LTD
Instruments currently built in Korea and Indonesia since 1995. Distributed by the ESP Guitar Company, of North Hollywood, CA.
ESP introduced the LTD trademark of budget instruments in 1995. These guitars are designed and distributed by the ESP Guitar Company and are produced in Korea and Indonesia (mainly lower-priced models). LTD guitars and basses are mostly based on Japanese-produced ESP production and signature models. Instead of introducing a budget line of ESP-branded guitars and basses, they developed an entirely new trademark and all LTD-branded instruments typically have no mention of ESP on the headstock (although ESP may show up on truss-rod covers or other locations). Throughout the 1990s and early 2000s, ESP continued to expand the LTD line to the point where more LTD models were sold than ESP. Currently, LTD's lineup heavily outweighs ESP current model production and, typically, they offer price points between $300 and $1,500.
