Does anyone know if the EC-1000 neck to body angle is straight or slanted a few degrees like Gibson Les Pauls? I need a guitar with even string height throughout the fretboard so it is easier to shred on higher registers. Thanks.

hey there i own 2 ec-1000 one with emg's and one with seymour duncans, i am not 100% sure but to me it seems that the neck angle is pretty well straight all the way down, i can rip from one end to the other, and it does not seem to deviate much at all, both i have never got set up, but yah i can't play a les paul like i play these babies, much easier and smoother and my hands bind less at the high scale of the neck, hope this helps you out a bit.

Where the neck connects to the body is it straight - or does it change a few degrees in angle?

On guitars where the neck is angled off the body the strings still follow the neck...

Which means there is a higher action at the higher registers - a pain if you're into playing shred.

No, it stays even, it's usually to compensate for a non-recessed TOM bridge.

No, the reason the neck angle is there, is to stop that from happening. The TOM bridge raises the strings up so the neck bends back to keep the height consistent.

Correctamundo, my Eclipse has a slight neck angle so I would assume the EC-1000 also has it.
