Hi! Here to sell or trade my battle worn ESP M2.
This guitar has been my main axe for over a decade, and it shows.
It’s a rare Custom Standard model from 2011, which basically means it’s part of the standard series, but the specifications on it are exactly the same from M2 models made by the custom shop during its era of production (2010-2012).
Bought it for $2499 new, and has been with me ever since.
It comes with an original ESP hard shell case, and tremolo arm.
Everything is fully stock, and has been kept in a smoke-free home.
There are no dings, or any noticeable damage to the outer gloss paint.
However, there’s a bit of discoloration on the chrome knobs, wear on the bridge, lots of slight picking lines and fine scratches (tried my best to capture all of those underneath a bright light), and a small part of the white binding on the headstock has turned into a mild beige color.
Overall, it’s in excellent condition, and has been well maintained over the years.
The ebony fretboard has no cracks, and has been treated with lemon oil twice a year.
All electronics have no technical issues whatsoever, and will ship with a brand new 9v battery.
Here are some extra information and specification charts I pulled up from Axebition.com:
