No matter who you are, you have to give a nod of respect to Stephen Carpenter of Deftones. His innovative approach to guitar playing and composition makes him stand out from the pack, and as an early adopter of extended range guitars, he led the way for thousands of players since who have picked up baritone and 7-string/8-string guitars. Stephen has been an ESP player for almost two decades, and he's a great example of the type of musician who best represents the ESP style. Check out all of his Signature Series ESP and LTD guitars
