Ever since purchasing an EC-400 archtop earlier this year I’ve become a big fan of ESP’s guitars, so I thought I’d point out what looks to be the largest promotional guitar giveaway ever… or at least the largest in my memory.
In a PR stunt that’s bound to get them some attention from the shredders out there ESP, in cooperation with Hot Topic, and local darlings the Deftones (hehe, I used to practice in the room next to these maniacs, and they were freakin’ loud!) will be giving away a whopping 300 LTD SC-200 Stephen Carpenter Signature guitars. Yep, 300!
Among other things the guitar features what ESP calls a “well-balanced” basswood body, maple neck (25.5“ scale length,) rosewood fretboard with 24 extra-jumbo frets, a pair of Duncan designed HB-102 humbuckers, volume & tone controls, 3-way pickup switching, and a tune-o-matic bridge with string-thru-nody construction.
The giveaway is part of a promotion for the Deftones’ latest release, Saturday Night Wrist. More information is available at ESP’s Deftones Contest page (Sorry, Contest Deadline Now Passed,) or you can enter directly via Hot Topic.
