ESP Electric Guitars

ESP Guitars manufacture a wide range of guitars and bassesranging from custom made Japanese crafted instruments to incredibly affordable entry-level guitars. 

They are the parent company of LTD Guitars, a less expensive option than the Japanese and USA made ESP instruments that offer great quality at a lower price point.

Established as one of the most popular manufacturers of guitars, ESP has a lengthy roster of established artists which support and endorse their products.  

ESP are a favourite amongst rockand metal musicians with the likes of James Hetfield, Alexi Laiho and Andy James all favouring their products. They offer a range of versatile instruments to suit even the most diverse of players.

  • Affordable, high quality instruments
  • Designed with all players in mind – from beginners of any age to industry professionals
  • Available in a wide selection of instruments including signature models

  • Typified by their high spec. features – many models feature EMG pickups, Floyd Rose, locking tuners, quilted maple tops and more

  • Japanese made
  • Crafted from some of the best materials available to manufacturers

  • More suited towards industry professionals, recording musicians and guitar enthusiasts

The Original Series has no signature models and the guitars come with a higher price tag than the LTD, E-II and USA ranges. 

ESP E-II Guitars are:

  • Designed to fall in between the premium level LTD guitars and the ESP original series
