Product Description

Offering great tone with unmatched design, the ESP LTD EC401VF Electric Guitar has many of the same features as the EC401, but adds a flamed maple top, chrome hardware and Seymour Duncan Pickups (JB/'59).

The easy play, bound 3 piece mahogany set neck with rosewood fretboard on a bound mahogany body provides excellent resonance and sustain. A 24.75 inch scale for note bending and cutaway design for easily reaching the upper frets increase playability. The fingerboard has eyecatching flag inlays while Grover tuners ensure reliable tuning across the note range.

All in all, an affordable professional single cut guitar with highly versatile, powerful Seymour Duncan tones, reliable hardware and tidy, attractive looks.

ESP LTD EC-401VF Guitar Customer Review
Sound: I just got this one Saturday morning...I played a gig with it that night. The sound is warm and pure through my Fender Deluxe. I own a Strat,Gibson and and Epi and this thing made me leave them home. I only raised the neck pickup...it was that ready to play. I have 25+ years of professional gigging under my belt and was blown away. Feature: I give it a 9 because it didn't include a case. However at this price point I gladly bought onel separately. Ease of Use: The tone on this runs from babe to beast. It can be mellow but when I cranked it for solos it pushed through the mix with no problems. Quality: I was suprised that this level of playability could be bought for so little. Iwent into the store hoping to pick up a spare axe and it moved my more expensive/popular axes to the background. Value: Most bang for the buck I've touched in many years. I'd have paid twice as much for it! Manufacturer Support: The warranty looks good but I haven't needed support. The Wow Factor: Get yourself one...if you like the look and feel of a Les Paul, you'll want this and you can buy two for the price of the Gibson. Overall: Look...this axe is as versatile as they come...hot pickups, great action, and sturdy. Tonally it is rich and loud as required.

zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Rockin' in Dallas"
Value: If you are wanting a Les Paul and are looking at an Epi, do yourself a favor and just get this. It's quality far surpasses the chinese Epi's, the tuners are great, and the Duncans are killer. The finish is spectacular, with bookmatched maple cap. Seriously, get this thing. You'll be amazed, and you'll have enough left over for a decent tube amp. Overall: If anything happens to mine, I'll get another one, it's that good. I have literally owned over 50 electric guitars, lots of Gibsons, and these ESP LTD continually blow me away with their quality. I also am a luthier, have worked for the major manufacturers and some small ones, so I know good stuff when I see it and hear it. Who cares where it's made, as long as the quality is there.

1. zZounds offers the industry‘s most musician-friendly payment plans

zZounds offers a variety of Play as You Pay installment plans that allow you to get the gear you want today. While our competitors might offer house credit cards that require you to fill out an application and pass a credit check, our payment plans are easy to get, simple to use, and, best of all, accrue zero interest. Unlike those house credit cards that can leave you vulnerable to exorbitant interest charges once the promotional period ends, we never have and never will charge interest when you take advantage of one of the zZounds Play as You Pay plans.
