I don't know if it's just me or something else, but this Indonesian made EC-1000 is just a mess. I'm dissapointed. I understand that, it's cheaper to make it in Indonesia, than Korea, but ffs, it's a series 1000, not a 256, or 50, etc. This is not a cheap instrument(at least in my country), so please, be mindful with the quality. Thanks!

I must say this is my first guitar ever owned . I purchased it direct from ESP Todd B, and Tim J are great people and this company is the real deal . I’ve had so many compliments on this guitar and the sound . I originally wanted a Gibson Les Paul Custom all black ebony fretboard , mahogany body , mahogany neck. This is JUST AS GOOD , I changed the nut to a Bone nut it sounds so amazing !! I’m glad I made this investment !! Thank YOU ESP !!! 

Todd B. ESP

Hey Mister R,  Glad we could help you and thank you for the compliments. We completely thrilled that you are so happy with your new guitar! Thank YOU!

So sad you don't build this wonderful vintage black guitar with black hardware. Gold is a bit too flashy to me, and black would be just perfect. Aside from that, this guitar looks amazing and it is definitely on my list. 

Todd B. ESP

Hi Alex, Yes sorry to say but we don't offer this exact color option with black hardware, but thanks for your suggestion. It's possible we could offer something along these lines in the future.
