I'm very intrigued about the EC-1000 CTM models. The specs are almost everything I could want in this price range. But I'm wondering if there are plans for a CTM with passive pickups? I realize that LTD offered the EC-1000 CTM DMZ a few years ago, and I've looked into buying one of those used, but they are difficult to come by. And I don't like the idea of pulling out active pickups to replace them with passives.
Hey Jean, be sure to subscribe to our newsletter to be first to see the new models we'll be releasing in 2020...perhaps you'll be pleasantly surprised.
I just received this snow white yesterday and I have to say it is one of the best necks I have played, maybe ever. I own PRS Custom 24, a couple Les Paul Custom shop, Fender Strat and Ibanez's, for the money, this can't be beat. The neck is superb, the body, thick and a little heavier than my Les Pauls but the sound is beefy as well. I have been using EMG pups since the very early 90's, first 81/85, then 81x/85x, then the 57/66 combo loaded into my main guitars, so I was very happy to see that the 57/66 combo are installed from the factory, but better yet, that it is the TW models for coil tap to single coil. I am very happy I bought this guitar. It is quickly becoming my favorite gig axe.
Hey Rob, glad you're enjoying your new LTD and thank you for leaving your feedback!!
Hello there i would like to know the weight of the guitar ,difference in weight with the non full thickness models ec1000 and if you recomend it for heavy sounds (as its champered) compare to the more solid ec1000
Hi Aris, each model can vary in weight so there is not a standard weight. It can be approximately 9.5lbs for the full thickness versions and approximately 8.5lbs for the standard thickness. The chambering in the full thickness models is done for weight relief. It is not intended to affect the sounds. Either version of our Eclipse body would be good for heavy sounds. However keep in mind the type of music or sounds you are going for - pickups will make a big difference as well.
Is there any place I can find the full length and body thickness of this guitar? I'm looking and planning which will be the case or gig bag and I want to make sure that will fit. Thanks
Hi Michael, The full thickness of the body is 60mm but that does not include the parts. The length of the body is 440mm. If you need any more info please email our customer service team at email@example.com . Hope that helps.
Thank you, Todd!!!
Is this a satin finish or gloss ?
Hi Khalid, this is a gloss finish.
