The ESP LTD Kirk Hammett signature Demonology solidbody electric guitar is a bold-looking addition to Kirk's lauded line of instruments. It boasts the same iconic body style, duo of high-output active EMG 81 and 60 humbucking pickups, and rock-solid Floyd Rose that have made these guitars popular. But the Demonology is clothed in a striking Demonology graphic that is sure to turn heads at your next gig.
Nothing screams hard rock like ESP's high-mass, double-cutaway alder design, which gives the ESP Demonology incredible sustain and incredible bite. Its unique graphic finish is based on a guitar that Hammett is working hard on Metallica's world tours. Not only does the finish stand out, but the all-black hardware — including a bullet-proof Floyd Rose double-locking tremolo — furthers its sinister appearance.
ESP LTD guitars were created to bring more affordable versions of their classic designs and quality to a new market. The entire ESP LTD line of instruments features premium tonewoods, quality pickups, and solid hardware for a lifetime of use. An exacting eye to detail and quality means that every instrument is ready to rock when it leaves the factory. An impressive list of signature guitars by some of today's biggest guitar heroes shows the popularity and respect held by ESP LTD.
Hard rockers and aggressive players have turned to EMG active pickups for years for their amazing tone, exceptional dynamic response, and reliable performance. Delivering the Demonology's tone are EMG 60 and EMG 81 humbucking pickups. The 81's high output and extended low and high frequencies are fantastic for pummeling your amplifier. And the 61 active humbucker in the neck position retains a bell-like clarity through even the highest gain settings.
