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 VB is consistently one of the most popular guitars due to its combination of incredible looks and great performance. It offers a vintage looking body/neck/headstock binding and gold hardware, and includes 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 Vintage Black finish.

An absolute Stunner in the EC1000 Range,ebony fingerboard,beautiful vintage Satin finish and plays like Buttah! I love all my ECs and this one just bonded with me instantly, l just play it so much! The EMG 81/60 set is so sweet,especially the 60,it's pure Thin Lizzy,Gary Moore,hard Rock,Classic tones and aesthetics. If you are like me,trying to complete your EC Collection( i'm on 6) then this Axe should be the EC Cornerstone to start with. It's an incredible Guitar,with a beautiful, ergonomic shape and award winning design, an Amazing guitar.

Hey, i have a few questions.

1) does it have a maple top?

2) what is the scale length?

3) does it have weight relief? Chambered?

Carl N.

Typically we will list this information within the description and specification if it applies but this instrument will not have a maple top or be chambered.  Scale length is 24.75" hope this helps

Through some of my own investigation and via what Customer Service has said:

50mm bridge pole spacing

1/4” leg length


50mm came straight from customer service, and is standard across tuneomatic bridges. 1/4” leg length came from a pickup swap video I found on YouTube, where you can see the leg when the guy removes the pickup.

Does the battery die if you leave it plugged or does it have a kill switch?

Carl N.

inserting an instrument cable into the jack completes the circuit and activates the pickups, leaving this plugged in will drain your battery


Hi, does any one knows if this model is made in Korea or Indonesia?

Carl N.

This will be made in both Korea and Indonesia
