EC-1001FR

SEE THRU BLACK

Guitars in the LTD EC-1000 Series are designed to offer the tone, feel, looks, and quality that working professional musicians need in an instrument, along with the pricing that typical musicians can still afford. The EC-1001FR gives you a winning combination of a Floyd Rose locking tremolo, ready to add explosive expression to your playing, and EMG’s hot-looking Metalworks 81/60 active pickups with brushed black chrome covers, with matching black nickel hardware. You also get the sumptuous look of a flamed maple top, and set-thru construction with a mahogany body, 3 pc. mahogany neck, and 24-fret pau ferro fingerboard. Available in See Thru Black finish.

I want an EC model with an Ebony Fretboard, 24 Frets and a Floyd Rose. I settled for Sweetwater’s Violet Shadow version of this guitar but I just wish it had an Ebony Fretboard. I’d rather have a 24 Fret Rosewood Fretboard than a 22 Fret Ebony Fretboard like the Gary Holt model but just barely. I don’t know why it’s impossible to get the specs I want on an EC model but hopefully one day, preferably in an E-II EC model you guys will make one.

Hi Richard, Thanks for your comments and suggestions. Those are some good points and I will pass them along to our design team.

Are you guys going to upload a video of this guitar? Looks awesome!

 

Todd B. ESP

Hi Lucas, thanks for that suggestion. We are always working on videos and I will pass along this recommendation to our media team.

Welp it looked good before, and I like the new look of it EXCEPT this really should have had the Macassar Ebony board. Is this the Floyd that comes with a a big brass block?

Todd B. ESP

Hi Adam, thanks for your comments. No we do not currently use the big brass block. This 1000 series FR bridge is what they refer to as the "ORIGINAL" spec, but made in Asia rather than Germany. the materials and build are the same as the Original from Germany but made at a more affordable price. We are currently using the "SE" version which includes Stainless Steel screws for lock nut and saddles.

When are you going to update the picture?

 

Todd B. ESP

Hi Lucas, this model is on an update scheduled for this month. Thanks for the reminder!

Lucas S.

Are you guys going to change prices too?

 

Todd B. ESP

Hi Lucas, The current price listed is correct, it is not going to change.

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.
