Esp Iron Cross wiki

he erstwhile Metallica man has had more than his fair share of ESP signature models and we’ve played them all save the original flamed-festooned, V-shaped JH-1. From the JH-2 to the Truckster and The Grynch baritone, each has played wonderfully but nothing beats the Iron Cross we reviewed and filmed only last month. From the perfect faux aging courtesy of Nash Guitars to the gorgeous neck, this is a guitar worth trying. Best start saving now, mind and that’s if you can still find one for sale anywhere other than scumbag eBay rip-off sites..

Esp Iron Cross replica

Our Iron Cross is serial #15 of the 30 that are available in the USA! (That is only 1 per 10,135,324 people!) Oh, and if you have to ask how much it costs, you probably can’t afford it.

The ESP Iron Cross James Hetfield signature guitar is a replica of the model featured on Metallica’s 2009 Death Magnetic tour. ESP has only produced a limited quantity of these guitars. The Iron Cross features a relic finish designed to look exactly like James Hetfield’s original customized 1973 ‘Iron Cross’ Gibson Les Paul.

The ESP Iron Cross features include a set-neck, 24.75” scale, mahogany body with maple cap, mahogany neck, 22 XJ EVO “Gold” Ni- Free alloy frets, distressed gold hardware that includes Sperzel locking tuners, Schaller straplocks, Tonepros Locking bridge & tailpiece, and special EMG 81 (B) / 60 (N) active pickups with distressed gold covers. It has an odd pickup switch configuration where the toggle in the upper position is inactive. The guitar’s finish is a highly distressed black with a gold racing stripe and a metal iron cross on the body top.

Esp Iron Cross prix

Bonjour à tous!

Je cherche à échanger ou vendre ma gratte.

C’est une ESP Eclipse II CTM Distressed produite la dernière semaine de 2008 qui a été customisée pour être la réplique de la guitare favorite de James Hetfield. Je l’ai depuis septembre ou octobre 2009.

Elle est splendide comme on peut le voir sur les photos.

Alors après il faut savoir que l’ESP Eclipse de base qui a servi à la customisation est un peu différente de l’Eclipse “classique”. Elle ressemble plus à une Les Paul Custom (mais bien plus légère et un poil plus fine). Et sonne du feu de dieu.

Voici la gratte originale.

Mes recherches :
– Gibson LP Slash en prio.
– Gibson LP Std.
– Gibson LP Faded.
A savoir qu’une compensation peut-être possible dans un sens ou l’autre, je peux même rajouter un iPhone 3GS 32gb blanc.

Si vous êtes intéressés, n’hésitez pas à me MP.
Prix : 1600€

EDIT PRIX : 1500€ si elle part vite!
