Get Metal with Metallica's Kirk Hammett Signature ESP!

ESP has an awesome line of signature axes, and now it's the Kirk Hammett ESP LTD KH-602 electric guitar's turn to show you just how shred-worthy your game can get. The Metallica axeman's signature ESP is stocked with a pair of EMG humbuckers -- an EMG KH Bone Breakers -- for a full metal-synthesis of distortion to flood your ears. A comfortable countered alder body and extra-thin U-shaped maple neck with a bound rosewood fingerboard of 24 XJ frets offer biting resonance and easy playability. One master tone and two volume control knobs allow you to shape your EMG pickups the way you want, and a three-way pickup selector switch gives you three pickup settings to choose from. This neck-through-body ESP is a powerful, versatile instrument with a brilliant tone for solos!

Locking Nut and Floyd Rose 1000 Vibrato Bridge

What good is tone if your axe lacks secure intonation? The combination of a locking nut and the ESP KH-602's secure and immensely flexible Floyd Rose 1000 vibrato bridge will keep your tuning in check, leaving you focused on your playing and not on unwanted out-of-tune distractions. Dive your strings low or bend them high -- your sustain will last, and your notes will continuously remain in tune.

Countered Alder Body and Maple Neck

Alder gives your axe a nice, full-bodied sound that keeps your highs from being too bright while boosting your mids and lows effectively. The ESP LTD KH-602's maple neck provides a tight sound that also keeps your highs in check -- no overbearing brightness here. This neck, with its bound rosewood fingerboard of 24 XJ frets, plays like butter with an incredibly close action and thin U-shaped neck. And as you'd expect from a Kirk Hammett signature guitar, this one has black hardware and skull-and-crossbones inlays.

Features:

- Alder body in Mirage shape
- Maple neck of 24 XJ frets
- Neck-through-body construction in extra thin U Neck shape
- Bound rosewood fingerboard
- Kirk Hammett signature on headstock
- EMG Bone Breaker pickups
- Floyd Rose 1000 vibrato bridge
- One master tone and two tone knobs
- Three-setting pickup selector switch
- Skull and bones inlay and model at 24th fret

ESP LTD KH-602 Kirk Hammett Signature

Kirk Hammett has been an "ESP guy" for as long as anyone can remember, and there's a wide range of Signature models to prove it. The KH-602 features EMG KH Bone Breaker pickups and an original Floyd Rose locking bridge, so you can wail with the same style and tone as Kirk himself.

Like all of Kirk's guitars, this one has black hardware and skull-and-crossbones inlays. Neck-thru-body construction enhances the KH-602's brilliant tone for solos.

"Exceptional"
Overall: I was reluctant to buy a guitar without actually playing it first, but after reading all the reviews here and other sites, it seemed like a reasonable risk to take, so I moved forward with purchase. I've been playing for about 8 months, and practice at least an hour a day. My other guitars have been non-tremelo, so this was a whole new experience for me. It came with the top locks loose, and I actually started to tune it via the top tuning pegs, oblivious to how a Floyd Rose system worked. After I could not keep it in tune, I did a great deal of research on YouTube and various guitar sites, and learned the ways of the Floyd Rose system. I replaced the strings (DR 9-42's), got everything set up, and after a couple of hours, was amazed at how well this guitar played and sounded. This guitar looks bad ass, sounds bad ass, and is fun to play. I'm no expert, but I'm very happy with this guitar.

"My husband loves this Guitar!"
Overall: I bought this for my husband for an early Father's Day present and he absolutely loves it, He is a huge Metallica fan so it goes without saying he thinks it's perfect. It literally sounds like Metallica is playing in our house when he plays it. Here is his actual review: It is incredibly light yet I do not feel like I am going to break it. The Floyd Rose performs flawlessly. This is a 5 star guitar for sure. This guitar is ablsolutely amazing. It does well more than just Metallica type music. Buy this and you will be pleased for ever.
