Over the past thirty years Kirk Hammett and Metallica have single-handedly changed the face of music, sold more albums than any metal band in history, and continue to inspire new generations of musicians. Kirk's solos are a crucial part of Metallica's dominating sound, and he has relied on ESP for more than two decades to make him guitars that meet his every need.
The ESP LTD Kirk Hammett KH-602 is loaded with an EMG 60 pickup in the neck position, an EMG-81 pickup in the bridge position and an original Floyd Rose locking tremolo. The neck-thru-body construction delivers maximum tone and resonance while the extra thin "U" shaped neck is fast playing. Of course, what would the master of horror biz's guitar be without wicked skull and cross bones inlays? Case not included.
"I'm glad I made the decision to go with ESP, because they do not let me down. And they make us the best guitars." - Kirk Hammett
