Thanks for your help!
Looks good to me. If you can inspect, check out the pickups.
Looks like someone priced it up using the LTD models as a guideline!
Does the inlay on the fret board look correct?
Flag inlays, yes, with ESP at 12th fret. It seems like it. Do you have a way of checking the serial number?
I just googled the ESP standard series serial numbers and it seems to all check out. Seems legit. Score!
Theres a white Eclipse Standard on Craigslist in my area for $1,800!
Serial looks legit.standard series.damn scoop it up!
What SHOULD the back look like???
I'd ask less questions and start driving.
Knowledgeable members on other forums or saying that it's fake
disregard my previous comment then!
It was a 1.5hr drive...I was in the parking lot to meet when I saw that it wasn't real...1.5hrs home.
What did other forums say, what tipped them off? Seller has deleted it already from CL.
Logo, headstock shape, truss rod cover, pickups...etc.
Which is EXACTLY the reason I was asking. I'm pretty good with recognizing Chibsons...but I'm NOT good with ESPs. I've never owned one. I was hoping to change that today, but sadly, it wasn't to be.
Just outta curiousity, what did you say to him when you were face to face with a fake?
We've all been there. I've driven further only to find it was a fake, not as promised, etc. Also had a guy call me an hour into a drive and tell me he "just sold it" even though we made arrangements and settled on a price. Unfortunately with Craigslist, that's how it goes. You in some, you lose some!
