I just got this guitar . It says ESP Custom in the headstock.
"ESP Custom Guitars" on the back.
M shaped body with a bolt on neck.
Skull inlays a la KH models.
ESP passive pickups
ESP floyd rose trem
Any clue about exact model, year .... ?
Give me the serial numbers brotha! Should be one on the back of the headstock and on the plate where it bolts on!
Hi Travis ! thanks, unfortunately there is no serial number, it looks like it didnt have one or it was peeled off (theres a mark like if there was a sticker once) . The plate was the only thing replaced and does not have the original one.
By the way I forgot to say the pickups are not the classic open coils. They have a plastic cover like EMG but with the ESP name on em.
Except for the passive pickups it sounds like an early 90's ESP M-II Deluxe. It's essentially a KH-2 before they made it a model. I have one, too.
Yes i was thinking that but according to the catalog ESP M-II was labeled "ESP Deluxe" on the headstock and mine says "ESP Custom".
The pickup thing is killing me, never saw them before but look genuine.
It is listed as an M-II Deluxe, but it says "Custom" on the headstock.
From the 1993 catalog:
Thanks mate i checked that 93 catalog but guessed it was "Deluxe" what was stamped on the headstock ... it is quite difficult to see it .
Bridge is dfntly a Schaller unlike the one in the catalog ... that and the pickup im thinking maybe the guitar is even older ...
Did these have serials stamped in the neck joint ?

Esp custom M2 with skull & crossbone inlays.
They made a lot of this model from 1991 to 1993.
