The ESP George Lynch signature model is made to rock

In 1985 guitar-phenom George Lynch teamed up with ESP to design their first signature model. It was George's guitars that brought ESP to the guitar playing masses. Based on the M series body, the ESP George Lynch Kamikaze-1 is all about comfort, tone, and sustain. When you're rocking hard night after night, the last thing your need is an axe that hangs on you like a boat anchor. The Kamikaze-1 fits you like a glove, and it's nicely balanced. Add a Seymour Duncan Screamin' Demon humbucker and ESP single-coil pickups and a Floyd Rose vibrato, and you're ready to shred with the best.

Killer pickup combination

ESP loaded the George Lynch Kamikaze-1 with a Seymour Duncan Screamin' Demon. Designed specifically for George, this humbucker exhibits a big tone reminiscent of a '59 Model with a touch of percussiveness gives you a sound with plenty of growl. And an ESP SS-120 pickup in the neck adds classic single-coil tones to your sound when you pull up on the volume knob. The George Lynch signature model ESP Kamikaze-1 electric guitar carries streamlined electronics aimed at hard rock.

Top-of-the-line quality from Japanese-made ESP guitars

ESP started as a manufacturer of after-market guitar parts in Japan in the late 1970s. By the mid-80s ESP was making custom guitars for some of the biggest names in rock. An exacting eye toward playability and craftsmanship has made ESP Guitars one of the most visible and prevalent guitar brands in rock and metal. Each ESP Kamikaze-1 guitar is still made in Japan. Their commitment to quality is second to none, and their impressive roster of endorsers proves it. From George Lynch to Ron Wood to Stephen Carpenter, Kirk Hammett, and Alexi Laiho, ESP makes the guitars that today's guitar heroes use.
