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.

Are there any future plans to make this guitar with passive pickups and coil splitting?  I absolutely love the black cherry color and the abalone inlays, but I already have a JH-600 with EMGs so I'm looking for something with passives for my next guitar.  Thanks for making such awesome instruments!

No plans at the moment


This is absolutely gorgeous.

Unfortunately, this particular colour is not available here in India ☹️

You could always reach out to your local ESP distributor for obtaining one in your region.

This is absolutely my next purchase.  I have the LTD KH-602 and it is off the charts quality and sound.  I just have to convince my wife I need another guitar.  Due to a recent promotion at work, I just may get it.  It will be worth getting yelled at for a few days.

Hope you enjoy it!

Hope you enjoy it when you get one!

Where is the blue burst with the abalone detail? Those were the most beautiful guitars I had ever seen. I've only seen $$$ "Pro" models look as nice. Bring it back!

Carl N.

Thanks for your recommendations Larry!
