ESP E-II Purple Sparkle

What a great guitar and what a great colour!           

Made at their factory in Japan, these ESP E-II guitars (previously the “ESP Standard”) look fantastic and come in a range of finishes including this one in Purple Sparkle.

For around £2000 you get a professional quality guitar with great tone, feel and playability. Add in set-neck construction. a maple-capped mahogany body and thin U-shaped mahogany neck with ebony fingerboard and you can see why.

These instruments all feature extra-thick white binding on the body, neck and headstock as well as high-end components like a bone nut, ESP strap locks, Gotoh locking tuners, and a Gotoh TOM bridge and tailpiece.

The pups are EMG 57TW/66TW active pickups with individual push-pull controls on both volume knobs for coil splitting. A hard case is included.
