Considering all the companies that has a version of a single cut body, this makes them no closer to Gibson than anyone else. If they were, theyd be getting sued, like PRS was back around 2001.


Does the ST or the TE series make them seem like they want to be close to Fender?  Or the V series like Jackson?

Not many do anything terribly original. Its about finding a fit and a feel that works best with the player.

what's st or te?

the ESP/ltd  models like the ec 100 really look like the Gibson lp custom
with a lower price
and with EMG pickups
that's all

after, that with the EC 1000 +sh1 sh4 : does it really sound like a Lp with a higher price
i don't know because i have not this model
they were made to give more power to modern player and with a little price vs a Lp Standard 2018 for example ( the hp series cost a lot of money, more than before)

If hard rock / metal are your generes, they are definitely worth checking out. The EC 1000s are well built and come with locking tuners, EMG, Fishman Fluence or Seymour Duncan Pickups.
