  • My new\used 1995 ESP US custom MIII

    It's a 1995 ESP MIII superstrat in see-thru green. Just got it today. Has a figured maple cap, one piece mahogany body, OFR, matching headstock, OHSC, EMG 81B, SAN, 89N with coil tap, ebony fretboard. A find for any lefty. She is amazing.

          I finally got a chance to play her and it's absolutely awesome. The OFR is awesome. looks great for a 14 yo guitar. The EMG's are a little more than what I am used to-I usually stick around seymour APH, burstbucker, PAF's but still sounds sweet. When I got this I was really looking for a LP studio but I couldn't find one.

                  I actually decided to keep it. The damn thing is absolutely beautiful and very comfortable. I am also not gonna pull the EMG's out of it. I found if I roll back volume and amp with the SA, and SA and 89, or just the 89 I can get some nice clean tones. This is my first ESP, and my first guitar other than Fender or Gibson. I decided to say to hell with Gibson. For their prices they can keep them. Besides, being a lefty there are many other manufacturer's for us. I still do love to hold a good Fender though. BTW, that is a real nice American Standard Southpawguy.

                          I have nearly the identical guitar, except its a right handed version and has a wilkenson vs100 instead of the OFR. Are you sure yours is a 1995 model? I bought mine in 1999, and it was the newly introduced ESP USA Custom M-III.

                          I was told by the dealer that the USA Custom shop only made 10 guitars a month. I've always hoped that mine is one of a kind, there were many color options on the M-III as well as Floyd/Wilkenson.
