Hi All,

After a long time searching i have found a music shop with an unsold ESP KH3, which i am due to purchase, i am in the UK and the guitar isnt.

What sort of questions should i ask to confirm its legitimateness

Thanks

ask for the serial number and then confirm it with ESP by emailing them.

Hi Loki,

I've asked for a photo of the back of the headstock, and found an interesting item on ESPs where i can detail the year made etc, but i will email the serial number to ESP also.

Thanks.

Yes, plus the nightmare i went trhough for permission off the wife Ive wanted one of these for about 10years, but money and discontinuing them stopped it.

just bear in mind that serial numbers can be faked

the basic problem is that you can do all the research in the world, but if someone is intent on scamming you (especially if they're good at it), that won't necessarily prevent you from being scammed.

Get as many pics etc. of known legit versions and go over them with a fine-toothed comb. Know the guitar inside out. And then get as good pics etc. as you can from the seller. Also search online to make sure they're not old pics from someone else's guitar. Etc.
I'm an idiot and I accidentally clicked the "Remove all subscriptions" button. If it seems like I'm ignoring you, I'm not, I'm just no longer subscribed to the thread. If you quote me or do the @user thing at me, hopefully it'll notify me through my notifications and I'll get back to you.

I'll have to put the Classic T models on my to-try list. Shame the finish options there are Anachronism Gold, Nuclear Waste and Aged Clown, because in principle the plaintop is right up my alley.

Presumably because the CCF (Combined Corksniffing Forces) of MLP and Gibson forums would rise up against them, plunging the land into war.
