A High-performance Rock-ready Guitar
The ESP LTD EC-257 is an extended-range guitar with musical tone and aggressive style. Its mahogany body is loaded with warmth and resonance, while its single-cutaway shape supplies you with classic looks and great feel. A pair of ESP Designed humbucking pickups provides a great foundation for a wide variety of styles. A roasted jatoba-capped mahogany neck provides fluid playability, making your rapid-fire runs feel effortless. Beyond that, the LTD EC-257's set-neck design gives you sustain for days. Complete with an eye-grabbing satin finish and attractive black hardware, the LTD EC-257 is a high-performance rock-ready instrument.
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-257 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-257's upper frets, and you're totally ready to shred.
Set-neck construction delivers sustain and articulation
The set-in mahogany neck on the ESP LTD EC-257 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. The guitarists at Sweetwater love set-neck guitars. Plug in the LTD EC-257, turn your amplifier up, and you'll see why.
