- A distinctive ESP James Hetfield signature model, with absolutely professional features and an outstanding price-quality relation.
- Finish: Black, with black hardware.
- Body: Mahogany.
- Neck: Mahogany. "Thin U" neck contour. Set neck construction - this enables a very good sustain, an easy access to the upper frets, and of course a full, "fat" tone.
- Scale: 24.75" - like Gibson Les Paul, SG, Explorer etc., i.e. a 2 cm shorter scale than for instance a Stratocaster, resulting in better playability even with thicker string gauges.
- Fretboard: Ebony, with dot inlays and the ESP James Hetfield "snake" inlay at the 12th fret.
- Nut: 42 mm - Standard.
- Headstock: ESP Snakebyte style - matching the body finish.
- Tuners: Sperzel USA Trim-Lock locking tuners - often requested by professional artists, these tuners are a must-have for the demanding musician. The key to their design is eliminating wraps around the string post, which can cause string slippage and tuning problems. Simply loosen the thumbwheel located on the back, feed the string through the post, lock the thumbwheel tight, cut off the remaining string, tune up and you’re finished – better tuning stability and no more restringing nightmares.
- Bridge: TonePros Tune-o-Matic fixed bridge, with stoptail piece.
- Pickups: EMG 81 / 60 active humbucker-set - this classic combination is very versatile, provides lots of gain for aggressive sounds, fits well for downtuning and is absolutely quiet, due to its active design.
- Alternatively, upon request of the purchaser, we can also perform a professional installation of a different pickup combination, e.g. any DiMarzio, EMG or Seymour Duncan etc. (Very fair prices per pickup swap). Furthermore, we offer installation of active boost and EQ circuits like EMG Afterburner, PA-2, SPC, RPC, VMC, EXG etc. Please ask for details if interested.
- Electronics: 2x volume, 3 way toggle switch.
- Absolutely outstanding quality of selected woods, craftsmanship, handling and sound!
- The guitar comes in a high-quality original ESP hardcase with ESP logo.
