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-602 is loaded with a set of EMG Kirk Hammett Bone Breaker Signature pickups and a Floyd Rose 1000 locking tremolo. The neck-thru-body construction delivers maximum tone and resonance while the extra thin "U" shaped neck 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

What A Purchase


Bought this guitar December 2018 and I still enjoy picking it up and playing...anything from Simple Minds To Van Halen to Metallica


Indianapolis, IN




I have 4 guitars and this one is my favorite, I have a gibson sg and this blows it away. However this is all around but better for metal sounding. You can replicate Kirk's sound.

The Most Shocking Guitar Ever Made


I Finally Got to play this guitar, after wanting to for a very long time. Ive played the other ESP models that Kirk Hammett has avaliable I liked them but they were all missing something, you know that one thing a guitarist looks for when deciding on their axe. Well this axe had everything Ive been looking for so I played and played and decided to buy it and I abuse this thing every night on stage and its like nothing Ive ever played.......

Review , KH602 Kirk Hammet guitar


This product is very amazing. Though i love Jeff Hanneman's band Slayer. I prefer the Kirk Hammett KH602 series from the feel,pick up, and tone. Metallica can die for all i care. But the equipment they use is very, very satisfying. This one plays Black Metal and has no shame playing a Kirk Hammett KH602 signature model becuase of its quality.

My Review Of The Kirk Hammett Signature Model ESP KH-602


"Let me tell you! This is the best freakin guitar I have ever had in my hands!!! I have played many guitars and this one tops them all! I was in one of your stores in Charlotte NC about a month ago. I picked up the Zakk Wylde signature Model Gibson, The Black & White Bullseye one, I thought it was a great guitar, then I picked up the KH-603 cause yall didn't have the 602 in stock at the store and it blew the gibson staight out of the water!!!!!! I want to say first and foremost, THANK YOU KIRK HAMMETT FOR THE GREAT AXE MAN!!, Secondly, THANK YOU ESP FOR BUILDING SUCH A GREAT GUITAR!!,[...]THANK YOU ALL!!!!"
