The next release in the mid-level series features a 25.5" scale length, EMG pickups, and a Floyd Rose Pro tremolo.

San Luis Obispo, CA (November 14, 2014) -- Esoterik Guitars has just released their new 2015 mid-level series. The second release of the new series is the DR2 model. The DR2 is a very fast and clean model. It features a mahogany body for excellent tone and a five-piece hard rock maple/walnut/figured maple neck with a neck through design for unmatched sustain and comfort. This neck plays extremely fast and smooth. It has a 25.5” scale length, spoke nut truss rod and 24 jumbo stainless steel frets on an ebony fretboard. The fretboard has a 16” radius and no face markers on the front to give it a clean/sleek look and feel. It does however come with glow in the dark side dots, so no matter what surprises your light guy throws at you, you’ll know right where you’re at, at all times. The DR2 comes with a carved top, concave back, natural satin finish and is loaded with active EMG 81-85’s and a Floyd Rose Pro series tremolo. It features Gotoh 510 mini tuners, 1 master tone, 2 volume knobs and a 3-way pickup selector switch. This model also provides a close neck pickup volume knob for easy access to do pinky volume swells while playing/soloing. The wood matched electronics cavity cover plate also features our Phoenix Splatter laser engraved logo, and the headstock features an ebony overlay with a mother-of-pearl inlaid logo. All new Esoterik Guitars include a hard-shell case.

Temporary/Direct Wholesale Price: $1,102

Guitars are the best. We love them. It’s fun to fall in love with a guitar at a store, buy it, and proudly bring it home. But we’ve all been there … where after a month that new guitar is just not playing as good as it was before. As guitar players, we know what feels good and what feels bad when it comes to playability. Maybe you have setup preferences that you like on all your guitars, or maybe you want to experiment with changes to your setup?
