Edwards ESP Japan E-LP-92SD QM Translucent Black



Here's another superb guitar from Edwards ESP. Usual top quality build and specs from this great guitar builder. Mahogany body with quilted Maple top, Mahogany neck & USA Seymour Duncan pickups.

Edwards guitars are made in Japan by ESP. You won't see very many in the UK & every one of those I have seen has been an import. As far as I am aware, Edwards guitars are generally close replicas of USA guitars & as such, they are just made for the Japanese domestic market. What I will say about them is that they are built to a really high standard & not only that, they use good woods (Ash/Alder/Mahogany etc) and are usually fitted with USA pickups & electrics (CTS pots & switches) and Japanese GOTOH hardwear. The Edwards Les Paul range are always popular & they never hang around very long.

This particular guitar is finished in a lovely translucent back. It's difficult to show in the photos but the figuring on the Maple top really shows through nicely. This guitar has hardly been used  and there are no visible marks, dents or scratched that I can see. Just some light playing marks. The frets show no visible wear & the guitar plays really well.

Please also check out the awesome demo video at the foot of the page. Recorded by session guitarist & friend Rob Burrows, it gives a quick taster of how this guitar can sound

Hard Case

As said many times, all my guitars come shipped in a new black hard case which is included in the price. I find this is the safest way to avoid damage in transit. This case is a nice new fitted one from Thomann in Germany.  Alternatively, if you are collecting the guitar and, like some buyers have cases coming out of their ears, that's no problem, I'll adjust the price (usually around a £30 discount) and I can usually find you an old gigbag to take the guitar away in. The only hard and fast rule I have is that i won't ship a guitar in a gigbag
