    I started but I could only do Gibson, Fender, Gretsch and Rickenbacker.

    Without reading other people's answers I have absolutely no clue about Jackson and ESP!

    Metallica and Slayer. Alexi Laiho as well although I've never heard that guy except on an Annihilator album.

    Like what Varg said, Metallica and Slayer... also thousands of metal bands out there. When my band played on the Thrash and Burn tour, almost every band had at least, if not all, had one guitarist playing either an LTD or ESP. I also noticed a lot of Randall XL cabs and ENGL and 6505's on that tour...

    These are the people I think of, although for some reason they may not necessarily play the guitars I assigned them to.

    I forgot the guy from Anthrax as well. Rob Caggiano.

    Funny thing with ESP - their budget line, LTD, seems to get a lot of exposure from fairly "big" artists. I mean, Caggiano has a LTD model, Nergal from Behemoth uses a LTD at times, and I've seen others.
    They're not exactly major artists like Metallica or whatever, but they're still pretty well respected and decent selling guys. Both those guys I mentioned are amazing guitar players as well.
    You wonder how come Epiphone don't get on that bandwagon. Only Jeff Waters has an Epi sig guitar that I know of.

    You guys are over-thinking this thread question. There is one guy, already on this forum, who would gladly strike endorsement deals with every single one of the manufacturers listed in the OP.

    I noticed that Japanese-based guitar manufacturers love to produce signature models... especially the big-name ones. Epi does not stand a chance because Ibanez and ESP probably already took all of them

    I can tell a Gibson from a Fender(usually) but to me its more about the music that they make.
