esp ec1000

Anyone tried one or own one? Are these guitars good, because they seem kinda cheap to be a solid axe. What would generally be the best pick, the ones with the emg's or the flame-top with the Duncan 59's?

Re: esp ec1000

well i played one and it was top notch. I really couldnt find any defects with it. It played perfect and sounded just as sweet. By far the best Bang for Buck today (at least new guitars)

Although i didnt try the Duncan EC, i bet its smokes too. I perfer the EMG's but its up to you, eithor way your getting one sweet axe!

Re: esp ec1000

By the reviews I read people are saying that they are really sweet. They suppoesedly have thinner necks and lighter bodies than les pauls. They are also supposed to sound really good with emg's but a lot of people are swapping the neck pickup for an '85. I have not found any reviews for the flametop/duncan 59's model, which is the one I was considering in the first place. I just don't like quilt tops or gold hardware, but I do like emg's.

Too pricey..Try this version of that guitar.. I bet they are made in the same factory too. And for alot less cash. That leaves money left over for hardware and PU upgrades.

Too "pricey" for an instrument that comes with top of the line hardware and pickups (weather or not they are you specific brand of choice or not) i think they are a great deal for what they ask for them>

BTW I own a ec-1000 in stbc with the emgs and it is my main guitar.

That Kramer looks sweet too. But I think the ec-1000 is probably the better buy, it comes with emg's and killer hardware. And I think it's only like $100 more than that Kramer.

I have an ESP Eclipse Standard in black cherry, it's an awesome guitar, the LTDs are very similar, and considering the hardware that is standard, a great deal.
