Pushead replied to the forum post Buying LTD-401. Is it authentic?

The volute (the bump at the base of the headstock and the back of the neck) seems really low, but it's a black guitar and an odd angle in the photo, so it may just be reflections in weird places.......MORE »

We'd need pics to give you a better idea of legitimacy, but the 100 level LTDs are not models that would typically be faked.I'm not sure what history you'd want to know. It's a fairly nice guitar in the low price range. Based......MORE »

Pushead replied to the forum post M-17 ¿True or fake?

It's a 2016 model. Not sure why it wouldn't have the block logo at the 12th fret, or have 24 frets instead of 22, but the guitar is real.It may be a special run of the model for the store it was originally purchased from.......MORE »

Some of those scratches seem pretty deep. I'd guess sanding the metal piece down to get the scratches out would probably make the metal sheet a bit too thin. You might be better off drilling out the rivets and making a new......MORE »

Yeah, the string angle past the nut on guitars like LPs and SGs is basically like bending a note. Also, the angle of the headstock on a Gibson causes more binding at the nut. I believe the angle is less on an ESP and......MORE »
