ESP LTD Eclipse EC-258 Electric Guitar, 8-String

Belt out some of the raunchiest tones known to man with the EC-258 8-stringer. A pair of LH-308 humbuckers produce tones so fat they're borderline unhealthy.

"Way better then my expectations"
Verified Customer zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
Tried the Ibanez . Ibanez being my favorite brand, I was disappointed. Schecter was even worse. Very cheap. Have had a few ltds before including a deluxe that ran a grand. Wasent impressed. This guitar is heavy, huge short neck, but the pickups are actually playable for stock. They hit pretty hard for what they are. Lil fret buzz but I'll get around to that when I order a new pick up. Worth every penny for $500. Never thought China could make a playable guitar . Proved me wrong. LTD hit a home run with this. Can really only say the pickups aren't top of the line but they usually aren't for this price range. Compared to the $100 less schecter Ibanez (don't even bother with the cheap Jackson) that extra hundred goes a very long way. Thank you so much LTD and zZounds.
