Description & Specs

In addition to the impeccable instruments that the ESP Custom Shop in Tokyo crafts for individual customer orders all year round, once a year, ESP’s master luthiers take their extraordinary skill and craftsmanship to the task of building a guitar of their own dreams. Representing the top tier of each artisan’s individual artistry, the ESP Exhibition Series brings together a showcase of ESP instruments, each of which is, in and of itself, a one-of-a-kind work of art.

Exclusively available at Chicago Music Exchange, the ESP EX23-19 FRX CTM sports a set-neck construction, which joins a beautiful birdseye maple neck and ebony fingerboard to a Honduran mahogany body, topped with flamed maple and finished in a transfixing Red with Blue Honeycomb design that’s all its luthier’s own.

Outfitted with a Floyd Rose Original bridge (w/ 37mm Fat Block), Gotoh locking tuners, and Aluminum Red control knobs, this utterly unique instrument comes equipped with a pair of Bare Knuckle Cold Sweat pickups and metal honeycomb pickup covers to match the finish for a striking effect that’s sure to cause a buzz in any room this guitar is in—whether it’s being played, or hanging on display, as part of any art collection.

We're right off the CTA Brown Line 'Paulina' Stop Just North of Belmont and just West of Ashland.

We’re all musicians here at Chicago Music Exchange and we want you to love the gear you get from us. We understand that sometimes you get a piece of gear that doesn’t work out for you. That’s why we offer an easy return policy to take the stress out of purchasing from us.

If you decide you'd like to return an item, please contact your Sales Rep, chat us, or give us a call.

If you placed your order on Amazon or eBay, we advise issuing the return request from your account on the platform of purchase - our Customer Service team will process a refund upon receipt of the item(s).

Most new items may be returned within 30 days of delivery and most vintage & used items may be returned within 3 days of delivery for a full refund, exchange, or store credit. Please pack the product safely for the journey back to us. If the product was shipped for free, the charge will be deducted from refund, unless the reason for the return is outside normal circumstances.

Please contact us as soon as possible if your order was received incorrectly, damaged, or defective. Most times we will give you an RA number (Return Authorization). Why is that number important? This will allow us to speed up the process of the return.

We reserve the right to charge a restocking fee based on the return condition. Some items we just can’t take back for returns, due to a one time function like strings or drums heads and other times it’s not sanitary to do so with microphones or harmonicas. If you aren’t sure if what you bought falls into a category like this, call us (773) 525-7773!

We strive to get your return processed quickly. Most of the time we have it done within two business days. Funds going back to credit cards usually takes two to four business days. CME strives to make sure all customers are happy with their experience. It is our priority to provide great service along with great gear. We always want to be helpful, and open to your feedback. Please let us know your thoughts! If you have any questions, we’re here for you!
