BABYMETAL and ESP have collaborated 2 times in the past, to make a 6 string guitar (Mini-Arrow BABYMETAL) and a 7 string guitar (ESP E-II Arrow-7) in 2016 during the METAL RESISTANCE tour, and to make a 7 string guitar (BABYMETAL MF-7 MINI) and 9 string guitar (E-II MF-9 BABYMETAL) in 2019 for the METAL GALAXY tour.
This time around they are selling accessories for guitars, including a strap with 2 designs, a cleaning cloth, and a guitar pick.
