UTILIZATION

The handle too much "log" the varnish quickly allows a lot of acrobatics. Access to acute way is like any Les Paul. Lowering action, we can still consider the return and the decently sweeping.

The ergonomics of the guitar is good thanks to the presence of indentations in the stomach and for access to acute. Vintage Honey Burst finish is beautiful with its very soft satin.

The weight is not very high for mahogany (remains to be seen what kind of mahogany was fine), making the guitar comfortable to play.

The sound is very good thanks to sumptuous Seymour Duncan SH1/SH4. The tone knob is playing its role. The logarithmic volume knobs do not violoning well, too bad ...

The mechanical blockages can easily change the rope, that's super convenient!

SOUNDS

I was looking for a rock sound and it does. The sound of the EC1000 is excellent for heavy rock, marriage with a mahogany Seymour + tube amp gives a warm sound with a real presence. The clean sounds are rich and well fill the space, which is nice.

The Seymours are not as precise and sharp as EMG81 (ceramic) but not at all ridiculous as long as saturated fat.

The association + mahogany set neck + fixed bridge gives a nice sustain. It lacks a push-pull on the tone to take advantage of splittage of Seymour, a shame that this is not original.

OVERALL OPINION

The value for money is excellent. The EC1000 is well placed to nag even rhythm. The compensated nut and Gotoh mechanics must be for something ...

The LTD Deluxe are really very good guitars for a decent price. The sound of these guitars and playing comfort are worth much more expensive guitars.

Basically, I hesitated to buy a Gibson Lespaul studio is a bit more expensive but I've read too many negative opinions on the value price of this model since 2000. I also think that philosophy is very different between these two guitars.

Edit September 2010: the EC1000VHB has not moved a bit ... not I set up a split in the bridge pickup, which expands the sonic palette. Since the acquisition of a "real" LP, I would say that the LTD is more comfortable, more accurate, more modern but less warm.
