Top-quality EMG pickups
Capture the exact sound you desire. No matter the style you're aiming for, the ESP EC-1000QM will work for you. A magnificent pair of high output EMG pickups gives you supreme choice when it comes to shaping your tone.
The EMG 60 neck pickup is the ultimate humbucker for adding brightness and harmony to your music. Your lead lines and solos will sing with plenty of sustain. Every note you play will cut above the mix with piercing, defined sharpness. Then there's the powerful EMG 81 bridge pickup. You'll be able to unleash aggressive intensity into your sound thanks to its ability to produce a remarkable, low-end growl. These humbuckers are also masters at eliminating noise interference, meaning you'll achieve flawless clarity. An electronic system that gives you complete control.
Locking bridge for perfect tone
Superb sustain and terrific tone. The ESP EC-1000QM features a Tonepros bridge system to enhance your sound to the maximum. This innovative improvement to the standard tune-o-matic bridge allows both the bridge and tailpiece to be locked down using 2 small-set screws. The end result is a supremely stable bridge that always offers you perfect tone and increased sustain. Every note you play will glisten with studio-level sound quality.
The EC-1000QM is one of ESP's most playable guitars yet. At every point in the design and manufacturing process, measures have been taken to ensure the ultimate playing experience.
A set-neck construction gives easy access to the very highest frets. You'll never be restricted again by notes that are difficult to hit. You'll play in complete comfort thanks to the three-piece mahogany neck's thin "U"-shaped profile. Your hand will sit comfortably at any point along the guitar's neck, meaning you can play on and on for hours without suffering cramp. 24 extra-jumbo sized frets also make hitting notes easier, making your playing area larger. You'll be able to play at extremely fast tempos knowing that you'll hit every note. A guitar so good, you'll never want to put it down.
A true thing of beauty. The EC-1000QM is a stunningly elegant guitar that you won't be able to stop looking at. A beautiful quilted maple top gives the body a distinctive pattern, which creates a remarkably pretty overall aesthetic when paired with the guitar's translucent black cherry finish. Unique abalone shell inlays along the fretboard add an extra touch of individual quality. You've never seen an instrument as classy as this. You'll be certain to stand out on stage, and make your band mates envious with the attention you'll get when you're playing one of these. Simply divine.
Hard rock heritage
ESP Guitars are legends of the rock music world. Established in Tokyo, Japan in 1975, ESP (Electric Sound Products) initially manufactured high-quality replacement parts for guitars already on the market. These replacements became extremely popular with rock guitarists, as many users noticed that the new parts, when added to their existing guitars, afforded their instruments extra power and aggression.
Noticing their new-found popularity, ESP capitalised and decided to use their expertise to begin crafting guitars of their own. Early models were used in the music of KISS and The Rolling Stones. As years passed, ESP's guitars became increasingly popular within metal and hard rock genres. Metallica, Megadeath, Slayer, Judas Priest, and Guns N' Roses have all used the immense sound of ESPs in their music. Quality, hard rock sound favoured by the very best in the business.
