A Rock-Solid Axe with Air-Tearing Tone and Luxe Looks!

The ESP LTD EC-1000T CTM DMZ electric guitar forges a powerful output for your rocking pleasure. A pair of DiMarzio PAF 36th Anniversary humbucking pickups provide awesome PAF tone, and a dark-sounding mahogany body and mahogany set neck gives your signal plenty of body and sustain. This ESP's ebony fingerboard is as slick as glass, and 22 XJ frets harness a comfortable action that your fingers will love. A TonePros locking Tune-O-Matic bridge and tailpiece, along with this axe's LTD locking tuners, will keep your notes in tune for longer sessions of rocking.

Mahogany Body and Neck

Dark tone with loads of girth are what this axe is all about. Its striking carved-top mahogany body yields a strong emphasis on your lows and mids, which is great for a dark metal or rock sound. This body also features a visually enticing curved cutaway that allows your fingers to reach those higher frets when feel like shredding it up. Elegant binding around the body gives the EC-1000T a classy edge.

DiMarzio PAF 36th Anniversary Humbuckers

This ESP's body has the right set of pickups to go along with it. Your DiMarzio PAF 36th Anniversary humbuckers pack an awesome sonic punch to fire through your amplifier. When played clean, your signal is clear and evenly voiced across all frequencies. When you bring in the distortion, you get a solid crunchy PAF sound -- and when you really push the gain to the max, your axe will wail with unstoppable tonal force.

Keeping Your Intonation in Check

Anchoring your strings down is this baddie's TonePros locking Tune-O-Matic bridge and tailpiece. Your strings get a nice helping of sustain from this bridge and tailpiece design, no matter how soft or how aggressive of a picker you are. ESP LTD locking tuners help keep your axe in tune for longer sessions of rocking -- so play the CD-1000T as hard or soft as you like and get the most out of everything it has to offer.
