First time I'm going to buy an ESP and I'm not able to distinguish a Chinese copy from the original one. Here are some information and pictures:
- No certificate
- No bill
- No additional case contents except guitar
- Hard case is also LTD.
If you can have a look at the pictures and share your comments about this guitar I'd be happy. Thanks.
The guitar is legit, though I'd be worried about the different watermarks on the pictures.
Body shape is good.
Serial number looks good.
Stamp is good.
Neck plate serial number is good.
Esp logo fits.
Serial number looks like its a 2002-2003 model
Definitely real. Chinese copies have different headstock shapes, the ESP logo would look wierd, the Floyd is a big one, the Chinese use cheap fakes.
This one has all the right stuff.
It comes from seeing them a lot. You aquire an eye for it.
