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 roasted jatoba 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.

I purchased a snow white version of this guitar in late December 2021. The versatility of the coil split in the tone knob is nice. However, the neck needs to be removed in order to remove the pick guard and neck humbucker which was necessary as the neck pick up wasn't functioning properly upon arrival. I replaced both the pick ups with a Seymour Duncan Sentient and Pegasus combo and am very pleased with the result.

Overall, a good platform for a few mods if you like the design and a good entry level guitar for its price point.

I just got mine last week, but mine doesn't come with coil-split at the tone knob, why?

That's pretty standard for me. I mean it's a 5 hundred dollar guitar so I always upgrade the electronics. I am probably going to buy one of these

I just receive the cherry one. And the quality really go beyond my expectation. The guitar feel so good and the quality is A1. Just love it so much

I have one of these and I absolutely love it. Probably my favourite guitar. Would love to see a 7 string version with an Evertune and larger neck scale for lower tunings. The Steph Carpenter signature T models are ok but I just can't get on with that middle pickup being in the way.

I Recently Purchased A TE 200, While The Guitar Itself Is Acceptable, The Tuning Machines Are A Tremendous Pain In The Rear They Are Very Hard To Turn, Bad Enough That I Feared Breaking The Tuner Button. What Are Some Replacements That Would Drop In Without Modifying The Existing Tuner Hole Dimensions. Thank You. Would Love To Purchase LTD Locking Tuners If Possible.

Does this guitar support coil-split?

Todd B. ESP

Hello, Yes it does. It comes with a push pull switch on tone control. When you pull up on the tone, both neck and bridge pickups are split. We've updated this in the pickup specification.
