Fuckin killer dude. Always liked those Arrows. Never bought one cuz I think they'd look too big on me. I'm 5'10", but still, even a normal strat looks kinda big on me for some reason. Anyway, the reverse headstock is rad as......MORE »
You might want to remove the knob first. See if the pot doesn't get a chance to fully lock in the down position because the knob hits the body.But yeah, it sounds like a new pot is in order.......MORE »
Don't know enough about the guitar to guess the wood, other than the maple veneer. Not sure when they stopped making the model or using the Duncan Designed pickups, either.
Looks to be in great shape. For the......MORE »
I'd have to compare them in person, but I think the type the kind Professor is using looks to be a bit more rugged than what String Swing is offering. Might be an optical illusion, but they look to be a shorter distance......MORE »
The guitar is legit. I don't know how much of the wear is "normal" and how much the owner put on it. I don't think the Floyd is chrome, I think it's just really corroded. You can see the same discoloration......MORE »
I'm not a fan of the hangers that stick that far out from the wall. There is quite a bit more torque being exerted on the contact points in the slat wall plate.Add to that, the screw connection to allow the angle it......MORE »
Many people use a teflon or plumber's tape around the bottom of the bar to help it fit tighter in the the bridge.I've fixed this issue on a few of my Floyd equipped guitars by buying a new arm assembly. The new bar will......MORE »
Yeah.. top strings are not even overused in my hands.. The only reason I won't like to get a string above 50, is that I find the neck a bit weak.. But well, I'll just give it a try then.......MORE »
The logo is the only thing that's somewhat funky to me, but the "Standard" looks to be the same as the 2013 ESP Standard font. I think that was the transition year, for ESP. E-II started for Europe and Australia......MORE »
There's a button to add a photo to your post. Since you're new, it'll probably make it pretty small, but we might be able to make it out that way. Or, if you're the Rezamatrix from RigTalk, post it there, and I'll......MORE »
I've got an FB-200 from the same era, early 2000s. It plays pretty well and doesn't have any quality issues. I'd imagine the MV-200 is about the same.
Another good guitar I see going for cheap most times is the Viper 400.......MORE »
Twenty years in the ESP Forums. How many good guys are left? How many stayed that way? This forum needs a hero. So be their hero, slob. Be their angel, their monument, be anything they need you to be... or be none of it. You......MORE »
Not necessarily. In the 80s "Custom" on the headstock meant the guitar had 24 frets. In the early 90s, "Custom" sometimes meant neck-through construction.If you have a photo of the entire guitar (especially the......MORE »
