Just picked mine up guys and I'm over the moon with it. Wouldn't change a thing. You nailed it with this one!!!!Thanks.

Carl N.

glad you're enjoying it and thanks for letting us know!


We ever going to see these for lefties? I'd buy this exactly as it is, or without fretboard inlays.  Throw in a hipshot, it's all over

1000 Pounds of Thrust Guitar

Man I want to see this guitar in every color and wood combo! Love single humbucker, neck through and string though!!!


I have one of these in lefty. Mine is from just before the name change to “E-II”.....it says ESP on the headstock. Real nice guitar. Funny thing is, it’s not black. It’s a factory finish, but not black. I don’t know how to describe it. It’s not metallic, nor is it metal flake....but it kinda has a slight glint of shiny metal color in the satin gray finish. It’s from the European market. I’ve searched as best I can and can’t find this color listed by a name anywhere. These guitars in lefty are always listed as a flat/satin/matte black. 

It’s a legit ESP, in pretty good shape too. Plays awesome. It came in the older style HSC that has the egg crate foam on the lid. Always wondered what the finish was officially called. Gunmetal Gray? It’s also a natural satin finish on the back of the neck, taped off the way ESP does it.....not a “mod”....it was made that way. I can’t remember the year off the top of my head, I think it’s an ‘09? I got like 22 guitars and it’s currently in the back so I ain’t digging for it. But, I think it’s something like a 2009 or maybe an ‘08.

Hi esp, what is the neck angle on this guitar? I know bolt on necks are usually 0 and gibsons with a tunomatic are 4°. Trying to get a feel of how this would play. Thanks!

Carl N.

This will be similar in degree to that of other instruments with tune-o-matic bridges as neck angle is determined by the bridge used not neck construction.

Thanks for the info Carl. Rock on brother
