ESP 400 Series

Post by hekdiesel » Fri Nov 07, 2014 3:15 pm

Hey guys,

So I just received this guy today. Haven't plugged it in yet, but unplugged it has a great vibe and sustain, it's super lively!

And for the age it's in mint condition, and the price was pretty good too!

Also, as a follow-up question: anyone have any experience or knowledge of these models? The tremolo arm was lost on this guy, and I wanted to know if anyone knows what bridge ESP used on these so I can try to get a replacement

Very nice :D

I have no idea about the arm, sorry. Have you tried contacting ESP?

Yeah probably. I dunno if it helps or not, but I normally hold off emailing companies over a weekend so it doesn't sort of get buried under all the other weekend emails sent by other people :lol: I might well be overthinking it, though, maybe it makes no difference.

Good point I'll re-iterate monday.

I'm going to see if I can borrow a fender trem arm from a friend to see if it fits well

"Unfortunately ESP did not start to keep detailed production records until the mid 2000's."

A Gotoh one should fit.
