As the founder of pioneering and influential thrash gods Kreator, Mille Petrozza has been at the forefront of metal since 1982. The LTD MK-EC FR is the latest addition to his Signature Series, and it offers all of the menacing design aesthetic and sonic assault you’d expect from this acclaimed guitarist and frontman. The MK-EC FR starts with the familiar single-cutaway shape of the ESP Eclipse, but this monster is indeed its own beast. The body is flat-topped, designed for pure speed with no bevels, horn scoop, or arm cut, and features black binding on the body, neck, and headstock (with a waist cut in back for playing comfort). With neck-thru-body construction at 25.5” scale, and an alder body paired with a three-piece thin u-shaped maple neck, the MK EC-FR offers days of sustain and is able to handle downtuning like a champ. Its Macassar ebony fingerboard features mother-of-pearl dot inlays, Luminlay glow-in-the-dark side markers, and 24 extra-jumbo stainless steel frets.The all-black hardware on the MK-EC FR includes a Floyd Rose 1000 SE double-locking tremolo with stainless steel screws, precise Grover tuners, and a set of direct-mount EMG 81X (bridge) and EMG 85X (neck) active pickups. These pickups provide exceptional tones that range from open and organic to blistering and intense, and offer a higher dynamic range than you expect from typical active pickups. Includes deluxe ESP hardshell case.
