    NGD : Edwards E-LP-98LTC

    Direct from Ishibashi.
    (Great service, by the way)

    So yeah. I'm getting older, I guess. AND GAS is a bitch. So : It's LP time. Chris : you can laugh.
    I have conquered my "I don't want a TOM guitar" attitude (having the Schecter V-1 Limited helped that) AND i've ben admiring LP's forever. I wasn't sure at first when playing it, but then, I "broke" it in. I might be a LP guy, after all.

    Loving it. Rings for days. And it's heavy. I mean HEEEAVY. It feels solid as fuck.

    I can't believe I missed that much, keeping myself from buying LP's because of a few bad past experiences and prejudices.
    Anyway, I already know it's a keeper. One has to have an LP in his arsenal, right?

    Black & Gold.

    The neck carve is something which one would describe as being between a traditional "59" or "60's" type, with the general feel of a "59" but the apex of the curve being slightly flatter. It is eminently comfortable and is sure to appeal to a wide audience. The top carve of the Edwards guitars is similar to the ESP Eclipse in that the outer edges start to flare back out away from the body slightly. This is quite unique to ESP and Edwards and gives a very precise aesthetic and feeling of quality to the overall appearance and feel of the guitar.

    Looks awesome. Bonamassa had been feeling my Lp gas of late. I did but and Epi last year but it turned out to be a lemon of a guitar. Fretwork and finish was atrocious. Maybe Edwards would be a nice alternative

    I had the Black Beauty version of this guitar about 4 years ago. It was my first decent guitar and I really had no idea of how good it actually was. It was damn heavy too and felt so solid. I always get nostalgic and also a little sad whenever I see an Edwards like it. Amazing guitars for what you pay for. Congratulations.

    Congrats! Looks incredible.

    I can also vouch for Ishibashi. Bought my original YJM Strat off them and they were fantastic.
