Metallica's Kirk Hammett At Guitar


collapse expand iconDescription

The ESP LTD Kirk Hammett Signature White Zombie electric guitar. This signature model from Metallica's lead guitarist Kirk Hammett is a reproduction of his own White Zombie guitar and features graphics from the iconic horror film. Built for high-speed shredding, the KH-WZ features an alder body, maple neck and rosewood fretboard with 24 extra-jumbo frets. Power comes from active EMG Bone Breaker pickups and a Floyd Rose 1000 bridge allows radical divebombs and squeals. Whether you're a hardcore Metallica fan or just seeking a high performance instrument for unleashing sonic mayhem, check out the ESP LTD KH-WZ.

EMG Bone Breaker Pickups Provide Aggressive Tone

The ESP LTD KH-WZ is armed with EMG Bone Breaker active pickups, a signature model developed with Kirk Hammett to produce his trademark tone. The ceramic magnets and hot output of these pickups deliver tight, high-output distortion perfect for playing Metallica's catalog or your own brand of metal. A three-way toggle lets you switch between the neck, bridge or both pickups together.

Floyd Rose Bridge Enables Divebombs Galore

The KH-WZ features a Floyd Rose 1000 double-locking tremolo bridge for radical divebombs, squeals and tuning stability. The Floyd Rose bridge floats on knife-edge pivots and locks the strings at the bridge and nut. This allows for wild manipulation of pitch with the tremolo arm while keeping the guitar in tune. The bridge also features fine tuners for precise adjustment of each string's pitch.

Fast-Playing Neck and Bat/Spider Inlays

The bolt-on maple neck has an ultra-fast thin U profile that plays lightning quick. A rosewood fretboard has 24 extra-jumbo frets for a smooth feel and spider/bat position inlays as a nod to the White Zombie graphics. The neck also has black binding and LTD die-cast tuners for solid and stable tuning.

Custom Graphic Form-Fitted Case Included

The ESP LTD KH-WZ comes with a custom graphic form-fitted case from the Tombstone Case Company to protect your instrument in style. The case is shaped to fit the unique contours of the guitar and features graphics matching the theme of the White Zombie artwork.
