Crafted at our ESP USA facility in Southern California, the USA V-II FR takes the aggressive offset V shape to an entire new level of quality and playability. Built with neck-thru-body construction for the ultimate in sustain, it offers an extra-thin U-shaped three-piece maple neck with mahogany wings and optional premier-quality figured-wood tops, including flamed maple and quilted maple with a variety of amazing translucent gloss and satin finishes to choose from. The USA V-II FR includes an ebony fingerboard with offset abalone dot inlays.

The parts and components on the USA V-II FR are second to none, and include 24 extra-jumbo Jescar stainless steel frets, an Original Floyd Rose floating tremolo, Sperzel Trim-Lok, Schaller strap locks, and a variety of high-end Seymour Duncan or EMG pickups, with a push-pull coil split control on the tone knob for passive pickup models. The USA V-II FR includes a high-quality ESP USA form-fitting hard shell case.

FEATURES

Graphite Neck Reinforcement Bars

Get maximum strength and stability from your guitar’s neck, with higher long-term reliability. All ESP USA models are made with two high-strength bars of carbon fiber.

Figured Top with Natural Masked Pinstriping

On the ESP USA V-II, the color line at the edge of the contour on the guitar’s figured top helps highlight the beauty of the wood and the body shape, providing for a great-looking contrast between the guitar’s color, natural figured top, and mahogany back all at once.

Deep Dish Jack

In addition to looking sleek, the Deep Dish jack installed on ESP USA models has the added benefit of providing the depth and angle of the cable to be easily looped around the player’s strap to better protect the cable from crimps or other damage.
