Sixteen New Artist Sig Models from ESP

Continuing their rapid growth, ESP Guitars announced 16 new Signature Series models at Winter NAMM. In addition to new standard models being debuted at the show, a total of 22 new guitar and bass models are being introduced by ESP at NAMM. The new ESP and LTD-brand signature models include custom guitars from Alexi Laiho (Children of Bodom), Dan Jacobs (Atreyu), Travis Miguel (Atreyu), Michael Amott (Arch Enemy), George Lynch, Richard Z. (Rammstein), Michael Wilton (Queensrÿche), Page Hamilton (Helmet), Jeff Hanneman (Slayer), and Stephen Carpenter (Deftones).

“ESP has continued our record growth over the past few years, and keeping our line fresh and vibrant is an important aspect of our recent success,” says Matt Masciandaro, ESP president. “ESP has always been a favorite of serious players who demand high performance from their instruments. The continuing resurgence in heavy, guitar-oriented music puts many of ESP’s guitarists and bassists in the national spotlight. Our emphasis on the new signature models helps support these artists, while allowing customers to play the same guitars and basses their heroes use onstage and in the studio.”
