Hi!
I bought a guitar yesterday that the seller said is an old ESP explorer?
Did they they make anyone with this pot configuration and this tremolo bridge?

you fool why didnt you ask first!
that is totally a fake man look at the esp logo... its most likely a third-party explorer copy and he's applied an esp decal, you havent paid for it yet right ?
ask for a serial number ? better photos ?

Getting an actual ESP for that cheap seems unlikely...
Not saying you can't get a good deal sometimes, but I'd be cautious.

This thread proves Gigatiran is awesome, and a lot more awesome than your average awesome. I bet he even owns a duster like Dennis Reynolds.

No, I have not yet paid. Are there serialnumbers on all ESP:S? To me it look as a Hamer after I googled around.
I better ask for better pictures and post them here for help!
Thanks

do not pay, just get 1 bad mark against your ebay account, cause its def a fake

but i guess if it plays sexually thats all that matters...

and yes esp's have serial numbers

like 0734224

made in 2007, 34th week 2nd day, 24th guitar made (thats from my esp edwards flying v)

oh dude I spotted this a few days ago and thought it looked a bit fake. Yeah I'd defo not pay, much better getting one bad mark then shelling out for a fake.

I doubt you'd even get a bad mark, report his listing and have eBay remove it for selling a counterfeit or false advertising.

"PLEASE ONLY BID IF YOU INTEND TO BUY IT. THIS HAS BEEN RELISTED DUE TO THE WINNER NOT ACTUALLY HAVING THE FUNDS TO PAY FOT IT!!"

Quite interesting line... Or maybe the last winning bidder found out something... I dunno..

That guitar has a weird tremolo. And I did some research, turns out there are a few of these copies floating around. So, fake, for shore.
