EC-256FM

DARK BROWN SUNBURST

$449.00

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.

Dario M.

Hello, what’s Pole the spacing for the bridge pickup? Standard 48mm or  Trem spaced 52mm?

Carl N.

Hey Dario, these will have standard spacing, as there is no trem on this instrument.

Ho acquistato un'altra LTD EC-256 poiché ne ho già una Made in Vietnam e ne sono molto soddisfatto. Purtroppo questa nuova chitarra è Made in China e la qualità non è nemmeno paragonabile a quella Made in Vietnam. Posseggo altre 2 Ltd, nessuna delle quali Made in China e devo dire di esserne soddisfatto. La mia prossima chitarra sarà un'altra Ltd, ma solo quando torneranno al sito di produzione precedente. Purtroppo la qualità cinese si vede tutta e questo mi dispiace molto, perché ho sempre reputato le Ltd delle ottime chitarre... fino al mio ultimo acquisto...

Why anyone would buy an Epiphone LP instead of this is a mystery to me.

Alexandre C.

Maybe they want not as good looking, shitty sounding and plastic feeling guitars... But yeah, no reason at all to not choose an EC over an Epiphone.

What gauge strings are recommended?

Todd B. ESP

Hi Michael, the gauge of string is up to you. Many players prefer a heavier or lighter set based on their playing style and tuning/setup preference. Our standard recommended gauge that we install at the factory is Daddario XL110 (10-46) gauge. Hope that helps.
