This is my latest Erg Nzung to my collection, and I must say that the tone of this thing is great awesome! I wanted because I had my eye on one Similar guitar in the past, but was not willing to shell out to do the money that has been requested to. This guitar has all the features I was looking for, but for a fraction of the cost. The pickups in this guitar are very different EMG 81/60 combo I’m used to, and the sound is much fuller and w Warmer. The neck pickup has a lot more power than the EMG 60 bridge pickup is much w Warmer than the attack 81.

The white s surface Che with the hardware and ebony black make for a beautiful nes instrument. The culmination is not really do it justice here. If you decide to buy it, you will probably want to install as it comes completely factory sealed. Overall, I would recommend this guitar to anyone who recommended the looks likes it because no matter what kind of music you are playing, you will not disappoint Uscht be in u sound.

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.

The Iron Cross LTD is the latest model of the James Hetfield signature and has an LP-style solid mahogany body simply cut with a maple top, mahogany neck 22-fret ebony handle, set design -Neck nut and molded. The guitar has a pair of EMG humbuckers signing JH assets, with a three way switch, volume control and The independent tone. Another three-way switch is the superior fighting the body in a traditional style LP but is redundant and purely for visual flair. The equipment is completed by a locking TOM bridge Tonepros and tailpiece 22 XJ frets and LTD locking tuners. For reference, the ESP version has a bone nut and Schaller locking tuners -. in all other respects is identical hardware

The SW Iron Cross has a very memorable white finish with three bands back through the top, black scratch plate and the big Iron Cross metal attached to the back behind the tailpiece. The only cutting body is bonded with a double black line around its circumference which adds an extra level of design class. This is certainly an unforgettable look, although I can see a number of buyers are put off by the use of the Iron Cross. The fretboard has some very well executed flag inlays that culminate in a new design Iron Cross through the 11th, 12th and 13th frets.

As for the model KH-WZ, the James Hetfield Signature has a very subtle JH logo on the head that does not scream Signature model and limit the potential market for the guitar too. This more subtle approach to the artist’s image looks more chic appeal and expands much more than a name on the extended neck or 12 frets would!

The body design is more compact and modern in a traditional form of simple cut and looks very stylish and contemporary, especially when matched with the wave topped doll design.

Metallica have been some of the most loyal artists on the ESP roster, having used the guitars for well over 20 years. As such, both Kirk Hammett and James Hetfield have had a slew of signature models over the years ranging from full scale, mass produced models to limited run, exclusive collector editions. ESP sent the Guitar Interactive team the latest signature models to check out – the KH-WZ Kirk Hammett and the LTD Iron Cross SW James Hetfield model. These two guitars are both in the mid to high price range, with high quality hardware and custom finishes that certainly stand out from the normal black designs you might have expected!

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 Iron Cross SW 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.

Our evaluation version was the LTD model from the start let me tell you it is an excellent value.

The body design is more compact and modern in a traditional form of simple cut and looks very stylish and contemporary, especially when matched with the wave topped doll design.

The build quality is right up there with the best range and LTD SW Iron Cross certainly feels like a much more expensive guitar. As with the KH-WZ, all aspects of the guitar are perfectly finished with fantastic painting and fret work, together with a large installation and mounting hardware. Everything is tight and well put together with a feeling that lines up well or better than the price suggests the guitar. As such, the gameplay is really good with a fast thin U-shaped neck and XJ frets to the application of the technique easy and effortless, perfect for power chords or lead work on all range of the neck. Obviously, upper fret access is not up there with the double cut KH-WZ but reaching the 22nd fret is not a problem and adding to cut down on the back of the body allows to live experiences more comfortable playing as a traditional LP style guitar.
