I'm looking for a particular color oldschool Mirage. If someone has one, or sees one around, please let me know. :)

What's the name of the place? If the price is right I'll grab the purple one for myself. :lol: I've always loved these - I want this particular one for a wedding present for a buddy of mine who had one way back in the day. (His wedding is not until the spring, so I figure I have some time to hunt one down)

Ah. I was going to tell you to just buy a Soloist - you know, the guitar the Mirage is a clone of?

I have a black '80s The Mirage Custom that I would consider selling, but no seafoam green. I almost bought one of those a few years ago to go with the black one.

Does it have to be an ESP? A shop near me has one of the USA Charvel bolt-ons in that color. I've played it, and it is absolutely one of the best guitars I have played from that line.

EDIT: Action Music
I really want this exact guitar. I could get him a number of different things if I just wanted to buy him "a guitar", but the whole point of this gift is finding him the one that he had when we were young lads.

I'll keep my eye out for it, but like Darren said, that is gonna be tough. You might have to resort to buying the same model in a different color, and then painting it.

You still have time though, and I'll continue to check Denver CL and music go round.

Thats gonna be rough. The bolt ons were the Mirage deluxe and the neck throughs were mirage customs. The deluxe also had a different pickup config than the custom as well. My buddy had a rainbow crackle custom back in the mid 90's. We were to young to know how awesome it was then though, sigh.

I would trade my CS-Made Black Mirage Custom for a Holoflash, Rainbow Crackle or Purple Crackle Custom in a hot fucking second.

ESP "The Mirage" Custom

I was doing a google search on this guitar today and stumbled across your thread...I'm about 2 years late to the party but I own this guitar, Neck-Thru body, ebony fingerboard... I replaced the bridge pickup with a Seymour Duncan "George Lynch Screamin Demon" and it certainly is NOT mint. Minor dings and scratches throughout, missing tremelo and back plates... I have to say, I'm not 100% sure I want to sell it but was interested in what it would bring in this color..

Be that a Khaler?
It's a stock ESP Trem.. Pat No. 4171661 and 4497236

I know Khaler made OEM models for several manufactures... not sure if ESP was one.. anyway to tell?

Thank you Wikipedia.. it probably is a Kahler...

Neal Moser offers Kahler bridges on many models, and the Jackson and ESP Custom Shops currently offer Kahlers as a custom option. ESP and B.C. Rich also offer the Kahler X-TREM on their more affordable signature models for Jeff Hanneman and Kerry King respectively. ESP and B.C. Rich offer the Kahler Hybrid model on their mid-range guitars such as LTD JH-600 and B.C. Rich Wartribe, both with EMG pickups. Gibson has included the Kahler system on limited edition guitars such as the Gibson Shred-X Explorer and the Gibson Tribal Explorer. Peavey's PXD Void III and Twenty-Three III guitars also feature the Kahler system.
