Heavy Tones and Classic Looks -- for Less
The ESP LTD EC-256FM electric guitar gives you as much visual flair as it does sonic force. This axe features a dark and warm mahogany body cut into a stylish single-cutaway contour, a sturdy mahogany neck, a smooth rosewood fingerboard with 22 frets, ESP LH-150 bridge and neck humbuckers, a confident Tune-o-Matic bridge and tailpiece, nickel hardware, and a push/pull tone pot to give your output an edgier single-coil bite whenever you want it. Though this the EC-256FM shines as a rock or metal instrument, it yields a pretty dynamic and powerful sound to fit other genres and styles as well.

Comfortable and Warm Mahogany Body
This ESP axe delivers that classic look and rich resonance, thanks to its dark-sounding mahogany body and gorgeous flame maple top. Mahogany will push the low and middle frequencies of your notes and chords, offering a dark, heavy output with a solid amount of sustain. The top edge of this body features a slightly beveled curve that fits snugly against your front. A sleek single-cutaway shape gives off a cool look as well as easy access to those higher frets for when you want to let your fingers fly.
Mahogany Set Neck in Thin U Contour
Spanning 22 XJ frets in length is your ESP LTD EC-256FM's sturdy mahogany neck. This melodious appendage is cut into a comfy thin U contour that fits in your hand like a glove. Each fret offers a nice and tight action, and a smooth rosewood fingerboard plays like butter. The mahogany neck adds a pleasant darkness to your performance, while set-neck construction delivers a serious dose of sustain.
Set of ESP LH-150 Humbuckers
Your pair of ESP LH-150 bridge and neck humbuckers give you a wide range of sonic output to traverse -- from well-articulated clean tones to some serious rock-infused distortion. These passive pickups are dark-voiced, but a few tweaks of your tone control will brighten things up when you need that extra high end. A three-way pickup selector switch gives you three pickup combinations to switch between during your set.
Push/Pull Tone Pot for Coil-Splitting
A nice extra feature on this ESP is its push/pull tone pots. Coil-splitting is a great assist for those times when you want your signal to really cut through the mix -- awesome for licks and solos. Using this feature in conjunction with your three-setting pickup selector switch gives you essentially six different pickup settings to play around with. That's a lot of tone from a single axe!
