ESP Custom Shop Screaming Skull made in 2008. This guitar was originally released sometime in the late 80s-early 90’s and was limited to 50 guitars made. There have been 2 (including this one) made since which were both in 2008. The other of the 2 did not have the flaming fretboard inlay and had mini skull & cross bones instead which was used as a display at the 2009 NAMM convention. This guitars body was hand carved by Jimmy Diresta and the paint job was done by Dan Lawrence. The body is made from alder and us carved into the shape of a screaming skull with carved flames shooting out through the back of the head. The flames continue across maple neck with ebony fretboard all the way to the headstock. The detail and color are amazing on this guitar! 


The guitar has a single Seymour Duncan JB humbucker in the bridge position controlled by a master volume control, a Floyd Rose tremolo system with locking nut and Gotoh tuning machines. The neck is a standard 25.5” scale length with a thin U neck profile, and a 12” fingerboard radius on a flame painted maple neck with 22 extra jumbo frets. 


This guitar is in excellent condition with only light surface scratches. The guitar has been freshly re-strung with .09-.42 gauge strings and setup in standard A440 tuning. Comes with the COA and original ESP flight case. Audio and video demos coming soon!
