Is this the most beautiful Kirk Hammett ESP ever built, to most it is. What a great specs on these KH-20 guitars. Very few made and they they look striking. This limited edition ESP Kirk Hammett 20th Anniversary KH-20 guitar is based on the original guitar designed by the legendary Kirk Hammett of Metallica.

It features neck-thru-body construction. The neck is super strong, 3-piece maple with a thin U-shape for speed and comfort, enhanced by the 24 extra jumbo frets on the ebony fretboard.

The alder body sports a flame maple top, the striking grain shining from a gorgeous see-through finish. The great woods aren't just for looks, however. Alder provides great sustain and the maple heightens tone brightness and clarity.

Of course, it wouldn't do to start off with great tone and then lose it with the wrong pickups. That's why ESP has installed the highly sought-after EMG 81 Active pickup set in this Kirk Hammett Anniversary signature.

A genuine Floyd Rose tremolo system with locking nut combined with Sperzel tuners ensure you can dive bomb all night and keep your intonation intact.

Inlaid in the ebony fretboard are mother of pearl Skull & Bones with a special KH-20 Mirror Signature at the 12th fret.

Thousands of players have been inspired by Kirk Hammett's genre-defining abilities; ESP hopes to inspire these players to perform at their highest levels when they pick up their ESP electric guitars
