Pushead replied to the forum post ESP LTD Deluxe EC-1000 Finish Question

If you're looking to keep the matte finish, you don't want any polish at all.  If you just want to clean it, use a lightly damp cloth and that will take care of it.Eventually, as you play it, the matte finish will smooth......MORE »

Pushead replied to the forum post i dont know anything about this guitar

Without seeing a better picture of the guitar, it's hard to determine which model it is (or might be) and the condition.  But realistically, in good shape an early 2000-ish H-300 with the stock (or unknown) pickups is......MORE »

Pushead replied to the forum post i dont know anything about this guitar

Looks to be a late 90s or early 2000s H-200 or H-300.  Pickups should be duncan designed (if they haven't been replaced).  Possibly an ash body with a translucent finish, I can't believe they'd do it with basswood.......MORE »

I like my Root strat. Next I think I want to get a Jeff Beck strat in surf green & put ivory or white SA's in it. I had a couple USA deluxe strats back around 2007, and they played as smooth as silk. I agree that the KH-2......MORE »

Road King replied to the forum post Yes...another NGD...still not ESP

Nice strat. I prefer bolt-on necks since they are mostly non-painted and have a durable feel to them IMO. It is not easy to find them with no inlays and non-trems. Jim Root sigs are like the only option. I also like the Phil......MORE »

Yeah, it's just a "normal" black.  Not sure how it's achieved, but rust is fairly common.  Especially if you (or a previous owner) is a heavy sweater.  I usually just color over the rust with a black Sharpie......MORE »
