EC-1001T CTM


EC-1001T CTM

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. The newly-updated EC-1001T/CTM is an incredible guitar that offers quality and features not found on instruments that cost much more. It starts with a traditional full-thickness body that is chambered for weight relief, using set-thru construction with a mahogany body and maple cap, 3-piece mahogany neck, and 22-fret Macassar ebony fingerboard, and multi-ply body/neck/headstock binding on body top and back. The EC-1000T/CTM includes a set of EMG 66TW/EMG 57TW pickups with brushed black chrome covers. These “TWIN” pickups are being offered for the first time on a production guitar, and allow users to split the active neck and bridge pickups with push-pull controls for each pickup on its respective volume knob. Available in Snow White and Silver Sunburst Satin finishes.

I love the specs on this guitar, but I am having a lot of trouble liking the finishes. I'd love to see an all black version or black natural burst option available. 

Carl N.

Thanks for the recommendations!

Hello fellas i need a full thickness and i'm wondering among this one or the new  e-ii black natural burst. What about the weight between this two models? The chambered is really light? And both comes with same pick ups? . It worth to pay the twice with the e-ii? Hope you can light me

Thank you

Carl N.

Hey Marco, should be about 8-8.5lbs but no two pieces of wood are the same so this can vary from instrument to instrument.

chris g.

the korean models from world music are better than the indonesian models from world music shecter is selling there iw guitars in the 7 to 9 hundred dollar range while esp is selling this one in the 1100 dollar range all my ltd from korea are great but when i got this one the volume knob was laying in the box and the pot was spining around in the body  there was several paint and binding blems and when i noticed the input jack was loose both screws on the jack going into the wood are striped there not up to the standards of the korean made at this price point

Hey Chris, thanks for your input.  It sounds like either an issue with the individual quality control this instrument went through or the care and maintenance this instrument did not receive after it left our facility.  If you need further assistance with this please reach out to our customer service team at


Just ordered this one last night. Hope it reaches me before Christmas.

Carl N.

Hey Fredlund, hope you get it by then too, though this is the busiest time for shippers, but best of luck!
