Ferocious Rock Tone -- James Hetfield Style

You know the sound, you know the name -- and your ESP LTD James Hetfield Iron Cross electric guitar produces the powerful wall of sonic fuel associated with the Metallica frontman's image and tonal style. This eye-catching axe features a set of EMG JH signature active pickups housed within a resonant maple-topped mahogany body, a robust mahogany neck, a slick and addicting ebony fingerboard, a sturdy TonePros locking Tune-O-Matic-style bridge and tailpiece, and secure LTD locking tuners. A stark cross at this baby's base gives off a sinister yet intriguing visual flair.

Check out our exclusive run-down of the ESP LTD James Hetfield Iron Cross electric guitar:


Mahogany and Maple Body

If you like a dark sound full of depth and sustain, then this axe is right up your alley. Mahogany is a very popular tonewood choice for electric guitars because it tends to highlight the middle and lower frequencies well -- giving you plenty of body. Maple brings a slightly rounded brightness to the table, as well as a hint of snappiness which can help your signal cut through the mix for those wailing leads and heart-stopping licks. Shoulder this ESP LTD, and you'll hear the time-tested combo of mahogany and maple bringing the rock.

Lightning-Fast Set-in Mahogany Neck

The mahogany neck on your James Hetfield Iron Cross is absolutely addicting. This speedy appendage harnesses 22 XJ frets over a slick and buttery ebony fingerboard. Incredibly tight action allows for some ferocious and speedy runs. Mahogany necks with set-in construction can bring a nice heap of sustain, so if you like to flood your signal with gain, you can hold your notes for a while to get some ear-piercing sustained feedback.

EMG JH Signature Humbuckers for Sonic Destruction

That unmistakable James Hetfield wall of tone is harnessed in this guitar's complement of EMG JH signature humbuckers. These babies utilize ceramic pole pieces to give your output an aggressive attack, as well as a solid dose of low end. The overall sound of this axe is pretty dark, so take advantage of your tone control when you want to brighten things up for the right occasions.

Features:

- Maple-topped mahogany body with Iron Cross graphics
- Mahogany set-neck in thin U shape
- 22 XJ frets over a smooth ebony fingerboard
- Scale length of 24.75"

Customer Reviews
5 out of 5 (5 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "LORD OF THUNDER!!!"
Overall: Purchased this guitar less than a month ago and so far...NO REGRETS!! Arrived on time and perfectly set-up ( I was concerned being around the holidays and the cold climate of the midwest I would have to perform a new set-up due to it sitting in the truck) however action is flawless; Little buzz on the low E if you really dig into it. Overall this guitar is a sonic POWERHOUSE. Palm-Mute some low Es on distortion and it sounds like an hosest to god FREIGHT TRAIN is coming out of your amp. Kudos to the inclusion of JH pickups (which I was leary of at first) but these things kick!!! Sustain? I could leave my finger waving and this thing thing will go on for days...Blues your thing? Kick on the bridge and a warm tone and you can groove like none-other. But let's not be mistaken...this guitar is meant to bring the thunder and lighting...Ima go jam now...
