The new ESP E-II series, which replaces the instruments formerly called ESP Standard, are all made at ESP’s Tokyo, Japan-based factory. New models for 2015 include the E-II Arrow, a guitar with bold, aggressive lines and high-end design features and appointments, including a neck-thru-body construction, an alder body with thin U-shaped maple neck and an ebony fingerboard. It also includes EMG 81/85 pickups and a Floyd Rose Original bridge. Also updated are the new E-II ST-2 guitars with quilted maple tops. These bolt-on neck guitars are offered in four new translucent finishes: See Thru Black, Tiger Eye, Emerald Green, and Reindeer Blue and include custom DiMarzio pickups and Floyd Rose Original bridge.
