The '87 Series is a a weaponized shred-ready fleet of electric guitars that reprise ESP's late-80s guitar design, and it will be joined by new signature models for Javier Reyes of Animals As Leaders, Stephen Carpenter of Deftones, Nergal of Behemoth, Brian "Head" Welch of Korn, and Alex Wade of Whitechapel.
