Alex Skolnick (Testament), who joined the ESP family in 2013, has updated his signature models with the ESP LTD AS-1FR FM. The AS-1FR is a high-end Artist guitar made in South Korea and features a flamed Maple top in Black Aqua Sunburst finish and a Floyd Rose tremolo….

The ESP Alex Skolnick FR is based on the ESP Eclipse body shape, with a standard single-cut body contour and a set-thru neck with a fast contour. The body is made of Mahogany and a two-piece flamed Maple top. The neck is made of three pieces of Maple and has a bound Rosewood fingerboard. Seymour Duncan passive pickups are installed – a JB in the bridge and a ’59 in the neck position. Premium hardware installed include Grover tuners, master tone control with push/pull switch (coil-splitting) and a Floyd Rose bridge.

“It’s the culmination of years of combined experience – mine as a player and ESP Guitars as one of the best-run companies out there” – Alex Skolnick
