2007 Edwards ESP Japan E-LP-85SD Vintage Honeyburst & new fitted hard case
Here's another superb guitar from Edwards ESP. Usual top quality build and specs from this great guitar builder. Mahogany body with quilted Maple top, Mahogany neck & USA Seymour Duncan pickups.
Edwards guitars are made in Japan by ESP. You won't see very many in the UK & every one of those I have seen has been an import. As far as I am aware, Edwards guitars are generally close replicas of USA guitars & as such, they are just made for the Japanese domestic market. What I will say about them is that they are built to a really high standard & not only that, they use good woods (Ash/Alder/Mahogany etc) and are usually fitted with USA pickups & electrics (CTS pots & switches) and Japanese GOTOH hardwear. The Edwards Les Paul range are always popular & they never hang around very long.
This particular guitar is from 2007 is finished in a lovely Vintage Honeyburst. Overall the condition is good but it had a few knocks by the lower strap button. These have been filled and smoothed but the lower price of this guitar which would usually be listed around £680 reflects this. There is a little tarnishing to the nickel parts but this looks very natural & is expected with age. Otherwise it's excellent. Please check out the gallery photos which shows the damage post repair. The figuring on the Maple top looks great with the Honeyburst finish. The frets show no visible wear & the guitar plays really well.
Please also check out the awesome demo video at the foot of the page. Recorded by session guitarist & friend Rob Burrows, it gives a quick taster of how this guitar can sound. In the video he's playing a black version of the same guitar.

All in all it's an excellent guitar from ESP that you probably won't find here in the UK
As said many times, all my guitars come shipped in a new black hard case which is included in the price. I find this is the safest way to avoid damage in transit. This case is a nice new fitted one from Thomann in Germany. 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
