Crafted one at a time by the expert luthiers at the ESP Custom Shop in Japan, the ESP Will Adler Warbird Distressed is as much a work of art as it is an amazing instrument. Each model is painstakingly treated to resemble a guitar that has really paid its dues with hundreds of tour stops, recording sessions, and more. This distressing treatment isn't only applied to the guitar's finish; each hardware component (like the pickup covers, controls, bridge and tailpiece) also has the worn-in look that only ESP's artists can create. As the guitarist for American metal masters Lamb of God, Will Adler required a guitar that could handle his powerful yet nuanced playing style. The ESP Will Adler Warbird Distressed offers neck-thru-body construction, with a maple-capped mahogany body, a three-piece thin U-shaped maple neck, and an ebony fingerboard with 22 extra-jumbo frets. High-end components include Sperzel locking tuners and a set of Will's own Fishman Fluence® WA signature pickups. Includes premium hardshell case and Cetificate of Authenticity from ESP. Available in highly-distressed Black with Will's Warbird graphic.

Willie’s ESP Warbird is the best and most solid guitar I have ever Teched.  It has NEVER needed any truss rod adjustments through all the environments we travel through.  

The tuning holds solid throughout the show.  It’s a rarity to have to adjust the tuning after a proper stretch and warm up.  

The WA signature Fishman pickups just scream. Tons of sustain and drive.  

I just love these guitars so much so I am getting one myself.  Just do it!

are you Wil's tech Carlos?  I just ordered a lefty one, been drooling over them  for years.

Wish this came without the warbird logo as an option.

You could always order one from the custom shop, you may see an ESP dealer for a quote
