ESP LTD Alexi Ripped Electric Guitar – Purple Fade Satin
Solidbody Electric Guitar with Alder Body, Maple Neck, Ebony Fingerboard, 1 Humbucking Pickups, 1 Stacked Single-coil Pickup, and Floyd Rose Tremolo – Purple Fade Satin
High-performance Alexi Laiho Signature
Alexi Laiho pushed the boundaries of death metal with unrivaled virtuosic melodicism. The ESP LTD Alexi Ripped is based on one of Lex’s final designs, and it’s something that — prior to his untimely passing — the Children of Bodom frontman was proud of and eager to unleash. The LTD Alexi Ripped features an aggressive, offset “V”-shaped body, decked out in a Purple Fade Satin finish with “ripped” pinstripes. A set of passive EMG pickups arms this metal-ready axe for roughed-up mayhem. Neck-thru-body construction ensures maximum resonance and sustain. You also get a comfortable 3-piece maple neck that’s capped by a fast-playing 24-fret ebony fingerboard, plus a Floyd Rose 1000 tremolo for rock-solid twisting, bending, and dive-bombing. The LTD Alexi Ripped is topped off with head-turning chrome hardware, sawtooth fingerboard inlays, and glow-in-the-dark side markers.
Top-shelf tonewoods deliver superior sound
Lex wasn’t fooling around when he designed the LTD Alexi Ripped. He started with a distinctive offset “V”-shaped 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. But it doesn’t stop there. The alder features an eye-grabbing Purple Fade Satin finish with “ripped” pinstripes. The LTD Alexi Ripped’s 3-piece, Thin “U”-shaped maple neck is topped with a 24-fret ebony fingerboard — scalloped from frets 19–24 — which results in a smooth-playing guitar with plenty of snap.
Screaming tone from EMG pickups
Alexi Laiho favored a single EMG Hz F-H2 humbucking pickup. The ESP LTD Alexi Ripped follows suit, while also providing you with a few extra surprises. The aforementioned Hz F-H2 delivers killer high-gain tones with amazing clarity. Every note you play will sing out and be heard. There’s no mush with this pickup — just solid tone. You also get an EMG Hz S2, a stacked single-coil pickup churns out traditional S-style tones by the truckload. No matter how fast and furious you play, the LTD Alexi Ripped will deliver each note with the force of a triple-corpse hammerblow.
Double-locking Floyd Rose 1000 tremolo
For serious sonic pitch explorations, the LTD Alexi Ripped comes equipped with a Floyd Rose 1000 tremolo system. This incredible trem lets you twinge n’ turn all you want, and never worry about pulling your tuning out of whack. Whether you dive, chirp, scoop, or texturize, you’ll get both the rock-solid reliability and the tight response you need with the LTD Alexi Ripped’s Floyd Rose tremolo.
