ESP LTD H1001FR – Floyd Rose

The H-1001FR, available in See-Through Black Cherry over quilted maple, includes a Floyd Rose double-locking tremolo. The thin U-shaped neck with 24 extra jumbo frets provides comfort and speed. An EMG 81 pickup at the bridge and an 85 at the neck provide plenty of power and note definition. Grover tuners and a string-thru-body bridge keep you tuned and intonated, so you’ll sound your best. Volume, tone and a 3-way toggle give you options with simplicity. Black hardware, offset abalone block inlays and white with abalone purfling finish off a great look. [Click here for more info!]

ESP LTD EC1000 Deluxe Series Electric Guitar

ESP LTD EC1000 Deluxe Series Electric Guitar
EMG 81 or Duncan JB/59 pickup sets. Set-neck.
The EC1000 features EMG 81 pickups (or Seymour Duncan JB/59 Zebra), set-neck design, Mahogany body and neck, a Rosewood fingerboard, ESP’s excellent TonePros System II locking bridge, and 24 extra jumbo frets.

Feature:
The features and pretty simple but they’re some of the best quality you can get. Sperzel lockin’ tuners Tonepro’s bridge are great, makes string changing breeze. You love the tone pros bridge. 2 vol. knobs 1 tone. gives plenty of different sounds. Dual Humbucker set up. The ability to control the sound of each pickup individually is the most important feature that this guitar possesses. It allows you to pinpoint the exact sound and tone that you want out of the guitar. More features!

Quality:
This guitar came to be almost perfect. Everything was great expected the G string was too short so 30 minutes into playing it, the string liked shot out of it. It didn’t snap it just like shot out of the tailpiece. I tried putting it back in but it was too short.

Sound:
The EMG’s really making this thing sing! About this can not say enough good things about this axe. If you play rock, your search is over.

Value:
This guitar is worth it looks better than a Gibson sounds better easier to use. This price is just outrage sly inexpensive. Check latest price!

Ease of Use:
Not much to say here, it’s pretty much as simple as this: pick it up, adjust the volume, and play.

Desirability:
Mine’s see-through-cherry, and very stunning. At first I hated the Abalone, but in time I’ve really started liking it on this guitar. Normally I’d say it made it look gaudy, but I dig the prisim effect the Abalone gives off in certain light.

Overall:
One of the best investments ever you made. You wouldn’t give this guitar a perfect score if you didn’t mean it. This guitar is one of ESP’s finest, rights up there with the Eclipse. Great looks, deadly tone, and a reasonable price, you can’t go wrong.
