ESP Unplugged: New LTD Xtone Acoustic-Electric Guitars

March 1, 2011

0.000.aaesp_acousticsYes, you read it correctly. After years of ESP customers asking the company to take the high-performance look and feel of their electric models and make equally cool acoustics, they've delivered in droves. The LTD Xtone AC-5E, AC-10E, AC-20E, and AC-30E will soon be available at ESP dealers.

All of the new LTD Xtone Series acoustic-electric models are designed with a highly-playable cutaway mini-jumbo shape. The AC-5E offers a spruce top with mahogany back and side materials, and offers a built-in ESP preamp with EQ and tuner. Finishes for the AC-5E include See-Thru Black Sunburst, See-Thru Blue Sunburst, and See-Thru Red Sunburst. The AC-10E adds accoutrements such as block pearloid/abalone inlays, abalone purfling, abalone rosette, and white binding on the body, neck, and headstock, and is available in Black, Pearl White, and Tobacco Sunburst finishes.

The AC-20E and AC-30E both take another step up by implementing a B-Band Transducer pickup and onboard preamp. The AC-20E is equipped with a T-35 preamp w/EQ and tuner. This guitar features an attractive flamed maple body top, along with sapelle back and sides. Available finishes for the AC-20E include See-Thru Blue, See-Thru Magenta, and See-Thru Green. The AC-30E is highlighted by a beautiful quilted maple top, back and sides. It includes a B-Band T-55 preamp w/EQ and tuner, and is being offered with three finishes: Honey Natural, Dark Brown Sunburst, and See-Thru Red.
