Seriously versatile, and beautiful to boot, the ESP LTD EC-256FM Electric Guitar has mass appeal and the tone to back it.
A very traditional pairing, the ESP LTD EC 256FM Electric Guitar is comprised of a beautiful flamed maple top with a distinctive Lemon Drop finish, atop a mahogany body, to give a tonal combination that has been a favourite for decades.
The body shape of the ESP LTD EC256FM Electric Guitar is also seemingly tradition until you reach the sharp cutaway, which, along with improved access to the upper frets, also gives the guitar a more aggressive, modern styling. The body is also quite thin, lowering its weight, and the back offers additional comfort with its slight contour.
Set into the body of the ESP LTD EC-256FM, the neck has been constructed from mahogany and carved to a thin, contoured U shape. A rosewood fingerboard with 22 XJ frets tops this. With its narrow dimensions, contoured shape and flat fingerboard, the neck is an acquired taste but those who get on with it, will love it.
The ESP LTD EC-256FM Guitar’s 24.75" scale length also offers up a 42mm standard nut at one end, while at the other is a TOM Bridge & Tailpiece. Along with ESP tuners at the headstock this set up ensures easy, reliable tuning and excellent sustain.
The ESP LTD EC-256FM has been outfitted with two ESP LH-150 humbuckers, each with a coil-tap at their respective tone controls. Along with the three-way pickup selector switch, this offering gives you the versatility to give just about any genre justice. The humbuckers being quite bright and not muddy in sound, allows you to go full pelt with metal and rock, and then being able to switch to single-coil tones easily for blues and jazz.
