The ultimate, stage-ready guitar. The EC-1001T contains a unique, chambered body construction, to provide classic resonant tones in a more user-friendly fashion. A pair of active, humbucking pickups help assist your stage dominance, providing a ferocious sound in all aspects of playing. For further versatility, a push/pull coil-switch system has been implemented into the EC-1001T’s superb electronics. Witness incredible playability at your fingertips, with a “Thin U” neck profile, sculpted to the shape of your hand. Consistency in performance is gifted by an array of locking tuners, presenting an instrument that refuses to let you down.
You can't imitate EMGs. They are some of the most astounding sounding pickups known to man, and they have one godly tone. The EC-1001T pairs the 57TW in the bridge with the 66TW in the neck for a duet of complete sonic perfection. The 57TW is a masterpiece of pickup design, offering a high powered, active tone with tonnes of raw output. Your licks will shine with the gain cranked up, having a solid, fiery attack and plenty of presence. If you like your music to be punchy and defined, then you'll love this pickup.
The neck position 66TW offers a wealth of more tonal quality. It is designed to bring out the saturation and warmth in each note you play. You'll find that it responds incredibly well to your playing, and brings out the best in in your riffs. Higher notes will ring out with a beautiful, soaring clarity, so you can be sure that everything you play will be incredibly well articulated. Melodies will sing, and arpeggios will cascade with vibrance. Both pickups can also be coil split for a more vintage style, single coil tone. In unison, these they create a powerful, crunchy voicing for this exceptional guitar.
Destined for the stage
The freedom of weightlessness. The ESP EC-10001T has much more to offer than just its mesmerising sound. A full-thickness mahogany body is chambered for weight-relief, meaning you can roam the stage with electrifying energy. Let nothing come between you and an unforgettable performance. Because the EC-1001T is crafted for endless playing freedom.
Sleekness. It’s vital in the world of guitars. Especially when it comes to fast playing. Thankfully, ESP have incorporated a range of tonewoods that ensure you can play with supreme comfort and flexibility. A 3-piece mahogany neck is sculpted into a thin “U” profile, creating a feel that is just right in the palm of your hand. But the secret to the EC-1001T’s effortless playability is the macassar ebony fretboard. Ebony is renowned for its ultra-smooth surface, which is why it’s a favourite across countless ESP models. Therefore, your hands can glide up and down the entirety of the guitar’s scale in rapid fashion. More precision, no restraints
Ready to rock. Always. The EC-1001T ensures you sound your best every time you step on stage. Thanks to a collection of LTD locking machine heads, your strings will remain consistently in tune in every performance. So you can spend more time shredding, and less time tediously tuning.
