M-II HARDTAIL LACEWOOD

LIMITED EDITION

$3,299
Limited to 25 pieces
The master luthiers at our ESP USA Shop in Southern California occasionally create special limited-edition versions of these masterfully-built instruments. With the ESP USA M-II Hardtail Lacewood, you get the visual beauty of a hand-selected, figured lacewood top, highlighted by a layer of walnut underneath. The guitar’s body is swamp ash, offering the best of both worlds with comfortable playing weight and excellent resonance. It offers a quarter-sawn, satin-finished, extra-thin maple neck, and a maple fingerboard with 24 extra-jumbo Jescar FW57110 frets. A Hipshot fixed bridge with string-thru-body design offers excellent stability and sustain. The USA M-II Hardtail Lacewood includes Seymour Duncan’s high-end Saturday Night Special Humbucker pickup set, with Alnico 4 magnets to deliver the desirable muscular, '70s “overbuilt”, yet clear tones you want.

FEATURES

SWAMP ASH BODY

Some of the most acclaimed guitars in history have taken advantage of the comfortable weight and wonderful resonant sound of a swamp ash body, with a broad figured grain that looks terrific in its natural gloss finish.

HAND NUMBERED

Each ESP USA limited edition model is hand numbered by our builders, making them valuable for both their excellent musical performance and their collectibility.

SEYMOUR DUNCAN PICKUPS

The Saturday Night Special Humbucker pickup set gives you the perfect ‘70s humbucker vibe, using Alnico 4 magnets to deliver a muscular tone in the bridge and a clear, articulate neck pickup sound.
