He has ESP custom models coming out, that is. Genre hopping guitarist Alex Skolinck has been added to the roster of ESP endorsers with his new Alex Skolnick EC and LTD AS-600 signature guitars, available in early 2014. Via Blabbermouth, the Testament guitarist says he was initially skeptical:

I’m thrilled to report that the project has succeeded on all counts.
