All ESP Original Series instruments are hand-crafted by the world-renowned expert luthiers at the ESP Custom Shop in Japan. With the ESP FRX, you get an extreme, aggressive guitar shape that has been a hallmark of ESP for decades. Taking this idea to the highest degree of design and build quality, the ESP FRX has the bold curves that will stand out from the crowd in any musical setting. It offers set-thru construction with a multi-beveled alder body adjoined to a slim U-shaped 3-piece maple neck with ebony fingerboard that has 24 extra-jumbo frets and offset dot inlays. Components on the ESP FRX rank among the world’s best for guitar players who demand perfection, and include Dunlop Straploks, Gotoh locking tuners, and Floyd Rose Original bridge. Our most updated lineup of ESP FRX models offer Bare Knuckle pickups: a set of Painkiller pickups (perfect for progressive technical metal styles with a combination of tight, resonant lows and intense pick attack) in Burnt Chrome covers available in Andromeda II finish, or Aftermath pickups (with fat, powerful clean tones, or fluid vocal-like sustain when driven hard) in Tyger covers available in Cast Metal Andromeda II finish. Both ESP FRX models include a high-quality hardshell ESP case.
