I've never seen one like this before. Is it real?
Please view this ad:
ESP James Hetfield Iron Cross $1000 Reduced from $1500,
Never see a iron cross like that. Just plain, straight up like a normal EC? Don't sit right with me, but I'm no expert so don't take my word on it.
No, it's a fake. The ESP logo is a decal, not the plastic of a real one. The JH decal is the wrong color (and wrong signature). The truss rod cover is wrong. The pickups are wrong. The fret board wood is wrong. The body and head stock shape is wrong. No back binding....
I suspect you knew from the price it was wrong.
I did suspect but I'd thought I'd ask anyway. I'm really bad at picking out fakes from a picture. In person a different story. Thanks pushead for confirming my suspicion.
Its not even an ESP. Nothing about that guitar is good.
Ive actually been talking shit to that guy for months about his ad. He never responds to me.
I think his price was once $3500 when he first posted it.
