Capturing the essence of one of the world’s most beloved and influential figures in metal music, the LTD Alexi Ripped is among the final guitars designed by Children of Bodom/Bodom After Midnight frontman Alexi Laiho. The LTD Alexi Ripped is offered in an offset V shape with neck-thru-body construction at 25.5” scale. It features a three-piece thin u-shaped maple neck with natural satin finish for smooth and fast playability, alder body wings, and a Macassar ebony fingerboard (scalloped from frets 19-24) with 24 extra-jumbo frets, sawtooth inlays, and glow-in-the-dark side markers. The Alexi Ripped model is the first Alexi Laiho Signature Series guitar with more than one pickup. It includes an EMG HZ F-H2 passive humbucker in the bridge position for high-gain presence and clarity with a punchy response, as well as an EMG HZ S2 passive stacked single coil in the neck, offering just the right mix of mids with a clear and full low end. Components on this outstanding guitar include Grover tuners, a double-locking Floyd Rose 1000 bridge, and chrome hardware including a volume control and an inset three-way pickup selector. Available in Purple Fade Satin finish with painted black satin “ripped” pinstripes, with matching back and sides. Includes deluxe ESP hardshell case.
