Overview

A full range of sounds at your fingertips.

Extended range guitars don’t have to cost an arm and a leg to be great. The LTD EC-257 (seven-string) and EC-258 (eight-string) guitars are affordable for just about any musician, and allow you to explore the depths of lower pitches for today’s modern sounds.

These guitars feature excellent ESP Designed pickups, comfortable mahogany bodies, three-piece mahogany necks, and roasted jatoba fingerboards with 22 extra-jumbo frets. The EC-257 offers a TOM bridge and tailpiece, while the EC-258 features a hardtail design. Both are available in Black Satin finish. Case sold separately.
