Serial Number Check?

Fiutem F.


Hello all; would someone please let me know if this serial number is legitimate?

Do all signature series have the ESP logo on the back of the headstock?    This one does not, and I feel like I got the deal of a lifetime on it.

It feels great, has the certificate of authenticity, came in what appeared to be original packaging, has the logo on the case, and appears to have come from a legitimate dealer.  Am I just being paranoid, or am I in good shape?

Thanks to all; Happy Holidays


Post a few pictures and we'll be able to help.

I have an LTD M-50 with serial number IR0424623, is it original? And what year is it?

I may have made a boo-boo by taking off the "Made In Japan" sticker, but I did the same thing when FMIC had their sticker on the back of the two in the background there - I did it before I even thought about it.   :(

Matte finish is hard to see in the photos; daggers are reflecting light coming in from the window about bouncing off of me.

I can take and post any other photos.

Thank you for all your help; I hope that I am now a part of the ESP family.


It's legit.  Probably intended for the Japanese market, as those didn't always have the circle logo on the back of the headstock.  I have two different ESPs without circle logos (a JH-1 and an MX-II).  Nice guitar, I've always liked that finish, I love those Hanneman guitars.

Thank you for all of your help.

I come to find that my Hanneman is a Kiro build, and without the logo on the back of the headstock, and the serial number ending in '4', it appears that this may actually be one that was intended for Jeff for when he would have hopefully recovered in 2013, being the 4th in the order, based on the 'K' serial number system for the artists' instruments.

I am honored.

HEY guys! i recently traded my old schecter for this ESP LTD EC-1000. it was a steal of a trade and i thought it was too good to be true being the fact that this my dream guitar. is this an authentic ESP or did i get hustled? It also came with an ESP hardcase.

on facebook, someone selling his LTD bass guitar to me, and i just look out this LTD Bass guitar serial number H0409646 Made in Korea, i wanna know if this is legit or copy help me to verify, please help me find out about this.


Post photos.  I'm used to Korean made guitars starting with a W, but that doesn't mean much of anything without seeing the bass.

didn't know if this is legit and model is unidentified. i'm helping my friend decide whether to swap his Zoom B3 in exchange for this bass and a stompbox.. i bet somebody above this post is asking the same question. so here goes. pics are here. 


Who is this supposed to be a sig model for?  It doesn't look like any LTD I've ever seen, but that doesn't mean much.
