ESP LTD SC-20 Electric Guitar - 3-tone Burst

Product Description:

To celebrate over 20 years of his signature guitars, the Stephen Carpenter signature LTD SC-20 6-string solidbody electric guitar hooks you up with a re-creation of Carpenter's first signature ESP. Loaded with a unique set of Seymour Duncan and ESP humbuckers and a single-coil, this guitar offers a massive palette of tone. Add to that the brilliant resonance of a smoothly contoured Horizon-style alder body with the sustain of a maple through-neck design, and the ESP LTD SC-20 will take your music back to a time when gargantuan riffs ruled the world.

Based on ESP's acclaimed Horizon body style

You can count on ESP's Horizon body style for a high-performance take on the traditional dual-cutaway design. The Stephen Carpenter signature SC-20 is crafted by attaching two beautifully sculpted alder wings to a 3-piece maple neck that runs the length of the body. This construction gives the LTD SC-20 impressive sustain while enhancing articulation and clarity. And the LTD SC-20's 25.5-inch scale length balances the ability to handle low-tuned riffs with comfortable tension and tuning stability.

A unique pickup configuration

As evidenced by the SC-20 — which re-creates Carpenter's very first signature ESP — Stephen has enjoyed an unusual pickup combination for decades. At the bridge of this LTD is a genuine Seymour Duncan JB humbucker, singing with all the tight-bottomed output and aggressive mids that it is famous for. Moving into the middle and neck positions, you'll find an ESP Designed LH-150N humbucker and an ESP Designed LS-120 single-coil, respectively. Combined with a 5-way switch, these pickups open up a world of tonal options from seismic power to ethereal cleans.

The sound that changed the face of hard rock forever

By the time the late '90s rolled around, bands such as the Deftones had already left their mark on mainstream rock, ushering out the last wave of grunge-influenced alternative and bringing forth a new era of hard rock. One feature of the hard rock revolution was increasingly heavy guitar tone pioneered by guitarists such as Stephen Carpenter — the same drop-tuned depth you'll get with the ESP LTD SC-20.
