Actually It has not been a purchase but a trade for my ESP Ninja, I asked you if someone knows the price for a KH-1, but nobody knows, I think that the value of this guitar is major than Ninja.......................?

I try to post pics later.

it most likely is as the KH-1 was a limited run im pretty sure, and being personally signed by the Hammster would increase the value even more, so your looking at a bit of dough with that guitar

Only 2000 were made if my information is correct.

Serial numbers go from 1 to 2000, mine is K-1xxx.

I would think its more likely that 1000 were made. The old sigs usual had a K-X in the serial for the model. My KH-2 starts with K-2 and I've seen KH-3s always start with K-3. So, I'd guess yours is number 769 of a 1000 run. But ESP loves to trick people with the pre-current numbering system...

Is it just me or does the neck look really short on that guitar?

That is one sweet looking axe! Those devil inlays are crazy.

BTW, I noticed that the locking nut seems outta place? ie. there seems to be a small gap at the nut area on the low E side.
Is that normal?

I think that just has to do with the width of the neck at that point vs the width of the nut. They only make those locking nuts in certain sizes, so if the neck width is different from that width, there's going to be a gap.
