CHILDREN OF BODOM - Custom ALEXI LAIHO Wild Scythe ESP Guitar Unveiled
April 8, 2016, 3 years ago
Following is an update from ESP Guitars Finland on Children Of Bodom frontman Alexo Laiho's new signature guitar:
"At the end of 2014, Kai and Roope from Musamaailma sat down with Alexi to outline a new ESP Alexi Laiho model. The guys wanted it to have some cool, unique details and it took the whole evening. The concept of Wild Scythe was born.
The new ESP model was perfected during the following six months and at this point ESP’s finest, the Custom Shop crew, joined the project. Building the guitar started during the summer 2015 in Japan.
The deal between Musamaailma and ESP Custom Shop was to produce two guitars: one for Alexi and the other for Musamaailma.
And now it’s April 2016. Alexi will receive his ESP Custom Shop Wild Scythe next week after returning from Children Of Bodom North American Tour. He already knows what’s coming up and it’s going to be awesome!
The other Custom Shop Wild Scythe is currently 'borrowed' to the Musikmesse and returns to Musamaailma next week. Based on the Custom Shop model, ESP unveils a limited edition E-II Wild Scythe model also handcrafted in Japan. First guitars will be available in Finland in June 2016. The E-II Wild Scythe model is priced at €2600 (including VAT24% and an ESP hard case). For those of you interested in the Custom Shop version, it’s around €11000.
Stay tuned! The summer is coming and the first E-II Wild Scythe guitars will arrive at Musamaailma. Musamaailma and ESP Guitars Finland wish Alexi and the whole Children Of Bodom crew all the best!"
