Yesterday I traded my Line 6 HD500 (wasn't using) for this LTD EC1000.

Flamed top, Sperzel locking tuners, Duncan JB/'59 pups, Earvnana nut, TonePros Bridge/Tail, Abalone flags and binding, and HSC. Very well built, plays great, pretty as hell. She only has a headstock chip (to be fixed later) and light worming on the back at the very bottom. The seller said she was a 2008, turns out after checking with ESP, she is a 2004. And these pics were before I stripped, cleaned, polished, and oiled her.

Congrats! Those are great guitars for the price. I actually just bought a Viper 400 for a couple hundred to mess around on.

I have had a couple EC-1000 over the years. I actually had a see through blue one many moon ago and got rid of it, and deeply regret it, I hardly ever see one of those pop up used.

Nice! All that abalone can bee a bit much IMO on a darker guitar but it looks quite nice on the natural colored burst. I'd definitely have one.

I'm an idiot and I accidentally clicked the "Remove all subscriptions" button. If it seems like I'm ignoring you, I'm not, I'm just no longer subscribed to the thread. If you quote me or do the @user thing at me, hopefully it'll notify me through my notifications and I'll get back to you.

I'll have to put the Classic T models on my to-try list. Shame the finish options there are Anachronism Gold, Nuclear Waste and Aged Clown, because in principle the plaintop is right up my alley.

Presumably because the CCF (Combined Corksniffing Forces) of MLP and Gibson forums would rise up against them, plunging the land into war.

HNGD! Those mid-2000s LTDs are incredible (I own two MH400s from 2006 and both keep up with my MIJ ESP remarkably well).
Current Gear:
LTD MH-400
PRS SE Custom 24 (Suhr SSH+/SSV)
Ibanez RG3120 Prestige (Dimarzio Titans)
Squier Vintage Modified 70s Jazz V

You CAN play anything with anything....but some guitars sound right for some things, and not for others. Single coils sound retarded for metal, though those who are apeshit about harpsichord probably beg to differ.

Sweet fiddle man! I have a EC-1000VB with the EMGs. I have been looking at this one for a minute, got to get the cheddar back up after buying my last G'tar.
