Huge humbucking tone, easy-play scale length, and sharp looks with a tiny price tag.

The ESP EC-50 Electric Guitar is one of the best values in a serious, hard-rocking electric guitar. The EC-50 sports a pair of ESP LH-150 pickups that generate super sustained distortion. Maple neck with rosewood fretboard on a basswood body provides great resonance while the shorter 24-3/4" scale makes note bending a breeze.

    As reviewed by Juan Cardona on 1/6/2012

    I've owned one of these EC-50 for 4-5 yrs... can't remember exactly. The neck is very comfortable.. the smaller frets are great for playing fast licks, but become imposibly small at the last 2 frets (out of 24). The pick-ups are beyond accetable at this price range, but don't compare to the tone you get from the cheapest fenders or even some Squires. I own this guitar, a Strat and a Jaguar. They each have a diferent "personality" and what I ended up doing with this ESP is putting .11 strings on it to expose as much of its tonal features as possible. The hardware is decent in quality and over-all the guitar is durable and can take a beating. I've used it in a couple of gigs and at church, but in places where the accoustics let the tone of your instrument shine, nothing beats my other two guitars. I would recommend this guitar to anyone looking for a guitar in the 200 range that is playable out of the box. However, don't buy blindly. At this price range Quality control is questionable, so you need to walk into the store, try quite a few guitars and buy the one the sounds good, plays good and has no major finish flaws.

    I haven't touched a stringed instrument in 20 years. I am now committed to so many famil-related events that time is precious and efficiency is a must. I didn't want to commit a lot of money to start over again and but with that in mind I still spent weeks during my lunch hour hunting for a deal thinking pawn shops, craiglist, and ebay were the way to go. I found nothing that was in the shape I expected it to be in or the cost I expected the purcahse price to be given the item's condition. In hindsight I shouldn't have bothered. I should have just purchased this guitar saving time AND money. It was near flawless when I received it. Setup was so good Guitar Center's on-site luthier tried to improve upon the setup but admitted he couldn't do much better because it was setup so well already from the factory. The action is just right for this "beginner" and the sound options are very flexible. The bolt-on neck design is very smooth vs comparable Fender's with their blocky neck/body joint. The body shape fits just right when playing seated. It's balanced well, solid, internally well-finished, and I rarely spend time tuning it. Now, do I lust for something better? Sure! Who wouldn't love the something at the premium end of the guitar spectrum. But I can't justify the cost at this point given my experience. When considering price/performance, this guitar's a no-brainer as long as you're comfortable handling it.

    This guitar is a great value. THE pickups are great,great tone and sustain. The action was a little to high but once lowered it is fantastic. I love the finish on the guitar,mine has the beautiful sparkling red finish,which looks alsome under lights. I love this guitar more every day.
