The Fake ESP Thread
The Fake ESP Thread
Pushead and I are here to help verify ESP and LTD guitars. If you have, or are looking to buy a guitar that you're unsure of, post pictures and questions in this thread. Please post clear pictures of the front and back of the headstock, the fretboard, and the front and back of the body. Preferably before you buy anything.
Anyone else is free to offer suggestions on authenticity. If you answer a post, please tell us why you think it's real or fake.
I was told that it is probably not authentic because there is no certificate of authenticity or made in Japan marking. That was someone from guitar center so I’m not sure that they really knew for sure what they were talking about. Someone had it before me so I’m not sure if it’s history. Is there any sure signs that would authenticate it? Thanks
Hi, I recently bought an 2012 ESP Standard Series Eclipse-1. It came with its original hard shell case; the case has a barcode label on it. I attached a picture of the barcode label to this post, along with pictures of the guitar itself. Is this an actual 2012 ESP Standard Series Eclipse-1, or is it a fake? Thank you so much for your assistance.
Well hello ESP forums, i am looking too buy this ESP LTD Explorer which according too the seller [he atleast thinks so] is made in 1998. i have never had an guitar from ESP so i hope you guys can help me out a little.
i did my best too find info on seriel numbers ect but i am just not a 100% sure if it is real. the seriel nuumber [as shown in 1 of the pics] is written in the fretboard and is 45050, i could not find any info as too how that works.. the numbers just make no sense too me. i hope you guys could maybe help me a bit
Also the seller has replaced the tuners [one of the original ones is broken]. and he also still has the original trussrod cover.
Has anyone here worked with Ryu on Reverb before? Ryu is very helpful, and based on the pictures provided in the listing here, procures ESP custom shop MX-II's in Japan. Can anyone confirm the authenticity of this MX-II?
