Completely unique in its bold design, the ESP E-II Arrow is a guitar designed for pure high performance that will stand out from the crowd. Like all ESP E-II models, the Arrow is made in Japan at our ESP factory. Offering neck-thru-body construction, the E-II Arrow offers a sound as powerful and aggressive as its looks, with a set of EMG 85 (neck) and EMG 81 (bridge) active pickups. It has a light alder body with a 3-piece thin U-shaped maple neck, and an ebony fingerboard with 24 extra-jumbo frets. High-quality components on the E-II Arrow include ESP strap locks, Gotoh locking tuners, and a Floyd Rose Original bridge. Available in Black as well as new Snow White and Silver Fade finishes, as well as a non-tremolo version. Includes ESP hardshell case.

I got my second ESP E-II Arrow yesterday just a little over a month after buying my first Arrow Silver Fade. This time, it's the Snow White finish. Stoked at the high quality of the fit and finish and the hardware. Only downside is that the E-II Arrows come with Nickel frets.. it'll be great if it came with stainless steel frets. 

I modded it the moment I unboxed it with the noiseless Floyd Rose springs and the ESP arming adjuster. 

This guitar fits very nicely in the style and image of my band, Silent Angel.

I bought this guitar recently in Germany. I found out about the other available colour a bit too late and I had some regrets, however, not anymore, it's a beautiful, top made, v shape I ever had in my hands. 

What makes it different from the USA custom is the Everest finish and the JH set, which is fair enough but 2k was my budget. The Snow White gloss finish is very fine and you can't go wrong with 81/85 or worse case, upgrade pickups in the future. Amazing product. Built, playability and finish. I give you 5 for this one ESP and I'm a true fan and owner of 2 Gibson Flying V guitars. I didn't rate my Gibsons above 4. I even tried Solar and Chapmann, they haven't reached this level. Thanks for an awesome guitar!

Love the spec of this guitar!!! What about the option of Seymour Duncan Blackouts???

Hi Joe, Sorry we don't offer options to change pickups. They are built at the factory according the specs listed on our product page.

An EII Arrow with mahogany body would be awesome. An EII black metal version would be excellent too. Thanks for the excellent instruments you make. This is all I invest in.
