EC-1000 PIEZO

SEE THRU BLACK

$1,099.00

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.

Does the back of the neck have a gloss or satin finish?

Todd B. ESP

Hi Kyle, the back of neck is gloss finish with matching paint.

Mei M.

Hello, in the diagram for EC1000P it says jack 2 for magnetic PU only. But in video demonstration it says its for piezo PU. Am I missing somethng? Thanks.

Todd B. ESP

Hi Mei, The diagram on the product page is correct. Please refer to that information and thanks for pointing this out.

Is it possible to get the piezo in a different guitar? In a custom one? I really want something like the LTD H-1001, neck-through, double-cutaway with the LTD H-1001 headstock and a piezo. 

Todd B. ESP

Hi Christopher, This is not an option but it's possible we could introduce this Piezo bridge on another model in the future. This bridge doesn't work on our H-1001 because we use a Hipshot hardtail bridge. But you could also customize any guitar with a TOM (Tune-O-Matic) bridge and install this Fishman piezo bridge.

can i get this guitar with an evertune bridge?

Todd B. ESP

Hi Stephen, Sorry this model is not currently available with an Evertune bridge. It would not be possible because the Piezo pickup for the acoustic sound is located inside the "tune-o-matic" Fishman bridge on the original design. By putting an Evertune bridge on this model, you would not be able to have the piezo acoustic sound option. We do make 2 different EC-1000 models with Evertune bridge and Duncan pickups, one of those would be your best option.

Is there any way to pay the difference and get emg 81 85 into this?

Todd B. ESP

Hi Jordan, thanks for your question. All our standard production models like this are built according to the original spec, so unfortunately we are not able to make one for you with different pickups.
