1 [Neck Through Body] made for Kirk - 1993

Reverse islamic flag inlays. The first ever Ouija made is for Kirk and have 2 spelling errors on the body. The errors were in the line: "william fuld talkin board set", the kirk has reads "william fued talking baard set". The first have nothing on the back of the headstock (no serials or circle logo). The second Ouija made for kirk has "ESP Custom Guitars" circle logo on the back of the headstock. Both have on the front of the headstock a full "Kirk Hammett" signature in white, all the others have the KH signature.

[Neck Through Body] for Japan market - 1993-1994
Reverse islamic flag inlays., the body of the guitar is neck through, have 2 stars on the 24th fret  They had glow in the dark paint but the tritnite glow paint used had a 'glow life' of 7-10 yrs, so they would not glow anymore. The glow paint looks a little more yellow than the ones that dont glow. Ouija made in 1993 has no serial number and no ESP circle logo. Ouija made in 1994 has ESP black circle logo on the back of the headstock.


2 [Neck Through Body], 1 for Kirk Hammett and 1 for ESP "boss" - 1994
Correct islamic flag inlays. The moons face is in the direction of the body, as the islamic flag. It has a strange 6 digit serial number and ESP black circle logo on the back of the headstock. Kirk start to use this one live in 2004.


12 [Bolt On Neck] skull & crossbone - 1995 MSRP: $2495


63 [Bolt On Neck] moon & star - 1996/1998 MSRP: $2499

A custom order from ESP factory for an ESP Ouija in 1995 cost about $1900 in reality (thanks Brian D'Souza): "I did have an original black ouija back in the 90's it was a custom shop order i placed in 1995 and received in 1996. It was neck thru body. I do not know the serial #. However, it had custom inlays. It had a crescent, but not like a crescent moon, more like a cat's eye, with a dot instead of the star and then turning to dots at the 12th fret. It had the glow in the dark paint but it never really glowed. I sold the guitar in either late 1998 or early 1999 to a player in the Chicago area (where I was living) via Harmony central. I believe I paid $1,895 for the guitar brand new as a custom shop order. Things were more affordable back then."

Many of them have lost their C.O.A. (Certificate Of Authenticity) and / or OHSC (Original Hard Shell Case) during years.
