With only 20 guitars produced, its natural finish and high spec the ESP M-III Koa Limited Edition is a guitar that will turn heads.
Every now and then you get to see a guitar that just takes your breath away and that is certainly what happened when I saw the ESP M-III KOA Limited Edition.
Made in ESPs guitar workshop in the USA the ESP M-III KOA Limited Edition has been restricted to a production run of only 20 guitars. So if you want one you are going to have to be quick as they are going to be a real must have guitar.
The super strat style body is cut from Mahogany and is topped with a beautiful piece of Koa, hence the name of the guitar. Koa is a dense hard wood found only in the Hawaiian Islands and is renowned for both its looks and tone. The neck is roasted maple topped off with a 24 fret fingerboard. The profile of the neck is a thin U shape designed for both comfort and speed.
The pickups on the ESP M-III KOA Limited Edition are the classic super strat configuration of Humbucker and two single coils. As you would expect from a limited edition instrument the Seymour Duncan manufactured pickups are top quality high spec affairs. The single coil pickups are Seymour Duncan STK-S4 stacked single coil pickups. These deliver all of the tonal output that you would expect from a single coil pickup without any of the associated hum. The humbucker is a Seymour Duncan ’78 designed for that coveted late 70s sound that captures everything from hard rock and metal through to jazz fusion.
The pickups are accessed through a 5 way selector switch and there are onboard tone and volume controls. The high spec of the ESP M-III KOA Limited Edition is maintained with Sperzel standard tuners and a Floyd Rose Original tremolo unit.
Everything about this guitar oozes quality and I am sure it will appeal to a wide audience from rock and metal fans to blues and jazz soloists.
