Victor Kovalchuk gets Josh Middleton Tones on LTD Deluxe EC-1000 VB

ESP ALL ACCESS COMMUNITY MEMBER SPOTLIGHT! Today's spotlight shines on Victor Kovalchuk, an All Access member we've featured before due to his excellent playing and tones. Victor did this video to show off a software tone pack created by ESP artist Josh Middleton of Architects and Sylosis, but we'd like to talk about one of the most popular and best-selling ESP models of all time, the LTD Deluxe EC-1000 Vintage Black. It's available in two versions; the one Victor is playing here, with a set of active EMG 60 (neck) and EMG 81 (bridge) pickups, or in a passive pickup version with the EC-1000 Vintage Black Duncan, which includes a set of Seymour Duncan '59 (neck) and JB (bridge) pickups. Both guitars offer set-thru construction for smooth access to the highest frets, a classic mahogany body and mahogany neck with vintage-looking cream body/neck/headstock binding, and great components like LTD locking tuners and a Tonepros locking TOM bridge and tailpiece. Which one is better? Answer: the one you like the most for your tones and your playing style! You can check out the music of Victor's band Strike Each Other on their Bandcamp page.

If you're doing cool music with your ESP, ESP E-II, or LTD guitar or bass, upload a video to the ESP site and we might select you as the next ESP All Access Community Member to feature on our front page where thousands of other players can check you out! Get the details here.
