The new Will Adler WA-200 Warbird from ESP is a true metal machine, just like its creator the Lamb of God Axeman Adler. Forerunners of new wave metal in America Lamb of God are known for heavy grooving riffs and dissonant chords.
When you pick up an ESP the first thing you notice is the solid strength of it. They're not heavy but theres a real sense of quality to the construction, you can rely on them to stand up to whatever you throw at it night after night, gig after gig.
Warbird in Distress
Based on a design form an album cover and one of Will's old skate decks the distressed warbird has a great look. This guitar is distressed, not to look like its been gigged with, but to look like its been through a warzone. Exactly what you'd expect from the gigging gear of such a heavy metal band.
ESP Guitars - one of the "Big 3" when it comes to making guitars & basses for Rock & Metal players. ESP guitars are available in two basic series - ESP & LTD. If it has ESP on the headstock then the guitar has been hand crafted in the ESP Japanese workshop. The quality of these ESP guitars is exceptional - they even have a custom shop that can custom make you anything you want! If the guitar has LTD on the headstock then these are made in other Far Eastern factories (normally Korea). These LTD guitars are made in larger quantities using an assembly line process - the quality is still great & the value for money is amazing.
Over the last 30 years ESP has attracted 100's of the worlds best known guitarists & bass players.
