Anyone have one of these beauties? I'm considering getting me one but wanted an idea if its a guitar a metal player like me would want. I have an EX-400 and an F-400, I've read the neck is kind of thick on the EC-1000 but just how thick? I need a guitar thats going to sound amazing but still stand up to some fast metal riffs. If having a thin "u" neck instead of an extra thin "u" neck like my F-400 will make too bad of a difference would it be worth to pay 150 more dollars for the EC-1000 with tremolo/extra thin U neck?

EC-1000 has a great neck for both shredding and heavy riffs. Thin necks are better for legato and tapping, yes, but if you put Joe Satriani on a Gibson Les Paul, he will still be able to rip it up. The EC-1000 has a very balanced neck, designed for both shredding and riffing. Thin necks are nowhere near as effective and fun to play when writing riffs, so the LTD is an option to seriously consider.

I have one and the neck is perfect for shredding and for heavy riffs. It really is the perfectly balanced neck for a rock/metal type of technique. I am extremely happy with this guitar, wouldn't imagine ever selling it.

If you have an F-400 and and EX-400 I wouldn't get an EC-1000 unless it had a Floyd, just so it wasn't basically the same guitar with a different shape

I AGREE! i recently bought an LTD viper 200fm. I am glad i dont listen to people on here talking about necks. It has a shorter scale, a high tension scale some call it. But i love it, it makes it perfect for drop tuning, and i play mostly rhythm anyway.

You just agreed with Walternativo about his opinion on necks, yet you don't listen to people on here talking about necks?
From personal experience, I always found that the bigger the neck, the easier my hand fitted around a riff. That's just me. This is a forum; people express their viewpoints here and it is also a place where you can impolitely disregard anything you read, like you so did.

I have a Maverick F-1 - thin neck
and a Les Paul Custom - fatter neck
the Les Paul is my preffered instrument when playing drop tuned riffs because of it's shorter scale length and it's larger, more softened neck.

why does the title say EC-100, when you're asking about the EC-1000?
