i know nothing about ESP's other than the ones i have played here or there. i don't know if they are a common thing to fake, but i would like to know if you could help.

I have no idea, but I'll give it a bump because it's a sick looking guitar, sorry I'm no help I've never owned an esp

Looks pretty legit to me. This is an older generation of the Horizon which still had the bolt on neck. Newer ones had switched to being neck-thru. Although I'm not sure about the location of the pickup switch. Maybe somebody knows about this.

If you needs a reinsurance then look at the case. It's an original ESP case that comes fitted to the guitar. If its a counterfeit then it usually without the case as it costs quite a bit to get one.

Looks legit mate.

Though thats quite pricy, I have seen the neck through Horizon NTs going for around $800ish

Looks pretty on the level to me, nothing really popping out to me that screams fake, imho. Seen a couple for sale in my area that are fakes and there are a few glaring discrepancies between them and the actual ESP's I've come across, this doesn't seem to have any.

The only thing that gives me pause is the lack of a serial number, but the back headstock logo says its Custom so that could be why, as all the ones I've seen, played and owned have been Standard Series.

Contact ESP support with those pictures and the serial number on the neck plate and they should be able to identify and verify it for you. Awesome axe, by the way.

It looks legit, but watch out - the scale length might be 24.75". Not very likely, but some of the older models were, and it can be surprising on a guitar that looks like that.

@Tom - that's a good/average price in the US. Don't think I've ever seen one lower than $650. Usually people ask a lot more for them because of the ESP name.
