6 YEAR EXTENDED WARRANTY SCHEME

The product price includes 6 years' warranty and 180 day money back guarantee.

However, the Gear4music extended warranty scheme provides an enhanced service, and is designed to offer a higher level of protection than many 'free' warranties offered by some retailers and manufacturers.

The highlights of this enhanced warranty service are:

  • Warranty is extended to 6 years from the date of delivery.
  • Our Money Back guarantee is extended from 30 days to 180 days (terms apply after 30 days)
  • Collection and delivery costs are included for the first 2 years
  • Claim 50% cash back on the cost of the policy after 6 years if it has not been used!
  • Warranty is transferable if the item is re-sold
  • Loan or replacement equipment will be provided if the product isn't repaired within 30 days
  • If an item can not be repaired, a similar alternative product or cash discount (as defined in this policy) will be offered
  • The policy can be cancelled within 30 days, and at any time after that for a pro-rata discount

Please note that this extended warranty is currently only available on products sold within the EU or EEA, and is subject to the terms and conditions as detailed on the extended warranty certificate provided.

For customers in outlying areas of the country, the price of the Extended Warranty may be marginally higher, due to the potential for higher collection and redelivery transport costs.

This enhanced warranty is in addition to the standard Gear4music and manufacturer warranty policies, and the Gear4music terms and conditions of trade. No statement or condition of sale contained within these terms affects or restricts your statutory rights as defined under the Consumer Contracts Regulation 2014.

Crafted With a Mahogany Body

The ESP LTD EC-1000 is crafted with a mahogany body which delivers a warm and resonant tone with excellent levels of sustain. The body features the classic EC shape, with a classic single-cutaway design and extended contouring to provide enhanced playing comfort. The set-through joint provides exceptional sustain and resonance, combined with an incredibly smooth neck heel for unhindered top-fret access.

Smooth & Comfortable Mahogany Neck

The ESP LTD EC-1000's neck has a fast playing-feel courtesy of its thin ''U''-shaped profile and flat 350mm fingerboard radius for excellent balance and reach across the strings. The sturdy and durable 3-piece mahogany neck is coupled with a pau ferro fingerboard for enhanced articulation and attack, which extends the tonal characteristics of the mahogany.

Powerful EMG Humbuckers

A pair of EMG humbuckers give the LTD EC-1000 the active power it requires for a fierce, metal performance. The EMG 81 bridge pickup is one of the most popular EMG designs, created for extreme note articulation and power. Featuring powerful ceramic magnets and close aperture coils, the EMG 81 gives you the sustain you need for fluid soloing and the clarity required for complex chords and riffing. The EMG 60 neck pickup is the ideal partner to the 81, providing rich overtones with a full treble response for distinct single-note solos.

Quality Hardware

The Tonepros Locking TOM and Tailpiece is a fixed, locking design, providing incredible tuning stability and optimum string vibration transfer. The bridge allows you to set up the perfect string action and intonation, while the LTD locking tuners ensure your strings are firmly locked in place.

LTD 1000 Series Guitars

The ESP LTD 1000 Series guitars sit at the top of the LTD range and offer players a premium blend of high-quality hardware, pickups, tonewoods, and an effortless playing feel. The LTD EC-1000 provides everything that a contemporary musician could require, with high-powered tones and the tuning stability needed for a professional performance.
