ESP USA Design Joins with Hand-Created Art - The ESP USA Limited Edition TE-II Hardtail Electric Guitar in Snake Skin Finish

With a hand-created design based on the skin pattern of the boa constrictor, the ESP USA Pyrograph Series TE-II Hardtail Snake Skin might be the most bad-ass limited edition guitar ever made. Built by the acclaimed luthiers at the ESP USA facility in Southern California, the detailed artwork on the TE-II Hardtail Snake Skin is hand-burned into the guitar's top surface by renowned fine artist Dino Muradian. Only 10 of these guitars will be available worldwide.

This guitar combines a completely classic shape with the ultimate in contemporary build quality and high-end components available today. It offers a mahogany body with quilted maple top and bolt-on construction, and a thin U-shaped quarter-sawn maple neck with natural satin finish for the smoothest and fastest playing experience, as well as an ebony fingerboard with offset abalone dot inlays and 22 extra-jumbo Jescar stainless steel frets.

Top-tier components of the TE-II Hardtail Snake Skin include a Hipshot fixed hardtail bridge, a bone nut, Sperzel Trim-Lok tuners, Dunlop strap locks, and set of high-quality Seymour Duncan Saturday Night Special pickups with a push-pull coil split control.

Using magnifying lenses and custom pyrography tools, Dino Muradian painstakingly creates each of the pieces of musical instrument art with an unprecedented level of depth, dimension, texture, and expression in each piece. The artwork is situated on both the body and the headstock of the guitar, taking advantage of each instrument's unique dimensions to produce artwork that perfectly complements its shape. The TE-II Hardtail Snake Skin is an incredible piece of original art with a nearly photorealistic look that is a testament to Muradian’s immense skills. A choice for serious players and collectors alike, it includes a high-quality ESP USA form-fitting hard shell case and a Certificate of Authenticity from ESP.

Matching Pyrograph Design on Headstock

The hand-burned artwork on the Pyrograph Series makes use of both the body and headstock for a cohesive design and a totally unique look.

Signed Certificate of Authenticity

Of high importance to guitar collectors, each ESP USA Pyrograph Series guitar comes with a Certificate of Authenticity signed by ESP and artist Dino Muradian.

ESP ‘Mirror’ Logo

The ESP logo for the Pyrograph Series has a reflective surface, allowing it to stand out amidst the hand-created art.
