ESP guitars are prized for their craftsmanship, playability and tone, and they’re loved by players the world over. But ESP Japan kicks it up a notch or two further with elaborate, beautifully designed instruments that are as flashy as they are special. You don’t often see these instruments outside of Asia but it’s fun to cruise on over to the ESP Japan website every now and then to check out what’s on offer. If you’ve visited the ESP website recently you might have noticed a new collection of guitars. ESP celebrates its 40th Anniversary next year, and they’ve unveiled the 40th Anniversary Exhibition Limited 2015 collection of very special guitars and basses designed to showcase the skills and creativity of their craftsmen and the quality of the materials they work with. Many of the guitars in the collection feature Seymour Duncan pickups, including the Nazgul, Pegasus and Sentient, the Black Winter, the Custom 5, active Blackouts, ’59/Custom Hybrid, even the Quarter Pound for Jazzmaster and Seymour Duncan Custom Shop models like the Phat Staple and Dynobucker. Here’s a look at some of the guitars in the collection.
Check out the whole line here. And to our friends at ESP, we look forward to celebrating with you in 2015!
