ESP LTD is celebrating Slayer's iconic South of Heaven.
This unique limited edition guitar commemorates the release of Slayer’s landmark 1988 album South of Heaven, with graphics inspired by the original album art. The SLAYER-2012 features South of Heaven’s skull and pentagram artwork, and pays tribute to ESP’s long relationship with Slayer guitarist Jeff Hanneman and bassist Tom Araya.
The ESP LTD SLAYER-2012 Signature electric guitar features an alder body and a 25.5" scale bolt-on maple neck. The extra thin U-shaped neck contour and 24 extra jumbo frets make the SLAYER-2012 an extremely playable instrument. Armed with an iconic pair of active pickups—EMG81 in the bridge position and EMG85 in the neck position—this guitar can handle plenty of gain and boasts unmatched tonal articulation. High-end appointments include a TonePros TOM bridge, ESP tuning machines, black nickel hardware and Slayer-inspired inlays adorn its beautiful ebony fretboard.
