The LTD EC-1000 remains one of ESP’s most popular guitar series, offering the tone, feel, looks, and quality that working professional musicians need in an instrument, along with the pricing that serious musicians can afford. The newly-updated EC-1001T/CTM is an incredible guitar that offers quality and features not found on instruments that cost much more. It starts with a traditional full-thickness body that is chambered for weight relief, using set-thru construction with a mahogany body and maple cap, 3-piece mahogany neck, and 22-fret Macassar ebony fingerboard, and multi-ply body/neck/headstock binding on body top and back. The EC-1000T/CTM includes a set of EMG 66TW/EMG 57TW pickups with brushed black chrome covers. These “TWIN” pickups are being offered for the first time on a production guitar, and allow users to split the active neck and bridge pickups with push-pull controls for each pickup on its respective volume knob.
