Availability: In stock






FUNCTION - Electric Guitar

DESCRIPTION - This listing is for a 1981 Custom #1 ESP Neck fitted to a DIMARZIO Body Electric Guitar w/ Case owned and used by legendary guitaris, BOB KULICK.

This guitar is from Bob Kulick's private collection and is one of his most favored guitars in his collection and certainly most historic. Originally this guitar had a DiMarzio PAF Style Pickup installed (included).

The guitar was used by Bob with the band BALANCE on the album "In for the Count", with the legendary band KISS on the album "Killers", with MEAT LOAF on the album "Bad Attitude" and on the following 1983-1989 tours, as well as on the Monsters of Rock tour and various festival shows.

  Recently, Bob had ESP add the logo to the headstock and swap the DiMarzio pickup for a Seymour Duncan. ( The original DiMarzio is included)

PHYSICAL CONDITION - Very Good. For a guitar that has toured the world and worked hard in many studios it is in amazing shape. The Neck has some wear to the back, but that only adds to the comfort. The frets have minimal wear and the action is perfect. Although we do not know the type of wood on the body, it has beautiful grain, good weight and sounds awesome!

WORKING CONDITION - Excellent! The guitar really plays like a dream.

This is one of those guitars that through a little luck, the right combination of body and neck seems to work out to make and incredible player. By looking at the guitar you would not think it is an everyday guitar, or a "go to" guitar. But beyond its wild looks is a guitar that feels amazing the moment you grab hold of the neck. The action is superb and the neck is fast. Great sustain and tone. This guitars sits against your body real nice and lets you go to work. This axe has traveled the world and has years of show time in front of hundreds of thousands of people. The mojo and sould resonate from this guitar as soon as you open the case.

Don't miss your chance to own an amazing piece of music history!
