These tiger models always remind me of that famous Mr. Scary studio video that you can see on Youtube. It's not the exact same, but it's very close. The guitar features a maple body, a maple neck with a rosewood fretboard, 22 extra jumbo frets, dot inlays, an Original Floyd Rose, one humbucker, one single coil, a volume knob that doubles as a pickup selector via push/pull function.

UTILIZATION

The finish on this really stands out. It's faded nicely, and everything is painted perfectly. I didn't notice any runs or blobs on the finish at all. ESP really does a great job in this area. The fretwork was perfect, and the ends were nicely finished. That means that they don't cut up your hand every time you move up and down the neck. The guitar also has an Original Floyd Rose. This happens to be one of my favorite bridges thanks to it being a bit more "lively" than certain other bridges out there.

SOUNDS

The guitar has the Duncan Screamin' Demon and the ESP single coil in the neck. This is exactly the same as the Kamikaze one, pretty much. The biggest difference is that the rosewood on this helps cut down on some of the natural brightness that the Kamikaze has. The guitar itself is very bright, and it's also pretty heavy. It's not exactly something I'd use for modern day metal tones. It's truly an 80s guitar, and the brightness can be very unforgiving. I recommend replacing the pickups with something a bit fatter to help cut back on the onslaught of treble from this.

OVERALL OPINION

The guitar is the epitome of 80s all rolled into one neat little guitar. It's not the most versatile guitar in the world, and I'm not a huge fan fo the way it sounds stock. A pickup swap would be in order, but it's still a very great guitar, and it plays like absolute butter. The push/pull is also a very cool thing that's utilized on some of my other guitars. For people who never use the middle position, it can be a viable option for helping cut down on scraping more wood out of the guitar.
