Brief History: ESP (Electric Sound Products), was founded in 1975 by Hisatake Shibuya who opened a shop manufacturing replacement guitar parts in Tokyo, Japan. By 1976, ESP began producing their own guitars. The USA was introduced to ESP guitar parts in the early '80s. In 1985 the US saw their first run of the overseas made ESP 400 series guitars. George Lynch discovered ESP in 1986 and had them build a custom guitar for him. In 1989, ESP released George Lynch's custom model as their first signature guitar. Throughout the years ESP has produced many iconic instruments. In 1992, ESP discontinued the production of parts to focus on building guitars. The less expensive factory built guitars under the name LTD started production in 1996.
