Designed in collaboration with Death Angel guitarist Ted Aguilar, the ESP LTD Ted-Ec electric guitar equips you with the tools needed to play fast and aggressive metal. This sleek guitar features a neck-thru-body construction that enhances sustain and provides superb tonal transfer. The thin, U-shaped 3-piece mahogany neck offers effortless playability, while the Macassar ebony fingerboard boasts 24 extra-jumbo frets for lightning-fast lead playing. Powerful active EMG 81/60 pickups deliver the crunchy distortion and searing leads essential to metal. With its distinctive black and white esthetics, the Ted-Ec embodies Aguilar's iconic style.

Slay With a Neck-Thru-Body Design

The Ted-Ec's neck-thru-body construction provides excellent tonal transfer and resonance across its mahogany body and maple cap. This design also enhances sustain, letting your notes ring out strong. The thin, U-shaped 3-piece mahogany neck offers smooth playability, while a graphite reinforcement rod provides stability and prevents warping. With its 24.75" scale length and thin profile, the Ted-Ec gives you fast fretting access for nimble leads and intricate riffs.

Shred Faster With Extra-Jumbo Frets

Built for speed, the Macassar ebony fingerboard has 24 extra-jumbo frets for fluid and comfortable soloing across the neck. The thin profile provides ample space between each fret for quick chord changes and riffing. Mother-of-pearl dot inlays mark the fingerboard for accurate positioning. Combined with the neck-thru-body design, these features let your fingers fly up and down the neck with ease.

Crush With Active EMG Pickups

A set of active EMG 81/60 pickups delivers the aggressive tone essential for metal. The EMG 81 bridge pickup provides crushing distortion with powerful midrange punch and biting treble. The EMG 60 neck pickup balances this with singing leads. Together, these pickups give you the sonic artillery to play just like Ted Aguilar. Coil-splitting allows single-coil tones when you need more versatility.

Stand Out With Signature Aesthetics

The Ted-Ec's Black finish and white pickup covers give this guitar an instantly recognizable look inspired by Ted Aguilar himself. The recessed TOM bridge and white pearloid tuners continue the sleek black and white theme. And the included deluxe ESP hardshell case keeps your signature model safe on the road and ready to impress at your next gig.
