$499.00
(U.S. Only)

Extended range guitars don’t have to cost an arm and a leg to be great. The LTD EC-257 (seven-string) and EC-258 (eight-string) guitars are affordable for just about any musician, and allow you to explore the depths of lower pitches for today’s modern sounds in metal, progressive rock and more. The EC-257 features a set of acclaimed ESP Designed LH-150 pickups, with a push-pull coil tap on the tone knob, and a TOM bridge and tailpiece. The EC-258, outfitted with a hardtail LTD fixed bridge, includes ESP Designed LH-308 pickups for this 8-string guitar that goes all the way down to F# in standard tuning. Both guitars offer comfortable mahogany bodies, three-piece mahogany necks, and roasted jatoba fingerboards with 22 extra-jumbo frets. Both are available in Black Satin finish.

I would really love to see this model in a left handed model in the $1200.00 to $1600.00 price range and quality.  And with a locking bridge and a locking tuners.

Sincerely,

What happened to the EC 1008?

 

I am nervous about buying any guitar under $700 after testing several from different makers, That price point seems to be my cut off for better quality and comfortable feel. Again, that's just me.

Unfortunately the EC-1008 is no longer available, some dealers may still have these available within their stores though.

No wonder this guitar was so tough to get a hold of, it’s f$&@ing beautiful!

Evan S.

Love the EC-258, not only is it a beautiful “Les Paul Gibson” body style in sleek black satin, it has a great feel that’s really intuitive to metal players of 6 and 7 strings, you’ll love the raw power of this axe!

Carl N.

glad you enjoy it

Another good axe for a great price.
