  • The ESP LTD EC-257 Black Satin 7 String is a mean riffing machine. It comes complete with a 3 piece mahogany set neck and mahogany body, delivering value for money that you just won't find elsewhere. The single cut design has a 25.5" scale length due to the extended range of a 7 string guitar, but it's the refinements that are where ESP really shine.

    The ESP LTD EC-257 has some well placed contours in the body and sharpened edges, the Eclipse is less 'clunky' than its competition. With a TOM style bridge and tailpiece and two humbuckers, it's absolutely brilliant. If you are looking for a 7 string guitar with a great price and a unique rock pedigree, this must be on your list!


LH-150 Humbucking Pickups

  • With this style of guitar, 2 humbuckers is the classic go-to look. To really dial in a thick, creamy tone then you can't go too far wrong with these. For everything from distorted rock styles to warm cleans, these will cover it all. A coil split also opens up some single-coil spank too!

Classic Mahogany Construction

  • It's important to get things right on affordable guitars and ESP have done just that with this EC-257. A proper mahogany body, with a super stable 3 piece mahogany neck provides the foundation for great mid-range focused tone.

Slim, Fast Neck Profile

  • The Eclipse's Thin U shaped neck is slender, but not so thin that it feels like there's no support. Somewhat a classic feature to ESP guitars, it will satisfy both the guitarist new to the brand or someone who is well accustomed to the sleek neck shape. It is appreciated even more here with it being a 7 string model, making it very comfortable even with the extra bit of width.
