(U.S. Only)

The LTD EC-1000 remains one of ESP’s most popular guitar series, offering the tone, feel, looks, and quality that working professional musicians need in an instrument, along with the pricing that serious musicians can afford. With the EC-1000T, musicians get a traditional full-thickness body that is chambered for weight relief, making long live shows less of a strain on your back. It offers set-thru construction for easy access to the higher frets, but one aspect of the EC-1000T is anything but old-school: the EC-1000T is the first production guitar to offer a set of new Fishman Fluence® Open Core Classic Humbucker pickups with three voicings. On the neck pickup, Voice 1 offers the coveted vintage P.A.F. tone, Voice 2 is an airy chime, and Voice 3 is a vintage single-coil. For the bridge pickup, Voice 1 is the P.A.F., Voice 2 is the classic hot-rodded humbucker, and Voice 3 is an overwound single coil. The resulting sonic versatility of this guitar is astounding. The EC-1000T also features a mahogany body with a flamed maple top, and an excellent Honey Burst Satin finish.

Help!! The shaft on the push pull pot that controls coil split came completely out of the pot. 


I can replace it no problem. What kind of push pull pot do I need for replacement?

Hey same problem for me my toggle switch on the neck pup 95 % of the works. And i bought the ltd ec-1000t with Fishman pickups 

And also i think they are faulty or cheap toggle switches. You can feel it when switching from bridge to neck.

Gonna have to get a multimeter and pin point this stuff out.

And i had some other issue. My bridge pup was installed backwards. The guitar was not 

Properly setup (no biggie there, i always check my intonation, action, etc..)

But seeing the bridge pup installed backwards kinda made m feel PISSED!

Anybody has some help or issues or whatever my email is

On the fifth day, the bridge pickup completely failed. When I opened the cover of the timbre block, I noticed that the individual contacts were poorly soldered. The contact from the neck-pickup on the volume potentiometer was held on two wires and broke off at the first touch. I never found the bridge sensor problem. Very disappointed.

I am disappointed to find that I have a similar problem...Spent over $1000, and now after just a few days, a pickup is failing. I have to return it or get it fixed, due to a manufactuing flaw.

i'm curios to know what differentiations is approximately between this guitar and the standard ec models that have a thinner, solid body? I have back problems and actually purchased this guitar online but had to return it for other reasons but weight wise it was great

Carl N.

It's about 10mm thinner, though if weight is a concern the weight between these instruments will generally be the same, but weight can vary from instrument to instrument so this might be something better for you to buy in person.
