EC-1000T CTM
(U.S. Only)
NOTE: Due to ongoing challenges in the global supply chain, instruments purchased from ShopESP that are not currently in stock may take an extended time frame to be delivered.

Guitars in the LTD Deluxe EC-1000 Series are designed to offer the tone, feel, looks, and quality that working professional musicians require in an instrument, while remaining affordable enough for serious players. With the EC-1000T CTM, the “T” stands for “traditional”, referring to this model’s full-thickness body that’s chambered for weight relief, with no waist-cut like the typical EC-1000 model. It also features multi-ply body/headstock binding on body top and back. This guitar offers a mahogany body with maple cap, and set-thru construction at 24.75” scale. The sound of the EC-1000T CTM is powered by a set of Fishman Fluence Open Core Classic Humbucker pickups with push-pull controls to select between three different voicings, offering the tone and response of both active and passive pickup varieties (voice 1 & 2) as well as single-coil varieties (Voice 3). Other features include a TonePros locking bridge and tailpiece, and a Macassar ebony fingerboard with 22 extra-jumbo stainless steel frets.

Hello, thank you. Glad you like it!


Hi PDP, where was yours made? 

Axel G.

May i ask what the weight of this guitar is?

Todd B. ESP

Hi, please understand that weight can vary from guitar to guitar so we do not list it as a specification. However an approximate weight for this guitar would be around 10.5lbs. Keep in mind it could be slightly higher or lower.

Can I get this with the EMG pickups? If so.....SOLD!!!

Nathan M.

This is already routed for battery active pickups, so a swap to EMGs would be effortless. These Fishman pickups cost more than EMGs too, so you could probably resell them for a slight profit. 

Todd B. ESP

Hi, sorry we aren't able to change the pickups, they come stock as you see them listed on the site. Nathan is right, you could swap them out on your own as many players do. We try to provide a variety of choices for guitars and pickups but we aren't able to offer every different option.
