(U.S. Only)

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-1000 VB Duncan is consistently one of the most popular guitars due to its combination of incredible looks and great performance. It offers a vintage looking body/neck/headstock binding and gold hardware, and includes premier components like LTD locking tuners, a Tonepros locking TOM bridge and tailpiece, and classic Seymour Duncan JB/’59 passive pickups. It also offers set-thru construction with a mahogany body, 3 pc. mahogany neck, and 24-fret Macassar ebony fingerboard. Available in Vintage Black finish.

Can I assume that all guitars of this model with the flag on the 12th fret and model name on the truss rod cover have the push/pull feature? Or are there hybrid models out there where the model name has already been moved to the truss rod cover, but still do not have push/pull? I ask this because not all retailers advertise the push/pull feature, and I would like to know if it is possible to identify only through the pictures.

Nothing planned at the moment

I've noticed the ec1000 with seymour duncans are made in China and ec1000 with EMG are made in Korea. What's the reason behind that? £900 for a Chinese guitar hummmm

While we have split production of this instrument between our Korean and Indonesian factories we have not produced any 1000 series LTD models within China.

What is the estimated wait time for this guitar? And,  can it be set up 1/2 down from you guys or will i need to take it to my local guy?

Carl N.

these should be available again in August, these would receive our standard factory setup which would include the string gauges listed in standard tuning

Hi there, got mine in March2020. Its a great instrument but....

The bridge is loosing it's gold colour at the 6th string palm position.

The 3-way- switch sometimes is not working correct. E.g. when switching from upper position (neck PU) down to bridge PU the pickup sometimes is noch working ( no sound)

I think this is a mechanical problem...
