Good bye Gibson USA
this is wonderful news
I buy USA guitars for the most part, exclusively. I will buy one of the USA's or more
I personally like Japan made guitars more, but I am curious how they are going to look like and what they are going to be called :)
Happy Happy 2014
This is the best news Ever!
I can't wait for this!
I really wish that they would bring the edwards series to the US...beautiful looking shapes for an affordable price, I understand that there's their Les Paul and Strat shapes that aren't allowed in the US but what about things like the Forest and Antelope shapes? For those who dont know what that is, please google it, so sick looking.
I have an Edwards Gus G Nt in red. I alsop have the ESP Gus G version as well and they are identical in quality!! we will NEVER see the Edwards brand here in The USA I can guarantee that!
the best...just got betterHopfully they make some of the artist seris and the Horizon III.
great news,about time,it will be great to see made in the usa....on are guitars
Best news of the year for us!
I hope there will be reproduction of ESP/LTD F series with high end components. and in Satin Black and also in many colors. Good luck.
I really hope that one of the new line models will be a horizon III ESP!!! cause id get one instantly!
While, "The new USA facility will be crafting a series of production models on a limited basis during its first year of operation, ramping up as demand for the new line increases. ESP USA instruments will initially be available through a select group of ESP dealers." keeps people in susprense, and may produce a temporary bump in interest, it can also backfire. I plan to purchase in 2014, 2015 at the latest. Given I am happy owner of an ESP, they are my first consideration, but I am not going on a wild goose chase to find out what and where (I did that once before on a non-ESP purchase, never again). There needs to be specifics on the where available (I am not purchasing what I can not put my hands on first). Additionally, it would be helpful know what, so I can compare ESP apples to apples (or E-II's to E-II's). Being USA is great, but it is not the only factor in a purchase (otherwise I would not already be a happy ESP owner ;).
US made ESP! wow! Seems great! Looking forward for more new models and product lines! :) You guys really make kickass instruments! All the best ESP!
So... how apart will be the prices from the Japanese made guitars? this is good news but... with all these changes in the line up, what its going to be the 'real' ESP? before this, i knew that a japanese ESP was the real deal... now i dont know! ESP and LTD Elite being made in the same factories and all... it worries me a bit that ESP is kind of diluting their quality... anyway, this is just my opinion.
BRING THE ORIGINAL SERIES TO THE US!
Looking forward to ESP USA!!!
Nice, can't wait to see it!
