Formerly called “ESP Standard”, 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 E-II SN-II takes a traditional guitar shape and then maximizes every aspect of it for contemporary music performance styles. It features bolt-on construction at 25.5” scale, with an alder body and burled maple top in a fantastic Nebula Black Burst finish and natural masked binding. It has a maple neck with ebony fingerboard that includes 24 extra-jumbo frets and dot inlays. The E-II SN-II offers an outstanding set of components that includes a Floyd Rose Original SE bridge with stainless steel screws, Gotoh locking tuners, and ESP strap locks. Pickups on the E-II SN-II are a set of direct-mount Bare Knuckle Aftermath Battleworn, offering accelerated bass response for exceptionally fast tracking of high-speed staccato riffing, crushing midrange, and precise high-end articulation. Includes an ESP hardshell form-fitting case.
