ESP is a name that has grown from the backroom of a Tokyo music store to a trusted brand in the world of music. Since 1975, ESP has been manufacturing replacement parts and building custom guitars that have caught the attention of hobbyists and professionals alike. Simply put, ESP is detail obsessed when it comes to design and craftsmanship, so when you plug into one of their instruments you know it's going to be something special. This obsession has led to ESP becoming the brand of choice for some of the world's biggest guitar heroes. Some artists are so supportive of ESP that they have even lent their names to the ESP signature model guitars. Signature model electric guitars are made with artist specifications in mind. That is to say, ESP has worked closely with artists to build guitars that will replicate their style and tone. Owning a signature model electric guitar is the best way to sound like the heavy metal icon of your choice.
Choosing the signature model guitar that is right for you can be as simple as picking your favorite rocker or band. For example, do you want to ride the lightning with Metallica? Then check out one of the LTD KH-602 Kirk Hammett Signature Series Guitars or the LTD James Hetfield Snakebyte Electric Guitar. These guitars can help you achieve that classic Metallica sound, whether it's the lightning fast leads or the bone crunching rhythms. Since they're designed in conjunction with Kirk and James, there will be no mistaking that nothing else matters once you plug them in.
Maybe you're more a fan of the work George Lynch did with Lynch Mob and Dokken? Then definitely have a look at the George Lynch M-1 Tiger Electric Guitar. Not only does this guitar look amazing with its tiger print design, but its tone soars with a Screamin' Demon humbucker that absolutely tears it out when the volume is punched up. Truly this guitar brings a whole new meaning to the term "Beast master."
And that's only scratching the surface. ESP offers signature model electricguitars for everyone from Slayer's Jeff Hanneman to The Dillinger Escape Plan's Ben Weinman. Built with the stage in mind, these guitars are definitely going to take your playing to the next level.
