I traded an old Ibanez RG has been sitting around to get a discount on these, and I’m glad I did. The neck is a little gr it as the Wizard II neck, which I had on my Ibanez Stratocaster neck or my American Deluxe. I have small H Nde, so I always played sleeve with smaller guitars H, But lately I have some pain in the gripping hand noticed when I play. Suggested my guitar tech try another head to head on “Thin U” LTD is a little different, but it’s still a very flat, fast neck.

Time will, when all is said It works for me. James Hetfield “Het Set” pick ups on this guitar are amazing. You are able to balls but they rock k Can also play the blues, country and very clean. You really nail the old Metallica stuff (I do not know anything ren to justice for all and the album to h, So I can not say about the new stuff), and they are much more life to them as your EMG level (sounding tablet) active pickups. I’m really impressed with them.

The aim of this guitar is very good. You can k Actually give on this thing and it will stay tuned. It is built like a tank. The set neck is super soft and, although his painting, it is not difficult to slow down after the game. It weighs about 8.3 pounds, so its easier than a Les Paul, but he gr as a strat. ESP had made this guitar in the world Musical Instruments Company in Korea. With this build quality Tk Might be thought, it was in Japan or the United States, the build quality T really well done. I only had two days are coming, so I will back here time and gives an update on this topic. So far I am very impressed.

If you are interested in buying one of these do you go to YouTube and check out some reviews on this model. Anst some information Quantcast there.

ESP James Hetfield Signature Iron Cross Snow White Guitar’s be armored with EMG JH SET on the bridge and neck position. This pickup are sleek Diamond-like carbon (DLC) plated caps and EMG’s Solderless Installation System components, the JH Set consists of the JH-N (neck) and the JH-B (bridge). Both pickups were patterned after the pickups James has used for 30 years but the end result was a completely different animal. The JH-N has individual ceramic poles and bobbins that feature a larger core and are taller than the 60. This produces more attack, higher output, and fuller low end in the neck position. The JH-B uses the same type of core but has steel pole pieces, unlike the 81 that uses bar magnets. This produces the familiar tight attack with less inductance for a cleaner low end.

Honestly the best sounding pickups i’ve ever heard. They can handle all the distortion you can throw at them and still have note definition and clarity. That goes for Clean tones as well, Very clear, big beautiful sounding chords and clear leads. There’s a vol knob for each pickup, and a master tone knob. There are 2 switches on the guitar, one, the lower one, controls pickup selection. The other, near the neck, on top, does nothing, just like James Hetfield’ s very own guitar.

James Hetfield Cross Guitar

20150127125152

This James Hetfield Cross Guitar features a very subtle JH logo on the headstock that doesn’t scream ‘signature model’ and thus limit the potential market for the guitar too much. This more subtle approach to artist branding looks far more classy and widens appeal far more than a name sprawled across the neck or 12 fret ever would!

The body design is more compact and modern looking than a traditional single cut shape and seems very sleek and contemporary, especially when matched with the wave topped headstock design.

Construction quality is right up there with the best of the LTD range and the Iron Cross SW certainly feels like a much more expensive guitar. As with the KH-WZ, all aspects of the guitar are flawlessly finished with fantastic paint and fret work, matched with a great setup and hardware fitting. Everything is tight and well put together with a feel that lines up well or even better than the price of the guitar suggests. As such, playability is very good indeed with a fast thin, U-shaped neck and XJ frets allowing for easy and effortless technique application, perfect for power chords or lead work across the whole range of the neck. Obviously, upper fret access isn’t up there with the double cut KH-WZ but reaching the 22nd fret isn’t an issue and the addition of the belly cut on the back of the body allows for more comfortable playing experiences than with a traditional LP-style guitar.

Tonally, the James Hetfield Cross Guitar is a beast thanks to those great sounding (and great looking) EMG JH humbuckers. The JH pickups have a lot of output thanks to the active design but they aren’t just about their bark and bite and can quite happily handle lower gain and clean tones with style. Heavily overdriven tones retain lots of clarity and tightness, perfect for low tuned power chord chugging or palm muted single notes and lead tones are just as silky smooth as the EMG81 in the KH-WZ model. Of course it can scream too if required and can really push a lower gain amp into impressive break up tones by pushing the front end hard with the volume all the way up!

Very few Metallica fans will ever be able to afford the ESP version of the Iron Cross guitar and the LTD version does an extremely impressive job of producing an affordable alternative that matches almost all of the hardware and ethos of the original while retaining much of the high quality build of the original. Of course this can’t match all aspects of the ESP version but I’m sure it’ll come close enough for most people to justify its respectable and very fair asking price. The design, hardware and playability all add up to a very appealing guitar that’s well worth checking out for both fans and non-fans of James Hetfield alike. Oh, and you get a case with this one, too!

Hetfield White Iron Cross

Electric Sound Products, better know to guitarists as ESP, started humbly enough in Tokyo, Japan in 1975. The company rose on its reputation for high-quality, custom-made replacement guitar parts and components, but it didn’t take long for ESP to start crafting their own instruments. Hetfield has been a major endorser of ESP Guitars since the 1980s, and is best known for playing custom-made Explorer-style guitars with an EMG 81/EMG 60 set for pickups.

Metallica’s James Hetfield, who began using their guitars extensively in the late ’80s while in the twilight of the band’s thrash-metal era, often championed ESP’s quality, playability, and tone. And in the years since, ESP has produced a plethora of Hetfield signature models. And now in 2014 they make new James Hetfield Signature Series model ‘Iron Cross’ in Snow White finish. This guitar has the Eclipse body shape; Snow White finish with black hardware, with a black racing stripe and a black Iron Cross on the body. It is based on the design of his 1970s Gibson Les Paul Custom. Let’s see the detail specs of this guitar.

Available in limited quantities in 2009 only, the ESP James Hetfield Signature Iron Cross is currently featured on Metallica’s Death Magnetic World Tour. Painstaking effort has gone into recreating every nuance of James’ original guitar, while adding some new characteristics to make a truly unique signature ESP instrument.

The Iron Cross is identical to the instrument that James actually plays and features a distressed finish and hardware, and even has wear on the neck and fretboard. The Iron Cross has a set-maple neck on a mahogany/maple body that is matched with EMG active pickups to give all the great tone and sustain you could ever want. This is a very ominous guitar that will not be available for long.

I have been a huge fan of Metallica and ESP/LTD guitars for 25 years and this guitar certainly doesn’t disappoint. I also have the Snakebyte and the Truckster (among other ESP’s)and love ’em all. The build quality is outstanding, the Hetfield pickups sound great, it comes with an ESP case, and the guitar overall is just simply amazing and more beautiful in person. I did add strap locks but other than that I wouldn’t change anything about the guitar.

The Iron Cross SW is available both as one of the super high-end ESP range and also in the company’s Far Eastern produced (and thus more affordable) LTD series. Our review version was the LTD model and right from the start let me say it represents superb value for money. Bear in mind that the ESP original retails for around the price of a second hand car, while this LTD version is just over four figures, yet features almost identical hardware and construction. That’s great value!

The LTD Iron Cross is the latest James Hetfield signature model and features a single cut LP-Style solid mahogany body with a maple top, 22-fret mahogany neck with ebony fretboard, set-neck design and moulded nut. The guitar features a pair of active EMG JH signature humbuckers, with a three way switch, volume and independent tone controls. A further three way switch sits onto of the upper bout of the body in a traditional LP-style but is redundant and purely for visual flair. Hardware is completed with a Tonepros Locking TOM bridge and tailpiece, 22 XJ frets and LTD locking tuners. For reference, the ESP version features a bone nut and Schaller locking tuners – in all other respects the hardware is identical.

The James Hetfield Guitar Iron Cross features a very memorable white finish with three back stripes across its top, black scratch plate and the large, metal Iron Cross attached to the back behind the tailpiece. The single cut body is bound with a double black line around its circumference that adds an extra level of class to the design. It’s certainly a memorable look, although I can see a number of buyers being put off by the use of the Iron Cross. The fretboard features some very well executed flag inlays that culminate in a further Iron Cross design across the 11th, 12th and 13th frets.

As with the KH-WZ model, this James Hetfield Guitar Iron Cross features a very subtle JH logo on the headstock that doesn’t scream ‘signature model’ and thus limit the potential market for the guitar too much. This more subtle approach to artist branding looks far more classy and widens appeal far more than a name sprawled across the neck or 12 fret ever would!

The body design is more compact and modern looking than a traditional single cut shape and seems very sleek and contemporary, especially when matched with the wave topped headstock design.

James Hetfield Iron Cross Esp

xlarge

The ESP James Hetfield Signature Iron Cross Electric Guitar is designed to the meet the performance demands of its namesake. It features a mahogany body with a maple top, distinctive graphics and set-neck construction. mahogany is a classic ingredient in both slab and multi-wood (or laminated) bodies. mahogany’s characteristic tone is warm and somewhat soft, but well balanced with good grind and bite. There is usually good depth to the sound, with full but not especially tight lows, and appealing if unpronounced highs. Mahogany has a completely different weight and stiffness with a unique dampening factor.

This is my newest addition to my collection, and I must say that the tone this thing puts out is terrific! I wanted this because I had my eye on a similar guitar in the past, but was unwilling to shell out the money that was being asked to have it custom made. This guitar has all of the features I was looking for but for a fraction of the cost. The pickups in this guitar are quite different to the EMG 81/60 combo I’m used to, and the sound is a lot fuller, and warmer. The neck pickup has a lot more output than the EMG 60, and the bridge pickup gives a much warmer attack than the 81. The white finish with the black hardware and ebony fingerboard make for a beautiful instrument. The pic on here really doesn’t do it justice. If you decide to purchase this, you will probably want to have it setup, as it comes completely factory sealed. All in all I would recommend this guitar to anyone who likes the looks of it, because no matter what type of music you’re into playing, you wont be disappointed in the sound

In the world of heavy metal guitarists, the name James Hetfield of Metallica reigns supreme.
The visionary rhythm guitarist front man of Metallica, James has brought an onslaught of metal annihilation for over 25 years and his ESP and LTD signature guitars have stood at the forefront with him.

On the neck this Esp James Hetfield Iron Cross Huitar guitar has made from mahogany which a thin U-shape profile, 24.75″ scale and smooth ebony fretboard. The material combination of neck and fretboard on this guitar is popular upmarket pairing, the ebony fretboard contributes to a little more tightness, clarity, and definition, as compared to the mahogany/rosewood neck. A very dense, hard wood, ebony makes for a fast attack from the instrument—all else being equal—and it offers a muscular, controlled bass, and snappy, sizzling highs. With a mahogany back contributing some warmth and openness to the brew, this can be a very appealing pairing. Ebony also wears very well, and it doesn’t divot under years of finger-and-string pressure nearly as easily as rosewood does. This guitar has a neck thin U-shape profile. If it compare with Wizard II neck, the Thin U is quite a bit larger than a Wizard II. It’s slightly thinner than a Schecter neck. Even the Thin U is a lot more curved and slightly fatter than a Wizard II. The esp neck is very comfortable for me. Fingerboard is equipped with 22 jumbo-sized frets, with flag and cross inlays.
