It's an SV standard.  Maple neck, alder wings (I believe), ebony fretboard.  In dire need of fret polishing by the looks of the picture, they look pretty crusty.......MORE »

Mid 80s.  Maple neck, alder body, ebony fretboard.  Very nice condition.  Wouldn't surprise me that it's a refinish (the logo looks a bit wonky to me, but it might be the angle because the headstock and TRC......MORE »

Serial number says it's an 08.  The rest of the serial number seems to say it was made on the Monday of week 36.  Too lazy to look up what week that was. Sorry to chime-in Dave.  It may have originally been......MORE »

Road King replied to the forum post Yet another NGD - again not ESP

Congrats on the new guitar. I'm staying away from ESP until they offer a Potbelly, Horizon, or a non-trem Forest in a finish I like. Must be an ESP Standard version. None of that E-II stuff. inb4nevergonnahappen I do......MORE »

Pushead replied to the forum post is my LTD EC1000 a fake?

Most of my Eclipses are ESP, but I do have an LTD Baritone.  From the small pictures, it looks suspect to me.  I've never seen one with that control cover, I'm used to them looking like this:   The......MORE »

Pushead replied to the forum post Help getting more sustain of my ESP MX-250

Also if you're using a noise suppression pedal or multi-effect with a noise suppressor, you might need a different setting for the MX than the Gibson.  The MX might just have a lower volume output than the Gibson. ......MORE »

Pushead replied to the forum post Help getting more sustain of my ESP MX-250

Well, your problem could come from a bunch of places.  What's causing the lack of sustain?  Is the string fretting out or buzzing?  Is the wiring not making great contact, causing the signal to cut in and......MORE »

They're certainly expensive, but when you compare the price to an ESP Original or other Custom Shop level ESP guitars, it's right in line.  I wouldn't say there's markup because of James' name, though it's probably the......MORE »

I had an R0 for a while.  It has a much smaller neck, but I wouldn't qualify it thin by modern standards.  Certainly not the same size as the "60's neck" Gibson USA guitars.  I'd say it's only slightly bigger......MORE »

Pushead replied to the forum post Pawn shop discovery

Good price for that guitar.  The 400 level LTDs are usually a lot of guitar for the price.  Desirable?  I think the EX shape is hit or miss for people, not a lot of middle ground.  If you were looking to......MORE »
