Custom binding, EMG pickups and premium hardware make the ESP LTD EC-1000T / CTM electric guitar a faithfully traditional affair. This instrument will please those who like the playability of classic single cutaway guitars but with the advancement of active humbuckers and other features which are on-board.
The "T" in this model name means that this guitar is of "traditional" specification. This translates to 22 frets and a body that's thicker and therefore harbours more sustain and tonality from the tonewoods used to construct it. On that subject, the reshaped body is made from mahogany and further cements the traditional aspects of the ESP LTD EC-1000T CTM. Around the body you'll notice the luxurious custom binding, denoted in the model name with "CTM", meaning custom. These added features make for an electric guitar that shows great effort to create a model that sticks to certain features with good reason.
The neck of this guitar is made from mahogany and is strongly set into the body. With the ebony fingerboard working well against the finish of the ESP LTD EC-1000T CTM, you're practically guaranteed to look great on stage. The thin U shaped neck which ESP are known and praised for on a regular basis is still featured, so you get the advantages of two styles of construction here: the thin and fast neck with a thick and toneful body. ESP locking tuners and a Tonepros locking bridge ensure stable tuning and reliable performance alongside the already impressive feature set.
When looking for a pair of active humbucker to use for the ESP LTD EC-1000T CTM, they chose the reliable and surprisingly versatile EMG 81 and EMG 60 pairing. This popular choice will please lovers of overdrive and distortion as both the bridge and neck humbucker translate these tones well.
