While I own, play and love more than my fair share of imported guitars, I still prefer electric models made in the good ol’ U. S. of A.
After all, Americans invented the electric guitar, and we design and build them like no one else. So it deeply warmed my heart earlier this year when ESP announced its USA Series Eclipse, Horizon and M-III models, which are the company’s first guitars made at its brand-new factory in North Hollywood, California.
We took a look at ESP’s classic-inspired single-cutaway Eclipse model.
Thanks to this just-posted video, you can take a tour of ESP's new ESP USA factory, which is in North Hollywood, California. You also can see how the company's new ESP USA models are built by hand. The music in the video is by KXM, featuring George Lynch.
