It was perfectly set-up right out of the box. I swung by Guitar Center to make sure and there were no adjustments to be made. The neck is fast, smooth and plays really well. I truly noticed a difference in my playing almost immediately. It just oozes quality in construction and design. The colors are crisp and bright, I was blown away with how gorgeous it is in person, well-packaged for shipping and not a single blemish. I’m loving the JH signature EMG pickups, you can hear the difference in playing over “regular old” active pickups. The tone is more percussive but also rich sounding. The guitar is lighter than I thought it would be so it’s very comfortable to stand and play for long periods. Locking turners are a breeze. This guitar has definitely exceeded my expectations. I’m in love
This Esp White Iron Cross Guitar 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.
