ESP Horizon 12th fret inlay

I've had this guitar for a few months now but I've just noticed that the "E" in the ESP inlay on the 12th fret is filled but the "S" and the "P" are not, they are just indented. Are they all supposed to be filled? Kinda upset cause I payed so much for this guitar and I've had so many problems with it.

if you've had a lot of problems with a high-end guitar like that it might be worth contacting the shop and esp just to see what they say.

I bought it from a popular, well reviewed ebay store. What's the easiest way to post a picture on here?

I feel like it's too late to return it for a new one or anything but I honestly didn't really notice this until now.

How could you not notice that?

upload your picture to a picture hosting site like Imgur, then copy the direct link and put it in between two img tags like so [img] *picture url here* [/img] without the spaces.

At a first glance in person it's hard to tell, that's why I haven't noticed. It's a minor problem I'll admit, but considering the price payed it's kind of frustrating seeing how I've had less problems with cheaper guitars.

To be fair, that is a pretty subtle thing.

It's the little things that matter, when it comes to higher-end guitars. This in inexcusable and a case of bad QC from ESP. I'm not saying ESP typically has bad QC, but something like this should have been caught, and I think he deserves a new guitar.

I know for given how much money he's paid, but nobody is ever going to see that.

My H-301 has that issue as well. The "0" isn't filled in. I tried filling it in with a pin point pen, but it didn't work very well.

That is disappointing though, and I feel for you. No company can have 100% perfect QC. Try emailing ESP, they may be able to help you. I don't know how, but you never know.

I would love to dissagree, but I have even seen $3000+ guitars with minor flaws (but it is very uncommon)
