Celebrate a classic metal album with ESP

Metallica's Ride the Lightning took the metal world by storm back in 1984. To celebrate the 30th anniversary of this album and their relationship with Metallica, ESP has created this LTD model guitar with a graphic finish that pays homage to the iconic album cover. Only 300 Ride the Lightning guitars will be made.

You just can't go wrong with a set of EMG active humbuckers

Like white-hot lightning through butter, the ESP LTD Ride the Lightning can easily carve through even the densest mix, all the while delivering the high-flying sustain that started a revolution and launched the sound of modern metal. What kind of weapon of mass destruction could give the Ride the Lightning a killer edge like this? Nothing less than matched set of EMG 60 and 81 pickups. Fire up the afterburners, get out of the way, and let the face-melting tone begin.

ESP's Mirage body style delivers amazing comfort and tone

With feedback from their impressive stable of artists, ESP worked tirelessly to get their Mirage body style just right. The M series is all about comfort, tone, and sustain. When you're rocking hard night after night, the last thing your need is an axe that hangs on you like a boat anchor. M series guitars fit you like a glove, they're lightweight, and they're nicely balanced, so you don't have to expend energy keeping your neck from diving. Try on an ESP M series solidbody electric guitar for size. You won't look back.
