What we say:

At A Glance:

The ESP LTD EC-256FM Cobalt Blue complete with a set neck, mahogany body and flame maple topped cap is value for money that you just won't find elsewhere. The single cut, 24.75" scale length design clearly takes inspiration from a classic model, but it's the refinements that are where ESP really shine. With some well placed contours in the body and sharpened edges, the Eclipse is less 'clunky' than it's competition. The mahogany body and maple cap combination handles all of the bite and attack needed, but with a prominent mid range to thicken up your tone. With a TOM style bridge and tailpiece and two covered humbuckers, it's absolutely brilliant.

Features We Love:

LH-150 Humbucking Pickups

With this style of guitar, a couple of nickel covered humbuckers just look right. 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!

Gorgeous Flame Maple Cap

Maple provides plenty of bite and attack tonally due to the denseness of the wood, but this flame also looks stunning. It's uniformed flame is striking, complimented with a translucent, highly glossed finish.

Slim, Fast Neck Profile

The Eclipse's slim shape neck is comfortable, but not so thin that it feels like there's no purchase. 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.


  • Classic look at a snip
  • Genuine mahogany body for mid range thump with a maple cap for high end articulation
  • Set neck construction for increased sustain and resonance

Stunning value for money, the only thing that seems odd is that the position of the tone controls do not reflect the position of the pickup they are related to...

John K. - 16/4/2021

Plays great, sounds great, looks great, not really much else to say!

Daniel S. - 25/3/2020

Excellent sound for being one of the cheaper les paul variants, great action and extremely comfortable to play with the thin form factor and light body compared to the bulkier les Paul's

Lee D. - 1/3/2020

It was what I wanted good guitar at any price
