Overview

Mille Petrozza of the influential German thrash metal band Kreator designed the E-II MK-I as a guitar that would fit the iconic, aggressive style of his music. Like all ESP E-II instruments, the MK-I is built by ESP Japan. Its unique Double Arrow V shape results in a streamlined, beveled look that’s perfect for all heavy music styles.

A neck-thru-body design at 24.75 in. scale with excellent access to the highest frets, the MK-I offers a comfortable alder body, a fast three-piece maple neck with natural satin finish on the back and a 24-fret ebony fingerboard with glow-in-the-dark side markers. It also offers high-end components like a Floyd Rose Original bridge and Gotoh tuners.

The MK-I also makes use of the innovative Fishman Fluence Modern Humbucker active pickups, which include a voice selection mini switch (down for “Modern Active” tone, or up for “Modern Passive Attack”). This model includes Fishman’s universal USB rechargeable battery pack and hardshell case.

    Comments about ESP E-II Millie Petrozza MK-1 Electric Guitar:

    Flashy guitar, meant to be played live for visual effect. I don't recommend wearing it out in endless practice.
    First I want to tell you the color is perfect. Much better than the stock picture suggests. It is a nice bold but pleasant military OD green. If you are having any doubts about Fishman Fluence pickups, erase them from your hard drive. These are the pickups of the future. They are active like normal active pickups but the complimentary voicings are by far the best for heavy metal I have ever heard. I have EMGs (81/85/60), I've had Blackouts, I have Black Winters, I have an Invader, JB...etc. These are the best of all worlds. The passive voicing sounds like a heavier Black Winter. The active voicing sounds like a clearer, sharper yet much more appealing EMG or Blackout. There is really no comparison between Fishman and everyone else. The one thing I don't like is it does not even have side markers besides the glow in the dark side markers that you can't see in normal lighting. But oh well. Also it comes with 9s instead of 10s I don't like that at all. When I tested it though it was a hair out of tune on the D string but PERFECT otherwise. The shape is spectacular. E-II does not have the absolute straightest neck for the price point. And this MK-1 they sent me is no exception. There is a very slight kink around the 18th fret but it does not effect play or the overall dynamics of the action. It is not exactly innocuous but is probably just a visual black mark against the guitar at least when looking at the straightness of the neck. Aside from the awkward V feel it has a great overall feel. There is no tone knob but lets face it, when am I going to use a tone knob?

    Now a warning. Of course you want to pick it up in store. You need a large vehicle. This case is actually twice as big as a regular case.

    Comments about ESP E-II Millie Petrozza MK-1 Electric Guitar:

    The guitar looks stunning and plays like a dream. Two voicings on the pickups really help with the versatility of this guitar. The construction of this guitar is impeccable and I actually like the fact that there's no inlay on the fingerboard. It is an oversized V but the balance is really good and neck won't dive at all when playing standing up. Very comfortable neck and easy access to higher frets no problem. The original floyd rose really makes a huge difference, I used to only have guitars with licensed FR and finally got to experience the higher quality FR and it is indeed a lot better.
