Sweet Guitar

Everything and more

By Geoff

from Appleton WI

This guitar is easily the best guitar I've owned and arguably that I've ever played on. I love everything about this guitar. Where to start. The guitar itself. Thick and solid construction, feels very sturdy. The neck is a thin u, which is good for playing fast. The JH EMG pickup set are some really amazing pickups, they are really versatile being able to play great blues, rock/metal, jazz. Every style, these pickups really tackle it because of the active passive combination. Really fat yet warm tone. Other features of note. The ESP locking tuners are fantastic in making restringing very easy. Lock the strings and wind em up. Done in no time. The extra 3 way switch, just for look as Hetfield wanted it to look like an original Gibson Les Paul. The one thing which upsets me is how the black Iron cross sits. One end is up (most likely they are pre bent and just screwed on), and because the plastic is very hard it cant be bent down. Overall this guitar is really a quality guitar. It's the best guitar I've ever owned, and I am very happy with my decision.

Amazing Tone

By Donald Whitt

from Buffalo, WV

This is my newest addition to my collection, and I must say that the tone this thing puts out is terrific! I wanted this because I had my eye on a similar guitar in the past, but was unwilling to shell out the money that was being asked to have it custom made. This guitar has all of the features I was looking for but for a fraction of the cost. The pickups in this guitar are quite different to the EMG 81/60 combo I'm used to, and the sound is a lot fuller, and warmer. The neck pickup has a lot more output than the EMG 60, and the bridge pickup gives a much warmer attack than the 81. The white finish with the black hardware and ebony fingerboard make for a beautiful instrument. The pic on here really doesn't do it justice. If you decide to purchase this, you will probably want to have it setup, as it comes completely factory sealed. All in all I would recommend this guitar to anyone who likes the looks of it, because no matter what type of music you're into playing, you wont be disappointed in the sound!

Amazing Guitar


from Boise, ID

This is an amazing guitar. It was perfectly set-up right out of the box. I swung by Guitar Center to make sure and there were no adjustments to be made. The neck is fast, smooth and plays really well. I truly noticed a difference in my playing almost immediately. It just oozes quality in construction and design. The colors are crisp and bright, I was blown away with how gorgeous it is in person, well-packaged for shipping and not a single blemish. I'm loving the JH signature EMG pickups, you can hear the difference in playing over "regular old" active pickups. The tone is more percussive but also rich sounding. The guitar is lighter than I thought it would be so it's very comfortable to stand and play for long periods. Locking turners are a breeze. This guitar has definitely exceeded my expectations. I'm in love.

By Chris Brooks

from Allen, Tx

I have been a huge fan of Metallica and ESP/LTD guitars for 25 years and this guitar certainly doesn't disappoint. I also have the Snakebyte and the Truckster (among other ESP's)and love 'em all. The build quality is outstanding, the Hetfield pickups sound great, it comes with an ESP case, and the guitar overall is just simply amazing and more beautiful in person. I did add strap locks but other than that I wouldn't change anything about the guitar.
