ESP LTD EC 1000 black

5.0 out of 5 stars Superb!, 6 July 2015
My black Ltd EC1000 Deluxe is the best guitar I’ve ever played or owned. Construction is flawless as is the Tone Pros hardware, EMGs and neck – really fast, smooth and wonderfully easy to play. The sound is monstrous and suitable for all genres from thrash, jazz, rockabilly etc. I bought mine new in 2008 and have since sold everything else I’ve owned. It knocks Gibsons sideways and pretty much anything else. The only equal is another one or the ESP variant. The one thing I’ve ever had to replace, strings not withstanding, was the battery connector. Everything else is A1. The only problem is that with one of these guitars, anything else you buy always comes second in every way

Great for Mcfarlane to release this figure - a cool repaint of the Halo 4 Elite Zealot from 2012 - superb. This is the best elite figure to have been released. Quality and everything is top notch (apart from the energy sword on the head which is flimsy) and it's one cool figure!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Superb!, 11 Jun. 2015
I'd been looking at these guitars for a little while before buying. As a long time stop bar tail piece user, I was wary of the Floyd bridge - I'd had a couple guitars in the past (long since sold) with them and had never gotten along with them - difficult set up, tuning a nightmare etc. I’m also not a fan of the Fender tremolo, as the angle of string can cause easy breakages at the ball end of top E etc. But, being an IM fan and wanting something a little different from a Gibson Les Paul, I eventually went for the RW version with white pickguard - on looks alone it scores 10/10.
The rosewood neck is phenomenal - flat and very fast. The frets are smooth and playing it is a joy. As a result, this has become my go to workhorse and I've pretty much played it exclusively in the 9 months I've had it. The FR special bridge is the most stable I've ever played and still is, even after total saddle replacement, following stripped housings, and fat brass block installation. The 2 single coils had a good even Strat tone (although I replaced with ceramic hot rails for higher output) and the Jackson humbucker “super distortion copy” screams.
The basswood body can dent fairly easily, but is of good, strong, durable quality. The satin gloss polyurethane finish is wonderful although not as hard as polyester, or as glassy. These last 2 points are pretty minor. This guitar is exceptionally good and I would choose it over anything else. I’ve never played anything quite like it in over 25 years of playing and recording.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good!, 16 April 2015

Bought to replace SDX Floyd Rose Special saddles that had broken after just 6 months regular playing with either 9s or10s (endscrew threads sheared)! These are an easy fit and if you've still got the old saddles on the unit before you replace, you can use them as intonation reference so making the whole thing a quick & easy job. I've not given 5 stars as I don't know how long they're going to last / durability, as I've only just fitted them last night. Finish & quality seem fine - time will tell!!

bought this to record guitar through Acoustics Labs software using Windows 7 laptop - works a treat as it connects directly to the PC soundcard. Would recommend.

It is vastly superior to plugging a 6.3mm lead into the microphone socket via a 3.2mm adaptor and trying to hook up that way

1.0 out of 5 stars Mcfarlane quality strikes again, 15 Dec. 2014
First off - the detail on this figure is great, good size and armour paint job is ok. On looks alone this is superb and if you're going to just keep it in the box fine..
If you plan to display out of box or give it to a child then don't bother - save your money and get something else

The real let down is that the quality of the plastic used is awful. The joints are extremely weak and break. The gun accessory is very cheap and has already snapped beyond repair. If you paid a £5 or less for it then ok, but it certainly isn't worth anymore - a complete ripoff.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great sounding Humbuckers, 14 Oct. 2014
Bought a pair of these to replace the weedy single coils (8K) in an SDX Jackson, so as to match the output of the Bridge Super Distortion (13K). They most certainly do the job and, being ceramic magnet based, the output is now much more even. They work exceptional well using both a clean tone or balls out distortion or anything in between. Would recommend and they're good value.
