If you’re heading to the Chicago Open Air festival next week (July 14/15/16, 2017) and you don’t see an ESP guitar or bass everywhere you turn, you might be in the wrong place. Like, if you’re buying a hot dog at Portillo’s, you might not see an ESP. But then again, with the number of bands and players using ESP at this event, you still might have to duck under one of our headstocks while ordering a slice of deep-dish at Giordano’s. Below are some of the guitar players who you’ll almost certainly see with their ESP, ESP E-II, and LTD guitars and basses at the show!
