The crew at ESP Guitars Australia have just received a shipment of spanking New 2018 Signature Series guitars, so let’s check them out!
The Lars Frederiksen (Rancid) Volsung is a machine for all things, rock, metal and punk. It features a mahogany body & neck with an ebony fingerboard. It’s also loaded with Seymour Duncan Distortion pickups customized by Lars with double rows of pole pieces and a metal cover, only available on the Volsung. All complimented with a Distressed Black Satin Finish, ready for the road!
The BB-600, Breaking Benjamin founder Ben Burnley’s signature model is quite a unique one! It’s an Eclipse shape with a 27” baritone scale neck, which is perfect for retaining tension at lower tunings. It has red Seymour Duncan JB/’59 pickups, and a Piezo bridge pickup with two output jacks. This allows you to send the signal from the JB/’59 pickups to one amplifier and the piezo pickup to another for incredible flexibility, great for both stage & studio.

The LTD Kami-4 is based on George’s original custom design that is now being offered in a more affordable LTD version, for the first time.

The Nergal (Behemoth) signature model features a grim aesthetic with its all black design. It features a set of Fishman Fluence pickups that offers both modern active & attacking modern passive tones. It has mahogany body and neck with an ebony fingerboard with glow in the dark side markers and the Behemoth “Trinity” logo over the 12th fret.
The Mille Petrozza (Kreator) is a modified version of the ESP Arrow. It features a mahogany body, maple neck and pau ferro fingerboard.
