I'd love to see ESP start an American line of guitars similar to the Ibanez "Iron Label" series; stripped back, solid, workhorse tone machines. An LTD line without the fancy (and expensive) flame maple finishes that ESP seems to be known for, but still all of the expected quality.
A great, more simplistic budget guitar from ESP would be something that the less economicaly fortunate metalheads like me would be all over. Take note, ESP!
You really have a great idea for the ESP Guitars line. It would be nice to own a ESP with the essentials. Somehow I believe your idea is more suited to the LTD Elite line than the ESP line.
ESP is known as a premium brand. Stripping it down to just the essentials will not be favored by many ESP players and fans. They expect the high quality instruments they have always seen, purchased, and play.
But still you provided a very good idea that maybe ESP or one of his guitars line will apply in the future.
That would be great.
I love the Horizon series of guitars, but I absolutly HATE albalone on guitars. To have an affortable LTD/LTD Elite with no albalone, just a solid color or whatever, plus quality essentials would be great.
