When ESP started up in 1975, it didn't take long before their stunningly-crafted guitars were renowned worldwide amongst musicians. In fact, ESP's expert team of guitar builders have earned praise from many big names in the music business, including George Lynch, Andrew W.K., and Metallica's Kirk Hammett. Simply put, ESP is committed to providing killer axes for guitarists of all budgets and levels of experience, and you'll find more than enough choices within this selection to prove it.
With so many different guitar shapes and styles throughout their catalog, you'll have no problem finding an ESP model that represents your own musical preferences and makes you stand out from the competition. Of course, you can make your search easier by starting with the more popular options, and also taking your own skill level into consideration. For example, if you're just learning how to play, you'll definitely want to check out the LTD MH-103 Quilted Maple Electric Guitar. Sporting a see-thru blue color, a quilted maple top and flexible pickups, the LTD MH-103 is a perfect balance of exceptional looks and tone.
ESP also offers a wide array of Signature Series guitars from players like James Hetfield, Alex Skolnick, and Alexi Laiho. Speaking of which, any aspiring up and comer would love the affordably-priced LTD Michael Paget-330 V Electric Guitar. Featuring eye-catching graphics, a killer basswood body, and active ESP humbuckers, this versatile and easy-to-play axe is endorsed by the Bullet For My Valentine thrasher himself, and will have you on the biggest stages melting faces in no time.
Now, we couldn't talk about ESP without mentioning one of their pro-level models, and the E-II M-I Neck Thru Electric Guitar is a no-frills metal machine. The 25.5" scale and 24 extra-jumbo frets on a thin U neck makes this guitar a shredder's dream, the EMG 81 active pickup makes notes scream and the Gotoh tune-o-matic bridge provides maximum sustain. From crunchy rhythms to thunderous leads, the ESP E-II M-I NT is a black satin beast that will impress any discerning headbanger.
And this is only a taste of what ESP has in store for you. Whatever catches your eye, you can bet that if it bears the ESP logo, you're in for a treat. Truthfully, ESP guitars are ideal for anyone who wants to plug in, crank to 10 and make ears bleed.
