When ESP announced their massive wave of new guitars for 2022, we were all salivating for their arrival. Although it may be a bit later than we had hoped, here are some models that have made their way to Australia and are in stores now!

Feast your eyes on this M-1 Custom ’87 Dark Metallic Purple. Based on the legendary original ESP M-1 model, with a neck-thru-body construction for fast access to the highest frets. An alder body and three-piece extra thin U-shaped maple neck, a top-mounted Floyd Rose 1000 bridge and a single Seymour Duncan TB-6 Distortion pickup with a push-pull control for coil splitting, and an EMG PA-2 boost switch for when you need that extra push of raw power.

Next up is the EC-1000T in Charcoal Burst which combines a traditional full-thickness mahogany body with a quilted maple top. Its three-piece mahogany neck offers a matching headstock finish and a Macassar ebony fingerboard with white Pearloid ESP flag inlays and 22 extra-jumbo stainless steel frets. Powered by a set of direct-mount Fishman Fluence Open Core Classic Humbucker pickups. Each pickup offers three voicings, selectable with push-pull controls.

The SN-1000HT Fire Blast offers tone and playability that’s as intense as it looks with its textured, sandblasted Fire Blast finish over a swamp ash body. Components include a black bone nut, a brushed black pickguard, dome control knobs, LTD locking tuners, and a Hipshot hardtail bridge with string-thru-body. It features a set of Fishman Fluence Modern Humbuckers (alnico in the neck position, ceramic in the bridge), with a push-pull control to activate each pickup’s second voicing.

A truly spectacular example of the MH shape, the MH-1000 delivers it with an outstanding arched quilted maple top in a transparent Black Ocean finish. Features a mahogany body and a three-piece extra thin u-shaped neck, the Macassar ebony fingerboard features 24 extra-jumbo stainless steel frets and offset white Pearloid block inlays. Components on the MH-1000 include a Floyd Rose 1000SE bridge and a set of direct-mount Fishman Fluence Modern Humbuckers (alnico in the neck position, ceramic in the bridge), with a push-pull control.

The LTD Mirage Deluxe ’87 in Metallic Gold has an alder body and a three-piece extra thin U-shaped maple neck. These guitars feature a Floyd Rose 1000 bridge and a pickup set that includes a Seymour TB-6 Duncan Distortion (with original style bobbins and a push-pull control to split the coils) in the bridge and a Hot Rail single coil in the neck position. 

ALL THAT IS GOLD!
This Vintage Gold Satin EC-1000T CTM features a single-cutaway mahogany body shape with the finish colour carefully formulated to match the natural yellowing of a decades-old guitar. Includes a TonePros locking TOM bridge and tailpiece, LTD locking tuners, a three-piece mahogany neck and a Macassar ebony fingerboard with white Pearloid ESP flag inlays. The tone is generated with a set of direct-mount Fishman Fluence Open Core Classic Humbucker pickups offering three voicings, selectable with push-pull controls.

The TE-1000 in Snow White adds all the elements that make it perfect for modern music styles. It offers set-thru construction for smooth access to the highest frets, with a mahogany body and a three-piece maple neck. Black binding helps define the shape of its body, neck, and matching-finish headstock. This guitar also has a brushed black pickguard, a Hipshot hardtail bridge with string-thru body, LTD locking tuners, and a set of Fishman Fluence Modern Humbuckers (alnico in the neck position, ceramic in the bridge), with a push-pull control to activate each pickup’s second voicing.

The M-1001NT adds an amazing quilted maple top over its alder body, finished in transparent Charcoal Burst that allows the figured wood to grab the spotlight. The Macassar ebony fingerboard features 24 extra-jumbo frets and offset mother-of-pearl dot inlays. Its reverse headstock has a matching finish in quilted maple and white binding on the neck and headstock. Components on the M-1001NT include LTD locking tuners, a TonePros locking TOM bridge with string-thru-body, and a single aggressive direct-mount EMG 81TW with push-pull control for coil splitting.

The EC-1000T CTM in the Violet Shadow finish comes with a set of direct-mount Fishman Fluence Open Core Classic Humbucker pickups offering three voicings, and selectable with push-pull controls absolutely rocks! The EC-1000T/CTM also includes a full-thickness single-cutaway mahogany body shape, a Macassar ebony fingerboard with white Pearloid ESP flag inlays and 22 extra-jumbo stainless steel frets, LTD locking tuners, and TonePro locking TOM bridge and tailpiece.
