Featuring magnetic and acoustic-sounding piezo pickups, the ESP LTD EC-1000 Piezo is an electric guitar with a mahogany body, a quilted-maple top, a classic single-cutaway design, and a see-thru blue finish. Its set-through, three-piece mahogany neck offers a 24.75” scale and is fitted with a rosewood fingerboard and 24 extra-jumbo frets. The fingerboard has a 13.78" radius.

At the headstock, strings are secured by a set of LTD locking tuners, while on the body, a Fishman tune-o-matic style Powerbridge and stop tailpiece provide a separate piezo pickup system to generate an acoustic-style sound which can be blended with the traditional magnetic pickups, or chosen outright to simulate an acoustic guitar sound, making this electric guitar quite versatile on stage.

As for the magnetic pickups, this guitar is outfitted with two Seymour Duncan humbuckers: The '59 at the neck—providing a bright attack and pleasant sustain complimentary to full-sounding chords—and the JB in the bridge position, which offers a powerful low end, crisp highs, and an upper midrange bump. A mini toggle switch allows you to choose between the magnetic and piezo electronics, or combine them for an extensive range of sounds. Each system has its own set of controls: a 3-way pickup selector switch along with master volume and tone controls for the magnetics, and a single volume control for the piezo system. In addition, dual output jacks enable flexible routing possibilities. For a full description of these jacks, please peruse the features section below.

Blending Options
This guitar gives you the ability to use traditional magnetic pickups, an acoustic-sounding piezo pickup system, or a blend of the two. A separate toggle switch, located near the three control knobs, allows you to select between magnetic, piezo, or blended configurations.
Output Options
This guitar provides two output jacks for flexible routing. One jack, when used with a standard instrument cable, routes your magnetic pickups to your amplifier or pedalboard, much as a traditional guitar would. The second jack carries a mono blend of your piezo and traditional magnetic pickups. However, plug a stereo Y cable into this jack and you can elicit stereo operation from your guitar, with the TIP carrying your magnetic pickups and the RING carrying your more acoustic, piezo sound. Fostering even more routing possibilities, both jacks can be used at the same time with two mono instrument cables. In this case, jack 1 will carry piezo signal, while jack 2 will route the Seymour Duncans.
