Guitars in the LTD 1000 Series are designed to offer the tone, feel, looks and quality that working professional musicians require in an instrument, and the LTD EC-1000 has consistently ranked among the world’s most popular guitar models for the past 20+ years by delivering the high quality single-cutaway guitar shape designed for serious musicians at a price that everyone can afford. With the incredible Violet Andromeda finish, this EC-1000 model is simply mind blowing in the way it changes color between shades of purple, blue, and even greenish tints as it reflects light from various angles. A set-neck design for smooth access to the higher frets, it has a mahogany body and a three-piece mahogany neck. The EC-1000 Violet Andromeda features Fishman Fluence Modern Humbucker active pickups (Alnico in the neck position, Ceramic in the bridge), with a push-pull control to activate the second voicing. Premier components include LTD locking tuners and a TonePros locking TOM bridge and tailpiece.
