This is exactly the same instrument ESP makes for Kirk to his specifications.

In most respects the limited edition ESP KH-2 Kirk Hammett Signature Series Electric Guitar is an M-II Deluxe that's been loaded with screaming EMG-81/60 active humbuckers. The extra thin flat neck has a 24 extra-jumbo fret fingerboard to provide a springboard to intense, fleet-fingered flurries of riffage and extreme note bending. The finely crafted skull-and-crossbones pearl inlays add an extra dollop of menace. Includes hardshell case.

Comments about ESP KH-2 Kirk Hammett Signature Series Electric Guitar:

This is by far the best guitar ive ever played. Ive waited 16 yrs to own it. Im a huge kirk hammett fan. Wanted this since i was 13. Ive played many guitars ranging from beginner to high end expensive. The neck is awesome. Plays so fast and strings bend very easily. The floyd rose never goes out of tune. This guitar is made to rock and shred. Worth every penny. The ltd line is good but the real esp blew me away. Highly recommend.

best guitar ever played

By risu

Comments about ESP KH-2 Kirk Hammett Signature Series Electric Guitar:

I bought this guitar about 5 years ago. I still feel like holding something special every time I play with it. It is really worth every penny! One amazing thing about it is the tuning. It lasts forever, you don't even have to fine tune it for weeks. Really high-end manufacturing! You won't be disappointed in any manner.

Awesome Tone

By chuck h.

from Baxley / McRae, GA

Comments about ESP KH-2 Kirk Hammett Signature Series Electric Guitar:

I recorded a teenager recently who had one of these guitars, and I have nothing but praises for the tone of this axe. I've been around a lot of guitarists playing a myriad of guitars through all types of amps, playing different styles, but this guitar cut through the mix and had a big, soaring tone, especially higher up the neck - without getting to bright or brittle. By the way, the kid was playing through a Crate, and not a high-dollar amp. I'm not a pure guitarist, but I know tone when I hear it. If I had the $$$, I'd invest in one. If you're a serious rock guitarist, you won't go wrong with this one.

DON'T MISS YOUR CHANCE

By Jay-30Co_

from New Zealand

Comments about ESP KH-2 Kirk Hammett Signature Series Electric Guitar:

This guitar is awesome, the feel, the look and the sound of it. I started off with cheap Jackson JS1 then about a year later i got this guitar. Its my first year playing. When i played this guitar i auctioned my Jackson on www.trademe.co.nz straight away. It's also the place i got my guitar from. I got this guitar for a steal not going to mention how much I got it for but yeah its an awesome guitar and you must not miss this opportunity. Get it quick before ESP stops producing them.

top quality guitar

By tyler-eHT.N

from coeur d alene idaho

Comments about ESP KH-2 Kirk Hammett Signature Series Electric Guitar:

I own quite a few guitars including the white jem7 (steve vai), and the kh relic. The relic and this one have completely different necks. The relic has a rounder feel while the kh is squared on the edges of the neck towards the fretboard. The relic has a thin lacquer, and the kh is entirely unfinished. The kh is the lighter of the two. Both actions come in at similar heights (very low). The relic just beats this one by a hair, however both of their build qualities are excellent. I finally found a guitar that beats out the jackson soloist. These guitars make the soloist feel almost too loose as far as the feel of the strings, almost sloppy. Im a very serious guitar player and very critical of playability yet i consider the two esp kh guitars to be the best for any lead players or people who just want a fast neck.

Comments about ESP KH-2 Kirk Hammett Signature Series Electric Guitar:

this guitar is amazing.......120 000/10 but if u look for the kh-2 relic on this site u will see that it has dropped significantly in price. and i would recommend getting that 1 instead because it is no longer 2 much more than this 1. but by the time this posts the relic will probably be sold out. so goo dluck. if the relic is gone by the time u read this then definitely buy this 1. u will not regret it

The best

By S. Stephens

from Bakersfield, CA

Comments about ESP KH-2 Kirk Hammett Signature Series Electric Guitar:

I have had this guitar for only two days now and I have fallen in love with it. I have an KH-2 1995 Original with Certificate of Authenticity signed by Kirk Hammett himself, one of the first two hundred made. Pretty lucky huh? The dual EMG 81's have a wonderful sound that matches the look of the guitar. I am running it through a Brian May (lead guitarist for QUEEN) Vox amplifier and it sounds great. The sustain is wonderful and so is the feel of the neck when I am playing it. The workmanship of the skull and cross bone inlays are set to the perfect fit. I play it for many hours every day thinking that I have the best guitar in the world. If you are looking to buy one, than I HIGHLY recommend it.

Must Have

By AJ-8V7R7

from London

Comments about ESP KH-2 Kirk Hammett Signature Series Electric Guitar:

I've had this badboy for about 6 months now, and I can honestly say, its the nicest guitar I've ever played. It has everything, and it keeps on surprising me. I play a lot of Metallica/Pantera stuff, but it works for other kinds of music too. The sustain is absolutely amazing, it holds for ages. It seems a bit pricey at first but it is so worth the money, You'll never look back if you buy one.

best esp made

By Dean wilson

from ireland

Comments about ESP KH-2 Kirk Hammett Signature Series Electric Guitar:

I purchased this guitar about a week ago and I just can't stop playing it. The sustain is amazing. It's exactly the same as the relic (I know..I HAVE ONE..and the kh-3) but truthfully this is my favorite out of the lot. You should definitely get the neck-thru...the 24th fret is much more accessible.
