Product description

  • A brand new, distinctive James Hetfield signature model from ESP, with absolutely professional features. But - as typical for Ltd production - to be had for a very nice price and featuring an unbelievably good price-quality relation.
  • Finish: Snow White, 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 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 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.
  • 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.
  • Outstanding quality of selected woods, craftsmanship, playability and sound, to be really rarely seen especially in this price range!
  • ESP Ltd guitars come from factory without a case or a gigbag. However, we offer the optional, hard to find, original (!) ESP Snakebyte Series formfit hardcase for a very special price of only 109.- EUR (instead of 169.- EUR when sold separately). This special offer is only valid in connection with the purchase of the above guitar, and is subject to stock availability, please inquire.
