The George Lynch Signature Skull and Snakes

The George Lynch signature model ESP Skull and Snakes solidbody electric guitar was made to rock. This guitar's comfortable contoured alder body gives the Skull and Snakes a distinct and punchy voice that is perfect for rock and metal. You'll enjoy the bright sound of the bolt-on maple neck and smooth rosewood fretboard. Top-notch touches like the Gotoh tuners and a Floyd Rose tremolo provide tuning stability and an awesome feel. Add in a pair of Arcane pickups - a Mr. Scary at the bridge and a Desert Eagle at the neck - and you're ready to rock with the ESP George Lynch Skull and Snakes electric guitar.

ESP George Lynch Skull and Snakes Solidbody Electric Guitar at a Glance:
  • The ESP George Lynch signature model is made to rock
  • Killer pickup combination from Arcane
  • Top-of-the-line quality from Japanese-made ESP guitars
The ESP George Lynch signature model is made to rock

In 1985 guitar-phenom George Lynch teamed up with ESP to design their first signature model. It was George's guitars that brought ESP to the guitar playing masses. Based on the M series body, the ESP George Lynch Skull and Snakes is all about comfort, tone, and sustain. When you're rocking hard night after night, the last thing your need is an axe that hangs on you like a boat anchor. The Skull and Snakes fits you like a glove, it's lightweight, and it's nicely balanced. Add a Mr. Scary at the bridge, a Desert Eagle at the neck and a Floyd Rose vibrato, and you're ready to shred with the best.

Killer pickup combination from Arcane

ESP loaded the George Lynch Skull and Snakes with an Arcane Mr. Scary humbucker. Wound on an antique winding machine and tuned to George's discriminating ears, this pickup hits your amp hard - really hard. That being said, it yields an incredible high-end sweetness that sizzles and growls without a trace of harshness. And an Arcane Desert Eagle pickup in the neck adds classic single-coil tones to your sound when you pull up on the volume knob. The George Lynch signature model ESP Skull and Snakes electric guitar carries streamlined electronics aimed at hard rock.

Top-of-the-line quality from Japanese-made ESP guitars

ESP started as a manufacturer of after-market guitar parts in Japan in the late 1970s. By the mid-80s ESP was making custom guitars for some of the biggest names in rock. An exacting eye toward playability and craftsmanship has made ESP Guitars one of the most visible and prevalent guitar brands in rock and metal. Each ESP Skull and Snakes guitar is still made in Japan. Their commitment to quality is second to none, and their impressive roster of endorsers proves it. From George Lynch to Ron Wood to Stephen Carpenter, Kirk Hammett, and Alexi Laiho, ESP makes the guitars that today's guitar heroes use.
