ESP build there guitars with one thing in mind. Rock. from tip to tail they are designed and built to be solid enough to give you a reliable performance night after night no matter how hard you lay into them.
Switch from Piezo - Magentic pickups.
The EC-1000 Piezo has both standard magnetic pickups as well as a completely separate piezo pickup system. You can switch between them with a simple toggle switch. These options allow you to move from accoustic style chords to bright and rich lead sounds. So many rock nad metal acts rely on that kind of flexibiltiy but it usually requires you to swithc betwen guitars mid song. this offers an alternative solution to that problem.
With duel output jacks you can also route your guitar to a wider range of amps and studio inputs. This is the sort of guitar which will quickly become the go to axe in your rig.
The EC Guitar Range
The EC series covers a wide range of models and shapes from the instantly recognizeable to the weird and wonderful. This single cut model has a very familiar feel and a stunning finish.
Here's what ESP have to say about this guitar
As one of the most innovative and versatile guitars in the LTD Deluxe Series, the EC-1000 PIEZO is our first model to include both standard magnetic pickups as well as a completely separate piezo pickup system. Piezo pickups create a very different sound from typical magnetic pickups, offering excellent articulate, acoustic-like tones. With the EC-1000 PIEZO, you can use the mini toggle switch to select between the standard pickup set -- the excellent Seymour Duncan ’59 and JB -- and a Fishman Powerbridge and Tailpiece, or even combine them both. This level of sonic flexibility continues to the guitar's dual output jacks, allowing you to route the pickups to different combinations of amplifiers or interfaces onstage for live performances or in the studio for recording sessions. The EC-1000 PIEZO offers a great-looking quilted maple top on its mahogany body, and is available in See Thru Blue and See Thru Black finishes
