LTD Deluxe guitars 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. The TE-1000 EverTune Koa looks fantastic with its mahogany body topped with Hawaiian koa in a Natural Gloss finish. Its EverTune constant tension bridge ensures that under almost any conditions, your guitar will stay in perfect tune, and have incredibly accurate intonation at every point on the fingerboard. This guitar offers set-thru construction at 25.5” scale, with a three-piece maple neck with Macassar ebony fingerboard and 24 extra-jumbo stainless steel frets. The TE-1000 EverTune Koa has excellent sonic variety with its set of EMG 66TW (neck, splittable by push-pull control) and EMG 57 (bridge) active pickups.

Are any of these available in 7 string? 

Todd B. ESP

Hi John, Sorry these models are not available in 7 string at this time. The closest thing would be our E-II models: https://www.espguitars.com/products?categories=te-series-guitars and our LTD Stef models: https://www.espguitars.com/products?categories=stephen-carpenter

Hey folks. Would you like some extra frets you can't reach? 

Albert C.

It looks fantastic. It also has 24 stainless steel frets. It's almost what I have been looking to find, except for the active pickups. That is a deal breaker for me. Why can we not have the option of choice of pickup in the guitars? Why would they put active pickups in a guitar with a natural finish as if it were a guitar for metal? I love metal, but this guitar inspires me to play classic rock, not metal. Also, why can't we have the choice of a fixed bridge or tremolo? I haven't tried the EverTune bridge, but the choice to get a Hipshot would be nice. Some may prefer to get a tremolo, which I wouldn't want but others might.

Albert C. I am with you all the way with your critique.I am a passive pickup guy.Also, not having a whammy bar is disappointing.


Have you ever tried the 57/66 set? They are very different from the 81/85 set most people are used to. They are easily among the best and most versatile pickups I have ever used, for any style of music, and pair well with every amp I own. They have great dynamics, a fairly balanced EQ, and respond extremely well to rolling the volume back too.

This just in, metal guitarists aren't allowed to play guitars that look pretty
