The ESP Snapper CTM is a truly outstanding guitar, built one-by-one at the ESP Custom Shop in Japan by our world-renowned master luthiers. It’s the ultimate version of a traditional body shape that’s been modded to perfection using the highest level of build quality along with the finest woods and components. The ESP Snapper CTM offers bolt-on construction at 25.5” scale with a swamp ash body and flamed maple top with masked binding, paired to a thin U-shaped maple neck. Its maple fingerboard has 22 medium jumbo frets along with abalone dot inlays. Top-tier components include an unbleached bone nut, Gotoh locking tuners, and an ESP Flicker-III tremolo. This guitar’s H/S/S pickup configuration includes two Seymour Duncan STK-7 Vintage Hot Stack Plus stacked single coil pickups, which are slightly overwound and offer a wealth of warmth, sustain, and sweetness. The bridge pickup is a Seymour Duncan TB-16 ’59/Custom Hybrid, a medium output humbucker that sparkles with upper midrange harmonic content and grit. Controls on the ESP Snapper CTM include volume, tone (with a push-pull knob that allows for capacitance selection), a 5-way pickup selector, and a mini-toggle switch that offers a pickup mix variation for a wealth of tones. Includes deluxe hardshell case.

I have this exact style guitar but from Japan. Mine has a Floyd. Why does ESP USA assume everyone wants snappers without Floyd's in the USA? I'd love to forego customs to import mine... It's the best guitar I've ever owned. But man, sell Snappers with Floyd's here.


It's easy, they fall under the superstrat category.
