ESP Ltd Elite Left Handed Guitars

Neal Beedie April 30, 2013 3

Many of you will have no doubt heard about ESP’s new LTD Elite range – but which ones are available left handed?  Well, all of them actually… (pretty much).

The new Elite range falls somewhere in between the standard Ltd range and the ESP range in terms of quality.  All Elite guitars are produced in the same Japanese factory by the same luthiers who produce the higher end ESP range.

ESP Ltd Elite Series Left Handed Guitars

Okay, so maybe we don’t get every single model in every single configuration and color.  But we do get to at least the choice of one model from each series (or two in the case of the ST-1).

    are these LTD elite series like a replacement for ESP Edwards for the western market?
    at least judging by the price it would seem so

    “Raindeer Blue” is the stupidest color name I’ve heard of! I’ve seen plenty of raindeers in my days, and they sure aren’t blue.

    But oh: It sounds cool…and the guitars all look really nice.
