Overview

Kirk Hammett has been ripping up solos for Metallica for over 30 years. Riffs on Ride the Lighting, Master of Puppets, and the Black Album are a must learn for all rock guitarists. For Kirk, his tone starts with EMG pickups. “Metallica’s crunch sound is often cleaner than people expect”, says Kirk. “My taste in tone has definitely changed over the years. I don’t like to use as much distortion these days—I prefer my tone to be nice and crisp”.

The new Kirk Hammett Bone Breaker set is the result of taking the success of Metallica tone and adding some new elements without sacrificing gain for clean or vice-versa. By making slight pre-amp adjustments and combining Alnico 5 and Ceramic magnets the perfect tone beast was created.

The Bone Breaker Limited set consist of the BB-B Ceramic bridge and the BB-N Alnico 5 neck pickups both in Brushed Black Chrome caps with Kirks initials laser etched on the caps. Limited number of sets have been produced, each set is numbered and comes with an official Bone Breaker signed poster card. No matter if you are looking for rhythm or lead tone, the Kirk Hammett Bone Breaker set offers crisp crushing leads or smooth rounded rhythm tone at the flip of the selector switch.

      Comments about EMG Kirk Hammett Bone Breaker Limited Pickup Set:

      Picked up the new LTD KH-602 Purple Sparkle today. Wanted it to look and sound a little more similar to the ESP version. Picked these bad boys up, and swapped them out in that and my KH Ouija. Best decision ever! Not to mention a must for any Metallica fan.
