I'm eyeing what is purported to be a ESP Japan Custom Shop HSS on reverb and looking to confirm its authenticity. I've reached out to ESP customer service and the ESP forum but thought I'd throw it out for a look here. Any help is appreciated. From seller's description: The guitar does not include the original case or any COA. I reached out to ESP Customer Service when I acquired the guitar to see if they could provide any additional info. They said it was the genuine article, but admitted that their record keeping is somewhat lackluster and guessed it was built some time in the early 2000s and sold outside the US market.
