Product Description

ESP has done something very cool with their EC50. They've started with a classic design, and added their own unique touches like beveled body contours, sculpted cutaway access to the upper frets, and 24 extra jumbo frets -- and they've made it affordable enough for even beginners! The EC50 has ESP LH100 humbucking pickups, a Maple neck, Rosewood fingerboard and Black hardware.

Customer Reviews
4.5 out of 5 (110 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Irresistable."
Sound: For the price, the soung quality is amazing. ESP sells pretty decent sounding passive humbuckers. I play mostly metal so it is ideal. You have to work at it to get a decent clean out of it though. Feature: It came with a chord and an ESP catalog. But I didn't get a manual..just a warranty tag. I ended up finding a manual at a dealer. As far as the guitar, electronics seem to be holding up. The tuners only last from one to two hours depending on how you play. It could use some locking tuners. Quality: You take a chance at getting a lemon when you buy a guitar for $200, but this guitar is outstanding for the price. Thusfar it seems to be a well-made peice of equipment. No loose-ends, and it plays very well out of the box. Value: How the hell can you beat the price for this sexy thing. Manufacturer Support: Haven't had to call them yet. That's a good thing. The Wow Factor: The finish is outstanding, I'm just waiting for my first ding. The body has all the Les Paul apeal you need, but with that evil ESP kick. Overall: I am incredibly satisfied with this instrument, but if your planning on dropping some active humbuckers in it, it may need some work and money to arrange the passive setup into an active setup. I was going to drop EMG-81's in but it cost too much. The sound is incredible, but I think I would have payed less to just buy another ESP with 81's already installed. Reflective finish, strong tone, easy control, and a bang that will blow you away. Buy it.

zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Surprisingly well built for the money - great band for the buck."
Sound: Sounds good for overwound humbuckers, but a pickup upgrade would be worthy (as with most low-end guitars). I replaced the stoc pups with GFS Mean 90 pups and it sounds great. Feature: Two volume knobs, one tone. I re-wired it for one vol/one tone and put a Varitone in the unused pot hole. The features are hard to rate, because I got what I expected. BTW, someone mentioned that it doesn't stay in tune well. Putting some pencil lead on the nut when re-stringing (I do this with all my guitars) and a little snugging of the screw at the end of the tuners to tighten them up and it stays in tune as well as my Gibson ES-330, Parker PM10 and Epiphone Casino Ease of Use: The neck is simply fantastic. Good access to the control cavities so it's easy to work on. It has tuners, volume and tone knobs. Every guitar player should know how to work these ;) Quality: I was surprised at how well this guitar is put together. Finish and fit were flawless. However, the pickup switch feels a little flimsy and probably won't last as long as a US made switch - (same switch as most other low-end imports I've seen). The wiring was done very well and the wires were dressed very neatly. Even the insides of the control cavities were completely painted. I now use this as my main gigging guitar in my duo http://www.s-cats.com, and leave the Gibson and Epiphone at home. Value: This is very good bang for the bucks. Manufacturer Support: I haven't used customer support so I can't rate it. I upgraded the pickups, re-wired, and installed a Varitone by schematics I found on the Internet. The Wow Factor: It looks "Les-Paul-ish" and it is supposed to look that way. The contours make it easy and comfortable against my body and arm, and it is well balanced. Overall: I am a professional musician, doubling on sax, wind synth, guitar, flute, vocals, drum controller and sometimes keyboards. This has become my gigging guitar. I like the sound of the GFS Mean 90 pickups I installed, I like the one vol control near the little finger of my picking hand, and I like the weight, feel, neck, and balance of the guitar.

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.
