Rammstein fans around the world, rejoice: the Richard Z. Kruspe RZK-II BURNT is now available in an ESP E-II version. Previous only offered from the ESP Custom Shop, the E-II RZK-II BURNT is built by the luthiers at our ESP factory in Japan. It takes the single-cutaway Eclipse shape and presents it in a remarkably distressed finish with burn marks and gouges over its top and headstock. The RZK-II BURNT offers an alder body and maple neck in neck-thru-body construction for terrific sustain and tone. It’s built at a 25.5” scale, slightly longer than a typical Eclipse. The guitar also provides a rosewood fingerboard with 24 extra-jumbo frets and white neck binding. Its high-end professional components include Gotoh tuners, Schaller straplocks, a Floyd Rose Original tremolo, and a pair of brushed chrome EMG 81 active pickups for a super aggressive sound.
One of the most popular EMG’s, the 81 is the one that started a revolution. Utilizing powerful ceramic magnets and close aperture coils, the tone was designed with detailed intensity, incredible amounts of high end cut, and fluid sustain. Traditionally used in the bridge position of your guitar, this humbucking pickup will make your leads slice right through even the densest mix. When used in both neck and bridge positions the sound can only be described as blistering.
