier components like LTD locking tuners and a Tonepros locking TOM bridge and tailpiece. They also offer set-thru construction with a mahogany body and three-piece mahogany neck.
H-1001 See Thru Black Cherry
With their arched tops and smooth playing feel, the LTD H Series guitars are based on one of the most beloved ESP shapes... the Horizon. With the new H-1001, you get a number of enhancements that make it rank among guitars costing much more. The translucent See Thru Black Cherry finish -- which is available today -- is applied over a quilted maple top with amazing figured wood grain. Excellent for any music genre and playing style where impressive guitar work is required, we've updated the H-1001 to offer a set of Seymour Duncan Sentient and Pegasus pickups that are direct-mounted to the guitar's body. These pickups handle everything from brutal, heavy riffs to highly articulate single-note solos, with harmonic complexity and excellent string isolation.
The H-1001 is accentuated with body/headstock binding accompanied by abalone purfling and constructed with a set-thru three-piece maple neck for speedy access to the highest frets, and a Macassar ebony fingerboard with 24 XJ frets. It also includes a Hipshot hardtail tailpiece with string-thru-body setup for even better sustain and power.
