The Guitarcollector site is usually pretty good. As I said, I don't have access to the photos of my old one, but looking at the guitars on the bottom of the page, he does show an appropriate serial number range. I guess the......MORE »

 Something about this seems off to me. The body shape is fine, but the head stock seems too big. The serial number also seems odd for this model (font and style.) I don't have access to the photos of my old EXP-200 at the......MORE »

An EC-1000, not a 256, but the information is all over the ESP website and asked dozens of times on the forum here. The 2018 models do not feature the model inlay at the 12th fret. This started around October last year.I......MORE »

Pushead replied to the forum post What is this EC-256?

It's legit, a 2016 model. It's not uncommon for LTD to do small runs of guitars in special colors for dealers. I know they've done it for Sam Ash over the years.......MORE »

Well, 2013 in the USA, we had LTD Elite and ESP Standard (with the transition logo). The catalog shows all the models as Eclipse II (which is USA Eclipse II from the above description.)There was never a lawsuit from Gibson.......MORE »

It's personal preference. I prefer the 4-knob layout, but I'm a traditionalist when it comes to layouts.I will say, the 4-knob versions don't seem to sell as quickly as the 3-knob versions. I'm not sure if it's because people......MORE »

If they are this type, they almost certainly aren't Gotoh. Or at least, they don't match the Magnum Lock available to the public. The finger lock screws are different. But the change between the ESP and the LTD stamp was just......MORE »

Yeah, it's a 7mm (or 5/16") nut. The good news is that if you can get the old one off, it can just be replaced with another. If you take the guitar to a competent tech, it should be a reasonably easy fix.......MORE »
