Sonic the Hedgehog Official ESP Guitar Available For Pre-Order

Any self-respecting guitar enthusiast and Sonic the hedgehog fan will have at some point drooled over the prospect of playing Jun Senoue’s trademark STH-130 ESP custom Sonic guitar. Some of you have been lucky enough to hold it!

Well, now you can have your very own!  As hinted by Senoue-san himself in recent months via his twitter account, ESP guitars will be producing a replica of this guitar available for purchase via ESP Japan. Much like the original, these replicas will all be high-end performance guitars made from top-of-the-line components, and would be the crowning jewel in any avid guitarist’s collection.

However, with a top-line guitar comes a top line cost – the instrument will be commanding a price of ¥136,500, which is the equivalent to around £1100 or $1750. If you’re planning on saving for one of these beasts, you’d also better get your skates on as they will only be available for pre-order until December this year.

Even so, top collectors and die-hard Senoue fans will be scrambling to get their hands on one of these beauties…now you can look the part as well as sound it!

Now I wonder if there is any chance to get one in left-handed…

[EDIT: For those who this interests (particularly me!) a left handed version will be available! Joy!

  1. UGHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH this is my dream guitar! if only i had more notice! can’t raise that much money in so short time…..:(……sad face for life.

  2. I would luv to play sweet, sweet Green Hill Zone music on that thing (that is if I knew how to play guitar and have the money CARP!!)

  3. HOLY CRAP! I want one SO BAD they should make a cheaper model… If they can make 200 dollar strats then they can make a cheaper model of this!

  4. Wow, can’t believe they are actually releasing it. I have an ESP dealer a little from where I live, but I wonder how I go about getting this ordered. Never really done something like this, also I wonder if it will be possible since it’s coming from Japan.

  5. No active deal. Thats way too much for what your actually getting. Though I am a fan of the Floyd Rose bridge

  6. I actually might break, and buy this lol. But for that price, it should’ve come with seymour duncan blackouts.

  7. I’ve always wanted to learn to play. I’d love to have one of these around… I’d learn how to shred the Sonic 2 boss theme.

  8. can’t wait to get one cuz i’m getting five. one for me and 4 others for just to not use but for display in my room

  9. I could afford this if I sold alot of my extremely collectible sonic gear from the mid 90s. But idk if it’s a worthy trade off.

  10. Awesome guitar, but WAAAY too much for my teenage salary. lol

    I’ll be happy enough with the $500 ESP I have already.

  11. I’m gonna email ESP america. I want to get a final price for the guitar from them in U.S. dollars.

  12. I have a job interview tomorrow. If I get the job, I could probably save up enough to preorder one of these bad boys. 😀

    1. I contacted usa ESP, and they still havent responded. Try contacting them too. If we get more people, maybe they’ll actually respond!

  13. That is an ultra awesome guitar. I would love to pre-order it, but I’m sure it costs a fortune. ESP do not make cheap guitars.
