Uncompromising Metal Tone that Never Goes Out of Tune

Get your hands ready for some full-on EMG-powered metal-induced tone -- with a smart bridge that keeps your notes eternally in tune. The ESP LTD EC-1000 EverTune electric guitar keeps your sound heavy, dark, and oozing with non-stop rock. A EMG 81/60 active humbucker configuration fuels your signal with walls of tone, a warm mahogany body cut in a slick "Eclipse" body shape adds resonation and visual flair to your performance, and a sturdy mahogany neck with an incredibly smooth rosewood fingerboard holds 24 frets with razor thin action. Best of all, this axe's innovative EverTune bridge holds your strings down securely and keeps your tuning in check under all circumstances.

Rich-Sounding Mahogany Body

Housing your EC-1000 EverTune's bridge and pickups is a warm, dark, and resounding mahogany body. Mahogany bodies will emphasize plenty of low and middle frequencies, fueling your signal with loads of depth and resonance. Your strings will also harness a lingering sustain that invites anticipation with every hold. This axe's sleek eclipse body shape has an attractive visual appeal, boasting a sharp cutaway gives you plenty of access to those higher frets.

Comfortable Mahogany Neck and Buttery Rosewood Fingerboard

Resting in your hand like a comfy glove is this baby's sturdy mahogany neck. This melodious appendage is cut into a super-snug thin U shape that's easy to wrap your hand around, and a smooth and buttery rosewood fingerboard boasts 24 extra jumbo frets with unbelievable action. Your fingers will love this neck the instant they experience its lightning-speed playability and all-around cozy feel.

EMG 81/60 Active Humbucker Combo

Taking in every aspect of your playing is this guitar's EMG 81 and EMG 60 active humbuckers. Your EMG 60 at the neck forges a thick sound full of body and presence and projects your signal out as a wall of tone eager to fly through your amplifier. Your EMG 81 at the bridge dishes out a brighter and edgier tone that slices through the air like a knife -- perfect for wailing solos and addicting syncopated rhythmic chugs. The 81/60 combo makes a perfect pair for soul-shattering metal or rock tone.

The Amazing All-Mechanical EverTune Bridge

The crowning jewel on your LTD EC-1000 EverTune is its reliable and secure EverTune bridge. You won't find another system that keeps your strings in check as well as this baby does.

Customer Reviews
5 out of 5 (1 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Blown away."
Sound: The EMG pickups provide amazing sound whether playing clean tones or distorted riffs. I play it through a Peavey Triple XXX head with a Mesa Boogie 4x12 cab with no effects and it sounds awesome. Feature: The best feature is, by far, the Evertune bridge. It works so well that I rarely have to tune now. It's like black magic. Ease of Use: The Evertune bridge takes a bit to get used to but, once you do, it's quite simple to use. Quality: This is a solid guitar. I've played quite a few shows with it and it still looks and sounds brand new. Overall: This is a phenomenal guitar and I highly recommend it.
Style of Music: Metal, Thrash, Hardcore, Pop-Punk
