ESP LTD's Hard-Hitting, Sonic-Slicing Axe

Get your amp ready for the ESP LTD EC-1001FR electric guitar. This beauty will flood your ears with its full and dark-sounding mahogany body. An EMG Metalworks 81/60 pickup pairing forges a powerful output perfect for rock or metal. The mahogany neck features 24 XJ frets stretched over a rosewood fingerboard, and a Floyd Rose bridge with secure LTD tuners assures hours upon hours of string-bending action that'll leave your ears thirsty for more. This guitar's classic-looking Eclipse body shape looks great on any stage.

Flame Maple and Mahogany Body

Maple and mahogany are a great combination. The flame maple top on your ESP LTD EC-1001FR offers a cool stark look fitting for the aggressive player. Mahogany keeps things nice and heavy, pushing those low and middle frequencies, while maple will bring in a slight trebly push which can assist in producing a little feedback when you dial up your gain settings.

Two EMG Humbuckers

That EMG humbucker sound is tough to beat. Your output will sound like a solid wall of tonal force when you push this guitar hard. Whether you're going clean or dirty, both your EMG 60BBC humbucker at the neck and your EMG 81BBC at the bridge produce a stellar sound with plenty of articulation for any occasion a rock or metal enthusiast calls for.

Mahogany Neck in Thin U Shape

Mahogany necks are dependable tools for generating some lingering sustain. The Thin U shape has a great feel, especially if you're not a fan of thicker necks that can make speedy runs feel a little bulky. The rosewood fingerboard on this appendage is smooth as silk, and all 24 XJ frets harness a close action for your shredding delight. And of course, the Floyd Rose tremolo bridge allows for some awesome dive-bomb action and wailing licks.

zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "ESP EC-100 FR Review "
Overall: I have been a Strat guy for over 30 years and am the proud owner of many choice pieces of Strat style guitars always meaning to one day own a Les Paul type guitar. Most all of my guitars all have a Floyd Rose or floating tremolo of some type as well so I have been looking at the Gibson equipped Floyd Rose models like the Axcess which are quite pricey. After playing a few non tremolo ESP EC-100's I realized that they played and sounded as good if not better than most of the Les Paul's which I have played over the years some of which are now near priceless. I saw a blemished ESP EC-100 on zZounds for a great price with a factory guarantee / warranty and decided to try it. At first it felt a bit stiff to me and after I changed the strings it took some time to get the Floyd Rose tremolo adjusted, it was dead on. I would put this guitar head to head with any Les Paul as far as tone and play ability and can only imagine what it will sound like as it ages over the years the way all of my other guitars have. I have never been an EMG fan but these sound very good however I suspect my tastes would be more in line with the Seymour JB's which come on some of the non tremelo EC-100s. This is a beautiful guitar...everyone falls in love with it and it can do some real damage thru my Mesa Boogie MK IIc+ and sustains forever with extremely smooth action. The harmonics are chimey clean and over driven while the intonation is balanced all the way up and all the way down. This guitar was supposed to be "blemished" and no one has been able to figure out where the guitar was blemished. I would not hesitate to buy this guitar again for full price...if you are reading this review, neither should you.

1. zZounds offers the industry‘s most musician-friendly payment plans

zZounds offers a variety of Play as You Pay installment plans that allow you to get the gear you want today.
