ESP,

Can you provide the specs if I wanted to replace the original tuners with locking tuners? Does ESP sell these for this model? 

Thanks,

-GC

Todd B. ESP

Hi Gerardo, We do not sell these. Any standard or modern tuning key will fit our holes. The only difference is that some tuners will have a mounting hole at a different location.

Joey G.

Hello, ESP.

My son and I are wondering what the finish is on the Snow White guitar. Is it gloss, or matte?

Thank you!

Todd B. ESP

Hi Joey, This finish is gloss. Typically all our finishes are gloss unless listed as "Satin".

I was too poor to afford to upgrade my Snow White EC-156. I'm getting Seymour Duncan Black Winter pickups for Christmas, as well as Graph Tech Tuners. Should the pickup and tuners make a big difference?

 

Todd B. ESP

Hi Chris, Those upgrades should make a difference. The new pickups should be a lot higher output and different sound, hopefully you like them. And the Ratio tuners make it easier to tune each string because the gear ratios are adjusted for each string tension. good luck!

I ordered this guitar recently. I was wanting to switch to active fishman fluence modern humbuckers. Is there enough space in the cavity for a battery?

Todd B. ESP

Hi, Yes there is enough space for a regular 9v battery. If you want to use their rechargeable battery that would require some modification. I would start with the 9v and see how you like it. Just wrap the battery in some thin foam so it doesn't touch any of the other components.

Arnaldo C.

Hello ! I'm going to buy this guitar next month, but i'd like to do some upgrades. Including Gotoh tunning machines and bridge. Please, is there a place thet i can find the bridge size specifications ?

Todd B. ESP

Hi Arnaldo, the holes and sizes for mounting are fairly standard for all tuning machines and bridges these days. 10.5mm for the tuning machine holes and about 11mm for the bridge post holes. Just purchase the type of TOM bridge with the large post size in metric and it should fit.
