E-II RZK-II BURNT

$2,799.00 with case

Rammstein fans around the world, rejoice: the Richard Z. Kruspe RZK-II BURNT is now available in an ESP E-II version. Previous only offered from the ESP Custom Shop, the E-II RZK-II BURNT is built by the luthiers at our ESP factory in Japan. It takes the single-cutaway Eclipse shape and presents it in a remarkably distressed finish with burn marks and gouges over its top and headstock. The RZK-II BURNT offers an alder body and maple neck in neck-thru-body construction for terrific sustain and tone. It’s built at a 25.5” scale, slightly longer than a typical Eclipse. The guitar also provides a rosewood fingerboard with 24 extra-jumbo frets and white neck binding. Its high-end professional components include Gotoh tuners, Schaller straplocks, a Floyd Rose Original tremolo, and a pair of brushed chrome EMG 81 active pickups for a super aggressive sound.

Hello, I have a question. I just got this guitar today and I noticed on the body of it there looks like there’s spots that can flake/ chip off easily on the body. Is that a part of the design or is there an issue with mine? I love the guitar just wanting to make sure everything is ok with it. Thanks!

Due to the manner in which this instrument is produced, it is literally burnt, there is a chance that some pieces may flake off over time.

Hi! I once asked, don´t remember who but he was involved with ESP guitars about if they will ever make an LTD model of this one, and the person told me that it is not currently possible to recreate this finish in your LTD factory, so I am asking, why don´t you just put a vinyl and clear coat over it. I know that it won´t be same as like original but would look like his guitar. I know that this doesn´t belong to ask under this guitar´s quotes but it is sad that we will never see any Japanese artist models in ESP or LTD line, I am a huge fan of Syu´s ( Galneryus ) crying star that is a sick ass guitar, but I am more for the shape not the sig model.

Hey Lukáš, a graphic wouldn't do this instrument justice.  Hence why we don't produce cheaper versions of this instrument, solely E-II and ESP versions for now.

Lukáš K.

Hey Carl, thank you for your response, it´s sad tho, it was cool when you were making LTD versions of RZK I and II without this finish, now you produce only with the finish and those LTD are gone. Also have you ever heard of ESP SR300 or something like that? Just found on ESP USA channel a cool guy named Sammy Duet from Goatwhore and he have his Star shaped ESP, that thing is hell of an instrument, will you ever be making any kinds of star shaped guitars or these are gone? 

Carl N.

Hey Lukáš, agreed very sad.  No plans at the moment to make a production model based off of that custom.

Lukáš K.

Hey Carl, thank you for your response, I will look forward to all new upcomings from ESP/LTD guitars and to give some more input if possible.

HOW I wish something like this, an Eclipse with 25.5 scale, but without the Floyd would be available. I just can't get used to the shorter scale but love the typical single cut style of guitar and also the classic set-neck maple/mahogany construction. Also in these times when down-tuning is becoming so common in metal and heavy music a 25.5 scale is a no-brainer

Carl N.

Hey Christian, our artist series instruments will be made in conjunction with our artist's specifications.  Perhaps our other E-II Eclipse models would be to your liking?

Hi Carl! 

I strongly prefer 25.5 inch scale necks, that's why I ordered a ESP Stream GT Classic that will arrive here at my home tomorrow! Can't wait

Carl N.

Very cool Christian, hope you enjoy it!

I recently bought this guitar and it's just amazing. My first ESP and i'm positive it won't be the last. It's my new favourite!
Thanks Richard and ESP!!
