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.
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)
