This is being sold in Sweden. The seller says it's an M-II Deluxe, but I've never seen one with pickguard.
It can of course have been added by somebody afterwards, but wouldn't that ruin the guitar value? He "only" wants $800 which is a fair price for ESPs in sweden in general...
Anyway, I'm not going to buy it, but it's an interesting guitar. I think it looks GREAT with a pickguard, so I'm really not turned off by it. I really wish ESP could make more pickguard Ms!
I like that. If it was an aftermarket pickguard, it was done very well. Any shots of the back of the body? That'd be the give-away, if it was also rear-routed.
