    Ec-1000 dates?

    I've been trying to get a decent feel of when my guitars were made...I've got a red ec 1000 with sperzel tuners and black hardware. Until a few months ago, I was unaware that ec1000's now have black chrome hardware and esp branded tuners. When did esp change that? Thanks

      I think 2006 was the last year with those specs. You can generally take a look at your serial number, they have a bit of a date code, it should be W06XX or something like that. In 2007 they had the Schallers but kept the black and 2008 they went to the ESP tuners and black chrome. You can also check out the archived catalogs at the top of the page under support.
