This is an early production ESP LTD EC-1000 Deluxe Goldtop. This one has the factory Earvana compensated nut and the Seymour Duncan alnico Pro II set. There is not one spot on the top of this guitar I have babied this thing its entire life. I never played more than a birthday party with it, strictly my recording instrument. On the back there is a very lite scuff that will buff out and a small dimple here or there nothing breaking the finish (see pics) It conveys the cherished mahogany/maple sound in a thinned out 24 fret variation that honestly has to be played to be appreciated.
The action is low enough that it holds a 1.5mm pic in place at the 22nd fret.. No buzzing neck is pin straight, frets are in 90% condition etc Factory locking tuners, Maple top bound, nice tummy and behind neck cutaways add to the ergonomics... Not all gauded up like some of the other models in this line... I'm not a huge fan of emgs or mother of pearl inlay. This imbues the classic feel and look of a Les Paul but even smoother because of its contours.
This is where LTD and ESP crossover. I have felt ESP Eclipses that felt like toys compared to this guitar Research so you know I'm not just puffing it up...The item "ESP LTD EC-1000 Deluxe Gold Top Electric Guitar.
