Good but not ideal
Thomann gear , 21.12.2018
This guitar is great looking and it plays very good but because it is only a 26.5 scale length it can't tune 100% correctly and you can hear it. I like it but I can't love it for the reasons stated above. It also sounds great with the pickups that are stock inside of it. No complaints about anything other than it needs to get extended to 27" scale length ESP!

Very good price / performance ratio
De Goll, 10.08.2018
The LTD EC-258 has come into my field of vision because at first glance everything went well.

After the good piece arrived with me, I came to the conclusion that she has really met and exceeded all expectations. The sound is great. In particular, the push / pull poti I feel as a great idea, because he gives the 8-string interesting sound facets.

Since I have only sporadically played 8-string guitars in various music shops / houses and I did not really like the feel of these pieces, my focus was mainly on this aspect. To my delight, the playability is very good.

Even on points like processing, I can only stretch my thumbs up.

The price / performance ratio is absolutely great and for that reason I can highly recommend the LTD EC-258.
