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 takes the Xtone Series up to a whole new level, offering a high-performance solution in a semi-hollow bodied guitar that can be as great for metal as it is for pop, jazz, indie rock and much more. 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. Available in Blue Sparkle, Purple Sparkle, and Vintage Black finishes, as well as with a flamed maple top in Violet Shadow finish.

I completely love my PS Named it Forgiveness because My Wife & I agreed I would not buy any more guitars.

Then I Saw The Purple Sparkle XTONE -1000 . Man it plays nice & Nasty. Pickups sound great with Metal

and Clean Playing worship music(+/distorted for contemp.Christian). Played it as an Acoustic with a Korg

Ac.simulator and Ice Box chorus some lite flange/Delay & I Got Compliments on the sound and

look of the guitar from a respected Guitarist in the congregation.. Gr8 Axe :0/ Thanx ESP-LTD

My second Guitar from you..Q:.Can I Buy A Tombstone case to fit my XTONE-1000? ? ?

ordering one of these now! 

would love to get a baritone xtone - 27 inch scale maybe white with black hardware/trim or white with gold hardware.

Would also love if you guys brought back the solid body, and silver sparkle double cut - been looking for one but can't find one used :(. 

Hope you guys announce some stuff on this website even though NAMM is cancelled!

Hope you enjoy it when you get it, thanks for the recommendations

10 months later and it still hasn't arrive? \

If it ever does will it have stainless steel frets?

Can I really play any genre of metal and rock, reason why I'm asking is because I have somehow got interested in this one and I want to see how it does

Carl N.

You can play any genre of music with any guitar.


Trevor Peres has been playing death metal on stratocasters for near 40 years.


Right under my nose. Wondering if ESP/LTD has a guitar with P90's and here it is.

So tempting.
