The electronics are solderless right? I bought this axe and wanted to put an emg het set 

Sepehr S.

Ps : it hasn’t arrived yet so i hadn’t checked it and just wanted to know in advance 

Carl N.

The pickups will have quick connects like all EMGs but the wiring will not be solderless

Sepehr S.

I wanted to buy this axe but the 2017 or 2016 model I don’t know the exact year but it’s probably one of these two and i wanted to know the bridge model is it a floyd special?

Carl N.

This will use a Floyd Rose 1000 series bridge

Does the EC1001FR come with the same neck shape as the GH600? Contour and thickness? I have the GH600 and love the guitar but would love to get a 24 fret guitar with the same neck.

Carl N.

Yes, these will both feature thin U shaped necks

Hi is it possible next year that Ebony would be used on the EC1000fr? I feel the look of the guitar is slightly compromised by the light brown colour of the pau ferro fretboard and definitely would look more cohesive with ebony like most other eclipse models. Is this just to save money since you have fitted a Floyd? As it seems a no brainer to have an ebony board on an already black instrument. This morning s the only thing stopping me purchasing this beautiful guitar.

Carl N.

Hey Lee, thank you for your insight!  We'll just have to wait for 2020 to see what new instruments and specifications we will be offering.

Adam Y.

Definitely, the Macassar Ebony should have been used on this guy

Carl N.

Thanks for your opinion Adam!

I’ve been shopping around and this is the guitar for me!  I just can’t get past the light brown fretboard.  Is there any update on a dark fretboard for this model?  

Carl N.

Hey Bassstudent, not at the moment.  

MDB

Totally agree. Ebony fretboard would enhance the look and sound of the guitar, in my opinion. I own a ESP EC-1000 VB (Korea) and an ESP Eclipse ii (Japan) and they look and sound great!! 

Carl N.

Thanks for your opinion!

Why do I see some some EC 1001FR with a heel similar to a les Paul and others are contoured to to the body for a smoother transition to the upper frets. And when did LTD move manufacturing for the 1000 series guitars to China/Indonesia. I just ordered a EC 1001FR and if it comes from China or Indo it will go back.

Carl N.

Hey Charlie, the shaping of the heel on these instruments has been updated a little while ago to the more rounded look that you see now.  1000 series LTDs are produced in both Indonesia and Korea, it's a shame you feel that way about instruments produced in Indonesia.  These are no different than their counterparts made in Korea, if we felt their quality of workmanship was that off we would not have them produced there.   Hope you enjoy your instrument when you receive it!
