A very popular, classic ESP model from the Ltd Standard Series, with absolutely professional features, but - as usual with the ESP Ltd guitars - priced in the budget category while offering an outstanding price-quality relation.Finish: See Thru Black Sunburst, with black nickel hardware.Body: Mahogany.Top: Flame maple - with an amazing look of a really rare, perfect, exceptional 3D-quality - please see the pictures - however, they can hardly demonstrate the deep and beauty of the quilt at all: In reality, the instrument's top looks even much more spectacular. Many other major guitar manufacturers would easily ask more then the cost of this whole instrument, alone as an upcharge for a top of comparable quality. Neck: Mahogany. "Thin U" neck profile. Set neck construction. This enables a very good sustain, an easy access to the upper frets, and of course a full, "fat" tone.Scale: 24.75" - like Gibson Les Paul, SG, Explorer etc., i.e. a 2 cm shorter scale than for instance a Stratocaster, resulting in better playability even with thicker string gauges.Fretboard: Rosewood, with ESP Custom „Flag“ inlays. Bindings: "White Multi-Ply" (body, neck and headstock). A very noble looking instrument!Frets: 24, XJ (Jumbo) - with a perfect fretjob, another famous feature of ESP instruments.Nut: 42 mm - Standard.Headstock: ESP Eclipse-Style - matching the body finish.Tuners: Orig. Grover.Bridge: Non-tremolo, Tune-o-matic with stoptail. Lots of sustain and helps to stay in tune, as well.Pickups: EMG 81/60 active humbuckers. This classic Metallica combination is very versatile, provides lots of gain for aggressive sounds, fits well for downtuning and is absolutely quiet, due to its active design.Also available with EMG 81/81 or EMG 81/85 for a moderate upcharge, please just inquire.Alternatively, upon request of the purchaser, we can also perform a professional installation of a different pickup combination, e.g. any DiMarzio, EMG or Seymour Duncan etc. (Only a small upcharge per pickup swap will be required). Furthermore, we offer installation of active boost and EQ circuits like EMG Afterburner, PA-2, SPC, RPC, VMC, EXG etc. Please ask for details if interested.Electronics: 2x volume, 1x tone, 3-way toggle switch.Absolutely outstanding quality of selected woods, craftsmanship, playability and sound!
