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.

Almost 2 months ago i've bought my EC1000p guitar. Recently i can hear some differences between Jack2(Mag) and Jack1(Mag/Piezo) while it is switched to "Mag only" .less gain and muddy sound while using Jack 1. why is that?Could it be the battery?

Hey Amirreza, first assumption would be the battery.  Be sure not to leave this plugged in while you are not using it, the jack acts as an on/off switch for the battery.  If you need further assistance with this you may reach out to our customer service department at

Hi, I've got my ltd EC1000p several months ago and everything was working fine. but the other day when I plugged my guitar in JACK 1 with mono cable the magnetic pickup didn't work. when I use the mag/piezo selector only piezo pickup have sound. It means I don't have the blend of both magnetic and piezo right now. please help me with this. what could be the problem?

it is good to know that when I use JACK 2 the magnetic pickups work fine and when I use a stereo cable in JACK 1, just piezo pick up have sound and nothing is coming out of magnetic pickups.

appreciate any help or idea on this.

Hi Arman, Did you try changing the battery? That is always the first thing to check. If it's not that, then I would suggest checking the output jack wiring and making sure that something did not break or move. It is common for example if the jack gets loose it could turn or spin and one of the wires or contacts could break or touch something and cause the output to be lost. If you need further help please contact your dealer or our customer service team at

Thanks for the help. I changed the battery and it solved the problem. the old battery had around 6V in it instead of 9V.

Thanks again for the reply.

Todd B. ESP

Hey Arman, Glad to hear that! One tip I can give you is to unplug your cable when not in use, because it will drain the battery slowly. Usually batteries will last a long time, maybe a year or 6 months, but once the voltage gets much lower than 9V it should be replaced. Sometimes you will hear a distorted sound or "fuzzy" sound and it could be the battery is getting too weak.

I see that there has been an update to this model and it now includes push pull coil splits. Mine does not have that so I am wondering if it is possible to add to mine (does the pickups have the needed wiring in the pre updated model) and if it is possible, do you sell the items that are needed to make it work?





Todd B. ESP

Hi Snir, The push pull function to split the coil is done by changing out the tone pot and reconfiguring the wiring. You should not have to replace the pickup. You can take your guitar to any repair person to have this sort of thing done. Sorry but we do not sell the parts to do this. If you need more help on this contact our customer service team at

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.

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.
