BLACK SHADOW BURST
Josh Middleton is the acclaimed and highly influential guitarist of UK-based progressive metal/metalcore bands Sylosis and Architects, and his first ESP Signature Series guitar is one that lives up to this musician’s extraordinary talent. The LTD Josh Middleton Signature Series JM-II offers a bolt-on construction alder body with quilted maple top, a three-piece roasted maple neck in an extra-thin u-shaped profile, and a Macassar ebony fingerboard with 24 extra-jumbo stainless steel frets. Components on the JM-II include a set of Fishman Fluence Modern Humbucker pickups (alnico in the neck and ceramic in the bridge), with push-pull control to select voicings. It also offers LTD locking tuners and a recessed Gotoh TOM bridge with string-thru-body design. Available in Black Shadow Burst finish.
This is guitar is gonna be my next purchase because of unpainted neck and SS frets. This is a really cool looking guitar. I wanna leave some feedback for ESP.
- Please offer more options with hipshot style bridges on your LTD end E-II lines.
- Unpainted necks are a must for fast and shred type necks. Please do away with nasty glossy necks, at least on your Horizon, M and MH type guitars
- Stainless steel frets
