ESP Original Series Arrow Electric Guitar - Andromeda II
Handcrafted in Japan by ESP master luthiers, the Original Arrow was built for brutality. Its aggressive angular body certainly looks the part, while a set of EMG JH "HET" active humbuckers create a wall of sound with truckloads of clarity and punch. This heavy-hitting axe's ergonomic Thin U-shaped neck removes all speed impediments from your path, enabling you to unleash the full fury of your technical prowess on the Original Arrow's smooth-playing 24-fret ebony fingerboard. This solidbody electric guitar resonates and sustains like a beast, thanks to neck-thru-body construction, and its Floyd Rose Original tremolo system facilitates twisting, bending, and dive-bombing with absolute impunity. Aggressive-looking black hardware rounds out the Original Arrow's impressive feature set.
Top-shelf tonewoods deliver superior sound
ESP wasn't fooling around when they built the Original Arrow. They started with a body built from alder. The balanced-sounding resonance of alder is at the center of some of the most legendary rock guitar tones of all time. The Arrow's super-stable 3-piece maple neck is topped with an ebony fingerboard adorned with 24 extra-jumbo frets. The result is a smooth-playing guitar with plenty of snap.
Active EMG pickups yield loads of clarity and punch
James Hetfield wondered, "Why can't I get the clarity and punch of a passive pickup — and the fat wall of sound of an active '81?" With that challenge, EMG set about the serious process of updating the pickup Hetfield has used for thirty years. After exhaustive live-show testing through twenty prototypes, the result is JH "HET" pickups — active humbuckers that give this Original Arrow the signature sound of Metallica's iconic rhythm guitarist.
High-end hardware unleashes maximum performance
For superior stability, the Original Arrow comes equipped with a double-locking Floyd Rose Original tremolo system and Gotoh locking tuners. With this tremolo, Sweetwater guitarists have found you can twist, bend, and dive-bomb all you want, and never worry about pulling your tuning out of whack. And these tuners eliminate string slippage while making string changes a snap. You can expect both rock-solid reliability and tight response when you play the Arrow.
