The EC-256 is a no-nonsense rock & roll workhorse with a traditional vibe. This classic single cutaway design features an all-mahogany body. The electronics boasts a pair of ESP LH-150 humbuckers. The EC-256 will deliver old-school tone with power to spare. Just plug in and turn it up. The simplified controls include a master volume for each pickup, and a single master tone control. The LTD EC-256 Eclipse is a serious axe that would be a perfect fit any rock & roll arsenal.

The set-in mahogany 24-3/4"-scale neck has been carved into an ultra-fast thin profile and topped with 22 Extra Jumbo frets on a rosewood fingerboard for extremely fast playability and effortless string-bending. Finally, the hardware includes a Tune-o-Matic bridge that will stabilize tuning and withstand anything you can dish out. The ESP LTD EC-256 Electric Guitar is built to rock. Case not included.

Absolutely horrible.


from Springfield, OR



    • Severe fret buzz, poor finish, poor sound.

    Best Uses

      I've just received the guitar and have played and it is just horrible. Aesthetically, the guitar is very good looking. The quality, or lack thereof, is appalling, stains and prints on arrival. Play terribly as well. Fret buzz is just absolutely insane, practically unplayable. There is almost no sustain present due to such high amounts of fret buzz. I completely regret this purchase. Stick with Ibanez, never had a problem with them and always have superb quality, far beyond ESP/LTD.
