Hell yeah! I bought a used LTD EC-1000 VHB for 700€. Well, actually I didn't buy it yet but the deal is set and I'll get it next friday. I think my GAS for guitars will settle down for a while now.

You should have gotten the white one or the black one, but still very nice/10.


I really don't like the abalone they got, and those Seymour Duncans will suit my style better. And in a small country like Finland it's hard enough to find a guitar like this used, so I didn't really a choice with the finish. Lucky me, I think this is the best looking finish. I like the Vintage Black also, but black is such a boring color.

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.

That's a very nice guitar you've got there (looks nicer than a Gibson if you ask me, but then again, I may not be the best person to ask given my bias towards anything Gibson).

Awesome looking guitar, I would go for the SDs as well, would suit me better, and more importantly you as you have already said.

What are the quality of these guitars like I've never played one but some kid in a guitar shop told me they were crap when I expressed an interest in one, asking if he could get one in. I assumed he was putting the 1000 in the same category as the cheaper ESP LTDs but I don't know, how are they UG?

^ I liked the one I tried, but considering you're in the UK, an edwards, as previously mentioned by don humpador, would be better value, as long as you aren't averse to shipping from japan. Should work out between about £450-£500 when you add in postage and customs. It's an ESP sub-brand (much like LTD) for the japanese market, and it's made in Japan (unlike the LTD, which is korean). And in the UK, the ec1000 can go for like £800 if you aren't careful. While to me, the edwards is the superior guitar.
