So the other day I happened across a craigslist ad from back home that piqued my interest. I followed it up and last weekend I went to go pick it up.

I wonder what could be in this...


An ESP of some sort I suppose


Oh yeah, it is a 1992 ESP M2 Deluxe!













Now for the short review. The guitar is in pretty damn good condition with only maybe 3 dings on the whole guitar. Only one of them goes through the paint to the wood. It was modified by the original owner to have a tone knob, though at the moment it is not connected. The original pickups were also replaced with an EMG 85 in the bridge and an EMG SA in the neck. They seem to work well with this guitar as the 85 cleans up pretty nicely with a volume roll down to achieve an almost acoustic guitar sound while the SA in the bridge shines of clean. It is great for funk and it does jazz stuff pretty nicely too. Very articulate while staying fat and warm. The guitar also has an OFR and as far as trems go, I definitely can't complain. It stays perfectly in tune, resonates quite well, and flutters like the Edge on my Ibanez RG550. The neck closer to a thinner Fender C shape than a fatter Ibanez Super Wizard so it is almost like the best of both worlds. Overall it is a fantastic guitar, and I can safely say I would recommend it to anyone interested in one of these bad boys.

PS. Are you in a minimum security prison? Those brick walls look sketchy.

Sweet guitar.

Saw esp box and was like 'aw **** not another ****ing ec-1000!'
Thanks for not disappointing.

Thanks for the HNGD wishes guys! To answer some questions, the price for this monster was a cool $550 with case and Dimarzio Clip Lock system included on the guitar. Not too shabby a deal I think. As far as the room debate goes, Metalfan41 nailed it with the dorm room guess. Nothing says learning like cold hard prison style cinderblock. DimebagZappa I'm glad that I didn't disappoint lol.

The only real answer to the SG vs Les Paul debate is to get a Flying V and laugh at all the suckers who don't have one.

I knew it was going to be something interesting once I saw the old school ESP logo.

Very nice find. I'm glad it isn't a Horizon. 90's bolt on Horizons =

HNGD dude. Enjoy!
