We know you will love how it feels after we give it the ol' tour dog once over too!

Special thanks to ESP who has not only supported us for over two decades, but have also provided these incredible guitars that we are honored to play live and pass to you for future rock enjoyment!

Something about selling an instrument played by and set up by us to you all (to be enjoyed for years) just feels poetic to us, we've never offered anything like this before and can't wait to see where these guitars will find their happy homes!
