Hola. Tengo una pastillas seymour duncan hot rodded humbuckers que quisiera instalar y no encuentro el diagrama de conexiones en la web de las pastillas ESP LH 150N y 150B de esta guitarra. Me han regalado esta guitarra hace poco tiempo y he de decir que estoy impresionado lo bien que funciona y lo fina pero robusta que es y la resonancia que tiene además de lo bonita que es. Enhorabuena. Un saludo.

Quick Questiion: Why do some EC-256 models have the model number on the 12th fret, but others don't ?

I believe FM indicates Flame Maple top.

I just got this model and I'm absolutely loving it. It plays, feels and sounds like a dream even when compared to more expensive instruments.


Amazing work guys.
