With a Floyd Rose bridge and EMG pickups this guitar rocks like no other.

The LTD EC-I000 FR guitar has a mahogany body with a select maple top and a rosewood fretboard. The thin U-shaped mahognay neck with 24 extra jumbo frets provides comfort and speed. EMG 81/60 active pickups provide plenty of power and note definition. Controls include 2 volumes, one tone and a 3-way selector switch. The Floyd Rose bridge is unique to this member of the EC-1000 models and is rarely found in guitars with a 24-3/4" scale length. Black nickel hardware and abalone inlays finish off a great look.

    Comments about ESP LTD Deluxe EC-1000 FR Electric Guitar:

    My original pick was the Epiphone Prophecy, but after two attempts (1st had a notched frets, 2nd had a broken neck), I decided to try the ESP EC-1000 FR. The cost was quite a bit higher, but the build quality of this guitar was so far above the Prophecy, I consider the difference in price a bargain. The most notable difference was the quality of the frets. The Prophecy had gritty-feeling frets, while the EC-1000 frets are polished to the point of feeling like glass, very nice. The EC-1000 neck looks and feels quite a bit more expensive than the Prophecy as well. Sound-wise, both were comparable with EMG 81/85's in the Prophecy and EMG 81/60's in the EC-1000. The EMG 60 has a cleaner, full-body tone when compared with the EMG 85, which I like. The Floyd Rose adds a nice touch to the LP style and the strings stay in tune nicely.

    The only aspect of the EC-1000 that I wasn't happy with was the setup. Out of the box, the action was unbelievably low, and this caused quite a bit of string buzz. Some consider some buzz normal on this type of instrument, but I thought it was a bit excessive. On closer inspection, the neck had no bow (it should have a little) and the string height was below recommended specs (0.2mm bass-side and 0.15mm treble). I found the setup on this guitar to quite a bit more finicky than my old ESP KH series, but after an hour or so of tweaking, I was able to fix the issue.

    If you're in the market for a mid-level, LP-style guitar, spend the extra cash and go for this guy, you won't be disappointed.

    Comments about ESP LTD Deluxe EC-1000 FR Electric Guitar:

    This guitar is packed with features that are found in guitars 2 to 3 times the price. I play classic rock, and this guitar does it flawlessly. This guitar is a little on the heavy side, so get a comfortable strap. All in all this is a great guitar, if you have the coin and looking for a great rock guitar,grab you one of these, you wont be let down. I bought the see thru black one, but both are really sweet.

    unique guitar.

    By gothic13

    from western new york

    Comments about ESP LTD Deluxe EC-1000 FR Electric Guitar:

    very nice lp style with floyd. solid construction, good tone. take my advice and block the floyd so you can't pull up and the guitar stays in tune better. Also added the evh dtuna, very cool. pickups are added bonus cause I add emgs to all my guitars. only complaint is it should come with a case for the price.

    exceptional guitar for the money

    By Riffsalot

    from Ded Midwest

    Comments about ESP LTD Deluxe EC-1000 FR Electric Guitar:

    I purchased this guitar four mos. ago, I ordered it on a sunday it arrived TUESDAY!!So much for GREAT SHIPPING!! it arrived well packed and intact, (really wish the case was included) As a proffessional guitarist for the last 30 yrs. I have made it a policy NOT to buya guitar without a case but I made an exception for this guitar because it had ALL the features I was looking for as a Metal VET!, First off I set the guitar up for an e-flat tuning and restrung it with 009,s then I plugged it in and the OOMPH I was expecting from the EMG's was nowhere so I immediadtely checked the battery and it was almost DEAD I popped in a new one and WOW instantly transformed to a Punchy crunchy tight beast!! great neck, very light, floyd was alittle stiff but overall an EXCEPTIONAL GUITAR for the price, Very satisfied customer.

    I'm In Love

    By Anonymous

    from Undisclosed

    Comments about ESP LTD Deluxe EC-1000 FR Electric Guitar:

    This guitar is a joy to play I got this thing 2 months ago and I am absolutely addicted to its sound and playability. the neck is so fast and smooth and it holds a tune better than any guitar I have ever seen in my life. This thing will NEVER go out of tune on you and for me that is major. I cant stand having to constantly split hairs trying to tune some other guitars. I love the feel of the finish, the weight, it is very comfortable to hold due the contour of the body. I looked at a ton of other guitars for weeks and weeks on end and stayed up late deliberating over what would be the best purchase to make because my money is tight and I have never second guessed my choice to buy this thing. It makes everything you play sound so clear and tight and there is no fret noise whatsoever, every note rings out clear and true. I can't say enough good about this guitar.

    One of the Best guitars in this price range.

    By GnRLies

    from Los Angeles, CA

    Comments about ESP LTD Deluxe EC-1000 FR Electric Guitar:

    I've played guitar for 13 years, and I have owned many different guitars. This guitar is by far my favorite (better than Gibson Studio, Jackson DK, Fender Strat). The action is perfect (of course with a few adjustments), and the sound is superb (EMG's baby!). Plus, it never goes out of tune (locking tuners + FR tremelo). The build quality is about par with Fender/Jackson, which means it is much better than Gibson Studios. Looks gorgeous, especially compared to the overpriced Gibson Studio. My only complaints is no case is included, can't leave plug in guitar cuz it will drain the pickup battery, and FR takes 3 times as long to string. I don't understand why so many people buy Gibson Studios when there are so many other cheaper guitars that are much better in every way like this one or an American Strat. If you can't afford a Gibson Standard, you shouldn't buy a Gibson at all.

    Just got my ESP EC-1000 today! Top quality people! The emgs really bring this gweeter to life! Very very outstanding when playing clean, and brutal when distorted! I was surprised how light it was, and how perfect the look was! No scratches what so ever! I would have paid more for this guitar! Get one and enjoy the best playing experience of your life!!

    wicked axe

    By vmx70

    from colorado

    Comments about ESP LTD Deluxe EC-1000 FR Electric Guitar:

    this guitar is truly a thing of beauty.The sound that comes out of this axe is savage. I'm so in love with this guitar, it turns a average player into a better player with sustain from the emgs. This is the second guitar i bought from musicians friend and it came quick and packaged in factory esp box. This has to be one of the best online stores around.Now just need to buy a case.

    i would take this guitar to prom...

    By boogie king

    from a flyover state

    Comments about ESP LTD Deluxe EC-1000 FR Electric Guitar:

    came out of the box with a tiny ding in the finish on the back of the kneck...but i can live with it. the factory set up was TERRIBLE! really really bad man. BAD. intonation specifically. off at the 12th, way off at the 14-16th frets, and flat out unusable at the 22-24th. got a hold of ESP/LTD via phone and talked to a REALLY nice helpfull tech, and found out the guy that set up MY guitar had been sacked for sucking at setups... SOOOOO, $50 later (price for a complete set up) this is my new favorite guitar. what a mean machine. fast fast fast. and stable and well intonated. wow. and LIGHT! my gibson les paul XR-1 weighs a TON. this thing is a feather. and the looks... well you will want to crash your local prom and take your new "girl" with you because this is one hot babe. active pickups are great on clean and dirty. if your amp doesnt sound good with this guitar its time for a new amp. my MesaBoogie Roadster combo loves this guitar and thanks me every day for buying it! oh, and in case your wondering musicians friend offered to pay shiping and take it back at NO cost to me cuz of the ding/setup issues. not gonna happen. this one is mine. go get your own.

    Comments about ESP LTD Deluxe EC-1000 FR Electric Guitar:

    I've been playing seriously for a very long time and I have to say this guitar blows others out of the water.( not just in this price range)The floyd is fantastic, and stays in tune perfectly. The finish is gorgeous, and the playablity is perfect.This guitar outplays my Gibsons by a long shot.ignore the writing on the headstock and buy this.You will not regret it.Pictures don't do this guitar justice.
