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.

Guitar of my dream

I wish it had a direct mount HB without the pup trim cover. That would be totally RAD! The S-HB setup is my signature style. The color is perfect but a maple fretboard would define it as superb. Then cut the pointed head down (because all mine have chips in them) and it's a sale!

I think the idea of these were to make them as closely as possible to the original 87 models. Not necessarily improve them. The stuff you said does sound awesome though.

Thanks for sharing Larry!


How much does it cost?

Larry M.

It's posted above at $999. but usually retail is lower so maybe $799 at Sweetwater or Guitar Center.

I’ve seen prices between $999.99 - $1099.99 at all the big name, online retailers. And for guitars possibly made in Indonesia. Yikes!
