As the lead guitarist for Australian metalcore powerhouse Parkway Drive, Jeff Ling has high standards for his guitar of choice, and the E-II Jeff Ling delivers everything he needs and more. This is a guitar with no compromises for serious shredding, with neck-thru-body construction at 25.5” scale for excellent sustain and smooth, fast access to the higher frets, made even speedier with a natural satin-finished, extra thin U-shaped three-piece maple neck. Made in Japan at the ESP factory, the E-II Jeff Ling offers an ebony fingerboard with glow-in-the-dark side markers, a special “PWD” inlay at the 12th fret, and 24 extra-jumbo frets for two full octaves of rock. Jeff had us include a set of EMG Metalworks 60 (neck) and 81 (bridge) pickups for all the tones you need from creamy rhythms to screaming leads. Other high-end components include Gotoh locking tuners, a Gotoh locking TOM bridge with string-thru-body design, a bone nut, and a Schaller straplock. The E-II Jeff Ling comes in Black Satin finish and includes a high quality hardshell ESP case.
