(U.S. Only)

Guitars in the LTD 1000 Series are designed to offer the tone, feel, looks and quality that working professional musicians require in an instrument. The PS-1000 marks the first 1000 Series offering for LTD’s exciting Xtone collection, high-performance semi-hollow guitars that sound and look equally great for metal as they do alternative rock, indie folk, or progressive. With the PS-1000, you get a set-thru 3-piece maple neck on a mahogany body, along with LTD locking tuners, a TonePros locking TOM bridge and tailpiece, and a set of overwound Seymour Duncan Phat Cat pickups, offering the midrange bite and unique attack of a P-90 single coil in a humbucker format. The PS-1000 is available in two versions: a flamed maple top in Violet Shadow Fade finish, or a solid top in outstanding Purple Sparkle finish.

Would love to see this will the normal chrome instead of the black chrome. I think it'd suit it better.

This is my fourth LTD guitar - and I love them all. Any chance of rereleasing Viper Bass? 

Carl N.

Glad you enjoy them Tae, no plans at the moment though the ESP version could always be ordered through your preferred ESP dealer.

I can’t wait for the flat black version! Having a unique guitar is so important to my band’s sound and aesthetic - and it has to be black. I’ve got to have one!

Thanks for the comment Aidy!

I still wonder when will they re-release the solid body versions

Todd B. ESP

HI Antonio, we have no current plans to release solid body versions. We did make some quite a few years ago, that was the only time we made them in solid body version.

Todd B. ESP

Hi Evan, No we do not. that one was discontinued some time ago.
