(U.S. Only)

The Arrow-1000 takes the completely unique, bold design of the Arrow shape and offers it with the excellent build quality and high-end components expected from the LTD Deluxe Series. An excellent choice for all genres of metal, hard rock, or any other form of music where you want to stand out from the crowd, the Arrow-1000 offers a neck-thru-body design with mahogany body, 3-piece maple neck, and Macassar ebony fingerboard, and its aggressive vibe is complemented by its set of EMG 85 (neck) and EMG 81 (bridge) pickups. It also offers a Floyd Rose SE bridge with stainless steel screws and precise Grover tuners. The Arrow-1000 is available in two finishes: Snow White and the incredible, iridescent Violet Andromeda.

Guitar World LTD Deluxe Arrow-1000 Video Review

Paul Riario, Tech Editor from Guitar World Magazine, tried out the LTD Deluxe Arrow-1000 in Violet Andromeda finish. He says, "The ESP Guitars LTD Arrow-1000 is an absolute metal, prog rock, hard rock guitar dream of an axe....

I just got this baby, it's wonderful! Playability is insane, I lowered the string action to around 0.7 mm on the high E and still plays without any fret buzz! The finish is gorgeous and the feeling is incredible! Made in Korea, what less could you expect?

thanks for sharing!

I have purchased this guitar and I have to say it sounds great. The finish is perfect. Also, EMG active pickups are absolutely fantastic; therefore, I purchased the snow white one as well. Thanks ESP for making best quality guitars. I have been playing V shape my whole life, but this guitar is something else and super comfortable to play. Just wondering, does ESP have any future plans to provide more of this 1000 Series with different colors? I would like to have more of this guitar.

Glad you enjoy it, typically we release new models at our yearly trade show at the beginning of the year.  Be sure to check back early 2021 to see what new models we have introduced

I've had this guitar for over a year now and I have to say it sounds and plays better than the day I got it. Absolutely crushing tone for days. Cleans up nicely for melodic tunes as well. If you're considering it then just do it, there's a reason so many respected artists play Esp/Ltd. Join the many, you will not be disappointed. 

Carl N.

glad you are enjoying it


Wow these are amazing. Just wondering, does ESP have any future plans to provide the "Black Andromeda finish" to this 1000 Series? 

Carl N.

Perhaps we do, perhaps we don't, you'll just have to wait and see.

J'ai cette guitare depuis six mois et est absolument fantastique.

C'est ma quatrième guitare ESP (LTD) et c'est certainement ma guitare préférée; dépasse de loin ma G-LP, mes strats et mes PRS’.

Merci beaucoup mes amis!
