ESP Original Series Snapper CTM - Marine Blue

The ESP Snapper CTM is a truly outstanding guitar, built one-by-one at the ESP Custom Shop in Japan by our world-renowned master luthiers. It’s the ultimate version of a traditional body shape that’s been modded to perfection using the highest level of build quality along with the finest woods and components. The ESP Snapper CTM offers bolt-on construction at 25.5” scale with a swamp ash body and flamed maple top with masked binding, paired to a thin U-shaped maple neck. Its maple fingerboard has 22 medium jumbo frets along with abalone dot inlays. Top-tier components include an unbleached bone nut, Gotoh locking tuners, and an ESP Flicker-III tremolo. This guitar’s H/S/S pickup configuration includes two Seymour Duncan STK-7 Vintage Hot Stack Plus stacked single coil pickups, which are slightly overwound and offer a wealth of warmth, sustain, and sweetness. The bridge pickup is a Seymour Duncan TB-16 ’59/Custom Hybrid, a medium output humbucker that sparkles with upper midrange harmonic content and grit. Controls on the ESP Snapper CTM include volume, tone (with a push-pull knob that allows for capacitance selection), a 5-way pickup selector, and a mini-toggle switch that offers a pickup mix variation for a wealth of tones. Includes deluxe hardshell case.
