Just got an esp ltd cobweb guitar and I can not find much about it except that guitar centers website they made a limited run of only 100. The guitar is in great shape and everything works fine. almost looks brand new with no buckle rash or wear on the finish anywhere.

Basically this guitar is a 500 series LTD with a graphic on it.

Do some research yourself before making a thread is always advisable.

I did some research I realize that but there is not much out there I was looking for used values pricing of what they cost. I only paid 100 dollars for it. You do not have to get an attitude. I always research before I post. Anyway to those who know a value of this guitar would be cool. not sure If I am going to keep it or sell it.

I don't mean to come off that way, but it took me literally 30 seconds on Google to discover what exactly this guitar is. It suggested that you didn't look terribly hard for your answer before making this thread.

If you want to know how much you might expect to get if you sell it, I'd look at how much an equivalent 400-500 series LTD sells for on ebay. But given the guitar in question has gothic-style graphics, such a guitar is going to be a hard sell. So I'd expect to get the guitar for somewhat less because demand for this kind of guitar is generally going to come from the sort of buyer that isn't going to have a lot of money to spend.

Keep it if you like it. Sell it if you don't.

I wouldn't think so. If this particular model had a lot of demand, then they would've made more of them. If this guitar is rare and supposedly more valuable because of it, then why did you get it for only $100?

after playing it for awhile I think I will keep it. It sounds and feels good. not like the ec 500 I have picked up before. (yes my gibson les paul is going to hate me lol)

rare doesn't always equal money. uncommon can equal less money or maybe a little more.

desirability plus rarity will get you farther.

this guitar is the former.

HNGD! enjoy it, THAT is what matters. it looks like you have a nice guitar on your hands.

I have to agree that special editions, limited runs, signature series etc won't guarantee a high resale value, often these guitars will appeal to a small group of buyers which really kills the demand thus the value.

That said for $100 it is a good deal especially if it is in as good of shape at it looks from the picture and plays good, you could recover most of that cost selling the EMGs

Glad to see you decided to keep it and if you change your mind you should at least get your money back maybe even double if you are patient Reverb does have a used mint condtion one listed for $500, but that doesn't mean it will sell for that.

I played it even more, and it reminds me of an esp Eclipse I used to have (not and ltd) but 24 fret version. I definitely going to keep it for heavier drop tunings and keep my Gibson les paul for standard or half step down. I put Earnie Ball heavey bottoms on it and through my 6505 plus it sounds awesome. Intonation on the bridge needed a bit of adjustment but now its dialed in perfect down the entire fret board.

Forgot one last question does anyone know what year it was in production?

Type the guitar's serial number into a guitar dater and see what comes out.

Looks like ESP launched this guitar in 2008. Link below:

http://www.electric-guitar-review.com/2008/03/12/esp-adds-seven-more-models-to-their-08-lineup/

Don't know if they carried the production run into following years, but the guitar on Reverb, link below is also a 2008 model:

https://reverb.com/item/1504675-esp-ltd-cobweb

Therefore, if you aren't able to look up the serial number, seems like a strong likelihood it was made in 2008.

Hope this helps.

Serial numbers are perfectly safe to post online btw. People who counterfeit guitars most likely already know how to make fake serial numbers which seem real, so there's no secret to be kept.

Doesn't matter. Sometimes making only 100 of something simply means that nobody wanted it. Carvin makes one-offs all day long. That's *all* they do. Gibson ran a year's worth of "Guitar of the Week" with something like 400 units each time. I think there are probably STILL a few sitting in dealers' back rooms that missed being returned to Gibson as inventory rejects because they got buried under something else.

Kinda makes you wonder if they made more than 100.

I was told by a rep at guitar center that the first number was a batch number
