A handcrafted metal machine with the tone and playability of a legend.

The ESP Alexi Ripped electric guitar is all about capturing the intense metal style of Alexi Laiho from Children of Bodom. It's built to match Laiho's own guitar, with a sleek, thin neck made of maple and an offset body shaped from alder wood, finished in natural satin for a cool look and resonant sound. This guitar is decked out with EMG pickups, including a powerful ceramic humbucker at the bridge and a crisp single-coil in the neck, delivering sharp, high-gain tones perfect for metal music. Plus, there's a boost switch that gives your sound an extra edge, cutting through any mix with ease. Thanks to its lightweight design and the smooth neck-through construction, you can shred at high speeds comfortably for hours, making it a true reflection of Alexi Laiho's legendary guitar skills.

Iconic metal style

With its purple satin finish, offset V shape and ripped pinstripes, the Alexi Ripped exudes a metal aesthetic. Modeled directly after Alexi Laiho's own instrument, this guitar looks as aggressive as it sounds. The Alexi Ripped is built to inspire the same hard-edged creativity that Laiho brings to Children of Bodom's music.

Fast Neck Profile and Ebony Fingerboard

The Alexi Laiho Ripped guitar features a thin U-shaped maple neck and smooth ebony fingerboard for a slick, rapid playing feel. Its 25.5" scale length and slim profile allow for fretting complex chords and lightning-fast solos with ease. The neck-through-body construction adds sustain and resonance for notes that sing.

High-Output Pickups and Active EQ For Aggressive Tone

The Ripped guitar packs an EMG HZ F-H2 humbucker in the bridge position, a ceramic pickup that delivers tight, punchy tone with excellent high-end definition—ideal for the biting drive required in extreme metal. In the neck, an EMG HZ S2 single-coil pickup provides articulation and clarity. An onboard active EQ boost switch lets you add up to 18dB of gain for a blistering lead tone.

Active Boost Switch for an Extra Kick

When you need to cut through the mix for a searing lead or accent a crushing riff, the Alexi Ripped's active boost switch provides up to 18dB of gain to push your tone over the top. With the flip of a switch, you can go from rhythm to lead or kick your distortion into overdrive. The boost circuit has adjustable EQ settings so you can tune it to your exact needs.

Premium Parts For Superior Performance

High-quality components like Gotoh locking tuners keep your ax sounding pitch-perfect, while an original Floyd Rose double-locking tremolo bridge allows for radical divebombs and squeals. ESP strap locks prevent your guitar from slipping off your shoulder during intense performances. A master volume control, three-way pickup selector and boost switch provide all the controls needed for crafting and switching between tones on the fly.
