LTD by ESP Left Handed Guitars & Basses 2013

Neal Beedie January 27, 2013 15

ESP is a Japanese manufacturer of guitars, founded in 1975 by Hisatake Shibuya in Tokyo.   In 1996 ESP launched LTD, a new subsidiary brand which offered similar quality to the ESP range but at a more affordable price point.

LTD have definitely upped their game for 2013 by offering considerably more left handed models than in previous years.  The information below is taken from the 2013 ESP USA catalogue so expect availability to differ depending on where you live. Check back soon for an updated list as more guitars are announced.

    Seems like these company always try and push the color black on us lefties. It’s nice to see more color choices for a change. I can’t wait to order number 7.

      7 has actually been available here in the UK for a little while now. I guess it was popular enough that they decided to make it available to everyone else.

        Had no idea number 7 was available in the UK. It wasn’t the last time I scoured the internet for new lefty guitars (a while ago now I admit). Not sure whether to thank you or not for bringing this to my attention as am now battling with myself about whether to buy one or not :-) Can’t really justify the purchase right now but have always fancied something like this!

    I would also like to know where I can get the D-4 bass (or B-204) – but I think they will be available in the U.S. only?

    none of the links work :(

      You may need to go through the main website, which still works. For example the D-4 bass would be:

    Some how, some way, the EC401 is also available in black (gloss), but only in Canada (LAMusic.ca) and the UK (keymusic.com), but NOWHERE else. LAMusic does ship to the US though. I got mine and I love it. I don’t mind black, as long as it doesn’t have gold hardware.

    Any info about availability of the EC-401 in OW for Europe?

    I’ve just checked on keymusic : 899€ for a lefty EC-401, when the same guitar for right handed costs 689€? I know we shouldn’t always complain when they release new models, but come on this is a joke!!.
    On other websites the EC-1000 LH is currently offered for 899€ or less…

    Apparently some models from the Elite serie will be proposed in left-handed version.

    However I didn’t see the LH specification in the catalog..

    625 euros for the EC-401, what a difference!
