Guitars in the LTD 1000 Series are designed to offer the tone, feel, looks, and quality that working professional musicians need in an instrument. The Arrow-1000FR is a special member of the Arrow family, with its quilted maple top in Charcoal Sunburst Satin finish. It features neck-thru-body construction with mahogany body, 3-piece maple neck, reverse headstock with matching flamed maple finish, and Macassar ebony fingerboard with triangular white pearloid inlays and stainless steel frets. The sound of the Arrow-1000FR comes from its set of direct-mount Fishman Fluence Modern Humbucker active pickups (alnico in the neck and ceramic in the bridge), with push-pull control to select voicings and black nickel covers to match this guitar’s outstanding aesthetics. These pickups offer an outstanding variety of huge tones that range from aggressive and punchy to smooth and articulate. Components include a Floyd Rose 1000SE bridge with stainless steel screws and precise Grover tuners.

Just received FOURTH Arrow-1000...hard to believe its been 14 months since I ordered it, but what's a few months between friends? This guitar is beautiful inside and out, plays amazing, and the Fishman pickups are a nice upgrade. My other three 1000's have EMGs, I'm not sure if I'm just playing a little different with my new toy or if the Fishman's are actually smoother and thicker. Since I play high gain metal, the differences are very slight but the Fishman's sound a little thicker with less nuisance high end (shrillness? scrapiness? harshness? LOL not sure what the right word is). Might have to install them in my other Arrows once I get a few practices and live shows to compare them. And the push/pull is a very welcome update, these Arrow 1000s are world class guitars! I hope to be added to their list of artists someday!
