I'm sure everyone's struck a pose or two that they regret. Are there any ways to pose with a guitar and not look like a total dork?

they're standing there holding guitars. What's the problem? I must be missing something.

They do look like dorks and also what's the point of having 3 unknown guys 2 of which are actually holding LTD's?

It's like going on the Fender site and seeing a photo of some unknown people holding Squire guitars or going to the Gibson website and seeing people holding Epiphones.
I don't get it?

Especially when people like George Lynch, Ronny Wood, Jeff Hanneman, Kirk Hammet, James Hetfield and Max Cavalera are playing ESP guitars.
Also guys go to espguitars.co.jp and see how many cool models they have that we'll never see here.
What happened to ESP???

Actually I don't see a problem with their clothes (in fact I'm wearing a T-shirt and have just taken off the hoodie I was wearing a while ago), or their haircuts and the fact I have no idea who they are just means I'm getting old and "past it".

So yeah that's what the people who are ESP's target demographic want to see. And that's why these guys, whoever they may be, are presumably making a small fortune, playing guitar and getting the things given to them free.

ESP is still a cool company, it's just it's now cool for the kids of today not for the kids of yesterday.

jono beat me to the punch... i agree

Not a knock, but i don't think "Lynch" is really selling alot of guitars for *ANY* company these days. It would be smart not to soley identify your company with such artists and or "Metallica". Lets get real folks ..glen

You know what sells guitars? Attractive women. That's one big reason I get Guitar World's Buyers Guide each year -- the pinups! They'd make ANY guitar look good.

Have you seen pictures of Satch, Gilbert, and Vai in their early days? Makes me laugh. It's called "sign of the times"

I don't know why ESP discontinued their 7-strings, they were beautiful, even the LTD's were cool!
What's with this site, www.espguitars.net, I've never seen it before, I found this beauty in it

Pretty cool, huh?

SWEET guitar. With a D-Tuna too! Would be cooler in a nice emerald green or dark violet, but sweet nonetheless.
