MIJ ESP Guitars

We are excited and proud to announce our partnership with ESP Guitars. At UpFront Guitars we have a saying that every successful brand needs three things: Quality, Consistency and History. After a long awaited introduction to the people and products of ESP, it is clear that they pass this test with flying colors. ESP began as a humble replacement part shop 43 years ago in Tokyo, Japan. People quickly realized that their parts were higher quality than most things on the market so ESP became a destination for custom guitar projects and OEM manufacturing. Their custom work launched a frenzy of interest by world-class players, pushing the brand into full guitar and bass production and a new offices in New York City and ultimately Los Angeles, California.

Fast forward to today, ESP remains a premium manufacturer that caters to nearly every type of guitarist and a full range of price points. At UpFront Guitars you will find a beautiful selection of ESP's from both their USA and Japanese factories. These guitars are crafted by some of the world,s best talent, and are guarenteed to inspire the working professional, hobbyist or collector. Come see what ESP can do for you.
