It still looks legit to me. It's definitely been refinished, and the pickups are new, but I said that in my first post here. I'd like to see another photo of the volute (bump on the back of the headstock).I've......MORE »
No wristbands? Those straps look comfortable and well made, so I picked one up as well. I had one of those Pods ages ago. I actually recorded a cover of Mein Teil on it and it sounds like ass. My guess is he hooked......MORE »
Most definitely fake. Lots of tells, but the headstock shape and ESP circle logo on the back are two easy tells.
There are a bunch of other tells as well, but no need to list them for someone else who is looking to......MORE »
The guitar was built in one of the Korean factories that build guitars for dozens of brands. World Musical Instruments (for instance) builds for LTD and Schecter, but also for other brands like Samik, PRS SE, Dean, DBZ,......MORE »
Well, the question is where else will you find one? Not very common, and no other ones on eBay. If you want it, that's the price you'll have to pay.
But I don't expect that anyone will pay that price for......MORE »
Looks much better with the reversed headstock. Plus you get a properly tight low E and a more bendable high E. I'm not sure why ESP ruins all of their guitars with the non-reversed one. I have GAS for that military......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 »
