Available in a variety of premier-quality finishes and top woods, the ESP Original Series Snapper is one of the most coveted guitars on the planet for professional musicians who demand the ultimate in detailed build quality and playability. Based on the guitars we created in the early days of ESP, the Snapper takes a traditional shape with bolt-on construction and supercharges it with the very best selections of tonewoods and components.
The Snapper is handcrafted, one at a time, by the world-renowned luthiers at the ESP Custom Shop in Japan. It features components including an unbleached bone nut, Gotoh locking tuners, an ESP Flicker-III tremolo system, and an H/S/S pickup configuration that includes two Seymour Duncan Vintage Hot Stack plus single-coils and a Seymour Duncan ’59/Custom Hybrid humbucker. This guitar offers a control set you won’t find on nearly any other model; in addition to the standard volume and tone knobs and 5-way pickup selector, the ESP Original Series Snapper includes a push-pull control that allows for capacitance selection, and a mini-toggle switch that offers a pickup mix variation for a wealth of tones. Includes deluxe hardshell case.
