Guitars in the LTD EC-1000 Series are designed to offer the tone, feel, looks, and quality that working professional musicians need in an instrument, along with the pricing that typical musicians can still afford. The EC-1000 (BLK) has all of the classy LTD Deluxe features that set it apart from other guitars in its range, such as abalone inlays and purfling, full body/neck/headstock binding, and premier components like LTD locking tuners, a Tonepros locking TOM bridge and tailpiece, and the aggressive punch of active EMG 81/60 pickups. It also offers set-thru construction with a mahogany body, 3 pc. mahogany neck, and 24-fret pau ferro fingerboard. Available in Black finish.

Hi. I bought this model in 2008 (there's a EC-1000 inlay at the 12th fret) and I absolutely love it. I played it so much that now the frets have worn out and it's time for me to change them. I want to know if they cut the tangs on the frets in 2008 so that the frets are not embedded in the neck binding? (there's a 5ply abalone binding on the neck)

Carl N.

All necks with binding would have the tangs cut back, this isn't specific to any one model or brand, this is standard for musical instruments with bound necks.  I'd recommend taking this to a professional to have the worked performed, this would help to avoid any unwanted damage to your instrument.

What are the frets made of? I don't see it listed in the specs. 

Carl N.

Unless specifically noted otherwise all fretwire will be nickel/silver
