    Hey all, I'd appreciate if any of you ESP experts could give me some guidance on this particular guitar:

    I've looked at a few of the older 80s and 90s "Mirage" models with the lawsuit Jackson-style headstock, but haven't seen one with this M-III style headstock. Anyone know of anything I should look out for? Thanks in advance.

    All the answers you need are in the neck pocket. I'd say that it could be fully legit or legit neck and body put together, but if that's all legit (which it very likely is), that price is a goddamn steal.

    Thanks a ton @feraledge, I think the owner has some sort of connection to Todd Binder so this may be some sort of ESP Custom parts guitar. Gonna check it out and report back :agreed:

    Awesome. I literally just jumped back in here to see if you had made moves on this yet. I can't imagine it sitting.
