The "Ghost Soldier" guitar was created by master luthier Masao Ohmuro. Two years after enrolling in ESP's Guitar Craft Academy in 1990, Ohmuro was asked to stay on as instructor. He continued teaching and began building and repairing guitars for ESP shops and artists.
Today, GuitarWorld.com presents the exclusive premiere of Whitechapel's new lyric video for "Vicer Exciser." The song is from the new re-issue of The Somatic Defilement. As a bonus, Whitechapel are also giving you the chance to win a new ESP guitar signed by the entire band!
Luckily, musicians in search of quality signature gear — from guitars to amps to effects to pickups — don't have to worry about that nonsense. Generally, gear manufacturers work closely with their signature artists, in some cases, right down to the tiniest of details (Some artists repeatedly send back the prototypes until they're perfect).
In the following video, Guitar World's Paul Riario examines the new ESP LTD Deluxe Eclipse model, the EC-1000T/CTM. The guitar features a gold-plated, locking TonePros bridge and ESP locking tuners, as well as EMG-81 and EMG-60 pickups.
