This has been rumoured for a few months, but now it’s a reality: From 2014, the only guitars to bear the ESP name will be Japanese Custom Shop models. The Standard series will come to an end and the new (and continuing) guitar models will be named E-II.
ESP has plenty of great pics on their Facebook, but here are a couple of teasers. I gotta say, this 8-string is reeeeeeally doing it for me. If you’re here in Australia, keep an eye on Bmusic for all the new models.
