does this Floyd Rose have the push in arm rather than the screw in arm and what Floyd Rose’s come with that feature 



Carl N.

Hey Max, this instrument will have the screw-on style trem arm sleeve.  This will be the standard for our instruments with Floyd Rose bridges.

The e-II-m-II LH was a little out of my price range so I ordered one of these. 

will be a big upgrade from an old Ibanez 370dxl with a cracked neck.

Questions; Where is this model manufactured?      Also, The neck description on this model say Extra Thin U with radius of 350mm. On KH2 model, the neck is described the same;  Extra Thin U, but shows radius as 305mm, what are the exact neck type and specifications on the KH602 Model?  Thanks


Korea and the specs are as shown and really great instrument. Superb.

Hi Jean-Marc, thanks for adding your comments.

Hi Larry, We may manufacture this model either in Indonesia or Korea. Regardless of where they are manufactured we always ensure the quality will be right. For LTD products which are built in larger production runs typically than our ESP models, we have a standard radius of 350mm for guitars (this is about 14" radius). The ESP models have a 305mm radius (12") which is a little rounder. Both models have the same width of 42mm at nut and thickness of 19mm at first fret and 21mm at 12th fret with our Extra Thin U profile.


I have owned many guitars in my 25 years of playing and have used Ibanez for many of these years but recently had bought this model and i must say WOW what a great guitar i so love it the sound is great and feels so comfortable so ill be getting more of my Guitars from ESP in the future Rock on......

Hey bud. quick question for ya did the shop you bought this from have it in stock or did you have to order one? I ordered one just about a month ago. Just curious to how long I might be waiting I’ve put 1000 bucks down on it already haha. when I was 15 I bought an Ibanez rg370dxl and that was about a 6 month wait. Here is my current setup while I wait patiently haha

Hey Gerald, let us know if we can help. Usually LH models are either in stock or waiting for an order to come in because we don't always stock them all year long, it depends on the demand.
