Every so often, the most senior master luthier at the ESP Custom Shop creates a handcrafted guitar that is every bit as much a fine art piece as it is a playable instrument. For 2018, that guitar is The Buccaneer... a tribute to the swashbuckling, seafaring privateers who terrorized the Caribbean in the 17th and 18th centuries. Every millimeter of the Buccaneer reflects the artistry of its creator, with detailed wood sculpting and materials finishing that goes beyond the abilities of nearly any other guitar maker. It's this ability and level of attention to detail that makes the ESP Custom Shop second to none. Music: "Deadface Anthem" by Andy James. More information on the ESP Custom Shop here.

I am impressed by these every year, amazing craftsmanship! Also amazing to see how much can be done with a V-shaped guitar!


Amazing art, congratulations. You have to lend this one to Running Wild for "Under Jolly Roger", you have to!

Awesome build! So it's safe to say there's absolutely nothing ESP luthiers can't build.
