Built at our ESP factory in Japan, the latest addition to the Richard Z. Kruspe Signature Series comes in the form of the ESP E-II RZK-I Burnt. Its intense look reflects that of its designer, the co-founder of Neue Deutsche Härte (New German Hardness) band Rammstein. The E-II RZK-I BURNT has an amazingly distinctive finish, with heavily-distressed burn markings and gouges over the body top and headstock. Its unique asymmetrical shape offers excellent balance, with a comfortable contoured alder body and a satin-finished maple neck with rosewood fingerboard, 24 extra-jumbo frets, and white neck binding. The E-II RZK-I BURNT is a neck-thru-body design at 25.5” scale, with high-end professional components including Gotoh tuners, Schaller straplocks, a Floyd Rose Original tremolo, and a pair of red-covered EMG 81 active pickups for a super aggressive sound.

I bought this guitar a few months ago from a local shop and the neck and fretwork are just amazing, so smooth. It's a joy to play and of course I love this the distressed look. Love all my ESPs, E-IIs and LTDs.

I've loved this shape for years now, but I just can't afford this. I think that it would help a lot of people if you guys made this shape in the 300-400 range. Is that possible?

Due to the process involved to produce this instrument we would not be able to make this model within a cheaper line.

Can I order custom shop guitar with this body shape?

Carl N.

For custom shop quotes you will need to submit a custom order form to one of our authorized dealers.  You may list RZK-I as the body shape on this form

Can I get the  normal esp version of this?

Carl N.

Yes, though since the ESP version is discontinued you would need to place a custom shop order for one, you may receive a quote from your local/preferred ESP dealer
