Welcome ESP Guitars

One of the latest product lines to be added to Sweetwater’s ever-expanding inventory is ESP guitars. Originally a manufacturer of replacement guitar bodies and necks, located in Japan in the late 1970s, ESP grew to be an iconic brand in the world of rock and metal guitars. In 1985, guitar phenom George Lynch teamed up with ESP to design their first signature model, the ESP Kamikaze. Since then, many artists, including Gus G., Alexi Laiho, Max Cavalera, Kirk Hammett, and numerous others, have used ESP guitars as their instruments of choice.

Top-line ESP guitars are still made in Japan by skilled craftsmen. An exacting eye toward playability and craftsmanship has made ESP one of the most visible and prevalent guitar brands in rock and metal. Their commitment to quality is second to none, and their impressive roster of endorsers proves it.

Bridging the gap between custom shop and mass-production guitars, ESP’s LTD Elite line offers Japanese-made guitars at affordable prices. These premium guitars are made in the same factory as ESP guitars, by the same luthiers. Based on the most popular ESP models, ESP LTD Elite guitars have the features, playability, and vibe that you want, at a great price.

ESP LTD guitars were created to bring a more affordable version of the classic designs and quality of ESP guitars to a new market. The entire ESP LTD line of instruments features high-quality tonewoods, pickups, and hardware, for a lifetime of use. Precise and detailed manufacturing means that every instrument is ready to rock when it leaves the factory. Visit Sweetwater.com to see our large selection of ESP guitars!
