My ESP LTD EC-1000QM Deluxe



    I bought this guitar as a goal for one month sober.  Musician's Friend had a sale as these were being replaced with the new models, so I bought one.

Fit and Finish

    Of all the guitars I've owned, this one is the most well-crafted instrument I've played.  The workmanship is impeccable.
    I put red, green, and yellow marks on my volume knobs so that I can quickly find my place, even in low light situations.


    This guitar has locking tuners, which help keep it in tune.  This is a basic Les Paul style electric guitar, so other than that, the features are mostly vanilla.  I plan to put an Earvana string nut on this guitar when I can afford to do so.


    The Seymour Duncan '59 neck and JB bridge are fantastic.  This guitar doesn't come with splitting capabilities, but I can install them later.  Overall, this is the perfect versatile guitar.  I prefer the Jazz neck to the '59, but the '59 excels at rhythm.  The JB is great for solos and does pretty good with drop D.
