The ESP LTD EC-1001T is a striking take on the classic single cut, boasting ultra modern high performance playability. It perfectly balances pro level specs and everyday musician accessibility in one enticing package.
This is quintessential ESP style. The EC-1000 is a sleek mean machine, featuring a burst finish maple cap on a mahogany body; a tried and tested choice for single cut guitars. Seamlessly set through is a matching mahogany neck in ESP's comfortable thin “U” shape.
The 24.75 inch ebony fretboard makes it incredibly easy to jump between the 22 extra jumbo frets and adds to the aggressive tone of the guitar.
In the hardware department, the EC-1001T is kitted out with an ever-reliable Tonepros locking bridge, paired up with indispensable set of LTD locking tuners. These are sure to keep the guitar in shape through any heavy playing session.
ESP have a long-running relationship with EMG pickups. They've been a staple in the range for years and it's no different in the EC-1001T, which houses an EMG 57TW in the bridge and 66TW in the neck.
What makes this pair particularly special is the option to split the coils in both pickups for single coil and humbucker tones. The 57/66 set uses a combination of alnico and steel, making setting selection sound seamless and natural. They're both extremely versatile for active pickups across clean tones and crushing gain.
