someone i know has one for sale, but does not know the year since they got it second hand for a kid that does not want to play guitar.

It is a standard strat shape with a reverse headstock. I has a locking tremelo, humbucker in the bridge, and slanted single coil in the neck. I cant find a made in logo anywhere on the guitar. The 12th fret just says ltd or something like that but no model name if you know what kind this is and what country they made it in i would really appreciate it.

also is you know what a fair price may be let me know.

sounds like an old m-1

EDIT:
wait, you said ltd.... the m-1 is esp....
if its an ltd, should be made in Korea

Just look at the model number inlayed at the 12th fret, if its 300, 400 or 1000 consider it, its probably an H.

it does not have a model at the 12th fret that is the probelm. I actually broke down and bought it. $100. $50 is mcdonalds gift cards. and i agreed to do his taxes for him ( $40) so it cost under $200 and comes with a case.

I actually have the guitar in my possesion. Here is more info. The tuners are gotah or something like that. The serial number is whithin the wood at the 24th fret. I was told by the guy who does my set up and repairs that the tremelo is a german made high quality one, but it does say esp on the tremelo. Any help on country and time of origin is appreciated. I do have the serieal number if anyone has an idea how to find out by that. All the guy at esp warranty department could tell me is that it is very old. It is also one of the lightest guitars i ever held.
