What is your overall opinion of this product?
I read a lot of reviews and tried to find the best guitar I could for under $1000. I found multiple sites that had the ESP LTD EC-1000 in their top rated guitars under $1000. I started reading reviews on the other music sites and overwhelmingly people seemed to love this guitar. You can buy it with the EMG pickups for awesome metal thrashing, or you can buy it with the Seymour Duncan pickups which probably add a bit more versatility for blues, rock, grunge, and yes, even metal.
As I unboxed this thing, I was immediately impressed with the satin finish. I sat down and tuned it up, the action was super low, I played every fret and there was no buzz anywhere. It was now time to hook it up and hear it in action, so I plugged it into my Eleven Rack and started playing around with different sounds. It was incredibly clean played on my clean setting, super jazzy with some spank on the jazz settings, handled the crunch and overdrive amazingly. All in all, it blew me away.
