Special Order

Classic Tone, Elegant Looks, and Buttery Playability

Built in Japan by ESP's world-class luthiers, the E-II Mystique QM/NT Marbl solidbody electric guitar sports a comfortable, contoured mahogany body with a breathtaking quilt maple top. A "Thin U" profile mahogany set neck and rosewood fingerboard provides lightning-fast mobility and epic sustain, while a pair of Seymour Duncan humbucking pickups gives you the tonal versatility you need to make your amplifier sing - or scream. Want classic tone, elegant looks, and buttery playability? You get them all with the ESP E-II Mystique QM/NT Marbl.

ESP E-II Mystique QM/NT Marbl Solidbody Electric Guitar at a Glance:
  • ESP's Mystique body style: elegance, comfort, and performance
  • In the neck position: Seymour Duncan's APH-1
  • At the bridge: the venerable JB Model SH-4
  • E-II series - ESP quality at LTD prices
ESP's Mystique body style: elegance, comfort, and performance

When you want a great-looking guitar that can rock with the best of them, you can count on ESP's Mystique body style for exceptional sustain and tone-packed performance. Set-neck construction gives the E-II Mystique QM/NT Marbl impressive sustain while enhancing articulation and clarity. And the 25.5" scale length is perfect for high-gain tones and down-tuned playing, giving you a powerful foundation for today's modern rock. Sweetwater knows that performance and looks are both important to you, and take it from us - the ESP E-II Mystique QM/NT Marbl scores off-the-charts in both categories.

In the neck position: Seymour Duncan's APH-1

ESP outfitted the E-II Mystique QM/NT Marbl with a Seymour Duncan APH-1 humbucker in the neck position. With its Alnico 2 magnet and moderate windings, this pickup has found a home in the axes of guitarists such as Slash (Guns 'N Roses and Velvet Revolver) and Queensryche's Michael Wilton. Perfect for any genre from jazz to blues to classic rock - and anything in between, the APH-1 is characterized by a warm sound and moderate output.

At the bridge: the venerable JB Model SH-4

The JB Model SH-4 is one of Duncan's - and the world's - most popular pickups and provides the classic sound of a hot-rodded humbucker that we've all loved for the last 30 years. Boasting plenty of output without sacrificing tone and adding the right amount of harmonics, sustain, and distortion, the JB Model SH-4 is great for anything from heavy blues to heavy metal - with an emphasis on heavy! But excelling at aggressive music isn't all the SH-4 can do, as it cleans up nicely, providing warm, sweet tones.

E-II series - ESP quality at LTD prices

Bridging the gap between custom shop and mass production guitars, ESP E-II brings you Japanese-made guitars at affordable prices. These premium guitars are made in the same factory as ESP guitars by the same luthiers. Based on the most popular ESP models, ESP E-II guitars have the features, playability, and vibe that you want at a great price.

Best guitar I've ever owned

First off, Mike Hammond at Sweetwater is the best. He not only made sure I was completely satisfied with my new guitar but bent over backwards to get me a great deal on more gear that I wanted. The neck on this E-II is awesome, totally made for smooth speed, it looks fantastic yet shreds with the best of 'em with the Duncan pups. If you have ever wanted an ESP this is the one to get, stylish and very very player friendly.
