Navigator guitars are the top of the line from ESP, hand made, and this guitar is a shining example of their expert craftsmanship! Considered to be superior to even the custom shop versions of the guitars they are modeled after, they are made with the best materials and some of the finest luthiers in Japan. Look at the attention to detail like the fit between the neck binding and each fret end and the real nitro finish! Maple top with a mahogany neck and center block for extra warmth. I believe this is the SA-150 model, it has a crown logo headstock and a Bigsby that was most likely installed afterwards as you can see the sockets for the original fixed bridge. Pickups are PAF by Goto. The spacing of the dots on the 12th fret dates this to 1975-1982, a very rare find!

This one is fitted with a Bigsby Tremelo system and it plays and sounds great! Electronics and truss rod work as they should. Tuners are not original, they are Greco brand. One volume knob has a chip out of it. Pots are made by Noble Frets are excellent and the biding has a great vintage look! Some minor marks but no cracks, buckle rash or noticeable scratches in the finish.
