Can we call the ’80s retro yet? Because that’s exactly what ESP are digging with the Mirage Deluxe ’87, a faithful homage to their legendary guitars.
The LTD ‘87 series offers some of the best specs you’ll find - not only within the ESP range - but the world over for a Korean-made guitar. Exceptional construction, stylish looks and elite hardware and electronics.
Made of a contoured solid alder body giving off some awesome old school vibes, the ‘87 is a true spectacle of a guitar - but it doesn’t stop there. Playability is always at the forefront of ESP’s design books.
It hosts a bolt-on extra thin ‘U’ neck and ebony fingerboard; a winning combination found across the ESP catalogue in their USA built guitars and production models alike. Hardware choices include a Floyd Rose 1000 floating bridge for all the flutters and divebombs you need, all the while guaranteeing solid tuning stability.
The Seymour Duncan Distortion is made for one thing, and one thing only. This hot ceramic pickup delivers full-bodied tones focusing on upper mids frequencies and a tighter low end. It feels at home when used for rock, metal or contemporary jazz.
It’s complimented nicely by the neck position Hot Rails, which is a ceramic output humbucker shrunk down to the size of a single coil. Thick and fluid sounding, the Hot Rails adds another dimension to the tonal intricacies you can tap into on the Mirage.
