EC-1000 PIEZO

SEE THRU BLUE

$1,149.00

As one of the most innovative and versatile guitars in the LTD Deluxe Series, the EC-1000 PIEZO is our first model to include both standard magnetic pickups as well as a completely separate piezo pickup system. Piezo pickups create a very different sound from typical magnetic pickups, offering excellent articulate, acoustic-like tones. With the EC-1000 PIEZO, you can use the mini toggle switch to select between the standard pickup set -- the excellent  Seymour Duncan ’59 and JB -- and a Fishman Powerbridge and Tailpiece, or even combine them both. This level of sonic flexibility continues to the guitar's dual output jacks, allowing you to route the pickups to different combinations of amplifiers or interfaces onstage for live performances or in the studio for recording sessions. The EC-1000 PIEZO offers a great-looking quilted maple top on its mahogany body, and is available in See Thru Blue and See Thru Black finishes.

currently where they build this guitar?

Carl N.

Currently produced in Korea and Indonesia, hope this helps!

Strider

I was wondering what the overall weight of the guitar is. Thank you....

Carl N.

These are about 8.5lbs, though no two instruments will be the same so some can be heavier and some lighter

Curt P.

Hi, I see it shows this guitar color in blue and black. I'm left handed and I can't find a blue guitar left handed. Do us lefties only get black and not blue?

Carl N.

For the piezo model this will only be available in black for left handed orientation.

Kyle G.

This says the electronics are active but I was under the impression that theSD 59 and JB were both passive. I am mistaken or does the active part exclusively refer to the Piezo pup? Or is it possible that the magnetic pups are passive but feature an active on board preamp? All comments will help. Thanks!

Todd B. ESP

Hi Kyle, you are right. The active portion refers to the Piezo preamp, but the pickups do not use a battery. The pickups can function separately and do not run through the preamp. The preamp is only for the piezo system.

Is there any difference between a 2018 ESP LTD EC-1000p DELUXE and a 2020 ESP LTD 1000P DELUXE?

Carl N.

No specification changes were made to this model during that time.
