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 in metal, progressive rock and more. The EC-257 features a set of acclaimed ESP Designed LH-150 pickups, with a push-pull coil tap on the tone knob, and a TOM bridge and tailpiece. The EC-258, outfitted with a hardtail LTD fixed bridge, includes ESP Designed LH-308 pickups for this 8-string guitar that goes all the way down to F# in standard tuning. Both guitars offer comfortable mahogany bodies, three-piece mahogany necks, and roasted jatoba fingerboards with 22 extra-jumbo frets. Both are available in Black Satin finish.
