In a real departure from the norm, ESP introduces a completely new product series in 2015. The entirely new Tombstone acoustic-electric instruments represent quality and playability combined with affordability. All models incorporate a dovetail set-neck joint for solid and reliable performance with a classic look and feel and high-quality components like a GraphTech nut and saddle. Each acoustic, with the exception of the GL-J2E and A-300E, features smooth satin finished necks for comfortable playing.
Tombstone’s introductory guitars include the A-300E and A-430E, an auditorium shape/size guitar with a solid Sitka spruce top. The A-300E offers mahogany back and sides in a Black finish and a B-Band T-35 preamp with onboard tuner. The A-430E has rosewood back and sides in Natural Gloss finish, with a Fishman Isys+ preamp with on-board tuner.
The Tombstone D-320E and D-430E have a traditional dreadnought shape and resulting impressive acoustic volume. The D-320E features a solid red cedar top and ovangkol back and sides in Natural Satin finish, while the D-430E offers a solid Sitka spruce top, rosewood back and sides in Natural Gloss finish, gold hardware, and a Fishman Isys+ preamp.
For players who like a jumbo-sized acoustic, the J-310E and J-430E are perfect choices. Both guitars have solid Sitka spruce tops. The J-310E offers sapelle back and sides in Natural Satin finish, while the J-430E has rosewood back and sides in Natural Gloss.
The first Signature Series model in the Tombstone brand appropriately goes to George Lynch with the GL-J2E, a jumbo acoustic-electric with a solid Sitka spruce top, flamed maple back and sides, all in Tobacco Sunburst finish. It offers a unique 5-piece maple/walnut neck, a rosewood fingerboard, and a Fishman Presys+ preamp. Tombstone’s first batch of new models also includes the JB-320E, a jumbo-sized bass that offers a solid red cedar top, ovangkol back and sides, and a Fishman Presys+ preamp.
