ESP LTD EC-1001 FR electric guitar reviewed by TopGuitar magazine

TopGuitar is proud to inform, that the December issue of the magazine features a review of ESP LTD EC-1001 FR electric guitar. The instrument was delivered for review by ESP distributor in Poland, Sound Service.

Below are some excerpts from a review by gear department editor Artur Chyb:

“The EC-1001 possesses all those practical elements boasted by the highest ESP models.”

“The attack is very fast and power chords resound brilliantly. The guitar flawlessly handles thrashy palm muting and the frequency range fits this kind of sound perfectly. On the amp’s clean channel, the pickups faithfully recreate the warm character of wood.”

“If you are one of those guitarists who like to emphasize their individuality with ears full of heavy, saturated distortions, this black beauty is waiting just for you. You will not regret, because the quality of ESP LTD EC-1001 FR goes hand in hand with craftsmanship and high standard.”

The latest issue of TopGuitar magazine is available across Poland in Empik and Ruch press retail networks, in the online store (, and as mobile version for tablets and smartphones using iOS ( or Android ( operating systems.
