The new ESP web site and its outstanding community has been growing steadily since its introduction in Fall 2013, and we’ve been looking at ways we can better reward the people who contribute the most. To do so, we’d like to announce our new Points Rewards system.

What Are Points?

You get points for almost everything you do on the ESP site. Just completing your profile gets you 500 points. Referring a friend gets you 500 as well. Answering a poll question on our home page is 100 points. Posting videos, photos, forums posts, comments, and more will all earn you points. Basically anything you do to contribute to the ESP community in a constructive way will give you points. A complete list of points and their values can be found here.

How Does It Work?

Each month, our site will give us a report on who has contributed the most for that month. To be clear: for the purposes of our rewards system, each of you will start month with zero points for the month. At the end of the month, the ten people who accumulate the most points are the winners. It doesn’t matter how many points you gather over time. A person who has just joined the ESP site as a member has the same chances to get points and win on any given month as a person who has been accumulating points for months.

What Can I Win?

  • The top ten community members who accumulate the most points in a month will receive a download code that entitles them to one year of free online guitar lessons from Dangerous Guitar. Lessons are available for all playing levels, in all styles. A $134 prize value!
  • The top five point earners in a month will receive an “ESP Swag Pack”. This is a package of goodies that may include ESP-branded t-shirts, hoodies, hats, wristbands, banners, and more.
  • The #1 point earner of each month will win an LTD guitar. Yes, that’s right. You will win a guitar simply by being the most active member of our community in a month.

Who Can Win?

Any member of the ESP community, from any place in the world, is eligible to win. Please note: if you have been a winner of the #1 Points Reward prize in a month, you will not be eligible to win again for 12 months. All others are immediately eligible to start building their points and trying for the top spot. We want everyone to have a chance to get the rewards. Beyond that, though, it’s open to all ESP site members. To become a member, make sure to sign up here:
