In 1975, a small musical instrument shop called Electric Sound Products opened in Tokyo, Japan.
In the back of the store was a small area for making custom replacement parts for guitars and basses. With that humble beginning, who could have imagined that over the subsequent four decades, ESP would grow into one of the world’s leading instrument manufacturers? Today, ESP’s Custom Shop, Original, E-II, Signature and LTD brands make guitars and basses for every style of music, and are available in more than 100 countries. For our 40th anniversary in 2015, we’ve created a selection of very special limited-edition guitars to commemorate this important milestone in our history.
