EC-1000T

HONEY BURST SATIN

$999.00

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.

How does this guitar do in a high gain scenario? I think this guitar is super cool and very versatile but the video above doesn't address how the pickups do when playing metal. 

Todd B. ESP

Hi David, All the Fluence pickups are very quiet. That's one thing I continue to hear from everyone who tries them. This particular pickup set is more geared towards classic rock, not heavy metal, however I'm sure that an overwound classic pickup can be tweaked for heavier music. This guitar should do fine if put through a high gain amp it just won't have that razor sharp edgy tone like an EMG or Fluence Modern. It will be warmer and fuller sounding.
