ESP LTD EC-258 - Black Satin
The ESP LTD EC-258 8-string electric guitar proves that entering the world of extended-range electric guitars doesn't have to leave you broke. Its 3-piece mahogany neck with Thin U profile sets a fantastic foundation for technical fretwork, further enhanced by the easy playability of its extra-jumbo frets. A pair of ESP Designed LH-308 humbucking pickups are optimized for the EC-258's extended range, delivering clear and articulate tonality even when you're chugging on that low F#. Complete with individual volume controls for each pickup, a tone control, and 3-way switching, the ESP LTD EC-258 will exceed your expectations for a budget-friendly 8-string electric guitar.
Extended range means more creative potential
From acclaimed metal artists like Meshuggah to modern innovators like Animals as Leaders, countless guitarists reach for extended-range guitars like the ESP LTD EC-258 to deliver truly punishing guitar tones. While it would be an obvious choice for down-tuned riffing, you'll find that eight strings give you an amazing range of chord voicings and potential for harmony lines. If you suspect that your music would benefit from an extended-range guitar, it's hard to beat the value in the ESP LTD EC-258.
ESP's Eclipse body style blends classic looks with modern performance
Nothing screams hard rock like ESP's timeless Eclipse body style. The extra mass of this single-cutaway design gives the LTD EC-258 truly epic sustain, whereas its slightly arched top provides you with comfortable hand positioning, no matter your picking style. Add to that a super-sharp cutaway, which gives you open access to the LTD EC-258's upper frets, and you're totally ready to rock.
Set-neck construction delivers sustain and articulation
The set-in mahogany neck on the ESP LTD EC-258 provides a more solid connection to the body than you get with a bolt-on neck design. That means better vibrational transfer from the neck to the body, which results in faster attack and longer-lasting sustain.
