Back when ESP was founded in 1975, its original claim to fame was taking existing guitars and making them better, with modified necks and components that increased their playability and sonic quality. Today, ESP is still proud to offer classic guitar shapes that feel and sound better than you’d expect, especially at the affordable pricing in our LTD Series. Available in a number of finishes, the TE-200 is a great guitar for rock, classic rock, country, blues, and more. It features a mahogany body, and a fast, thin U-shaped maple neck with 24-fret maple fingerboard. Pickups on the TE-200 are a set of ESP Designed LH-150, a good, high-output humbucker that's versatile in tones, making the TE-200 a terrific all-around guitar for every gig.

Two things we can say about our friends at ESP Australia: 1) They're damn good musicians and 2) They make great demo videos! Here's our friend Tim Gauci from CMI, ESP's Australian distributor, doing a demo of the LTD TE-200....

Bought this from another site. This is a really fantastic guitar for the price. Super low action, super easy bending. Really a joy to play it. It's really a great alternative in my lineup, to get a different feel when I'm in a rut. It seems to help me refine my techniques when I can bounce to and fro with radically different feeling guitars. I primarily play hollow and semi-hollow bodies but have been looking for a T guitar that I can practice more shredding on.

Now I generally just don't care for the offset/2-point trem style guitar, and that is what the metal-oriented guitar companies traditionally put a lot of their energy into. For solid-bodies I only really like the hard tail T, for its shape, aesthetics, reliability and so on. This guitar was really totally spot on for what I was looking for. It plays so much smoother and faster than others that look like it. I think it's well conceived in terms of looks, being somewhat traditional and metal at the same time. The proportions are nice too. I'd never taken to 24 fretters before — other 24-fret T-style guitars that I've tried out seemed a bit too neck-y, too small-bodied. This one is proportioned so well in terms of fretting, reach, and also just holding on your lap. It feels right mounted on either leg. I also generally like the 24-fretter aspect of having the two pickups being set closer together (less disparity between the two) though some don't like the brighter neck pickup.

I wish they made this look in a 1000. Make more please.

I had to register just to comment on this; insanely good guitar! Maybe I got lucky with mine or something, but this beats many more expensive guitars.. somehow everything just clicks here. Now I want TE-401 blks so bad, it must be even better (?)

I would buy the baritone version in a heartbeat. I love baritones and I want a tele bari so badly!

Carl N.

thanks for the suggestion

I would pay good money for this guitar to come in a baritone format. I have this guitar and would feel like my life is complete if there was a baritone one. PLEASE

Carl N.

Thanks for the suggestion!

Picked up a new guitar a year ago today and was originally looking for this style in a 6 string baritone. Ended up buying my first none ESP since it wasn’t offered and can’t afford a custom.

Wish they would offer the SCT-607 as a 6 string (ideally in black w/white pick guard).

Or offer the TE-1000 or TED-600T as a baritone build

Does this guitar have white binding?
