A ’59 Humbucker and a Seymour Duncan JB

As part of the EC-1000 Piezo, ESP installed a popular and versatile set of Seymour Duncan humbucking pickups. In the first place, there is the Seymour Duncan ’59 neck humbucking pickup that delivers a creamy PAF tone with a full voice and articulate top end. It is great when played clean or through a high-gain circuit. An ideal complement to the Duncan JB model humbucker at the Eclipse EC-1000 Piezo’s bridge position, with a much hotter output allowing you to slam your amp or stompbox for tight and punchy sounds. It is equipped with a 3-way pickup selector and a push-pull knob for coil-split tones.

An Acoustic and an Electric Tone

ESP has equipped the LTD EC 1000 Piezo with the Fishman Powerbridge, which is the industry’s leading power supply. Piezo pickups are integrated into this TOM-style bridge, providing rich and natural acoustic tones as well as the aggressive sounds offered by magnetic humbuckers. Using the onboard mini toggle, you can switch between each sound or blend them together. As an alternative, you may use the dual outputs to send the magnetic and piezo signals to their own amplifiers simultaneously.
