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. Esp James Hetfield Iron Cross Huitar 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.
