I tried once one ec-1000 vb (with duncan magnets) and I loved it! I wanted EMG magnets - not i stock - so I ordered one last September from my local store here at Athens Greece.

The problem is that although 2021 is leaving , we still don't know when my guitar will be here...

I have played Gibson for a long time , also played Fender . Never really thought of ESP , a good friend of mine told me I should check them out , got a LTD ec1000, satin black . I can’t put it down , getting rid of my Gibson V and getting another LTD. won’t play anything else . These guitars just feel right , perfect weight and neck is so nice to play . I’m hooked .

Absolutely love this guitar. Had mine for over a year, and it’s still in beauty shape. Intonation, neck are all perfect. 

I have a question, what kind of nut would I use to replace this? I hear about Fender style and Gibson and LP style…. What style of nut am I looking for?

Too bad the gloss black with pearl inlays only comes with Active pickups. I think all ec1000s should be purchased with either duncans or EMGs. Would have a lot more buyers. Thats the only reason I havent purchased the gloss black, would have to change pickups $$$$$

  • Superb guitar.
  • The fit and finish is just perfect.
  • The Ebony fingerboard with the fat frets are a dream to play.
  • The EMG's growl like a stack of Marshalls.
  • The neck is superb handles and feels like a Stratocaster.
  • The Mahogany body is ergonomically sculptured for your body; in 70 years Gibson failed to figure that one out. Maybe that is why they went broke.
  • I have owned many Gibson Les Paul's over the years and I have slowly but surely sold them all because of guitars like this.
  • I am already thinking about buying another one.


I was trained as a physicist and Albert Einstein proved a very important theorem for guitar players the world over:

If the number of guitars you own is X, then what is the optimal number of guitars? Simple he said: + 1!
