(U.S. Only)

While ESP first got started in 1975 as a small repair shop in Tokyo, it was really toward the mid ‘80s when our guitars and basses grabbed the attention of players around the world. The LTD ’87 Series are faithful recreations of this set of instruments from ESP’s 1987 catalog. Based on the original ESP Mirage body shape, the LTD Mirage Deluxe '87 is a bolt-on shred machine with an alder body and three-piece extra thin U-shaped maple neck being made available in Pearl Pink and Turquoise finishes. These guitars feature a Floyd Rose 1000 bridge and a pickup set that includes a Seymour Duncan Distortion TB-6 (with original style bobbins and a push-pull control to split the coils) in the bridge and a Seymour Duncan Hot Rail single coil in the neck position.

Well I just got the pearl pink and I have tell you something , the pictures you see on the web of this guitar are nothing like the real thing up close , this guitar is just drop dead gorgeous , me I’m a graphics kind of guy but there is just something about this thing that just draws my son and I right to it , it’s solid and stays in tune very very well , the only thing that I need to replace are both pots , just because it’s not a smooth and complete volume , when you get near quiet , boom it shuts off the sound , other than that the setup was darn near perfect , it sounds great , I’m an 80’s hard rock guy and this is just another reason why I miss the good ol days 


Carl N.

Glad you approve, thanks for sharing

Carl N.

Hope you enjoy it

My main issue is that this only comes in turquoise and pink. I'd prefer something like white or maybe something with a graphic, although that may not be the point of these models. Still, I'd prefer a wider range of colors.

Carl N.

These were made in line with how they were offered in 87', while white was an option back then this was not chosen among the colors currently being offered.  If we could produce all of our instruments in ever color we would, but sadly that is not a viable option.
