    Although this news is about half a year late, it looks like Josh is now with ESP, good for him.

    He had some interesting signatures with Legator, one that immediate springs to mind was his 28.5" TOM Baritone 7 String

    That would have been an awesome chug machine to own, but Legator is Legator. Don't know how ESP run things but it would be cool if he could have a Sig 7 or 8, I doubt they'll introduce a 9 but hey with Steph and Josh on the roster who knows at this point.

    I really like that Legator /\

    He probably is more suited to ESP now though. Especially with the questionable quality from Legator.

    Also, his rig is literal goals.

    Good for him! He should stay far away from that shit show over at Legator and save his name from that brand. I feel like ESP suits him pretty well too. I look forward to seeing if he has any sigs in the future.

    Wish he'd do something else besides Emmure but he's making money and I can't fault him for that

    Definitely would get a ESP/LTD sig if he gets one

    I don't know who he is at all, but I could definitely see ESP making a guitar similar to that Legator. ESP is one of the few who still puts TOM bridges on guitars - especially 7-8 strings. In fact, Andy James had a 7 string Horizon, and I suspect this guy Josh will get something similar.

    I’d love to see a new 8 string model from ESP. And a 9 would be amazing!

    As long as it’s not black or white with a fucking trash-ass brown fretboard.

    It’s almost 2019. No more being subtle about how fucking ugly that looks.

    Good for him.
    Funny how Legator is slowly losing their endorsers.

    Can some one explain what's wrong with Legator? All I know is they look pretty cheap and nasty

    You pretty much answered your own question.

    Surprisingly, not a YouTube famous guitarist. :lol:

    Dude has been in some reasonably popular metalcore bands from the early aughts.

    :rofl::rofl::lol:

    So true.
    Looks like someone wiped their ass with a maple fretboard.
    Literally dreadful.

    Not using legator anymore - Huge improvement
    Using ESP - Greatest improvement

    Agreed. ;)

    I've always been a fan of Josh's style. He writes some of the most unique, disjointed riffs. Haven't listened to him in Emmure, but Danza IIII is one of the coolest albums ever.

    And that 7-string Tele is verrrry nice.
