Made in ESP's custom shop in Japan in 2014, this guitar earns the “Custom Shop” name in every way. The finish on this guitar has to be seen and felt to be believed. The relic is realistic but the thin lacquer coating makes this feel like a guitar that belongs on display somewhere and is 10x more expensive.

At its core though, this is a player guitar. It features hot Duncan Single Coils that are extremely quiet compared to other strats in the shop, an ultra-smooth neck with plenty of fret life and upgraded electronics that give you tons of tone options. Upgraded pots (by Xotic) and capacitor (by Jupiter).

If you are around Sydney, let us know, we are seriously happy to bring this axe to you so you can become a Navigator believer. 

Here is some more info on Navigator in case you aren’t familiar:

Navigator guitars are the highest-end of all ESP guitars. The Navigator series Fender and Gibson replicas are made at costs that exceed those even of Fender and Gibson’s own Custom Shops! They range in price from $4,000 - $8,000 and are the pride of ESP. Sounds like a crazy idea destined for failure, but what many people want nowadays is a quality guitar, made with the utmost attention to detail and don’t really care what the headstock says. Navigator guitars have the exact dimensions of Fender and Gibsons, but have amazing details that Fender and Gibson don’t even put on their own guitars.
