    I understand Kerry King use to play ESP guitars in the 90s and had some sick V's made for him. I have seen the red and black crackle one on the internet and i understand they are rare and worth quite a bit. However i recently bought a black bolt on one from a pawn shop for pretty cheap in perfect condtion for 250$. i cant find the specs for this guitar to tell if everything is original on it. So here are my questions where can i find the specs for them and how much are they worth?

    Thanks

    It's pretty wild thing to just throw out there dude.

    Post up a picture and the SS.org community will sort you out with the info you need.

    Those guitar are fairly rare, and hey were only made for a year or two I believe.

    Definitely get some pics up.

    Wow. That wasn't a steal, it was a rape/murder. If only I could walk into a pawn shop and find one of those.

    Would probably go for around $1000 on ebay I'd imagine, I haven't seen one on there in a while but I haven't been looking either.

    I've seen one of those black/red crackled ones on ebay 5-6 months ago. I costed 900$, but it wasn't original I think.

    Great score, man. I love KKVs, in fact my #1 is the high-end MIK one. Changed a few parts including the EMGs but it sure is a workhorse. Plus the Speed V shape is pretty hard to beat!
