The LTD SC-20 celebrates the 20th anniversary of influential and innovative guitarist Stephen Carpenter (Deftones) getting his first ESP Signature Series guitar. It’s a six-string model, harkening back to Stef’s early days with ESP. A neck-thru-body design, the SC-20 offers a three-piece maple neck with alder sides in Sonic Blue finish, as well as a Macassar ebony fingerboard with glow in the dark side markers. It includes components such as a Seymour Duncan JB pickup paired with ESP Designed LH-150N and LS-120N pickups, a TonePros locking TOM bridge with string-thru-body, and LTD locking tuners.

I wish that the SC-20 would've come out more like the OG src6 or the 7 string version (pictured above) or even that single humbucker 7 string custom shop pictured above. I know that the LTD's are made in a different factory than the ESP's therefore the finishes will have a different outcome...that's why I'm glad that I'll be able to to get my Custom Shop to look more like the 7 string or 6 string Stephen signatures or the single humbucker 7 string....

Carl N.

cool, thanks for sharing!
