    My guitar collection...!!!

    Hey guys!

    Long time no visit forum...

    It's looks like old forum is destoyed... as I can't see my thread here..! That is wonder - why they destroyed it..?!?))

    Ok, I decide to recreate my old thread about my collection..! I think many new people will be interesting to see my collection...!)

    For new members I woould like to say about me a little bit... I'm guitar collector long time, but I didn't post my guitars too much on forums...! I'm a private guitar collector and also I'm big fan of Metallica, Megadeth, Slayer and Pantera... so I'm collecting guitars of these bands! I'm not interseting in ussual signature or standart series guitars which is tons on ebay or anywhere... I'm interesting in personal artists guitars, back-up of artist's guitars, very low qty limits, special custom shops which was made for artists... etc...!!!

    As before - I want to apologise in advance for my english - my english is not so good because it's not my home language...!

    So..here is my guitars..! At first I post my guitars which was on the first my thred 2 years ago...!

    1. ESP "Season in the Abbys"

    I know that some years ago here was many disputes about that guitar - "what is that guitar, legit or not legit, exist or not exist... etc..." !
    I will tell you the truth about that guitar - it is old prototype of first Kerry's guitar which was made in 1990 together with first Kerry's own guitar, and it was kept  all time till 2000's in ESP Japan office in Tokio...!
    After Kerry's contract with ESP finished, one guy from ESP (who kept it) sold that guitar through one of ESP's retail shop in Tokio...!
    It was my target guitar many years - since I have seen "Season in the abbys" video in 92'..!!! Finally I get that guitar...!
    As you know guitar with same grafik never was in serial production - only Kerry had own them... and as you know in serial they produced KKV380 with crackle finish and eagle inlays... and black bolt-on!
    Guitar has old Kahler, Dimond inlays, old style truss rud cover - everything like on Kerry's own guitar...!

    Famous Donnington video.... Kerry with his ESP Season V...! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PdhXIPyMvt4









    2. Dave Mustaine's personal Jackson Y2KV "USA Flag"

    I think all Megadeth fan's know what is this!!! That guitar Dave sold in 2002 through Andy Brauer auction!
    It was signed by Dave, and 2 years ago was signed by Marty, because previous owner have know Marty personaly..!
    And it was seen on Rude Awakening.....
    Dave playing Holy wars on that guitar on Rude Awakning...!








    3. BC Rich Kerry King "Old Grey V" USA Handcrafted shop - Special order of Kerry's old shape guitar!

    That guitar was made in 2006 in BC's Handcrafted shop - it is same guitar as Kerry's late 80's BC Rich, which he used before he left in ESP...!
    One of Kerry's friend asked Kerry to make for him that guitar - and it was done...! Everything like on original Kerry's old guitar - old Kahler, Camo Dimarzio bridge pick-up, diamond inlays, switches, etc...!
    Never was in serial production.....!



    Famous Slayer's video "Raining blood" - Kerry with his Grey BC.....!


    4. Dean Dave Mustaine "Rust in peace" USA Custom shop guitar.

    Of cause this is not korea/indonesia version... it is mine custom order to Dean USA..!
    Long time of waiting of production - but finally I receive it...! As I know it is about 3-5 pcs exist in wordwide of the same USA guitar...! 





    Guitar during production ....






    5. Washburn Dimebag Darrell "Confederate flag" USA Custom shop

    This is my dream guitar all years - Dime's Wavy Confederate Flag!!! This Guitar also Chewy painted it and signed it in 2006...! It also was made for Dime's very good friend, and mine also friend...! This guitar is hardly valuable for me, as my friend who was own this guitar is passed away some years ago... so to me it's memory about my friend! As you see guitar have serial '1 of NONE" and "Dime's body logo"...! 
    That Grafik never was in serial production and it's just impossible to find Washburn with Confederate Wavey flag...!




    6. BC Rich WARLOCK “Red Marble” USA Handcrafted - personal Kerry King's guitar with KFK pentagram! 

    That guitar was made for Kerry to presentation it on Namm 2005, Kerry used it on namm and signed it, after that it was sold during the Namm show...! 
    It has "KFK"  pentagram on the back of headstock - as you know only persanal Kerry's guiatars have same pentagrams..!








    7. ESP KKV-380 Crackle Finish Custom Shop guitar

    No comments....I think all here know what is this...! Thouthands of Kerry's fans dreaming about this guitar.. but ESP produced totaly about 50 psc of these amazing guitars...! My first one is first run of Kerry's signature - early version from 95...! Early ones had srarse "crackles" on grafik...! 

    8. BC Rich KKVG1 Kerry King V "Trible Graphiс Generation 1 Guitar" Handcrafted shop!

    First Kerry's signature USA Handcrafted  BC Rich from 98...! It is first Generation which call Gen1, one of Kerry's mainstage guitar till this time..!
    I ever have seen only 4 of these... becides Kerry's two...! 


    9. BC Rich "Kerry King" KKVG2 Trible Graphik Generation 2 "Red Marble" USA Handcrafted shop!

    This is second generation of Kerry's guitars with Beast headstock...! Also interesting that neck has another shape than Gen1...!
    Kerry used that "Red marble" in 2004-2005 years...!

    Here we go......

    Fans of Jeff Hanneman - be cafefull - do not fall in schock... ha-ha !!! )))))))))))))))))))))))

    21. ESP Jeff's "Hineken"

    I think that most of you even didnt assumed that this guitar can be excist... and I think this guitar will be MORE UNBELIEVABLE for you to believe in it... but Yes - this guitar EXCIST! That is one of 2 which ever made in Tokio Custom shop personally for Jeff...! One was Jeff's mainstage and all of you know it, it is at his home now... second is there...!!!
    I can't tell how I get it...  but you must to know that this guitar is EXCIST! )))
    It is exactly same as Jeff's personal one - with Star inlays..! That is amazing guitar - it is just peace of ART! This is my Best guitar!!!
    I tryed to make more details pictures of this guitar - to your detail looking...))) 














    22. ESP Jeff's "Totenkopf"

    I think you also know this guitar! That is also second Jeff's ESP Totenkopf which ever made after Jeff's personal one...! I think some of you have's seen it on forum some years ago, so finally I'v get it! This one with Deadhead inlays, while Jeff's one with Star inlays as Hineken...! Also made in Tokio with T... serial - as all guitars which was made for Jeff..! This is amazing guitar - same top-feelings as Hineken...!!! )))













    • Erick ESP_KKV

      23. ESP Jeff's Black S&K inlays

      That is also Tokio made one, I think you know that this is just impossible now to find any Jeff's guitar with T serial and S&K inlays! ESP produced some with Floyd, but I think that is not "real" Jeff's guitars...! Real Jeff - with Kahler only!!! 
      I have idea to put stickers on it and made it like exact copy of his Metal Mulisha...maybe in future I will realized it... ha-ha))) 



















      24. ESP Jeff Hanneman "Raiders"

      This is personal Jeff's guitar which he used it studio during "Christ Illusion" recording...! ESP made totally two of "Raiders" and another one Jeff used on stage in 2008-2009! This one differ from other by other letters of "Raiders" discription, and main difference - it has Fernandes susteiner! Only one Jeff's guitar had Fernandes susteiner - and it's it! I added picture of Jeff's other "Raiders" also...!
      This guitar just amazing!!!





















      Here is Jeff's other one "Raiders" - it is without Susteiner and have other letters in description "Raiders"!






      Ok... I think fans of Slayer and Jeff's was very happy to see these..! I keep all guitars in memory of Jeff...!!! He was my main guitar and music Hero! 
      You always will be in our hearts, bro...!!! 

      Ok... next is my new Dime's guitars..! I'm BIG fan of Pantera, so I'v tryed to get all Dime's which was possible to get..!))))
      Of cause - all USA Dime3... and some is Custom shop..!

      25. Washburn Dime3 USA "Inferno"

      I'm sure that not many people have seen that guitar, that is extremely RARE Dime3 with Inferno grafik, about 10 pcs was made totally in USA Washburn factory!
      I dont know and never seen any other anywhere... so I think Dime's fans will be very wonder to see that this guitar excist!!!
      There is Dime's personal signature on the back plate, it is not stamp, it is made by marker !
      This is best sounding Dime's guitar, it has very deep and great tone.... one of my best sounding guitar!
      Dime had same grafik on his guitar and it was 2001-2002 era... but he didn't palyed much on it, so I even never seen it on live shows... only this 1-2 fotos...!




















      26. Washburn USA Custom shop Dime Stealth Black Rebel Flag

      That is One of a Kind Dime's Washburn Stealth Black Rebel! It was made for Dime's very good friend, and mine also friend...! this guitar is hardly valuable for me, as my friend who was own this guitar is passed away some years ago... so to me it's memory about my friend! Chewy paited it personaly to my friend...!
      Absolutly amazing Stealth with ebony fingerboard, it has special Washburn's Custom shop logo with nickname of my friend who own this guitar - BCIII, and also special discription on the back of the neck - "Deathrattle"...!!! I think no one never saw this guitar before...!!! 
      Even Dime didn't have same grafik on his personal guitars...)))

























      27. Washburn Dime3 "Purple" .... Deep Purple)))))

      That is really rare USA Dime3, about 5 psc was made totally..! It's look like a little wonder color - that "glamorous" color.. ha-ha))
      Dime didn't had same colour on his guitar... but ... but that one exist))))




      28. Washburn Dime3 Bolt

      That is one of USA production line of Washburn - amazing guitar with amazing grafik..! This one with natural finish...! Dime loved that color more than others... his famous old Dean had same colour..!) 















      29. Washburn Dime3 Slim

      That one is my one of the best sounding guitar - that is just amazing! it's serial Washburn Dime3 Slim..! Even that it is serial guitar there are not many was produced totally.. so these guitar also hard to find in our days...! Dime loved his Slim very much... and i'm too!!!))))

I get idea about this guitar when I have seen Mustaine's acoustik Sgnature guitar Dean Mako Glory... and I always loved old Mustaine's Y2KV with USA flag grafik... so I decided to connect all these ideas in this guitar...!!! I decide to put this grafik on his VNMT signature V... I'v send picture of guitar in Dean USA office... and they made this guitar according on my design...! Production get about 1 year...! Guitar was just amazing - really nice grafik on this V shape...!

      37. ESP MX "Man to Wolf" !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

      About 10 years here on forum and on other guitar's forums was too many disputes and talks about that guitar, but till this time no one was not absolutly sure and no one was not able to confirm that this guitar can be exist.........!!! This guitar is dream of all Metallica fans about 25 years already.......
      Yes guys - this is ESP MX "Man to Wolf" !!! I know many people dont believe that this guitar exist - but YES - its exist!!! I think all my guitars don't gave you chance to think that it can be any replica or something like this...! This is not replica - this is Genuine ESP MX "Man to Wolf" which was made in Tokio Custom shop in 1995...! You will say - how is possible...?!? I can tell you only one thing - one very "big" guy in ESP ordered it for himself, kept it in his office and no one ever seen it many years... but finally I got it...! So now you know truth... and you have seen EVERYTHING which is posiibe to see in ESP guitars...!!!!!!!)))

      Awesome pics and I'm very impressed to see so many extremely rare guitars especially the ESP MX 250 'Man To Wolf'. Seems James and you Erick are the ones who own one (If James hasn't sold his that is....)  

      I just started collecting guitars and would most certainly like the help you to sell some of these excellent gems!

      Thanx anyway for the pictures..Just incredible!!

    • Erick ESP_KKV

      Thank you man..!

    • boogie20

      Amazing collection!!!!! How long did it take for your eet fuk explorer to change color like that? I have a snow white ESP snakebyte, and after only a couple years old, it's starting to turn yellow.

    • Erick ESP_KKV

      All white ESP guitar is yelowing during years...! I bought my MX220 about 3 years ago and it already was yellowed... but its normal for guitar 25 years old..! And honestly I like that vintage colour... it's looks absolutly same as James's EET FAK...!  If you pay attention on my Ouija - it's also yellowed during years... and it's looks very cool.. I like it more than newer ones from 2009 with white colour..!

    • EZguitars

      Iron Cross??    the man has a Man-to-Wolf for goodness' sake.. they are not remotely in the same league 

      anyway nice pics Berik.. interesting to see.

      Yes... of cause!

    • mulysa

      i noticed that the Dimebag 'confederate waving flag" Washburn had Armand "Butts" Crump name painted at the back of the neck. Does that guitar used to be Armands guitar? Armand Crump was the late guitar tech for Kerry King. RIP Armand.

    • Erick ESP_KKV

      Hey man... you very watchful !

      Yes, it's Armand's guitar...! Armand was my very close and good friend... we make many guitars deals with him..!  Besides that he was Kerry's guitar tech - he also was crazy fan of guitars and BIG guitar collctor..! I also very miss him..!



    • GuitarsCollector

      I've bought an MX-250 from Armand just before he passed....was a very good guy... great collection man!!!

      I have one you miss....the ESP "relic" serial number 000...(kept from Esp headquarter...)

    • Erick ESP_KKV

      Yeah.. Armand was very good guy..!

      Honestly I never interested in Kirks's Relic series.. I just  dont very like this model...! Only Ouija and Mummy I like from Kirk's guitars..! I was very close to buy genuine Mummy on ebay 2 years ago... it was sold for 25000$... but I delayed...!!!
