The ESP KH2 is a left handed version of Kirk Hammet's signature electric guitar. Now southpaws can own his signature model double cutaway!

Over the past thirty years Kirk Hammett and Metallica have single-handedly changed the face of music, sold more albums than any metal band in history, and continue to inspire new generations of musicians. Kirk’s solos are a crucial part of Metallica’s dominating sound, and he has relied on ESP for more than two decades to make him guitars that meet his every need.

The ESP KH2 has an alder body with a comfortable extra thin "U" shaped bolt on maple neck. The rosewood fingerboard has skull and crossbone inlays and 24 XJ frets. The active EMG 81 and EMG 60 pickups were selected for their crisp, clear sound. The KH2 also features all black hardware and a reversed headstock with the classic 2-color ESP logo and Kirk's signature. The ESP KH2 includes a form fitted hardshell case.

"I'm glad I made the decision to go with ESP, because they do not let me down. And they make us the best guitars." - Kirk Hammett
