As the lead guitarist for Metallica, Kirk Hammett has inspired generations of musicians over the past 40+ years, and the ESP LTD Kirk Hammett Signature KH-V electric guitar continues his legacy as the latest addition to the Kirk Hammett Signature Series. The KH-V offers neck-thru-body construction, with an extra-thin U-shaped three-piece maple neck and korina body at 25.5” scale. Its Macassar ebony fingerboard features pearloid wave inlays and 24 extra-jumbo frets. The sound of the KH-V is powered by a set of Kirk’s signature EMG Bone Breaker pickups, with the BB-B ceramic bridge and the BB-N Alnico 5 neck pickups for crisp, crushing leads or smooth, rounded rhythm tones at the flip of a switch. Controls of the KH-V include volume, tone and a three-way pickup selector toggle. Other pro features include a TonePros bridge with string-thru-body and LTD locking tuners.

An ESP deluxe hardshell case is included with the LTD Kirk Hammett Signature KH-V electric guitar.
