Sup guys, selling off some gear I don't get the chance to take advantage of... plus I'm skint, so it's time to thin the herd.

Selling my ESP Ltd DV8-r Dave Mustaine signature in black. Tonepros bridge, neck-thru design, 24 frets. The pickups have been swapped from a JB and Jazz to a set of EMG Zakk Wylde's (85/81). Also, the stock tuners have been swapped for much better Schaller locking tuners, and the strap buttons have been changed with locking strap pins.

The guitar does have a few dings - it's been well loved and played, and was my main guitar for jamming and gigging for about a year - but it's still in fantastic condition. It's been in the case for a few months, so I took it out and got her all restrung and set up to standard with hybrid slinkys (9-46) and she's playin' like the beaut she is. The only dings I can see are very small, each roughly the size of a match head. There's one on the very tip of the headstock; you can't really see it unless you go looking, and one on each wing, and again they're rather hard to spot. If you wanted to hide them a daub of black paint or a black marker would most likely do the job, I'd just rather be honest about the condition.

Also, one of the locking tuners has developed a fault with the actual locking mechanism, the tuner itself works absolutely fine with no issues but the small winder to lock the string does not screw in properly. I dunno how much it'd cost to get a replacement, or even if you emailed Schaller they might repair/replace? I never got round to it, cause it never made any issue to me.

The guitar also comes with (what I've read is) a rare fitted ESP mould hardcase, apparently ESP stopped making the perfect fitting mould V cases and only make the large square ones with the foam inserts now. The case is solid, and it's an absolute perfect fit.

I'm looking for about £500 ono but I might be being overly-expecting price wise, so I'm open to offers. No rush to sell, but it'd be nice to let someone else love her rather than her sitting in the cupboard.

Photobucket won't upload my photos AGAIN so if you're interested, leave your Email and I'll get back to you (or just leave a message and i'll try photobucket again!)

Cheers!

Mike

PS - I'm selling my amp too, and that's open to offers also!
