James Hetfield Iron Cross Guitar

download (2)

Available in limited quantities in 2009 only, the James Hetfield Iron Cross Guitar┬áis 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.
