ESP

Description

The ESP James Hetfield LTD Signature Snakebyte electric guitar features set-neck construction at 24.75” scale, pairing a mahogany body with a thin “U”-shaped 3-piece mahogany neck, and a Macassar ebony fingerboard with 22 extra-jumbo frets. Its sound is driven by a set of James’ own EMG JH SET active pickups, along with a TonePros locking Tune-O-Matic bridge and tailpiece. The finish is based on a camouflage pattern created by high-performance hunting gear manufacturer KUIU, a design chosen by Hetfield. A portion of the proceeds from each LTD Signature Snakebyte goes to Metallica’s All Within My Hands Foundation, a non-profit, philanthropic organization dedicated to creating sustainable communities by supporting workforce education, the fight against hunger and other critical local services. Comes with a hardshell case.
