ESP Empire-W Queensryche Guitar

Vintage ESP Queensryche 1990 The Empire-W Guitar
Very Few Were Made for Michael Wilton

This is the last one of these we have. In addition we have only seen 5 examples of this guitar in 20 years..

( update 9/17/15 ) This guitars has significant cosmetic imperfections ( sticker rash ). We are selling it at a discounted price.

Queensryche endorsed by ESP in 1990 had custom guitars built for themselves. This is the guitar Michael Wilton designed and this model he used on The Empire tour 1990-1991. Very few of these guitars have surfaced over the decades leading us to believe that very few were made by hand at ESP. Unlike other ESP signature models, The Empire-W was manufactured in very very small numbers for a very very short time. 

This ESP Custom is in excellent condition. We were told that the guitar was covered in stickers years ago. The stickers at some point were removed and the removal process left a cleaning swirl in the clearcoat. As well there are some dings, dents, and scratches in the clearcoat. That said the Queensryche graphic is in perfect condition and is a very beautiful example of guitar artwork.

The body is made of solid maple and is quarter-sawn. The neck is quarter-sawn and has the Golden Era ESP Logo with the word Custom designating it as the highest end model from the time. Its a collectors item and its previous owner was a avid collector as well as a Queensryche supporter with many impossible to find guitars.
