1987 ESP TigerStripe Strat made in Germany
From the traditional Japanese guitar manufacturer ESP, which became known for its endorsers „Ronny Wood“ and „George Lynch/Dokken“.
This was followed by guitarists like Vinnie Vincent, Bruce Kulick as well as Metallica’s Kirk Hammett.
In 1986 ESP Custom Guitars opened the store in Düsseldorf and represented a real alternative to the „Valley Arts“ noble guitars.
Then in 1987 this Strat model „Made in Germany“ came out.
This exclusive specimen built in 1987, deviating from the standard available Violet Burst as a special order in beautiful Cherry Sunburst.
Beautiful model with birdseye maple neck and rosewood fingerboard, Floyd Rose tremolo and passive Seymour Duncan pickups setup (2 x single call, 1 x humbucker).
By default, this instrument was only offered with active EMG pickups.
Comes in a Fender ABS case.
A real treat for connoisseurs.
Precious workmanship with beautiful optics.
At ESP, other custom model variants were found for endorsers Breiti, Kuddel and Andi (Die Toten Hosen), Kai Hansen (Halloween), Axel Rudi Pell (Stealer), Peter Szigeti (U.D.O./Warlock), Paul Landers (Ramstein), to name a few.
