All Hardwares color of this guitar is black. Bridge section features a Tonepros Locking TOM Bridge & Tailpiece. A TonePros bridge will stay in place and not wiggle at all (even thread play is reduced). As a result, the instrument stays in tune better, has improved sustain, and harmonics will seem to jump out of your guitar. The tuners are Sperzel locking tuners. Not much to be said. They re known for being awesome, and Mega stable.
Overall the guitar sounds EPIC. Sounds amazing. Its James Hetfield’s signature guitar, its made for metal, and i’m pretty sure when it comes with EMG JH SET provides all the killer tones that metal players seek. provides all the killer tones that metal players seek. If you’re looking for an axe that can withstand the brutality of metal shredding, this guitar is worth a try. The price of ESP James Hetfield Signature Iron Cross Snow White Guitar 2014 is about $4,899.00 (it has also available a more budget-conscious LTD version)
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.
