NGD: My first RZ(KH)

    I found it scouring Craigslist. Crazy good deal, it's an early '90s model, 1993 to be exact. Nothing plays better than an early '90s ESP, in my opinion.


    I present to you, the first of what I assume will be many, original Richard Kruspe signature guitars:

    She fits in beatifully. The pickguard is on order. I'm going to enjoy it just like this for now. I'll probably put the guard on in a few months. Or as soon as I get it. Depends how I feel.


    It sounds wonderful. Plays like a dream. I can't believe it's taken me this long to get one.
