    I am thinking of buying this guitar a seven string ESP LTD MH417 with bareknuckle aftermath pickups. Its for 800euros but there is one little hiccup.
    The seller said that the binding came off where the neck meets the headstock and was reglued.
    Is it worth it?
    Ive never owned an ESP LTD, I usually play Ibanez and Schecter so any thoughts?

    Still quite a steep price for that guitar with those pickups, definitely with the faulty binding. Try to get a €100-200,- discount, because that price is too high.

    Quality-wise, LTD is pretty good. Never had a bad one, but I'm not sure about this specific model.

    Here is a pic of where the binding was reglued. Any thoughts?

    Binding doesn't look bad but that's still too much even without that issue.

    Binding doesn't look like a bad fix, definitely since it's on the bottom side of the fretboard. But as possumkiller said, even if it wouldn't have that issue, the price is still too high.
