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 7 NT is a 7-string guitar that offers all of the tone benefits of a hardtail Hipshot bridge with string-thru body design in a beautiful guitar topped in Buckeye burl maple with a killer Purple Natural Fade finish. It offers a 3-piece maple neck with a satin finish for incredibly smooth playing feel. The E-II M-II 7 NT 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 Warpig 7st Tyger pickups with extremely high output that works well with intense levels of gain and offering monstrous bass and mid-range response. You also get high-quality components including Schaller straplocks, Gotoh locking tuners, and a bone nut. Includes ESP hardshell case.
