2006 Edwards ESP Japan E-LP-92CD  Black & new fitted hard case



Here's another superb guitar from Edwards ESP. A lovely Les Paul Custom copy. Usual top quality build and specs from this great guitar builder. Mahogany body with 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 model is a Les Paul Custom copy with Mahogany body & neck & a carved Maple top & Ebony fretboard with block Pearloid markers. The pickups are USA Seymour Duncan SH-1n & SH-4b & the hardwear is excellent Japanese GOTOH all finished in gold. The guitar body, neck & headstock are all bound. The guitar is around 15 years old but the frets are excellent as is the overall condition. There is some chipped lacquer on the back of the neck (see gallery photos) but it doesn't interfere with playing & you can barely feel it. There are a few small scratches on the body & pickguard consistent with use & there is a little tarnishing on the gold hardwear in places but all of this is consistent with age. The guitar has been properly "played in" and it plays & sounds great. Lots of sustain & nice low action

All in all it's an excellent guitar from ESP that you probably won't find here in the UK

Hard Case

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

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.
