ESP USA M-II Hardtail Guitar, Tiger Eye Sunburst


Flame Maple Top, Mahogany Body, Ebony Fretboard, Seymour Duncan Pickups

Player's Perspective

Music Store Live is proud to offer up this ESP USA M-II guitar finished in a beautiful tiger sunburst color.

This is an excellent way to get some of the best craftsmanship ESP has to offer in an American-made guitar that is absolutely shred-ready in every way. 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 Tune-O-Matic bridge gives you seemingly infinite sustain along with immaculate intonation. 

This guitar comes equipped with a versatile set of Duncan Custom/'59 pickups. They can handle clean sound as well as striving with some gain and distortion. They are articulate and defined while still having the ability to give you a taste of vintage sweetness, too.

This is a guitar that's built to rock. It is primed and ready to let loose!

Manufacturer's Description

Crafted at our ESP USA facility in Southern California, the USA M-II Hardtail 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. Optional premier-quality figured-wood tops are available on the USA M-II Hardtail including flamed maple, quilted maple, lacewood, zebrawood, and koa, with a variety of amazing translucent gloss and satin finishes to choose from, as well as both maple and ebony fingerboards with clean abalone dot inlays.

The parts and components on the USA M-II Hardtail are second to none, and include 24 extra-jumbo Jescar stainless steel frets, a Hipshot hardtail fixed bridge, a bone nut, Sperzel Trimlok tuners, Schaller strap locks, and a variety of high-end Seymour Duncan or EMG pickups, with a push-pull coil split control on the tone knob for passive pickup models. The USA M-II Hardtail 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.
