Is there any way of checking ESP guitars to make sure they are not fake! Is there anywhere where i can check the serial number against a database? Like you can with Gibson guitars.

Email them with the serial number asking for information?
And why do you think the guitar is fake?

Thanks for the replies I'm thinking of getting a "ESP Truckster" which is advertised in a local paper near me for £600, but I heard that they are fakes about, I don't know if that is true or not but obviously I don't want to buy a fake. I have tried joining ESPs forums but that is still waiting for the moderator activate my account.

Too good to be true. 95% probability its a fake Chinese copy. I'd wager $10 that it's even more fake than Pamela Lee Anderson's tits.

it's so cool to hate Gibson, even the federal Department of Justice hates them.

Okay guys, I have a confession to make. Not really a confession since it's something that's been bugging me for awhile but I've always been in denial about it.

**** you gilly, it's not what you think

It's definitely ESP it's got it on the head stock, I have also got the serial number that is why I'm a bit suspicious because of the low price!

For a start it has made in Japan on the back! So I Know its ESP, I've e-mailed the serial number to ESP to see what they've got to say about it
