This Godzilla-Shaped ESP Guitar Costs Over $50,000


For only 5.55 million yen (approximately $51,600), a new Gozilla-shaped electric guitar being produced by ESP could be yours. And hey, the shipping is free!

The guitar was designed by Takamizawa Toshihiko of the Japanese rock band The Alfee to commemorate the 65th anniversary of the movie monster, and was made with the support of Toho, the studio behind the classic film.

The guitar features an alder body, a three-piece hard maple neck, an ebony, 24-fret fingerboard, purple LEDs, a Floyd Rose bridge, Gotoh tuners and a single EMG-85 pickup.

Only five copies of this extremely limited edition guitar are being manufactured, made to order. Orders are available now through September 30, and can be placed here.
