ESP USA has just rolled out their limited-to-15 Nosferatu guitar. The guitar was created by the ESP USA Shop in California and artist Dumitru “Dino” Muradian, whose art was quite literally burned into the guitar through a process called pyrography. The ESP Nosferatu features a Mahogany body with a Maple top, a three-piece thin U-shaped Mahogany neck, and an Ebony fingerboard with 22 extra-jumbo stainless steel frets, and split flag inlays. The ESP Nosferatu also comes loaded with Seymour Duncan Black Winter pickups hand-wound in the Seymour Duncan Custom Shop by legendary pickup builder Maricela “MJ” Juarez, TonePros locking bridge and tailpiece, a bone nut, and Sperzel tuners.
At the end of the day, yes – this thing probably sounds great. But it does feel like more of a really cool art piece if nothing else. Still, check it out here.
