We're proud to offer up this beautiful ESP E-II M-II NT! Made in Japan, where it all started for ESP, this one holds true to the standard of the company's quality from top to bottom.
The E-II M-II is a straightforward, metal-ready and shreddy killer that'll be a perfect fit for players looking for aggressive tone and super smooth playability. It doesn't try to reinvent the wheel - it's all about providing everything you need for a great metal and hard rock setup without getting in your way. This one's loaded up with Bare Knuckle Pickups, which are widely regarded as some of the best hard rock and metal pickups on the market today. Rich, heavy and searing, the sound is to be put through the paces when it comes to high-gain settings.
The build quality is extremely impressive for the price point with these E-II guitars. They have the type of balanced, dialed-in feel that you typically only come across on Custom Shop instruments. While obviously still commanding a notable price tag, this really does feel like an instrument that could retail for much more and would still be considered great value. This guitar is ready for decades of incendiary tone and reliable service!
All ESP E-II instruments are created at our ESP factory in Tokyo, Japan, and are designed for professional players who accept no compromises in tone, feel, or reliability for their guitars and basses. The ESP E-II M-II HT offers all of the tone benefits of a hardtail Hipshot bridge with string-thru body design in a beautiful guitar topped in Burled maple with an outstanding Black Natural Fade finish. It offers a 3-piece maple neck with a satin finish for incredibly smooth playing feel. The E-II M-II HT also features design details like natural body binding, white binding on the neck and finish-matched headstock, and black hardware. Its tone is powered by a pair of direct-mounted Bare Knuckle Aftermath Tyger pickups, perfect for modern sounds with accelerated bass response, crushing midrange, and precise high-end articulation. You also get high-quality components including ESP strap locks, Gotoh locking tuners, and a bone nut. Includes ESP hardshell case.
