It's not great in my photo, but it says "Vintage Plus."  It's a replaced neck.  I believe the original had the dancing devil inlays from the KH-1.  I'm not sure where this guitar came from, but it was a photo......MORE »

Yeah, the Wavecaster was virtually empty.  A touch of blue and a bit of clear.  They have them sitting in a small open display of Metallica stuff, but it's pretty dark.  It's been in different spots each of the......MORE »

See, Kirk's Mummies have significantly less green than the ones that people make from the graphics or have painted on.  This was mine. The previous (and now current) owner had Bill/Strngth from the old ESP board do it.......MORE »

Not a real ESP, not an LTD with a replaced logo.  From the photos, it's hard to tell if a previous owners put actual EMGs in it, or if they're the same garbage with the fake logos that the Chinese builder put in.......MORE »

Pushead replied to the forum post mx-250 or gibson explorer

Buy the Gibson (or Epiphone, etc.) and put the EMGs in it.  Not a difficult thing to do, especially with the solderless system they use.  Fitting a battery in the Gibson cavity is tight, but possible.......MORE »

Way too new for a 48th street (by a decade, at least.)  You're near the top end of where I've seen similar guitars on ebay, but not outrageously so.  I'd expect to see it in the $7-900 range, but in exceptional......MORE »

Early to mid 90s, maple top, hard to tell the body wood from the neck plate pic.  Maple neck, rosewood fretboard.  Probably a Seymour Duncan JB at the bridge.Not sure I'd say that it's a "Custom Shop" guitar. ......MORE »

Spec-wise, they're essentially the same; mahogany body and necks, 24.75" scale.  The ESP (typically) has an ebony fretboard, the Gibson (typically) has rosewood.The ESP has a wider nut than the Gibson.  The Gibson......MORE »

It's a 2005 Eclipse II.  Mahogany body and neck, maple top with a quilted veneer over top.  Hard to tell the pickups, they might be the Seymour Duncan JB/59 which was stock on some models.  They're typically......MORE »
