Nice, LTD with the EMG's. I picked up that LTD ec-1000 a few months ago and am loving the way it plays.

I tune down down...

You like those Deon? I just never could get into active pups or many of the LTD stuff.

I run an 85 and an 86, through my Vox amp it sounds frickin fantastic. Through my old Ampeg, they are too hot to turn up the amp (tube tone) so I play my passive Ibanez on the Ampeg.

Although EMG are pretty much a one trick pony. The trick they do is pretty good. Granted, they don't clean up real well. But when you grind like they do who really cares.

Nice grab Deon indeed.

yeah, i have a baritone which you can see in the pic next to it, i had it a while and love how it plays so i grabbed this other one. the paint/wood grain is reaaly cool.

i think i know what you may mean with what you say about the ltd's as i know they are fairly chunky guitars physicaly.
but for me though they are great coz i play quite hard, and i like that they can handle a bit a of stick.
i remember when i first started playing it toook me ages to learn to back off the guitar a bit insted of smashing it so much. im better now but still strangle its *** at times so i like its durabilty.

i know a luthier who i take my guitars to every now and then when im lazy, he says he cant tell any difference between the ltds and the esp's.

pretty sure the only differenc is esp are from japan and the ltds from korea.
that and the woods are obviously diifrent.
i sure as hell cant hear the difference in em.
the price though, well tis another story.
