2012 Edwards E-LP-98 Custom. Ebony & fitted hard case

Japanese Import

Regular visitors to Whitstable guitars will know that Edwards guitars are favourite of mine. Edwards are a division of the ESP company in Japan which make high end traditional guitars (Strats, Teles, Les Pauls etc) Due to the current restriction on Rosewood imports, I am restricted to either Maple or Ebony fretboards. As this is an excellent copy of a Les Paul Custom, it has an Ebony fretboard making it possible to import it. They really are worth the effort too. Built to a high specification with GOTOH tuners & hardwear & USA Seymour Duncan pickups, they tick every single box for me!

This particular guitar is in fantastic condition, no dents, scrapes or scratches & with protective film still on the pickguard, trussrod cover & back plates. It's hardly been used. It has had some straplock buttons fitted but I can change those if you don't use them, just let me know

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

If you are further interested in this guitar, you can either email me with any queries & I'll do my best to get back to you within 24 hours.

Or, you can buy easily and safely using the Paypal "buy now" button. Don't forget to select the right option using the drop down menu on price, i.e. Collection, UK shipping or EU shipping. If in doubt, please email me first as Highlands & Islands can sometimes be a little dearer for shipping
