The ESP LTD Alex Skolnick AS-1FM solidbody electric guitar covers the wide range of styles that Mr. Skolnick is known for. The familiar single-cutaway design boasts the classic tonewood combination of a mahogany body and a carved figured maple top for the classic tone that's great for any genre. And the 24.75" mahogany neck's slightly smaller neck carve makes for comfortable playing. The ESP LTD Alex Skolnick AS-1FM uses a pair of hard-driving Seymour Duncan humbuckers to conjure anything from agressive metal to warm jazz tones. Or you can coil split the neck pickup for even more options. The ESP LTD Alex Skolnick AS-1FM covers any style you'd ever need.
ESP LTD AS-1FM Alex Skolnick Signature Electric Guitar
- Designed with Alex, not just for him
- Classic appointments, with a mean-streak
- As versatile as the man himself
Designed with Alex, not just for him
From jazz to Testament's over-the-top metal, Alex needs one guitar that can cover both extremes with ease. That's why he worked so closely with ESP in designing his signature guitars and incorporating some of his favorite features into the Alex Skolnick AS-1FM solidbody electric guitar. You'll get great control over string bends with the extra jumbo frets, and the neck contour is both substantial for chording and thin enough for speedy runs. And a real bone nut gives you optimum string-energy transfer.
Classic appointments, with a mean-streak
The look of this instrument says it all. It exudes elegance and class, but the sharper cutaway and more aggressive headstock design let you know that there's a searing heavy metal machine lurking beneath the figured maple top. The Seymour Duncan SH-4 JB humbucker in the bridge is famous for the way it can punch the front end of a high-gain amplifier while maintaining clear pick attack. It's paired perfectly with the the moderate output of '59 humbucker, a pickup renowned for vintage tones. And the custom U neck profile excels at comfortable, fleet-fingered fretboard work.
As versatile as the man himself
The Alex Skolnick AS-1FM's versatility enables you to take it to the gig and cover a huge range of sonic territory. The classic mahogany and maple construction offers a strong midrange with the right amount of snap, and the dual humbuckers offer tones from high-gain madness to warm, vintage tones. Or engage the coil split and tap into clear bell-like single-coil tones. You'll find the AS-1FM is supremely comfortable and sounds great, whether holding down the rhythm or doing highly technical heavy metal lead work.
