Seymour Duncan JB & 59 Humbuckers
The set of Seymour Duncan pickups provide the ESP EC-1000FM with strong tones and plenty of dynamics to accommodate even the harshest playing styles. In the bridge position is the Seymour Duncan JB, a truly modern classic pickup known for its hot-rodded design which makes it ideal for any music genre. Its hot output pushes amps for extra sustain and harmonics, creating a tone saturated in full, powerful lows, crisp, detailed highs, and an upper mid bump which adds crunch and chunk to heavy chords.
The neck position sports the Seymour Duncan 59, a vintage-voiced humbucker designed to offer versatile tones and a sweet sustain. Selecting this pickup will provide the guitar with full lows, boosted highs, and a smooth, open midrange to deliver full sounding chords and a clear, bright attack.
Mahogany Body & Flame Maple Top
Mahogany is a fairly dense tonewood which creates a warm and rich tone with excellent depth. It also offers durability and a tone which will mature over the years, for a long lasting investment. A flame maple top gives this guitar a stunning and unique 3-dimensional appearance, as well as extending the tonal range of the mahogany. In addition, the EC Series body shape also features a single cutaway, which allows easier access to the higher frets and more flexibility across the whole fingerboard.
Mahogany Neck & Pau Ferro Fingerboard
The ESP EC-1000FM's neck is made from mahogany, which is sturdy, and it offers a rich sound with plenty of warmth. The neck is topped with a pau ferro fingerboard that yields snappier and brighter tonal characteristics. Featuring a set neck that is easy to play due to it's thin U-shaped contour, this allows for the fast playing style that ESP guitars are celebrated for.
ESP LTD Series
ESP designed their LTD guitar line to be accessible to all musicians who want their dream guitar at an affordable price. Originally created as professional gigging instruments available off the shelf, they have grown in popularity since the late 90's and the model range has expanded to include nine models, like this critically acclaimed 1000FM Series guitar. The Ltd line also includes signature models from some of the world's greatest players including Kirk Hammett, Will Adler and Ronnie Wood.
ESP guitars are renowned for the quality of their construction and it's a well earned distinction, as this quality is present in all their guitars and basses, from their top end signature models through to the more affordable LTD models. ESP and LTD Guitars and Basses feature high quality hardware and design features that are indicative of a company that has spent 36 years designing some of music's most brutal, hard wearing and road worthy instruments.
