Based on the ESP Custom Shop guitar created by Neil Westfall of A Day to Remember, the LTD NW-44 uses the classic single-cutaway design of the Eclipse body style. It offers set-thru construction at 25.5” scale, yielding smooth and fast access to the highest frets. The NW-44 has a mahogany body with maple cap, a mahogany neck with an ebony fingerboard, block inlays, and 24 extra-jumbo frets, and comes in a great-looking Olympic White finish. Designed to rock, the NW-44 provides a single Bare Knuckle Aftermath pickup with one volume control.

I wish they'd put the baritone version of this (@8:30 ) into production

Hi, thanks for sharing that. pretty cool guitar.

I love my LTD's But truth be told if its not from Korea im not really willing to pay the money.


Todd B. ESP

Hi, Thanks for letting us know how you feel. We understand where you're coming from however we would urge you to try an ESP LTD model that is made outside of Korea. We always do our best to ensure the quality of our instruments are the best they can be no matter where we manufacture them.

Curtis H.

Mines from Korea and has poor binding in places and aged hardware. All of them in the store were like this so Korea isn't the be all and end all. It sounds amazing though so pick your battles I guess.

Hey ... U writing here its made in sourh korea but i heard its in indonesia and heard a lot of stuff about unfinished frets and volume knob failing off and so on.... that was like 2 years ago.. I want this guitar , but does it change something since those times? Like it is really in South Korea right now ? And Frets and knob everything is cool?

Looking into buying my second ESP and would love if this featured a full thickness non chambered body like Neil's ESP, maybe some day...looks like a nice one.

Is there anywhere for us to formally request the wine red version of this guitar? I (and quite a few other people I know of) would really dig that!

Carl N.

Since this is a signature model it would be up to the artist to determine any specification changes to this model.  Though you could always request one to be built by our custom shop, just visit an ESP dealer to submit your request for a quote.

Dean J.

Oh my mistake: it would be a second guitar, not a change to this one. He has a baritone version of this guitar in the wine red finish. 27.7 inch scale and bare knuckle juggernaut pickup rather than the aftermath. Many people are interested! This is as of last night on Neil's twitch stream. We really wanted to show that there was definite interest from fans, many of which who already have the white version and would be interested in the baritone version as well! Thanks for your time!
