Edwards ESP Japan  E-LP-113LTC  & new fitted Hard Case

Japanese Import

Edwards guitars are built by ESP in Japan. Regular visitors to this site will know that I am a big fan of Edwards guitars. They make excellent copies of Gibsons & Fenders. As such they aren't available outside of Japan so the only way to get one is to import it. This has got more and more difficult and is pretty impossible at the moment if you want a guitar with a Rosewood fretboard. Luckily, as this is a superb copy of a Les Paul Custom, Edwards have included a nice Ebony fretboard on this guitar to go along with the GOTOH hardwear and USA Seymour Duncan pickups. It truly is a gem and at around a quarter of the cost of an  LPC it is well worth considering

This particular guitar has a satin finish, is in fantastic condition and is all original. The only marks I could find are a few scratches on the back obviously caused by a buckle. Otherwise the guitar is in almost new condition. If you look at the gallery photos you can see that the plastic film is still in place on the control covers, the trussrod cover and even the pickguard. The gold hardwear is unblemished & the guitar has the classic combination of  Seymour Duncan SH1-N & SH4-B pickups

The guitar plays superbly with nice low action

Hard Case

As said many times, all my guitars come shipped in a new black fitted hard case which is included in the price. I find this is the safest way to avoid damage in transit. Alternatively, if you are collecting the guitar and, like some buyers have cases coming out of their ears, that's no problem, I'll adjust the price (usually around a £30 discount) and I can usually find you an old gigbag to take the guitar away in. The only hard and fast rule I have is that I won't ship a guitar in a gigbag
