Edwards ESP "Potbelly" E-PO-100D "Amber Cherry Sunburst" & used hard case


This guitar is now sold


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 & upgraded "Bare Knuckle - Cold Sweat" pickups which sound amazing and have been installed to allow split coil use via a push/pull volume pot.

This is the first "Potbelly" I have owned and I actually picked it up in the UK although it will have been imported at some stage as the Edwards range are not sold outside Japan. The Potbelly are similar to a PRS in shape & build but I think that the upper horn is slightly larger. The guitar plays fantastically well & although I'm not really a "pickup" person, these Bare Knuckle Cold Sweat Humbuckers sound amazing. The split coil option sounds great for rhythm playing too

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 Japanese GOTOH hardwear. This one also has the pickup upgrade as stated.

This particular guitar is finished in a lovely "Amber Cherry Sunburst". It has a real "Tiger Stripe" look & the finish is pretty stunning. This guitar has been well cared for and only has the odd small scratch and a few minute dents, mainly on the rear of the body. The frets show no indents

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 hard case which is included in the price. I find this is the safest way to avoid damage in transit. This case is a used rectangular moulded plastic hard case. 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
