ESP E-II ST-2 FM Maple TE – electric guitar review with “Top Gear” award

TopGuitar is proud to announce that the ESP E-II ST-2 FM Maple TE electric guitar was reviewed in the April issue of the magazine and received a “Top Gear” editors’ award this month. The instrument was delivered for review by ESP distributor in Poland, Sound Service.

Below are some excerpts from a successful review by gear department editor Mikolaj Sluzewski, which may serve as reasons for the award:

“If you are searching for a high-end superstrat type of guitar, with all the characteristics of a professional instrument such as dependability, certain playing comfort, proven hardware and killer sound, take a look at what one of the leading brands, Japan’s ESP, has to offer in this matter.”

“The string action is set not too low, letting the strings vibrate freely and minimizing unwanted fretbuzz, while making the guitar incredibly easy to play thanks to soft string gauge.”

“ESP E-II ST-2 FM Maple TE will definitely appeal to all the shredding followers of Guthrie Govan and the rest of Jamtrack Central guitar cream, but by combining the old and the new with great style, it will also get recognition from the fans of 80’s style hard rock and heavy metal.”

The latest issue of TopGuitar magazine is available across Poland in Empik and Ruch press retail networks, in the online store (, and as mobile version for tablets and smartphones using iOS ( or Android ( operating systems.
