2013 Edwards ESP Japan E-SE-100M & new hard case




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 are usually fitted with USA pickups & electrics (CTS pots & switches) and Japanese GOTOH hardwear.  That's a lot of guitar for the money!

The Edwards E-SE-100M is a fabulous Stratocaster from Edwards. With it's Seymour Duncan pickups, flatter 240R fretboard and satin finish against the tortoiseshell scratchplate & 2 tone vintage sunburst it really looks the business!

The guitar has a couple of tiny chips, and scratches but that is about it. It has been barely used and is fantastic value for a Japanese guitar. Here's the spec..

Thomann Black Hard Case 

Dual Mode Switch

You can easily switch between two modes. Normal mode where you can use the guitar as any other Stratocaster with the same pickups configuration or in Custom mode where, in the bridge & neck positions, the two adjacent pickups are heard "in series" so that gives a total of 7 different sounds.

Thomann Black Hard Case

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 can be upgraded to a very nice tweed one but these are an additional £12 each at present.Please contact me before purchasing if you would like this. 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.
