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!

Für den Preis top
boppel, 22.01.2020
Sie tut genau das, was sie soll: 8 Saiten haben.
Fühlt sich finde ich gut an, ist allerdings durch das Satin finish äußerst rutschig - gleitet einem also beim Spielen im Sitzen durchaus weg.

Sound ist ok - aber bei derartig tiefer Stimmung macht ohnehin alles hinter der Gitarre den feinen Unterschied,

Einziger Makel: die Stimmmechanik ist wirklich nicht die beste. Nachstimmen leider häufiger notwendig als bei anderen Gitarren mit fixem Steg.

une 8 cordes correcte
Christophe M., 11.10.2019
LTD 8 cordes correcte, bonne finition, l'accordage tien bien et le son est pas mal, elle est pas trop difficile à jouer mais un peu lourde, parfait pour jouer du métal, la couleur satin donne un rendu propre facile à nettoyer. le prix est très intéressant pour une guitare comme ça, très satisfait de mon achat, je recommande cette guitare

Sehr gutes Preis-/Leistungsverhältnis
De Goll, 10.08.2018
Die LTD EC-258 ist in mein Blickfeld geraten, da auf dem ersten Blick alles gepasst hat.

Nachdem das gute Stück bei mir angekommen war, bin ich zum Schluss gekommen, dass sie wirklich alle Erwartungen eingehalten und teilweise übertroffen hat. Der Sound ist super. Insbesondere den Push-/Pull-Poti empfinde ich als klasse Idee, da er der 8-Saiter interessante Sound-Facetten verleiht.

Da ich bisher nur sporadisch in verschiedenen Musikläden/-häusern 8-Saiter-Gitarren angespielt habe und mich das Spielgefühl bei diesen Exemplaren nicht ganz so vom Hocker gehauen hat, hat mein Fokus vor allem auf diesem Aspekt gelegen. Zu meiner Freude ist die Bespielbarkeit sehr gut.

Auch zu Punkten wie der Verarbeitung kann ich nur meinen Daumen nach oben recken.

Das Preis-/Leistungsverhältnis ist absolut top und aus diesem Grund kann ich die LTD EC-258 nur wärmstens empfehlen.
