This is my failed attempt to play something different than funk, blues or jazz on something different than my Stripped 58 or telecaster.

It’s a lovely guitar for what it is supposed to do – to rip heads off.

Let’s check the specs, shall we?

·        Body: Solid

·        Body Material: Alder

·        Number of Strings: 6 String

·        Body Color: Black

·        Pickups: EMG

·        Pickup Switch: 3 way

·        Fingerboard: Rosewood

·        Neck Material: Maple

·        Number of Frets: 24

·        Dexterity: Right-Handed

·        Guitar Scale: 25.5 inch

·        Floyd Rose

·        Condition: 8.5 out of 10

·        Made in JAPAN

 

Who is it good for?

·        Kirk Hammett (bad joke)

·        Metalheads…. duh

·        Hard rock guys who love heavy riffing

·        Shredders who need fast neck with 24 frets

·        Superstrat lovers

·        EMG aficionados

·        Guys in Metallica tribute band

 

Who is it not that good for?

·        Me

·        Blues players who want to nail that B.B.King sound

·        Jazz players who watched Whiplash at least 10 times

·        Guys in Megadeth tribute band




 




Comes with 


Priced to sell…999 GBP (yes, I can’t find my pound sign on the keyboard) including shipping. That’s as much as a LTD.

Guitar will be professionally shipped (unlike my guitar playing) (bad joke) (stop using brackets) with love and care from Sofia, Bulgaria. 

Thanks for looking.

    Thanks for everything, including the £ sign, it's a bit too late to use it and look professional.

    That's a damn good price for a full fat Japanese ESP.

    Nice Xmas tree as well.

    Now this is one of the very few FS threads on here that manages to get my heart beating!

    2001 model according to the serial number, the quality of these ESPs are astounding. The neck has the perfect profile with a satin finish that is a pleasure to hold. Plus it’s got the bonus of having a proper “ESP” logo on the headstock!

    If I didn’t have one already you’d probably have my money by now.

    And for those of you who are not Metallica fans, this is basically an M-II with an extra volume and tone control, and cool as f**k fretboard inlays  ;)

    Thanks, I did the photo-session at the office. The guitar is still here, never bought it home. A photo from my desk:



    I will tell our Office Manager that you like the tree. :)

    Thanks, mate! You definitely know your stuff, yes, it is 2001 model and yes, the neck has a very satin and fast feeling. 

    Didn't know that it has a proper ESP logo - thanks for that!

    By proper ESP logo I mean you can't actually get "ESP" on the headstocks of new Japanese ESPs any more unless you order from the custom shop. The standard series now have "E-II" on the headstock instead. No idea why they decided to rebrand... but it does mean "ESP" headstocks will probably become a collector's item in the future!

    what a strange move...  E-II  .. would have been better to put Grassroots on it instead lol
    My trading feedback

    is it crazy how saying sentences backwards creates backwards sentences saying how crazy it is?

    As we all know, the best way to improve our soloing skills is by buying gear instead of practicing.

    So why don't you buy this piece of wood and become a better guitar player instantly?
