Not as thick as my dimarzio evo in my epiphone but works well for down tuning. Decent clean too, but i bought it for metal and it works well.

Its got Duncan pickups in it but they'll soon be EMG 81, and the other good thing is the floyd rose bridge

I'm torn between getting a ltd 500/1000 and getting a sexy Schenker acoustic too or splurging it all on an Eclipse II. I really really want a snow white model but I'm worried about the quality of the 500 and I fooking hate the sparkly bits on the 1000's - they're really putting me off that one.
Any ideas?

Love it actually, its a fantastic guitar.

Really nice neck, great feel, great pickups, great all-around 7-string...ultimately though, 7-strings are not for me and it is therefore up for sale (See sig ).

I have a EC-1000. It's black and the abalone on the neck and body. I also thought that the abalone shine doesn't look good but in real life it is really nice.

I really like my guitar. It has the good features of les paul plus some other that I miss about "classic" les paul. Its great that it has 24 frets and EMG's.
#60
ok i got uploaded sum photos from my Digital SLR of my ESP Forest copy picked it up for $300 brand new

The guitar itself


close up on da double locking trem


the pickups


the fingerboard and inlays


the headstock


The backplates


The neck


The bolts


and the back of the headstock


and for the record even thou this is not a genuine ESP it still plays ****in good and i will be putting EMG 81's in it in da future
#61
This is my latest guitar, Viper-400.



Seriously I have fallen in love with this thing because to me it feels like the perfect mix between a big ol' vintage guitar and a widdlestick

It has a nice thick body and fixed bridge so you can beat out riffs on it easily, but the neck is nice and thin, but has abit of shape to it, not too flat. And the fingerboard is nice and flat too. The cutaways make the fret access perfect and the contours sculpted out of the body make it so comphy when playing stood up

Honestly, I tried out the ESP Viper but preferd this one because of the thinner neck. I would recomend this guitar to anyone

Hi everyone, for a while now I have been looking at an LTD guitar to buy, and I found a used EC-1000 (The ASB one with Seymour Duncans) and I wanted to know how the Duncans would work for metal playing and how they compare to the EMGs. I play stuff like Megadeth and Children of Bodom. You know, metal.

Also, I used my friends LTD DV8R and it kicks ass.

They'll do great, they're great for anykind of music. plus Dave mustaine & Alexi alaiho both use Seymour Duncan pickups
#64
I'm not shure if alexi is useing the blackouts anymore, the latest pics i've seen he's been using EMG 81's. But for most of his career he's been using (in my opinion) inferior passive pickups. And dave mustaine has used the duncans most of his career. Also bear in mind Lamb of God and Arch Enemy, two bands with really heavy guitar tones use the seymour duncan JB/Jazz combo.

I'd say in comparison the EMG's are more ballsy and big sounding, the duncans have better harmonics, like when you do a big bend it just whails out

How in the world did you manage to get that 350 shipped?! I've been wanting one of those for a while and it would cost me a good amount close to 700

thats awesome, hows it play?


honestly, best guitar I ever tried. Period.

It got a bass neck, lol. (kinda)

only downpoints I can think of: comes with a shitty pickup and is only made for metal, clean sound with it isnt really cool so I use my other guitar for that.
#76
I have an ESP Horizon III. Looks a bit like the guitar in the first post. Will get pics later.
