Comments about ESP James Hetfield Truckster LTD Electric Guitar:
My local music store had one of those ESP Hetfield LTD Truckster, which I happily picked up and began acoustically playing. I didn't expect a lot, but the feel of the guitar alone made me want to buy it. I'm not into spending over 1000 dollars on a Les Paul copy, though. The sound, amplified, was alright, but it is really a metal rhythm guitar, which is what Hetfield does.
