As ESP's first Signature Series artist, George Lynch brought a unique and powerful vision to the world of custom-designed guitars. The ESP Sunburst Tiger is one of the guitars most closely associated with George, going back to the height of his contributions to Dokken in the 1980s. One of our earliest Signature Series models, the Sunburst Tiger was designed by George as a guitar that could match his mind-blowing playing style. Made by hand by the famous luthiers of the ESP Custom Shop in Japan, this guitar is very similar to George's famous Kamikaze-1 model, but with an amazing graphic finish that evokes the stripes of a big predator, hunting at dusk. It features a maple body bolted to a maple neck with a 22-fret rosewood fingerboard. Its sound, as specified by George, is powered by an ESP Designed single-coil SS-120 pickup in the neck position, and a custom Seymour Duncan "The Hunter" pickup in the bridge spot. This pickup was specifically designed to George’s specification for a powerful and dynamic response, providing the harmonics, dimension, and firepower that George’s style demands. It's a high-output pickup with ceramic magnets and custom wind, with all the muscle for power chords and easy access to harmonic squeals, while remaining transparent enough for the “not quite clean but not exactly dirty” tones that George employs. The ESP Sunburst Tiger includes a Floyd Rose Original bridge and Gotoh tuners, and comes with a high-quality hard shell case and a Certificate of Authenticity from ESP.
