Renown Japanese guitar company ESP has just unveiled one of the most stunning, detailed and pricey guitars in its history.
Toho, the studio behind Godzilla, reportedly supported the build, which commemorates the 65th anniversary of one of Japan's most iconic movie monsters.
Guitar World reports that the guitar is carved from an Alder body. It also has a three-piece hard maple neck and an ebony fingerboard. Gotoh tuners, a Floyd Rose bridge and a single EMG-85 pickup also help this lizard roar.
Five of these extremely limited guitars will be put up for sale for about 5.55 million yen — about $51,600.
