Hey everyone. Jeff here. I've been the person who has brought you ESP's news for the last eight years or so, and I wanted to welcome you to the new site. We've done a lot of work to make sure that it's really useful to you, and ultimately we'd like to make it the very best guitar/bass manufacturer site on the entire Internet. But to do that, we need your help.

Become a Member!

You may have seen that in the upper right corner of the site, there's a button that says "Sign Up". Why bother signing up as a member at the ESP site? First and foremost, you can take advantage of a bunch of site features that were never before available here. You can set up a profile, sharing status updates and trading messages among fellow ESP users, like a social network that's just for people who play and enjoy ESP. You can add content, like photos of your ESP/LTD, or videos of your gigs where you're playing the best guitars in the world (whichm of course, are the ones we make). You can make blog posts like this one you're reading, and write about any topic that pertains to your performance and creation of music.

The Benefits of Membership

There's another great reason to sign up. ESP will be hosting various contests and sweepstakes that are only for registered members. There will also be information on ESP products and events that registered members will get before anyone else. In fact, right now, we're hosting our very first sweepstakes, where every person who registers here before December 31, 2013 has a chance to win an ESP Eclipse-II. And, before you ask, this sweepstakes is open to everyone in the world (unless your laws won't allow us to give you a cool guitar).

Anyway, we just wanted to welcome you and let you know that this site is for you. If you have things to tell us about the site, by all means let us know. We always want to hear from you.
