ESP Original Snapper Electric Guitar - Burner
The ESP Original Series Snapper is a tribute to the earliest days of ESP, when the company’s primary mission was to provide guitarists with instruments that featured classic style, but seriously hot-rodded performance. This guitar’s swamp ash body resounds with present midrange and singing resonance, and it's the perfect tonewood platform for a trio of ESP Custom Lab Pickups. From shimmering cleans to shrieking high-gain fury, these pickups offer an incredible degree of tonal versatility, especially when you start tapping into the 5-way switch’s in-between tones and the bridge humbucker’s coil-split switch. Beyond that, The Original Snapper’s maple-on-maple neck is carved into a robust “U” to “V” shape that’s sure to please fans of more substantial profiles. Finally, the Original Snapper is bookended with a rock-solid ESP Flicker III tremolo and Gotoh Locking tuners to ensure your setup remains stable, no matter how hard you push it.
High-output ESP Custom Lab pickups
The ESP Original Snapper’s HSS configuration of ESP Custom Lab pickups delivers a vast assortment of top tier tones, from screaming high-gain metal to chiming single-coil cleans. First up, the bridge position CL-P-H-2+ features a hot, mean design that’s ready to slam the front end of your favorite amp or distortion pedal with tight lows, subdued mids, and sharp treble. Next, dual CL-P-S-2 single-coil pickups complement the bridge humbucker’s might with a clear tone that packs robust high-mids with exceptional definition. Along with a 5-way switch and a coil-splitting mini toggle, the ESP Original Snapper comes equipped with a tonal arsenal ready to tackle any sonic situation.
Top-notch tonewoods and hardware
Luthiers at ESP’s Custom Shop are serious about honoring their company’s earliest creations, which is why they choose only the finest tonewoods and hardware for the Original Snapper. A swamp ash body provides classic vintage-inspired response laced with walls of sustain. This light, incredibly resonant species of ash has long been prized for its musicality and chameleon-like ability to turn both clean and dirty tones into something special. What’s more, top-tier hardware like locking Gotoh tuners and a bone nut allows the Original Snapper to further enhance tone and offer pro-level performance.
