ESP basses: built to rock hard
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 and basses 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. Their commitment to quality is second to none, and their impressive roster of endorsers proves it. From Tom Araya to Frank Bello to Gabe Crisp, Danny Kenny, and Tommy Stinson, ESP makes the instruments that today's bass heroes use.
