ESP E-II Alexi Ripped is an Alexi Laiho signature model made in Japan. This high quality E-II production model is based on the unique ESP guitar built by the Custom Shop for Alexi.
This stunning guitar features the distinct body design familiar from previous Alexi Laiho guitars. The most-discussed difference, in addition to the great looks, is the slanted single coil neck pickup Alexi wanted to include. This expands the sound palette in many interesting ways.
The 25.5” scale guitar features a maple neck thru body construction with alder body wings and ebony fretboard with 24 extra jumbo -sized frets and scalloping from 19 to 24. Fretboard side markers are Luminlay glow-in-the-dark dots. There’s a Floyd Rose Original tremolo bridge with R2 spacing and Gotoh tuners. Straplocks are Schaller S-Locks.
The bridge pickup is the familiar EMG HZ-FH2 passive humbucker. Now it has a new companion, a slanted EMG HZ S2 stacked neck pickup. These go through an ESP MM-04 preamp & booster, which allows for a maximum of +18dB boost. The gain level and high frequencies can be trimmed to your liking.
This stunning guitar has a Purple Fade Satin top with ripped black pinstripes, a matching headstock and black backside.
The guitar comes in an ESP form-fit hard case.
