On stages and in studios around the globe, today's most discerning shredders can be found giving it their all with ESP electric guitars, and it's been that way since 1975. From then on, ESP has also collaborated with some pretty heavy hitters in the music industry, and that's what the guitars in this section are all about. In fact, ESP signature model electric guitars are made to the exact specifications of players ranging from James Hetfield and Kirk Hammett to Alex Skolnick and Jeff Hanneman - with names like that, you can trust us when we say that these guitars are designed for those with big musical ambitions.
So with that in mind, what exactly are you looking for? You certainly have a lot to choose from, but if you're trying to achieve a tone that's similar to Gary Holt's, you don't need to look any further than the LTD GH600EC Gary Holt Signature Model Electric Guitar. Featuring a mahogany body with set-neck construction, a thin-U profile, red EMG pickups and a Floyd Rose bridge, this guitar will have you exploring new sonic territories just like the Exodus and Slayer guitarist himself.
As mentioned, Kirk Hammett is well known for his love of EMG guitars, and the LTD KH-202 Kirk Hammett Signature Series Electric Guitar is an affordable beast that delivers the vibe and playability of Kirk's personal ESP guitar. Complete with an LH-301 pickup set, extra-jumbo frets, and skull-and-bones inlays on the rosewood fretboard, the LTD KH-202 belongs in the hands of any loud and proud Metallica fan.
And ESP's signature model choices go well beyond the two items mentioned, so try to spend time in this selection. The guitars here are so impressive, you really do owe it yourself to explore each one separately for a better idea of what they can offer you in a sound. When you get right down to it, ESP believes that guitars made for rock stars should be accessible to the fans as well - and their line of signature models makes that obvious.
