Vintage 1983 ESP Navigator Guitar - Bumble Bee Yellow Stripes
Near-Mint Japan Top Of The Line Navigator Custom

It cannot get any better than this. A 1983 ESP Navigator and Authentic ESP Guitar with a Holy Grail Banana Headstock and Bumble Bee Yellow Stripes

We are an authority on ESP Guitars and avid collectors having sold very many ESP vintage guitars here on Ebay. This listing is for an ESP Custom Order guitar that has been kept in perfect collectors condition and preserved for over three decades.

This guitar was manufactured in 1983 under the ESP brand Navigator. In recent years ESP has re-launched the Navigator brand as their flagship and highest quality brand with the highest price tag.

This Bumble Bee Yellow striped spider web graphic guitar was made at the ESP Craft House in Japan in the year 1983 and has its original and Authentic ESP factory applied 1983 ESP Navigator Logo on the headstock contributing to its collect-ability. The guitar is from whats referred to as "The Golden Era" of ESP manufacturing. The quality woods are quite obvious including the highly visible tiger stripe-ing on the back of the neck. The paint on the headstock and the body is excellent, matching paint, and is the original ESP factory paint. Clearly influenced by the EVH guitars that were used on the VH tours in the mid-80s. The banana headstock supports our theory that ESP was responsible for this headstock design. This guitar is a collectors item banana head guitar.

For 30 years I have collected Kramer and ESP Guitars. My detailed knowledge of ESP ( Electric Sound Products ) is accentuated by the fact that our shop has sold more Kramers,  Holy Grail Barettas and ESP guitars than any other. For decades I have painstakingly noted details, measurements and specifications from the best-of-the-best vintage guitars. Today we use this information along with many other techniques to manufacture our AXN™  Guitars.

My friends that make a living as guitar technicians and roadies in Los Angeles have worked for the professionals for years. They have helped in my quest to manufacture the perfect rock-n-roll instrument. A guitar that is created as a tool to help players perform better in a live environment.

My friends, luthiers, guitar collectors and associates, both in Japan and the USA, truly want to dispel the rumors that have been floating around. These rumors have facilitated much false and mis-information. The inaccuracies only confuse the important issues.

We at AXN™ Guitars hope to give those of you that love vintage 1980s guitars fresh and accurate information. We all deserve this. As well, we are sincere in our quest to manufacture modern guitars that revive and re-ignite your interest in practicing this instrument - the electric guitar.

We also believe in hard rock! We like old pre-1980s music but we are hard rockers that respect guitarists with true talent on the electric guitar. We grew up in an era, unlike today,  when rockers had swagger, looked the part, and had the chops to go with it.

Let us all be on the same team!
Johnny - AXN™  Guitars
