Double ring tuners would be a 1960RI thing.  I'd bet on the terminals flipped.  It happens to me at least 1 out of 4 times.Here's a simple example of the double-step staining.  When ever I hear "black cherry"......MORE »

Pushead replied to the forum post ESP LTD M-10 Made in Vietnam vs Made in China

For what it's worth (in a two-year-old thread), I have a Chinese made LTD EC-401b (Eclipse baritone) which is surprisingly good.  My main guitars are ESP Standard Eclipses, but I was looking for an inexpensive......MORE »

Pushead replied to the forum post Yet another Kirk Hammett Red LP thread

Seems likely.  Looking good.  The picture of Kirk's that floats around makes it looks like a 2-step dye finish, a black first, which is sanded down to keep the black in the "deep" part of the wood, then the cherry......MORE »

Pushead replied to the forum post Pots for EMG pickup

I agree with Guiguitarz, you can probably spray a bit of contact cleaner and exercise the pots (volume up and down a bunch of times) and solve the problem.But if you've decided that replacement is what you want to do, let's......MORE »

Yeah, no damage to the paint on the poly finish guitars.  I use old t-shirts on my stands, with no problems.  No worries about issues with the neck having the guitars hang, there is significantly more force enacted......MORE »

2013 was the first year of the transition from ESP Standard to E-II.  In the US we had LTD Elite during that short period.  The Overseas Market (anywhere that isn't North America or Japan) kept the same models and......MORE »

Road King replied to the forum post ESP Phoenix pickups. Hmmm

I like the EMG 60A or the SD Pearly Gates in the neck. Maybe the EMG 57/66 set could give you the mix of active and passive properties you want. The Dimarzios already mentioned are also a good choice.......MORE »

Pushead replied to the forum post How much are custom painted guitars>?

Figure the base price for an ESP Custom Shop guitar is around $4000 USD, options and hardware, custom inlays and graphics increase the price.  If you'd like a better answer, fill out a custom order form here and bring......MORE »

Pushead replied to the forum post Tones Too Warm!

I made this last summer, a few days after receiving a new amp.  There are a few places where it drops out to just single instrument sounds.  Neither of the guitars are EMG, and based on what you've said, they're......MORE »

Pushead replied to the forum post Cat chew toy

Yeah, you could have it sanded down a bit and rebuffed.  You may even just try rubbing it with an old, soft piece of rubber (part of some people's sanding/smoothing process during finishing) to even out the extra "relic"......MORE »

Recorded sound (especially close miked) doesn't always mimic the sound in the room.  Looking into some of the specifics of your cab, another thing to experiment with is to maybe close the back of the cab.  It might......MORE »

Pushead replied to the forum post Tones Too Warm!

It doesn't sound like a wiring issue to me.  I'd suspect all that's good.  Strings may have a bit to play on the twang/bite, but it's not going to be drastic enough to make the Horizon sound significantly more like......MORE »

Yeah, that's pretty much how I'd expect those two guitars to sound when run through the same setup.  It seems like the EMG sound (and perhaps humbuckers in general?) isn't what you're looking for.  The mahogany......MORE »
