Think you'll never own a finely tuned shred machine? Think again. The ESP LTD EC1000 Deluxe is a lean, mean, speed machine, with the tone and feel of a custom-shop thrasher, but at a price that will have you rubbing your eyes in disbelief.

For the simple strumming and quaint melodic lines of old-time rock'n'roll, the basic guitar designs of yesteryear are good enough -- but if you want to shred with speed and accuracy, you'd better make sure your axe is up to the challenge. You'd better be sure it won't go out of tune easily, has screaming tone, and plays faster than a speed demon on ice skates. The ESP LTD EC1000 Deluxe meets all those criteria -- and looks darn good doing it.

Impeccable Action
The first thing you'll notice when you pick up your new EC1000 is the impeccable action. Your strings can only go as low as your highest fret, so ESP takes great care in seating the frets, making sure there are no speed bumps on the riffage expressway. The neck profile is awesome too; not so chunky that it'll slow you down, but still substantial enough that switching between single-note arpeggios and meaty power chords feels natural and comfortable.

Serious Sustain
The set neck joint is solid, but won't get in the way of upper register soloing, even when you're wailing on the 24th fret. A Tonepros locking bridge with stop tailpiece has individually tunable saddles, as well as an adjustable overall height, so you'll be able to dial in the exact action that suits your playing style. The stable neck joint, Tonepros bridge, and mahogany body construction all contribute to this guitar's awesome sustain and sound, which is given electrified voice by a set of active EMG 81 humbuckers.

EMG Pickups on Select Finishes
While the EMG 81s are capable of a wide array of styles, they excel at high-gain, modern heavy metal. The increased output of the EMGs can push an amplifier's input gain into the red for scorching tone you've never heard before, while the active circuitry keeps everything whisper quiet when you're not playing. Get ready for tone that's dramatic, epic, and totally metal.

Stunning Looks
If you're playing metal, ESP knows you're not looking to fit in, and the LTD EC1000 guitars sport a look that's sure to catch any audience's eye. The guitar's body design is both classic and forward-thinking, with a single-cut profile, beveled carved top, and full neck and body binding.

Features
- EMG 81/60 pickups, or Seymour Duncan 59 and JB pickups, depending on finish
- Set-neck design
- Mahogany body and neck
- Pau Ferro or ebony fingerboard, depending on finish
- ESP TonePros System II locking bridge
- 24 extra jumbo frets

For high-speed, high-gain, heavy metal guitar, you can't go wrong with an ESP LTD EC1000 Deluxe. As fast and as loud as you want to go, the EC1000 will keep pace, and it'll make you play, sound, and look 100% metal.
