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.
