Formerly called “ESP Standard”, all ESP E-II instruments are created at our ESP factory in Tokyo, Japan, and are designed for professional players who accept no compromises in tone, feel, or reliability for their guitars and basses. The ESP E-II M-II-7 NT Hipshot is a 7-string guitar that’s a masterpiece of sight and sound with its spalted maple top over a mahogany body in a Dark Brown Natural Burst finish and amazing masked binding. Its three-piece maple neck is set-thru for smooth access to the highest frets. This guitar offers all of the upscale components you want, like a bone nut, Schaller straplock, Gotoh tuners, and a Hipshot bridge with string-thru-body design. This guitar’s sound is driven by a pair of Bare Knuckle Warpig 7ST high-output pickups mounted directly to the guitar’s body for amazing tone flexibility with smooth high end and monstrous low and midrange response.

Hi, can you tell me if this particular model currently features a satin finished neck (just like the Purple Natural Fade version) or glossy? I'm considering buying an E-II M-II 7 and I'd love the satin finish on the back of the neck but I prefer the Dark Brown Natural Burst finish for the body over the Purple Natural Fade one. I ask you this question because I've seen some photos of the Dark Brown Natural Burst model with a satin finished neck as well on a couple of music stores websites. Are those one-off instruments or limited/exclusive versions, or it's a regular feature of the newly-made Dark Brown Natural Burst M-II 7 guitars? Thanks!

I remember when reverse headstocks were the most requested thing but with ESP I personally find the headstocks way nicer upright. Such a beautiful guitar.

Hi, could you please verify what strings this guitar comes with? Your description says Elixir 9-56...my guitar came with a D'addario hang tag on the guitar and an Elixir hang tag in the case. The strings aren't D'addario because they don't have the colored ball ends and I'm sure they're heavier than 9's. It would be nice to know what they actually are. Thanks!

E-II and ESP instruments come strung with Elixr strings

The E-II M-II 7 NT LH guitar in Dark Brown Natural Burst I know comes with Bare Kunckle Warpig Pickups, can you tell me the capcitor used and pots on this guitar?  Is it the Bareknuckle CTS 550K pots and the Bare Knuckle/Jensen 0.022uf capacitor as well or a different brand? Thank you!! 

Carl N.

Hey Angelia, this will use a standard .022uf cap and 500K ESP branded Bourns potentiometers.  Hope this helps!

Is the neck profile, thickness, etc. on these M-II 7s exactly the same as the Horizon FR-7s?  I used to have a Horizon FR-7 and wondered since I always thought the Ms were slightly slimmer.  Thanks!

Carl N.

Hey Eric, yes these will both feature thin U shaped necks.
