Product description

  • A distinctive ESP James Hetfield signature model, from the ESP Signature Series. Handcrafted in Japan by ESP's highly skilled craftsmen at the famous ESP Custom Shop, of highest grade woods and parts available, in a precise manufacturing quality and with an outstanding tone and playability ESP Custom Shop instruments are famous for.
  • 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.
  • Bridge: TonePros Tune-o-Matic fixed bridge, with stoptail piece.
  • Pickups: EMG JH active humbucker-set - this new James Hetfield combination is very versatile, provides lots of gain for aggressive sounds, fits well for downtuning and is absolutely quiet, due to its active design.
  • 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.
