Hello, I bought this guitar EC-1001FRSTB in Germany, I bought it on request since there was no stock in the physical store. I would like to explain my disappointment when receiving it, because recently there have been changes in the construction of the guitar, the inscription "EC-1000" is no longer in the 12th fret, and the hardware is no longer nickel black, now it is black, Both things greatly affect the aesthetics of the guitar. I think the brand should change the photos of the guitar because it is far from what you see in the photos to what you finally get.
Serve this comment as a warning for potential buyers and for the manufacturer to change the photos of the product for others that honor the truth. Finally I had to return it unfortunately. For my part I will continue looking for the model that I fell in love with that is exactly the same as the photo that can be seen on this page.
I apologize for my poor English

Hi FCO Javier, Thanks for sharing your experience. We are sorry to hear you are disappointed. This is a running change that we have made in the last year but we need to update our photos on our site. The stainless screws on the bridge and nut are actually an upgrade. For the 12th fret, we have removed all the blocks with the model name. That is a running change we have implemented for all LTD guitars.

What kind of Floyd Rose is on this guitar ? Thx !

Todd B. ESP

Hi Guillaume, We use the 1000 series, which is a production version of the ORIGINAL, but made in Korea. We upgraded to stainless screws for our 1000 Deluxe series since last year. So it's called the 1000SE bridge.

Guillaume M.

Can you update the photos of the guitar with the last upgrades ? Thx

Todd B. ESP

Hi Guillaume, we will update very soon. thank you for your patience.
