(SOLD) Edwards E-LP-98LTC Vintage White 2015
Edwards E-LP-98LTC, vintage white, made in Japan 2015. Edwards is the vintage style brand under the ESP Guitars umbrella, so they mostly make Fender and Gibson inspired offerings and are sold exclusively within Japan. This creamy creature references the iconic Les Paul Custom, so you get the snappy visual details: gold hardware, ebony fretboard, inlaid headstock, seven-ply binding... blingtastic. The cheesecake-esque white finish is crisp and classy, it's a fun departure from the more common black and will surely look terrific on stage. The tone on deck is thick, juicy and full. The fitted factory Duncan humbuckers deliver the goods, with a dark but defined neck pickup and a wide, rich bridge pickup. These always turn heads around here, so come see what all the fuss is about.
