Out Of Stock
Up for sale, a 2013 Edwards by ESP model E-LP-135 electric guitar in excellent, 100% original condition and in perfect working order. An uncommon instrument made in Japan under ESP's "Edwards" banner, this guitar is a faithful iteration of the LP Custom platform with a genuine slab ebony fretboard, mahogany neck, mahogany body, and carved, heavily figured maple cap finished in an eye-catching pink gloss.

The guitar is loaded with the stock pair of USA-made Seymour Duncan humbuckers, with an SH-1 in the neck position and SH-4 at the bridge. The SH-1 neck pickup was designed in the spirit of the original PAF, with sweet singing sustain, wound to deliver full-sounding chords and midrange-forward attack. The SH-4 JB bridge pickup on the other hand is Duncan's original hot-rodded humbucker. The low end is full and powerful, the highs are crisp and detailed, and there’s an upper-midrange bump that adds crunch and chunk to heavy chords that translates to a singing, vocal-like quality when playing single notes or solos. The guitar weighs 9lbs 2oz, professionally setup here at Mike & Mike's Guitar Bar with 10-46 strings, low action, and spot-on intonation.

The mahogany neck has a medium C-shaped profile carve with modest shoulder at the nut and a hair more heft as you travel up the fretboard, measuring .840" deep at the 1st fret and .940" at the 12th. The genuine slab ebony fretboard has a 12" fretboard radius, adding to the articulation and glassy note attack of the instrument, with cream binding and pearloid block inlays. The stock medium jumbo frets are pristine, playing cleanly in every register with an optimally adjusted truss rod. The guitar conforms to traditional Gibson spec with a 24 3/4" scale length, and the bone nut measures 1 11/16" in width. The headstock is distinctive for retaining an "open book" shape and features gold Gotoh tuning machines with metal tulip buttons that turn smoothly and hold pitch as they should.

The electronics function as intended, with the factory-installed Seymour Duncan humbuckers wired to a three-way selector switch, with individual Volume and Tone knobs for each pickup. The ABR-1-style bridge and stoptail have plenty of shine with only light surface patina on the gold plating, and plastics include a quartet of witch hat cap knobs. The bookmatched quilted maple top has deep figuring, highlighted by a vibrant gloss pink finish, with a deeper cherry red on the back and sides. Cosmetic wear is limited to light scuffing in the clear coat of the gloss on the lower bout on the back, and just a few additional small dings and faint finish scratches on the body as a whole. The neck profile retains a smooth gloss finish.

A Gibson USA padded gigbag is included.
