    That did NOT turn out like Steve DiGiorgio's double-neck Forest.

    I smell something funny.
    -No CS logo, no auth papers, rosewood looks cheap, as does the hardware. And it's bolt on. And etc etc. Not convinced this is not a scam.

    also the binding looks like shit.

    I'm sure that if ESP's custom shop were to do a vyper, or any double neck they'd make the whole guitar awesome.Ebony, quilted maple, neck thru, awesome inlays. also the horns don't look as sharp as they would on a real ESP. It looks sloppy.

    Looks fishy to me...

    Eh, I believe it and I'm sure an email to ESP USA could verify it since he states he picked it up from the warehouse a month ago. You dont forget something that......uh..... unique?

    No I would say definitely fake, a guitarist I know has a fake esp custom shop and it too has the same tuners, same bolt on cover thing, same poor quality rosewood.

    I don't normally comment on such train wrecks, but that is fucking hideous.

    Sent the seller a PM just for giggles. Asked him serial number and certificate. Although some special shop runs do not have a serial on the headstock, they come with an auth card, and are ot made by the custom shop but as a run in the team that issues the standard models. Nothing warranting prices upward of 1K5 used anyway.

    I must now proceed to swap one of each for a passive humbucker, one shall be a Seymour Duncan and the other? A DIMARZIO.

    Only then will it truly be for the pick-up enthusiast who can't make up his mind
