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. Available in Snow White finish, the EC-1000T/CTM delivers the complete look and feel of a traditional thick-bodied, single-cutaway rock guitar. It offers set-neck construction with a mahogany body, 3 pc. mahogany neck, and 22-fret ebony fingerboard, multi-ply body/neck/headstock binding on body top and back, and includes LTD locking tuners, a Tonepros locking TOM bridge and tailpiece, and the great 1-2 aggressive punch of active EMG 81/60 pickups.

I love LTD Guitars! I have a EC-1000T/CTM DMZ (BLACK) FULL THICKNESS, i buy it on Korea with my korean manager. and i think this is not inspected officially in america because the back of the guitar doesn't come a sticker. I don't know if mine has a same quality with the others have stickers at the back or just crafted in korea and sell it.

But this guitar is a Beast and while i'm playing this guitar i feel the tone in it, the solid body is great and i love how heavy this guitar. I Love my LTD shes always resting inside the case if I'm not using it.

Hope someone can tell if this LTD's of mine is a Good or bad

I buy it with my manager schoolmusic, heres the website of the store and its so many brands that can supply this store including those mainstream line products.


Thank you!........... Cheers!

Hi Ridley09, Glad you like this guitar! If you are buying from School Music then your guitar is genuine (good). We inspect all the guitars that come to USA here at our facility but every country who has a distributor for our products has to inspect their goods the same as we do. So please do not worry and continue to enjoy your instrument!

Hi Marcelo, Thanks for your suggestion!


is it only this model and the bk-600 that have full thickness ? 

Todd B. ESP

Hi Sebastien, Sorry......Yes those are the main 2. We used to make an EC-1000T in a few colors a few years ago, but since discontinued. The Alex Skolnick models also have thicker bodies. AS-1FM and AS-1FR. Those are the only ones. If you want to look at ESP USA models, our USA Eclipse has a thick body with chambering for weight relief.....pretty cool.

It would be awesome if this was still available in black and gold with the maple fretboard.

I wish you guys at esp ltd would make the 1000 t/ ctm full thickness with new access joint and bring back passive Seymour Duncan pickups or the dimarzio 36 anniversary pickups or at least the Fishman fluence modern pickups and provide more color choices these were the best ltd eclipse guitars ever made hands down.

Hi Gerald, Thanks for the suggestions and compliments. We made the EC-1000T / CTM models with Dimarzios for a limited time. Maybe we can come up with some different versions in the future.
