Any 1 knows about ESP Mirage Custom??

Hi, I'm very interested in this ESP Mirage Custom Shop. But the information about this guitar is so limited, can any 1 tell me more about this guitar?

I notice the single coils are Schecter pickup with xtra large pole pieces, is this pickup good?

Thank you very very much~~

Spec of the guitar:
-Ash body, maple neck, and rosewood fretboard.
-Matching reverse headstock.
-Sperzel locking tuners.
-Wilkinson bridge.
-22 frets.
-H-S-S config.
-Bridge is LH-200, Single coils is Schecter USA pickups.

I've heard that Schecter pickups tend to be of a fairly high standard. The design was carried over to Tom Anderson's guitars' pickups when he left Schecter to set up his own company.

I've really liked the older ESPs I've tried so I'd have no hesitation in getting a hold of this beauty

I updated the spec of the esp mirage in the first post.

I'm going to swap my Gibson SG Special Ferrari Red (Dimarzio 36th anniversary PAF + Tone Pros Bridge) with this guitar, i guess it's a fair deal?

Anything from the ESP custom shop will be top class in components and construction. As a bonus, it looks amazing too.

If it were me, i'd swap that SG for the ESP in a heartbeat, but then again, I have no idea of either guitars relative value.

Rock on!

SWAP NOW.

That's all I can say on that matter. You might want to swap out the bridge pickup but other than that, the guitar looks sensational.

It looks ok but I prefer the look of the pre-Jackson lawsuit era Mirage custom. It looks like a bolt on neck. All the pre-Jackson lawsuit Mirage customs were neck-thru. The Mirage deluxes were bolt on.
