A few months back, we peeked into some of the insane builds that the Ibanez LA Custom Shop have put out and picked a few of our favorites. Check out our Top 5 LACS Builds That We All Need to see those! Unfortunately, your average guitarist doesn’t have access to those guitars. The good news is that there is a really insane custom shop from ESP that anyone has access to. As long as you’re willing to pay for it that is!

Here’s our Top 5 ESP Custom Shop Guitars That We All Need!

1. Hottest TE Ever

Check out this insane TE-7! An Evertune bridge for maximum tuning stability, a Quilted Maple top, Birds Eye Maple fretboard, and a inline horizon headstock. This is hands down the nicest TE I’ve ever seen! This gorgeous beast belongs to Bobby from Fit For A King.

2. Pink Goodness

Stephen Carpenter (Deftones) fans will recognize this one! The trans-pink finish is super unique and just look at those gold Fishman Pickups! All of the unique visual appointments definitely look sick, making this SC sig stand out on stage!

3. mmmmmm… Maple

With a beautiful Flamed Maple top to rival even the PRS wood library selections, check out this amazing Horizon custom, which looks a lot like a crazy Ben Savage signature. Especially with that headstock! This has to be one of the greatest tops/finishes that I’ve seen come from ESP. I’d love to see a production model that looks like this.

4. Oxygen is Magical

Super unique Oxidized Iron finish on a Horizon custom! You don’t see stuff like this every day. This would look great as a production model!


5. Star Power

This ESP star shape is usually only available in Japan. Sammy Duet of Goatwhore has these two signatures from the Custom Shop. Can we get these in the USA already?!
