ESP Guitar Company, Inc

Official Website

The ESP Guitar Company (Electric Sound Products), located in North Hollywood, California, is a prominent manufacturer of electric guitars and basses.

The company was created by Hisatake Shibuya in 1975 as a chain of music retail stores in Japan. In 1983, ESP started making replacement parts and started making hand-made custom guitars in 1985. In 1986, ESP opened an office in New York City to make custom guitars for American players. In 1996, ESP started a new brand, the LTD. The LTD guitars are similar to ESP guitars and more affordable. According to ESP, LTDs are made on an assembly line in Korea from cheaper materials than ESPs, which are handcrafted in Japan. They still provide the optional custom service which made them in the first place.

ESP found fame by providing guitars for guitarists who went on to become leading exponents of thrash metal music in the 1980s, most famously to Metallica. As a result of these endorsements, ESP has gone on to become one of the largest suppliers of guitars for use in heavy music.

EDWARDS GUITARS

Hey...Anyone know anything about Edwards guitars..I guess they're made by esp...just wonderin...?...Are they as good as esp's?????/ any info would be great!

Re: EDWARDS GUITARS

I think Edwards are as good guitars as any other of the ESPs. But, I think you wont get hold of one in a hurry because of gibsons lawsuit against them.

Re: EDWARDS GUITARS

I've been playing an ESP Edwards for 12 years now and I simply love it. I bought it in Hollywood/CA at the ESP custom shop. Since the where made for the japan domestic market that was the only place to get them. I don't think they are made anymore but they where kind of the pre-model for the current ESP Horizon Series equipped with the prototyped Seymore Duncan "Screaming Deamon" Pick Ups. So I guess the guitar was kind of an test for ESP on how the market would react on this model. What makes this guitar special is it's unique design of dark and bright wood. Even the Neck is "double-wooded" and I dig the sound.

WANTED IN AUS:WHITE ESP EXP OR SIMILAR SHAPE

If anybody can get the oldstyle shape white esp (or replica) please email me.
