NAMM 2021 isn't taking place in the physical realm this year, but you'll find all the hottest January gear launches in our guide to the biggest guitar, amp and pedal releases of 2021 so far.

The cancelation of NAMM 2021's physical form hasn't stopped ESP from unveiling a boatload of new electric guitars

The company's Phase 1 and 2 drops have already seen the introduction of the Arctic Metal Series – a color-flipped version of its popular single-pickup Black Metal Series – a bunch of new LTD Deluxe models, and the new Josh Middleton LTD Signature Series JM-II, to name a few.

And with its Phase 3 product drop, ESP has revealed plenty more guitars to sink your teeth into. Chief among them is the USA Eclipse FR Jawbreaker.

It features a chambered mahogany body with either a flamed maple or quilted maple top – customers can choose their preference – finished in a design reminiscent of the classic confectionary item, the jawbreaker.

The guitar's construction is completed by a three-piece mahogany neck and 22-extra jumbo-fret ebony fingerboard with split-flag inlays.

Pickup configuration can be customized, too, with a range of Seymour Duncan (passive) and EMG (active) models available.

Other features include Sperzel Trim-Lok tuners, Dunlop strap locks, bone nut and a Floyd Rose bridge.

The company will be revealing plenty more new models – among them the return of Kirk Hammett's KH-3 Spider – in its new ESP Presents 2021 video streaming series.
