(U.S. Only)

The EC-256FM is the perfect evidence that a great guitar doesn't have to be prohibitively expensive. A classic shape that's excellent for all musical styles and genres, the EC-256FM is available in multiple finishes and offers features that you normally associate with high-end guitars, like a flamed maple top, binding on the body, neck, and headstock, and set-neck construction for fast and easy access to the highest frets. The EC-256FM also features a mahogany body, a comfortable three-piece thin U-shaped mahogany neck, and a roasted jatoba fingerboard with inlays and 22 extra-jumbo frets. This guitar features our acclaimed ESP Designed LH-150 humbucking pickups that offer great tone for all genres of music, and the tone flexibility of coil-splitting controlled by a push-pull switch on the tone knob.

What model Tone pro does this model use?

Carl N.

These models do not use TonePros bridges, these will be OEM Tune-o-matic bridges

I just bought one two days ago. What a beast! I've never found a guitar that good at that price range. Very happy with is so far. Can you tell us how to decipher the serial numbers?

Carl N.

glad you enjoy it, the first two numbers will be the year in which it was made, hope this helps

Any word on when these will hit AMS? Have one ordered and still waiting on Esp to send them out

Carl N.

It would be best to inquire with your dealer as to when they would be due to receive shipments

Dennis A.

I have and they are waiting on update from ESP
