My guitar doesn’t have the model on the neck what does that mean also with a fender champion amp and this guitar can I get a decent Metallica tone out of it

Todd B. ESP

Hi Chase, We have been removing model names from the fingerboard. so  you received our most up to date version (we still have to update our website photo). I think a key thing to getting Metallica's tone is using EMG active pickups and a good quality amp with high gain. You should probably try using some distortion foot pedal or effects on top of your amp. I suggest going on our ESP Forum and you can get more suggestions from our users on getting good tones. good luck.

Very nice guitar indeed. Question - can the EC-10 fit in the EC Guitar Form-Fit Case (e.g. the one included with the Ltd James Hetfield Iron Cross)?

Todd B. ESP

Hi Matthew, Yes the EC-10 has the same body perimeter but it is a thinner body without arch. It will fit in this case if you would like a hardshell case.

Are the EC-50 out of line? And the new EC-10 with hardwood fingerboard as good as the EC-50?

Todd B. ESP

Hi Vitor, Yes the 50 series have been discontinued. The 10 series are very similar but more affordable. The fingerboard is used as a substitution for rosewood. It is a good alternative and comparable to the EC-50.

This looks like a 25.5" scale to me? Is that a typo?

Todd B. ESP

Hi Nathan,

The EC-10 is a 24.75" scale.
