      Why a 4?

      By Brian

      from Indianapolis, Indiana

      About Me Experienced

      Comments about ESP LTD EC-256FM Electric Guitar:

      I gave it a four because it is exactly what I expected. And that is: An inexpensive, well build road warrior, that needs better pickups (EMG 61/80 would be my choice), and won't cause me to lose sleep if someone steals it. I don't want it stolen, I'm just saying, it's a really nice looking, well built, good playing, road banger, that would easily be 'big gig worthy' with upgraded pickups. That's exactly what I expected it would be, and that's exactly what it is. Therefore, a 4. Compared to it's EC-1000 brother, it's a 2.

      Loved it!

      By Michael Thompson

      from Kingman, IN

      Comments about ESP LTD EC-256FM Electric Guitar:

      I went to guitar center to exchange my pedalboard and while i was waiting to get things sorted out, i went and picked this guy up. I've had my eyes on the eclipse-401 for a while, so I was curious to how it's little brother would be. This was one of my favorite necks i've played on, thick enough to not feel like a toy, but still felt like i could go as fast or wherever i wanted. It was just one of those where once you touch it, it just fits. I was able to get some amazing cleans, especially with the coil tap. I was really impressed with how well it handled distortion and was able to comfortably handle a few slayer and killswitch riffs. Overall i loved how this guitar handled and had to double check the price, it is a beautiful instrument and incredibly versatile; probably the best bang for the buck i've found so far.
