What does the T & CTM stand for?
Hey Anthony, Traditional and Custom, hope this helps!
I bought this guitar recently and I am so far very pleased with how it plays and how it sounds, but one thing I could not find anywhere is if the frets are nickel or stainless steel. It certainly isn't a deal breaker for me, but it would be nice to know. Thanks in advance!
Hey Markus, glad you're enjoying it. The frets will be a nickel/silver alloy unless otherwise stated. Hope this help!
What's the best way to clean the pick up covers?
Hey Ron, you could use the same polishing cloth that you use to clean your guitar!
What about some kind of spray cleaner product?
Hey Ron, liquid cleaners wouldn't really be necessary.
It´s sad that how all of your EC guitars are priced ralatively well even with nice quilt or flamed tops you price this guitar in plain white more than any other guitars, I don´t understand, this single colour should be relatively cheap, I agree with the full thickness of the body but how much of wood you add that in the final it costs that much more, adding binding and 57/66 instead of 81/85? These pickups should cost same, and why the laquer? I think that I was asking to make this same as the E-II which is in satin finish. Don´t you make this in Indonesia instead of Korea? Btw I´ve had a lot of Indonesian or Korean made guitars and I could not see much difference plus I think that Indonesia is putting their efforts to maximum. I would really love to own an LTD guitar but you do spec the guitars not the way I would like. Also I want to suggest if you will ever make M or MH model in colour that you do for ESP USA, like orange marble, fire rust metallic or solar flare, these colours are really nice, also I miss the tear drop headstock you were making on Horizons and TOM bridge and tail pice bridges and block inlays as you do on ESP USA models. I really wish to se what you come with for 2020
Hey Lukáš, the full thickness body along with the maple top do affect the cost of this instrument. Also the EMG pickups within this are more expensive than other sets on the market. Hope this helps and thanks for your suggestions!
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.
