Hey guys,


Long story short... I'm a bit of an RR fanboy so when I found this Edwards E-LP-98LTC through Jauce, I couldn't pass it up.





But yeah, basically these things are made by ESP. Mahogany back, 1 piece mahogany neck and an Ebony fingerboard. They come stock with Duncan pickups (this particular guitar comes with a JB and a 59 set IIRC) and gotoh hardware. The guitar didn't come with a case but it was packed really well and came in one piece so I can't complain.





The guitar feels great. The neck isn't as fat as a 59 style profile but it's really comfy. It has bigger shoulders compared to my other LP guitar (a '59 style LP copy).

It's a little on the heavy side (I didn't bother weighing it yet) but it balances really nice with a strap. Frets are in good condition and the neck is fine. No twists or anything. Fret edge on the 11th fret is a bit sharp but no biggie. Plays really smooth. Got the action really low and it's ripping. Pretty sure the guitar is set up for 9s so I may or may not change them.


Aging on the hardware and covers are sweet. The toggle washer is tarnished as shit. Finish is great, no scratches. Some small discoloration on the headstock but they're literally pin sized and they look pretty cool. Top needs a good clean though.


Sound wise, the thing is killer. Bridge pup is dark and crunchy and the neck is pretty clear surprisingly. Overall really happy with this guitar. I'll probably be keeping it for a while.


Here's the guitar after the makeover








EDIT: Sorry about that wonky pointer. I didn't even notice that until now

Here's a reuploaded clippy since YouTube sucks.

Oh that is a nice one, if I were ever to buy a Les Paul styled guitar it would be something very similar!

I'll have to put the Classic T models on my to-try list. Shame the finish options there are Anachronism Gold, Nuclear Waste and Aged Clown, because in principle the plaintop is right up my alley.

Might be 1 piece. I'm not really sure of the spec tbh so I just assumed it was 2 piece


Thanks. I was gonna play some Ratt for you guys but I figured 'when in Rome'...

Hot! Looks great with all the gold trim. HNGD.


Thanks. I was going for the RR LP vibe so you can thank him for that look.

A White Marshall *and* a polka dot V.





I had one of those things years ago. I should've kept it.


Anywho, none of the gold switch tips I had fit so I have a few more on the way. Hopefully they fit!

Black, dspellman's least favorite. I have a Black Tux Tele so the "look" will be similar.





See I feel like that wouldn't look too bad. Almost like a John Sykes model or something.

Tbh, I haven't had the urge to play an LP for years, but seeing this makes me feel like dusting off my old Epi Standard. Coincidentally, mine has a JB in the bridge as well

You totally should man. I love whipping out guitars that I haven't played in a while and giving them a bit of attention.

i dunno. i heard some rumblings a while after i got mine that they were starting to use 2-piece, so not that it makes a massive amount of difference (if any) if the wood is good.

and lol

Works great. Nothing frets out or anything on bends. Guitar is intonated right too.
