ESP Explorer Guitars

The ESP Explorer is actually just an Explorer shaped guitar. It is actually called the ESP FX-260. It has been reviewed over at Ultimate Guitar as well as a few other guitar forums around the internet.

Having never owned an FX260 Explorer shaped guitar, the only information I have is what I have gathered through reading internet forums and magazine articles. I don't have any musician friends who actually play the FX260 either.

ESP Explorer Shaped GuitarThe ESP FX260 doesn't mimic the Explorer shape exactly but it gives the player that explorer feel instead.

From a distance musicians and bystanders alike both invision the guitar as Explorer and some even call it so. The FX260 can be seen with all its specs here at

With 22 frets and a set neck coupled to a Mohagany body, the FX-260 has everything you need for a fine-sounding electric guitar plus the cosmetic splash of the Explorer style. There's just something about a guitar with that Explorer style body, it captivates the audience every time.

ESP guitars are a Japanese company that have been around since the 1970's. I just recently learned that ESP actually is an abbreviation for "electric sound products", go figure. The ESP guitar line has always had ties to the heavy metal alliance.

The sound, the look, not sure if it's a combination of the two, but they fit the hard-rock and heavy metal profile perfectly. These guitars have aligned themselves with the metal crowd for years.

This is all the specific info I have right now but if you'd like to add to this description I'd appreciate any information sent to me right here. I'm looking for descriptions, pictures, production years, availablilty, and that sort of info. If you can help out, please do.

If you are looking to buy or get an idea on prices, Same Day Music stocks plenty of ESP guitars and equipment here.
