Free 2-Day Shipping


It's always a treat to get a beautiful USA-made ESP into the shop. Built in ESP's USA factory right here in California, these instruments are top-of-the-line instruments on par with their renowned, artisan-made Japanese Custom Shop guitars. This stunning M-II DX FR is a great example of both ESP USA's quality as well as ESP's legendary design ethos! This one has an awesome blue finish that is definitely reminiscent of the glory days of the 80s. The brilliant Neptune Blue really stands out as soon as you lay your eyes on it.

This style of guitar is what ESP has come to be known for - the Superstrat capable of tearing heads off with both its tone and its looks. The M-II is an aggressive and modern design that takes no prisoners in playability or tone. From the top down, the guitar is built impeccably. The fretwork allows for nice low action, and the Floyd Rose locking bridge and nut lets you dive-bomb the night away without worrying about your strings going out of tune.

This guitar features Seymour Duncan Saturday Night Special pickups. These pickups are intended to capture that 70s/80s rock tone - think somewhat in the ballpark of Van Halen - and do so amazingly. They're not necessarily super hot, but just a little more overwound than vintage PAFs - just enough to scream and hold up awesomely under higher gain settings for hard rock and metal whilst retaining clarity to play classic rock, blues, and jazz with lower gain. The versatility is even further increased with the coil-split on the tone pot.

When high-end electronics meet superb construction and high-quality tonewoods, the result is something that's going to feel great, look great, and sound even better. That's ESP USA.


Crafted at our ESP USA facility in Southern California, the USA M-II DX offers a high-end take on one of the world’s most beloved shred guitars. It offers a mahogany body with bolt-on construction to its extra thin U-shaped quarter-sawn maple neck with natural satin finish for the smoothest and fastest playing experience.

The parts and components on the USA M-II DX are second to none, and include 24 extra-jumbo Jescar stainless steel frets, an Original Floyd Rose floating tremolo, Gotoh or Sperzel standard tuners, Dunlop strap locks, and high-end EMG pickups. The USA M-II DX includes a high-quality ESP USA form-fitting hard shell case.

Graphite Neck Reinforcement Bars

Get maximum strength and stability from your guitar’s neck, with higher long-term reliability. All ESP USA models are made with two high-strength bars of carbon fiber.

Deep Dish Jack

In addition to looking sleek, the Deep Dish jack installed on ESP USA models has the added benefit of providing the depth and angle of the cable to be easily looped around the player’s strap to better protect the cable from crimps or other damage.
