Limited edition Sonic the Hedgehog ESP electric guitar available


SEGA has partnered with Japanese guitar company ESP to make a limited edition electric guitar designed after their mascot. It features Sonic the Hedgehog‘s face on the body, and his shoe on the headstock. The art used is from the Dreamcast launch title, Sonic Adventure, which is notable for being the first game in the franchise to feature music from the band Crush 40. Above is a demonstration of the product by their lead guitarist and SEGA music veteran Jun Sunoue.

It will be available all this year, which happens to be the 20th anniversary of the first Sonic game. It can be purchased from the ESP site for 136,500 JPY, which roughly translates to 1,782 USD, 1,227 EUR or 1,085 GBP.

    Nice. Anyone know of Gibson Marauder? Never seen that type of Gibson. Saw one at a hillcrestpawnshop in San Diego. Should I get it?

      According to Wikipedia they are pretty rare — only 1400 ever made — so for a vintage instrument it might be a nice grab. It looks a lot like a Fender Telecaster so I imagine you can expect those sorts of tones out of it, though I’m just generalizing here.
