The ESP LTD KH-202 solidbody electric guitar means business. Metallica axeman Kirk Hammett's signature guitar gives you a comfortable contoured basswood body that fits you like a glove, while a speedy maple neck and rosewood fingerboard pave the way for extremely fast fretting. The guitar's bolt-on design delivers sustain for weeks, while specially designed ESP humbuckers dish out a massive arsenal of tone and a Floyd Rose bridge serves up the vibe. For big value in terms of quality, tone, and playability, get the ESP LTD KH-202.
Nothing screams hard rock like ESP's high-mass double-cutaway design, which gives the KH-202 incredible sustain and bite. Designed to resemble Kirk's original ESP without the road wear, its deep black finish sets off the iconic skull and crossbone inlays on the rosewood fingerboard. The dual ESP-designed extreme-gain humbuckers put out tons of confrontational tone with a 3-way pickup selector that lets you explore a vast tonal range. And a true Floyd Rose tremolo lets you pull off deep dive-bombs that always return to pitch.
Working closely with the influential guitar players in their roster, ESP has built an impressive collection of artist signature instruments. From George Lynch to Ron Wood to Gus G. to James Hetfield; like Kirk, they are the who's who of rock and metal guitardom; and their signature axes sport the personalized features and specs that make them unique. ESP's Signature series is all about tone and playability — and because they're members of ESP's affordable LTD series, these guitars offer incredible value.
ESP started as a manufacturer of after-market guitar parts in Japan in the late 1970s. By the mid-'80s, ESP was making custom guitars for some of the biggest names in rock. An exacting eye toward playability and craftsmanship has made ESP Guitars one of the most visible and prevalent guitar brands in rock and metal. Their commitment to quality is second to none, and with an impressive roster of endorsers, it's clear that ESP makes the axes that today's guitar heroes use.
