Electric Sound Products or 'ESP' started business in 1975. At the time ESP produced replacement guitar parts but quickly gained a reputation and a following in Japan for the impeccable quality of these parts.

In 1983 ESP introduced themselves to the US market producing custom instruments for local New York artists. Bands such as Living Colour, Kiss, and The Rolling Stones also began to use ESP guitars.

During this period in the '80s, ESP began producing necks and bodies for larger guitar manufacturers, and it wasn't long until ESP became an iconic name in the guitar world.
