    Trades? I can always have my arm twisted...

    All mahog, bolt-on, EMG 81 set, Schaller hardware, real carbon fibre nut. This thing sounds meaty as hell. Frets are excellent, not a lot of wear at all. No dings, ace body condition for a 23 year old guitar. Although there is a crack/ding on the ESP logo (pictured) and the tuners seem to have been installed on a Friday afternoon because the lacquer was still soft so there are slight ridges under the washers. Also a couple of hairlines in the lacquer on the body adjacent to the neck. The neck pocket has been inspected, the wood is fine. Comes with ESP soft case, though I will pack the bollox off it for shipping. Trying to slim down my collection to free up wall space for things I’m building. Even though I’ve said I’ll consider trades, I have terminal GAS, it’s a real medical problem.

    This is an old guitar, but a very good example I think. It’s the real 90’s metal McCoy. To be honest I’ve bought brand new guitars which I have been less happy with (in terms of aesthetics and finish, *cough* Strandberg *cough*). I have enjoyed it immensely, sad to see it go. I just want to be very transparent here, don’t want any dissatisfied customers. Should you buy her and are not happy, I will gladly take her back.

    I remeber running this past the guy at GuitarsCollector.com before I bought it and he said it was a good example.

    Just had another quick blast on this, she does stand out against my other slabs (Raptor, Gibson Explorer, ICT700, etc.) as very meaty and fun to play.

    That is the same model Devin Townsend played in his early years with SYL and his solo project. Killer guitar!
