This one is labeled as an ESP USA Factory Tour, but it's not very long, more a promo video IMO, still some might find it interesting.

EDIT: it was posted by Guitar World magazine with the following text.
Check out this look into the new ESP US factory where they¹re building new ESP USA in North Hollywood. Background music by KXM, George Lynch¹s band with Dug Pinnick and Ray Luzier.

Everybody can have his own thoughts about what happens when different brands are produced side by side....:naughty:

I have a lovely 62 Hofner reissue bass that is very special. Idon't remember when i got it. Back when they first apeared around 2003 ?
I thought for those that don't know, here is how they are made, and mine as well.
It is amazing to see the O'l boy cut those fret slots by eye..
wtf! allot of hand work. Interesting.
Enjoy!

Oh.. just turn the sound down and watch.

And here it is. Beautiful workmanship on the
62s as far as I can see. They do take a little work, but can get an amazing number of timbers if you work on it.
these, like a good violin improve tone wise with age.

You need to have one of Framus! I went to thier factory in 2014 and was just amazed at how they build everything! the factory generates their own power as well. Germany generates 75% of their power from Solar and Wind! How come we can't do that here in the States?
