The CD cut, a new mechanism that pursues further specifications that can be said to be an advanced version of the queen cut, uses a bush-type joint method and lowers the part of the body that reaches the inside of the cutaway by one step to limit the stress caused by the thickness near the high frets.
ESP Custom Lab PU & Bridge
The pickup uses the H-3, the latest model from ESP Custom Lab. A high-gain type humbucker with a matte bobbin, black logo, and black pole piece. Also, by attaching it directly to the body, it shifts to a tight sound.
The bridge is also a fixed type from ESP Custom Lab, and the bridge plate that surrounds the saddle prevents the saddle from moving sideways and transmits string vibrations to the body without loss.
What is generally called natural binding is a technique in which the edges are not colored and the wood is visible, making it look as if the binding is wrapped.
The EM-II CTM is actually wrapped with hard maple material in the same way as the binding.
The body is intentionally not painted, and is finished with a thin coating so that the texture of the wood remains. In addition, by using lacquer for the top coat, it has a unique texture.
