With its beveled edges, sweeping curves in just the right places and asymmetrical shape with a dramatically extended bass bout, the ESP Arrow Series model is one of the coolest interpretations of the timeless V-style solidbody electric guitar ever conceived.

While the list prices of ESP's Original Series Arrow models exceed $4,000, ESP also offers LTD brand versions of the awesome Arrow at much more affordable prices. The LTD Arrow-1000 shares a lot in common with the ESP Arrow model, including similar stunning finish options, but at a lower cost that makes it an ideal choice for players who love the Arrow’s style.
