What we say:
ESP want left-handed players to join in the fun with this Southpaw version of their enormously successful Eclipse model.
ESP are not exactly being subtle with the name of this beautiful Eclipse model! Calling it the Lemon Drop is a direct reference to a very famous singlecut once owned by Peter Green, then Gary Moore and now Kirk Hammett! It is a legendary instrument and ESP have used it as inspiration to create a wonderfully affordable tribute that is a great instrument in its own right.
In terms of woods and construction, the EC-256FM LH Lemon Drop adheres to ESP’s tried and tested standards: A Mahogany body gets a Flamed Maple top and is joined with a glued in Mahogany neck. A 24.75” scale length and Rosewood fingerboard keep this firmly in classic territory.
That Flame top is well figured and attractive to look at: the iconic ‘Lemon Drop’ colour (the original inspiration was a Heritage Sunburst that had faded to leave only the light Amber shade) is well matched and looks the part.
A pair of ESP-designed humbuckers impart a nice mix of vintage sustain and modern crunch.
This affordable guitar impresses: it is in no way supposed to be a replica of the Peter Green guitar but more a full-on LTD model with a finish that tips a sly wink to those who know. It’s a great gigging instrument with a cool look.
