ESP is now streaming a new demo of their LTD EC-01. The LTD EC-01 offers a Mahogany body, 3-piece Mahogany neck with a thin “U” profile, an Ebony fingerboard, and 22 XJ stainless steel frets. The EC-01 is straightforward in its electronics as well, bringing with it a single ESP-exclusive Seymour Duncan Custom 14 and one single Volume knob.
So in the event you’re not really into fiddling with a ton of options – or your guitarist is just kind of an idiot – this is a great option. Though the push-pull control of the volume knob does switch the Seymour Duncan Custom 14 to a single-coil-style sound, which ESP calls “the most wide-ranging single coil bridge territory we’ve ever offered.”
The EC-01 is available here for $1,099 in Vintage White, Black, and Olympic Burst.
