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!

Thanks for your recommendations Larry!


Where are these made? Thanks

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.

Hello esp apakah ini original or fake thanks

Any chance we could get an EC-1000 in Black Camo similar to the WA-600 that Willie Adler had?

Todd B. ESP

Hi Brian, thanks for your question and suggestion. That was a cool model! I'm not sure we'll see that as a regular model but it's certainly possible.

Pull some strings make it happen! I got a fever and the only prescription is an EC-1000 in black camo. You can do it

Hi Brian, Ha ha! Thanks.


Do any of the EC-1000's have a maple cap or are they all veneers?  Thanks!

Todd B. ESP

Hi manchot66, The regular EC models do not have thick maple cap. However, the Full Thickness body versions do have a maple cap over a mahogany body.
