The ESP LTD Limited Edition "Master of Puppets" electric guitar commemorates the 30-year anniversary of Metallica's landmark album, and features a graphic finish that pays homage to the iconic cover art.

Believe it or not, it was thirty years ago, in the spring of 1986, that Metallica released what some people consider to be one of their greatest albums: Master of Puppets. In fact, earlier this year, the album was deemed "culturally, historically, or aesthetically significant" enough for preservation in the National Recording Registry by the United States Library of Congress, making it the only metal album to have received this honor. Master of Puppets was Metallica’s third album, and their first on a major label, and it included the well-known title track as well as favorites like “Battery”, “Welcome Home (Sanitarium)”, “Damage, Inc.”, and more.

As ESP Guitars has done with Metallica’s first two albums, they are proud to introduce a limited-edition LTD “Master of Puppets” Graphic Series guitar. Only 400 of these guitars will be made available worldwide. Its graphic finish mimics the album’s iconic cover art. The ESP LTD “Master of Puppets” guitar is sure to be a highly sought-after collectible by players and fans alike.          
The LTD "Master of Puppets" guitar features an alder body with bolt-on maple neck at 25.5" scale, and an ebony fingerboard with 24 XJ frets. An EMG 81 (neck and bridge) active pickup set is included, along with TOM bridge and string-thru-body design. The guitar also features a Metallica logo fingerboard inlay, and each guitar includes an ESP form-fit case with the Metallica logo, and a certificate of authenticity from ESP.

This guitar comes with a great Metallica sound as expected. I own another ESP - LTD EX-360 and played both one after the other for my daughter who knows nothing about guitars. She was like "Wow, your new guitar sounds amazingly better than your other one". I could tell an immediate difference as soon as I played my first riff. I actually had to turn down my amp volume with my new guitar because of the brilliant, loud, and powerful sound from the EMG pickups. I'm no expert but I attribute it from the pickups. Also, the amount of time a note echoes is amazing. Overall great guitar for the money. Did I mention the graphics are AWESOME...Glad I was able to get one of the 400 made.
