“Anthrax is one of the most influential bands in the history of heavy metal,” says Jose Ferro, ESP executive VP. “They’ve been included as one of the ‘Big 4’ of thrash metal along with bands like Metallica and Slayer, and we’re proud to have Rob and Frank playing ESP.”
Based on his customized ESP Horizon, the ESP Rob Caggiano and LTD RC-600 are being offered in a STP (See Thru Purple) finish. The guitars use a bolt-on construction at 25.5” scale, and have an ash body, maple neck, and rosewood fingerboard with custom inlays and glow-in-the-dark side markers.
The instruments also feature two DiMarzio humbucking pickups, Tonepros locking TOM bridge and tailpiece, and Dunlop straplok hardware (the ESP version also includes Sperzel locking tuners, while the LTD version comes with ESP Locking tuners).
