    Default New Goldtop Day (Ltd)

    ESP LTD EC-401V

    DMZ PAF 36th Anniversaries

    Nicely constructed, sounds great, feels great.

    Neck width is a little narrow for my liking (42mm) but I値l manage.

    While the PAF in the bridge is great, I知 gonna put in a Super Distortion for some more oomph.

    I also ordered some vintage Gibson style gold top hat knobs to replace the stock chrome ones.

    It sure is a real nice looking guitar and a great outdoor photos...picture postcard perfect. The gold top hat knobs would really spice the guitar up.

    I'd have to say (not to be too much of a downer), but I ignored the guitar and spent time googling your location and marveling over that (rather than the guitar).

    First off, congrats! Those EC-1000 series (or whatever level) are just great guitars period. And with a PAF and a SuperD? I can already hear the chorus to More Than A Feeling echoing through the hills!!!

    Now your guitar is free to roam on the range. Those pictures looks great and I can see why you love living out there. I live in a rat-race and I'm trying to get out!

    Actually not too bad in this valley. It痴 consistently 5-10ー warmer here than the surrounding areas.


    Back to guitars, I think i知 gonna also buy a PRS SE 245 and keep the one I like best.

    Everything about this Ltd is well above what I paid for it, but damn I have fat fingers and the 42mm neck is more apparent than I anticipated.

    I love the look of those LTDs... I half want to get three of them loaded with different pickup options for the price of a single Gibson... a Goldtop, a Burst and a Black custom...
    Oh no.....


    Oh Yeah!

    I wish I had known about this model sooner. I don't like the 24 fret on the 1000 models. And the Dimarzios are nice, and I love a gold top. Let me know if you ever decide to sell this one.

    Definitely a cool guitar. Other than changing the knobs, do you have any other plans for it or do you want to keep it stock?

    I believe the following LTDS are full thickness, 22 fret:
    EC-1000T
    EC-400VF
    EC-400AT
    Above EC-401V?
    Oh no.....


    Oh Yeah!

    If I keep it, I may put a Super Distortion in the bridge.
    Nothing else needs upgrading. It痴 a quality piece!
