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-1000QM offers the sumptuous look of a quilted maple top along with 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 See Thru Black Cherry finish.

Is this model built in Korea and/or Indonesia please ?

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.

After almost 3 months on backorder, I received this guitar on 11/28/20.  Finish, quality and craftsmanship is off the chart.  The action is right on the fret board and a dream to play.  It was absolutely worth the wait.  Now my only decision is to either grab this wicked EC1000 instrument, or the KH-602.  You guys did not disappoint.  The finish and playability is top notch.  Thank you for the attention to detail.

Just scored one of these beauties from my local guitar shop. Any advice on how to find out what year it is? The truss rod cover doesn’t say ec-1000 like the one in this photo, does that mean something or was it just replaced?
