ESP Original Mystique Electric Guitar - Tea Sunburst
The ESP Original series captures and elevated the essence of ESP’s earliest guitars to new heights! This uncompromising line of instruments features only the finest components, woods, and aesthetics assembled by hand by legendary luthiers at ESP’s Custom Shop in Japan. The Original Mystique offers a deluxe take on the classic mahogany double-cut electric guitar recipe with expansive results for a 2-pickup guitar. Premium onboard components include locking Gotoh tuners, a Gotoh tailpiece, a TOM bridge, a bone nut, and two Seymour Duncan Custom humbucking pickups (a ’59/JB in the bridge and a ’59/Jazz in the neck). Both pickups offer rich, dynamic PAF-style tone with boutique voicings suitable for rock, jazz, pop, metal, and anything in between. What’s more, the Original Mystique is an alluring work of art with a bold flame maple top, binding, and a matching headstock overlay.
Top-notch tonewoods and hardware
The ESP Original line has been called “obsessive” when it comes to the materials used and the luthiers who shape them. The Mystique is no exception — it’s a unique yet familiar creation packed with elevated takes on classic guitar ingredients. The Mystique body shape is balanced and comfortable thanks to offset horns and a forward-shifted upper. This innovative design yields great access to the 24-fret Honduran rosewood fingerboard, while the forward-shifted upper horn allows for distribution of mass. The result is thick, hefty solidbody resonance, but with more balanced ergonomics and playability than a typical mahogany guitar. Both the body and the neck are carved from choice Honduran mahogany. The body is capped with flame maple that adds classy wood grain and subtly sweetens the overall tone. The neck features ESP’s renowned “Thin U” neck carve for speedy comfort, while a set neck design boosts resonance and allows super-smooth playability across the upper frets near the neck joint.
Custom Seymour Duncan humbuckers
A fine guitar is nothing without fine pickups, and the ESP Original Mystique offers nothing but the best! This guitar offers two premium passive Seymour Duncan Custom pickups. The bridge, a ’59 Custom Hybrid JB humbucker, uses an Alnico V magnet paired with one coil from the popular PAF-style ’59 Model and a second coil from Seymour Duncan’s more treble-rich JB humbucker. This combo modernizes the rich clarity of the PAF voice by adding a touch more heat without getting too out of hand. It holds up well to dirt, gain, and pedals, and is a versatile platform to enjoy clean or affected to the max. In the neck position, you’ll find a powerful ’59 Custom Hybrid Jazz humbucker with a slightly warmer output and a smoother, more sparkling voice. Between these two pickups, the Mystique is a nimble chameleon that’s ready for everything from intense driven rock to laid-back jazz.
