The ESP E-II ST-2 Maple Fingerboard Electric Guitar in See Thru Black is a fantastic model for those who demand the very best. Built by ESP's expert Japanese team, the E-II guitar combines form and functionality with fantastic results.
The body has been crafted using basswood, noted for its lightweight feel and balanced timbre. Whether you're looking to play snappy Jazz hooks or searing metal, basswood is the perfect choice as it allows the roar intensity of the pickups to shine with the utmost transparency. The sophisticated see thru black finish allows the quilted maple top to shine through. The sleek lines of this model make it a joy to wield.
Fitted to the body is a bolt-on maple neck, which is shaped to the thin U profile. Paired with the neck is a luxurious maple fingerboard, complete with 22 XJ frets. The fingerboard radius is shaped to a smooth 305mm, which is perfect for executing smooth string bends and lightning fast scale runs. Navigating this neck and fingerboard partnership is an absolute joy, accommodating any playing style and rewarding precision faithfully.
The natural timbre of the tonewoods is translated with energy by Steve Blucher Designed DiMarzio Custom Wound pickups. Steve Blucher is the electronic wizard behind the original pickup design for Steve Vai's original "Jem" models, and it's safe to say he knows a thing or two about designing high quality pickups. The tonal versatility of these pups are backed with masses of power, giving you incredible control over your tone.
The clutter-free control system of the E-II ST-2 offers a master volume knob, a push-pull master tone knob, and a 3-way pickup selector switch. Retain the delightfully smooth humbucker tone, or use the push-pull coil tap to access a grittier single-coil output.
For unflappable tuning and unparalleled sustain, the Gotoh tuners are coupled with a Floyd Rose Original locking tremolo bridge, all finished in chrome. The bridge allows you to dive and wail like a pro, and maintains tuning accurately no matter how much you let rip. Finally, each model is supplied with a hard case to keep your pride and joy safe for a lifetime of use.
