(SOLD) LTD EC-256 Snow White 2017
LTD EC-256, very white, made in China 2017. Here we have an instalment in the long-running Eclipse series, ESP's approximation of the Les Paul, but updated with some more shreddable specs and styling and built with a lot of love. This is a recent example and in good shape. The previous owner switched a bunch of the black hardware for gold stuff, which looks super cool with the white finish. The slim neck with jumbo frets and an easy-access join make for fast and free movement around the board, plus the slim profile and lightweight body make the whole thing just feel a bit too effortless really. The sound on offer is convincing too: bright and full on the neck pickup, barky and snarly on the bridge. Heaps of guitar for laughably little cashola... as per LTDs modus operandi.
