The ESP LTD KH-202 Kirk Hammett Signature Model Electric guitar delivers features and quality deserving the Metallica guitarist's name, without breaking the bank.

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 LTD Kirk Hammett KH-202 is loaded with an ESP Designed LH-301N pickup in the neck position, an ESP Designed LH-301B pickup in the bridge position and a Floyd Rose Special locking tremolo. The KH-202 has a bolt-on extra thin "U" shaped maple neck that is fast playing. Of course, what would the master of horror biz's guitar be without wicked skull and cross bones inlays? Case not included.

"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

Get your ESP LTD KH-202 Kirk Hammett Electric Guitar today at the guaranteed lowest price from Sam Ash Direct with our 45-day return and 60-day price protection policy.

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

This guitar is a piece of dump. It sounds and plays like an Adam Sandler joke. It says you shouldn't have to tune for weeks, i find myself tuning it everyday. It is a waste of your time and money.

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

      i absolutely love this guitar. I've had it for nearly a year now and had no regrets. the floyd rose is amazing for divebombs and what not. out of the box it had a little fret buzz but it was easily fixed by adjusting the action of the strings. the pickups aren't terrible but they would be better if they were emgs. this guitar is still beast with the right equipment and distortion.

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

      I've been playing for around 18 months or so. This guitar is awesome! The neck feels so nice, the tremolo bar is really sweet, and it sounds awesome.

      Just get some thicker strings on it, put on more tension springs in the back, and it'll work just fine.

      I got this guitar about, hm, just over a year ago? It has to be the best investment I ever made. If you love Metallica or ANY metal band for that matter, you're in for a surprise. Honestly, I think it may even be better than a Gibson Les Paul.

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

        I've owned this guitar for about 3 months now, and I love it to death!! I can NOT put it down!! This is a guitar made just for metallica fans, but don't be fooled by its skull & crossbone inlayed frets(which are awsome) this baby has a soft-side when it comes to clean songs like, Fade To Black or Nothing Else Matters. The only bummer is that if you were interested in buy this guitar and putting active pick-ups on it, you can't. due to the fact that active pick-ups need a battery, this guitar doesn't have room for it, so you can only put passive pick-ups on it. very very very small fret buzz but can be avoided if you play correctly. Floyd Rose is thee best!! escially the tremelo bar is great for those divebombs! locking tremelo keeps the strings in tune for about a month at a time, even if you play with the whammy bar! BUY THIS GUITAR!!! Kirk fan or not, this is thee best.

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

          I decided to play the guitar as a hobby/passtime, but the moment I saw *this* beauty the hobby become a 24/7 self-training exprience. The look and feel is amazing, I rarely have to tune it (and I practice atleast 2-2.5hrs a day), the skeletons on the inlay give it that heavy metal look, and the whammy bar feedback has caught the eye of my neighbor's daughter (lol). All in all i'd say this is the best guitar i've ever had a chance to pratice with. Just holding the guitar gives you that K. Hammett feeling, and as I hooked this baby up to my amp and heard that 6th string pound I entered a different world. Just replace the EMGS with 81/85 and your good to go!

              i went in to the store wanting to get a new Acoustic/Electric guitar. i found myself bored and just felt like it wasnt the tright time for me to get an acoustic. i walked over to the electric section and this beautiful guitar caught my eye. i picked it up and immediately fell in love. great body, the sound is intense, and the fret feel is rediculous. i highly recommend this piece of work especially for the price
