Angel Sword Guitar
Hand Made for Toshihiko Takamizawa
When I started collecting guitars years ago, my allegiance to Metallica led me to ESP guitars. It did not take me long to find out ESP Custom Shop had made some of the most insane, wild and unique guitars on earth. If you Google or even YouTube “RARE GUITARS” or “MOST AWESOME GUITARS” you will find plenty of photos and videos of some wild, wild stuff. On just about every one of those searches you will also see THIS GUITAR!!!
This auction is for my Stupid Rare, Insanely Collectible 1993 ESP Custom Shop Angel Sword 20th Anniversary THE ALFEE. Not sure who the The Alfee is?? Do yourself a favor right now. Click “Watch this item” on the top right of the Ebay listing, then goto your favorite video hosting sight and do a search. OR you can watch the video below and listen to what you hear. Takamizawa is one of the biggest guitar god’s in Asia. The Alfee is the name of the band, and they have been packing stadiums and playing to crowds most bands will never fathom.
Just like Pete Townshend is known for the Windmill and smashing guitars. Just like Gene Simmons is known for spitting blood on his Axe Bass. Just like Yngwie is known for his scalloped neck strat---Takamizawa is known for his insane guitar playing and his absolute Over The Top, Work of Art, finely crafted guitars.
Didn't believe all the hype? Didn't think this guitar was real?? Heck yeah it's real. Real F'ing INSANE is what it is. Read my feedback. Unique and Rare guitars shipped all over the world. This is my Hobby. This is my Passion. GRAB THIS GUITAR BEFORE IT'S GONE!
NO BUCKLE RASH! NO DINGS!! NO DENTS!!! NO CRACKS!!!
Let me tell you about this guitar. WOW!! This is the mac-daddy of rare guitars. For those of you that have watched my auctions in the past, you know I collect the unique, rare and wild side of guitars. In my wildest dreams, ten years ago I could have never imagined finding or owning this guitar. Living proof that dreams can come true. Now, I am offering the dream to some other lucky guitar collector out there. Need a little extra time to get the funds together for this rare one?? I offer a LayAway Program to help my fellow collectors around the world. View my feedback and see the dozens of people in each hemisphere that have used my LayAway to secure rare guitars.
The guitar is light as can be. It is just absolutely amazing piece of craftsmanship. Based on the pictures, I figured the guitar would be rather awkward to play and hold—IT IS NOT!! This one is Light, Balanced and the neck is fast as lightning. I have had the privilege of owning and playing some of the most radical guitars on earth—This one ranks up there with the best. More of a shredding solo guitar then a heavy rhythm axe. You will not get the sustain of a Les Paul or an Explorer with this one. What you will get are OHHHs and AHHHs like you can believe. I have had friends ask me if I found this guitar on Mount Olympus. Even friends and family that could care less about guitars—THEIR JAW’S DROP WHEN THEY SEE THIS ONE.
I am very happy to say that if you Google the ESP Angel Sword, you will see the same pictures of an Angel Sword, over and over. Ones of it in the case and ones of it on a white towel. Here are some new pictures for you guitar-a-holics out there. Different angles, detailed close ups.
THIS IS NOT THE SAME GUITAR THAT YOU WILL SEE ON THE WHITE TOWEL!! THAT GUITAR HAS CHIPS AND EXPOSED WOOD ON SOME TIPS. THIS GUITAR DOES NOT HAVE ANY CHIPS OR EXPOSED WOOD!! THIS IS A PRISTINE EXAMPLE OF THIS AMAZING, TIMELESS GUITAR!!
Another example of an ESP Custom Shop Takamizawa. Find one of these, expect to pay over $14,000.00USD. You have to start somewhere. The Angel Sword 20th Anniversary is a great place to begin your hunt.
Look closely at the photos above. There are a few tiny areas of clear coat flaking along the edge of the fret board. I believe this is from age and nothing else. There is no evidence of impact or abuse to this guitar in any way, shape or form. This is a guitar for the serious, hardcore collectors out there. Do Not Pass Up The Chance to Own One Of These!! Took me Ten Years to land one.
THERE ARE 45 EDGES ON THIS GUITAR. 45!! EDGES OF THE WINGS, THE BASE, THE FEATHERS--- THERE ARE NO CHIPS! NO DINGS! NO SCRATCHES!! NO WOOD EXPOSED ON ANY OF THEM.
After you're done listening to the guitar work of Mr. Takamizawa, take a look at some of the guitars he plays. Craftsmanship and artwork second to none. The ESP Japan Custom Shop has crafted some of the most beautiful playing, sounding and artful guitars on earth. You can see why a serious collector would want to own these masterpieces.
ZERO!! ZILCH!!! NADA!!!! NONE!!!!!
There are a few blemishes on the side of the Low E Side of the neck. Looks like some aging chips by about 3 frets. VERY, VERY MINIMAL! They blend right into the Silver Metallic finish of this Angel Sword. If I did not mention them, you probably would never find them. There are no other issues to tell about this one. THIS ONE IS A COLLECTOR GUITAR SINCE DAY ONE!
I am even happier to say this guitar will be shipped in the ORIGINAL ESP 20th Anniversary THE ALFEE Hard Shell Case you see in the photos above. The guitar fits like a glove inside. This case is wider then an Explorer or King Kelly case. One of the widest cases I have ever come across. The case is also in Excellent condition. For that reason, shipping will be a little bit higher then usual. This is a BIG CASE. When you get it, you will understand what I mean. Makes the Jackson cases look like Ukele bags. I have been shipping guitars around the world for many, many years. I pack professionally and maintain perfect feedback.
I am not a guitar shop or retailer. I am an insane guitar-a-holic. I love unique and rare guitars. Ebay only allows 12 pictures. If you want any more pictures, contact me and I will get them to you. Frets are like new and she is ready to rock. You are welcome to come view this guitar first hand and pick it up. I live about 15 minutes from New York City.
