Overview

Kirk Hammett is the lead guitarist for Metallica and the first inductee into Guitar World's Hall of Fame. His ESP guitar designs are immensely popular, and now ESP extends those awesome features to a junior electric guitar that is perfect for travel or for a young metal head just starting out. With a light basswood body, 3/4 scale, extra thin flat maple neck and rosewood fretboard with 22 extra jumbo frets, you can keep on shredding on the tour bus or in your room for a long time. The EMG-ESP LH-301 humbuckers make it all come through loud and clear. Black nickel hardware and skull & bones inlays reveal Kirk Hammett's sense of style, too.

Comments about ESP LTD Kirk Hammett Junior Electric Guitar:

I just opened it and i'm scared to touch it. I payed and if any of the metallica fans love kirk hammet, Here it is. This is as close to metallica's kirk hammet as you can get.

Worst purchase of my carrer

By Nicholas Avery

from Creston, IA

Comments about ESP LTD Kirk Hammett Junior Electric Guitar:

The title says it. Besides its limitations in size, this guitar is really a horrible disater on your musical abilities. It never stays in tune when you apply vibrato, the pick ups are incredibly weak and pick up quite a bit of fuzz. assentially no versatality what so ever espeacially for someone who plays metal at all or anything else. Dont buy this, save you moola.

Wont stay in tune.. bad intonation

By Jeff

from Jonesborough, TN.

Comments about ESP LTD Kirk Hammett Junior Electric Guitar:

I've been playin right at 30 years (modern rock)nickelback ect. type stuff. I bought it with the intention of teaching my son. The guitars intonation can't be set right on the d string I took it to a pro shop locally and they got it as close as possible...also as another review stated if you use much finger vibrato it goes out of tune quickly..wish I would have got the fender for my son now. If ESP could fix those two issues it would be an awsome guitar.

    Comments about ESP LTD Kirk Hammett Junior Electric Guitar:

    Once you get this guitar, you must get a full setup and have the tech put 12's on it. From there on out it will stay in tune and is total blast to play. The shorter neck requires the heavier strings. We tried the stock strings, EB 10's, EB 11's, and finally EB 12's did the trick.. My 9 year old son loves Metallica and wouldnt have any other guitar than a Kirk Hammett.. I also strongly encourage strap locks. The pickups that come in it weren't horrible.. (Its a $250 guitar for pete's sake!!) Ours came more to life once we put the extra set of EMG 81 & 60 i had in it. The feel of the neck is awesome and the inlays look pretty darn cool.
