EC-1001T CTM


EC-1001T CTM
(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. 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.

Really like this guitar so much and I’m so interested.

I got the old version of this guitar, which is the EC1000T-CTM and another full thickness LTD which is the EC401-VF. Both models are 2012, the 1000 does not have a maple cap at all as it is not mentioned in the catalog. But the 401 indicates it’s got a maple top.

Regarding the 401, is it a veneer layer over a plain maple cap or just the thin veneer layer, thanks.

Carl N.

those will use a veneer

Hi,I'm looking for this same snow white model but with a peg and some gold edges, I can't find it, is it still being manufactured? Thank you

Carl N.

Not sure what specific model you mean, our older instruments can be viewed via our product archive.  All currently produced models will be up within our guitars section.

So beautiful! I bet it sounds fabulous. Jamie from One Machine and I chatted about these at NAMM 2019. He KNOWS I want it haha. I woulda picked it up already but theres no belly recess on the back... I know these are mass produced overseas but it would be a blast to see these just a smidge more ergonomic. Cheers
