The ESP Richard Z RZK-II Burnt was developed and designed by ESP in collaboration with Rammstein-guitarist Richard Z. Kruspe. The neck is a neck-through-body construction and is made of mahogany with U contour. The fingerboard is made of rosewood, 24 extra jumbo frets featuring oversized dot inlays. Two EMG 81 pickups power this monster – harnessed only with a master volume knob and a three-way toggle switch. The bridge is equipped with an original Floyd Rose double locking tremolo bridge with chrome plating and locking string nut.
