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 macassar ebony fingerboard. Available in Black finish.

I have had my EC-1000 for several years and I dig it more than any other guitars in my collection. I also LOVE the fact that I can pick it up after a year or more and it is STILL IN TUNE! I love that bridge! It just feels like MONEY!

Just bought it a year or a year and a half ago. Love it!

I also have an EC-401 but the 1000 sounds so different. Bit more dry and thicker in tone.

An awesome recording guitar! But I changed the hardware from gold to black, now it looks really stealthy

Great job guys!

Where is this model made, in korea or indonesia?

Todd B. ESP

We are currently manufacturing this model in both Korea and Indonesia. However, we constantly monitor production standards at our various factories in Asia where we produce LTD models. Should we determine that a certain facility is capable of manufacturing an instrument to ESP's required standard or better, we may decide to shift production, or in some cases share production of a model, wherever that factory may be located. The guitar should be of excellent quality regardless of where it's made, and it will have passed our own quality assurance testing.
