NAMM 2011: ESP Unveils Slew of New Signature & Deluxe Guitars
Electric guitar manufacturer ESP has a slew of new guitars to be showcased at NAMM 2011 next week including Signature models, 200 Series and Deluxe models.
Max Cavalera (Soulfly/Cavalera Conspiracy) is a veteran ESP player, and 2011 sees significant updates to his signature models.
The ESP Max Cavalera EX looks great in its urban camo finish, and has all the features Max specified for his latest ESP axe (mahogany body, maple neck, rosewood fingerboard, Gotoh tuners, Schaller straplocks, and Seymour Duncan Distortion pickups).
ESP have also released the LTD Max-200, the most affordable Max Cavalera model to date - it's available in snow white and gives a lot of bang for the buck!
Max Cavalera isn't the only metal mega star getting a special signature guitar from ESP in 2011.
For those of you who want to venture into the zone of 8-strings, the LTD SC-208 is a new standard-scale 8-string model from Deftones' Stephen Carpenter.
There's also a new 200-Series version of Michael Paget's (Bullet for My Valentine) v-shaped model, the LTD MP-200.
ESP have not been ashamed to announce that they believe their new LTD Deluxe and Standard models are among the best they've ever made.
The LTD Deluxe EC-1000T/CTM has a unique custom look, that keeps hold of everything metal guitarists have cherished.
It's a classic single-cutaway mahogany guitar with a traditional body shape, and is available in two finishes: Snow White and Black, with binding on the top and back of the body.
After much public demand two new H-Series models have been announced, the LTD H-1007 and LTD H-1007FR.
Both guitars are 7-string versions of H-Series guitars, with the H-1007FR also including a Floyd Rose bridge.
For those searching for more traditional shape in a high-performance LTD guitar, try out the LTD TE-202.
It draws from designs including ESP's Ron Wood Signature model, and is available in two pre-distressed finishes, Three Tone Burst with a rosewood fingerboard, and Black with a maple fingerboard.Posted on 6 Jan 2011 12:09 to category : Instruments News
