ESP Guitars


ESP is a pioneering Japanese guitar maker who originally proved that Japan can build guitars capable of going head-to-head with American-made guitars. Starting in the 1970s, ESP produced parts and necks for other guitar makers and eventually started building their own full-blown custom pieces. Superstar guitarist George Lynch stumbled across ESP's custom guitars in Japan in 1986, and his signature Kamikaze signature ESP was born, catapulting ESP onto the world stage. Today, ESP has an impressive roster of endorsers and produces a full line of products, from entry level guitars to handcrafted custom pieces. The guitars pictured here are in stock and individually photographed.
