I use this guitar every day for about 2-3 hours and i cannot stand owning it! the floyd rose in this guitar is junk. I have had to take it to my guitar tech over 12 times a year..

Do yourself a favor and do not buy this guitar!!

    Comments about ESP KH202 Kirk Hammett Signature Model Left Handed Electric Guitar (Black):

    do not buy this under any circumstances. it was ok for a few months then the licensed floyd rose started to break. once i replaced it, i later enocountered some intonation problems, and i can't find a guitar tech who is able to fix it completely because it was just made faulty. this is not the first example of poor craftsmanship for a lefty guitar, but i expected better.

    Comments about ESP KH202 Kirk Hammett Signature Model Left Handed Electric Guitar (Black):

    I use have used this guitar everyday for at least 2 hours a day. I was somewhat skeptical when I ordered it, but boy am I glad I did. First off this thing is light as a feather, good for long shows and ease of use. Second the neck, it's awesome. super fast and is unfinished which I kinda like. This guitar does stay in tune, when ever you see people crying that it doesn't, they are novices and dont understand that all strings have to be broke in and stretched. The Floyd Rose is spectacular, you really can crank the wah pedal and smash on the wammy like Kirk, and go right back to an in tune guitar. Then only real down fall of this guitar is it needs the EMG 81's.
    and I have yet to find out if there is room for a battery in this sucker.

    Comments about ESP KH202 Kirk Hammett Signature Model Left Handed Electric Guitar (Black):

    Have had this guitar several months and love the feel of the unfinished neck and has great action. I have active EMG 81's in my EC1000 and love 'em. But when people say these HZs are the same just inactive are crazy. They sound thick and muddy and the tone control is about useless. Also the licensed floyd rose tremolo is junk. I can not get this guitar to stay in tune, considering either blocking the trem. or upgrading to a real floyd. Have read on floyd rose website that the lic. floyds have a tendancy to wear quickly at pivot area and causes tuning issues. For the money I guess you get what you pay for.
