A Perfect Metal Axe

By Rob-rOz6g

from Queens, N.Y. USA

Comments about ESP LTD KH-602 Kirk Hammett Signature Series Guitar:

I just received this guitar, and was totally blown away with it's killer looks and sound. It has instantly become become my #1 axe. I did get the guitar set up with new GHS boomers 10's, however it did play nice right out of the box. Now with the setup it's in a totally new realm. The tech who set it up even said it is one hot guitar, with the EMG 81. This is my first Floyd Rose, and I am having a lot of fun with it.

Well worth the price

By NathanM

from Stanford University

Comments about ESP LTD KH-602 Kirk Hammett Signature Series Guitar:

I ordered my KH602 from Music123 and I must say I'm completely satisfied. Kirk Hammett is one of my favorite guitarists, so this guitar was one of my first choices when I needed a new axe. The EMG 81s are powerful and provide killer tone and sustain, action is superb, the black finish is beautiful and the skull and crossbones inlays provide some definite attitude. If you're not patient this isn't really the axe for you though, tuning a Floyd Rose bridge takes a lot more time than your regular fixed bridge set up, but once you're patient and know what you're getting into, you should have no problems. I would recommend this guitar especially to metal guitarists, but it would make a worthy addition to any one's roster of guitars. If you want a signature on the headstock, an ESP instead of LTD, a bolt on neck and an alder body, then shell out a lot more cash for the KH2 or KH2 Relic. otherwise, just get this axe. Without doubt, one of the best ever.

Comments about ESP LTD KH-602 Kirk Hammett Signature Series Guitar:

This guitar is amazing! I even think its better than the esp kh 2 for $1700. This guitar is simply great. Awesome pickups for a great metal sound. This guitar has a neck through body unlike the kh-2. Overall amazing guitar.

A Swiss Army guitar

By Ryan-bJO_F

from USA portage MI

Comments about ESP LTD KH-602 Kirk Hammett Signature Series Guitar:

I play it all from punk to funk and this is my main guitar for all styles. Its beautiful and designed by the best. The KHs can produce a heavy tone or an almost acoustic clean tone. They're perfect and good for all music from punk to funk and even folk. They are Swiss Army Guitars ht

Kicks

By V-M6tGC

Comments about ESP LTD KH-602 Kirk Hammett Signature Series Guitar:

I had an Ibanez RG170R, then I got this. It was like going from a Fiat car to a Rolls Royce! The XL Jumbo frets are good and very comfortable to play on. The sound is simply amazing. THIS IS A MUST HAVE!
