ESP LTD Kirk Hammett Signature KH-602 – Purple Sparkle

Solidbody Electric Guitar with Alder Body, Maple Neck, Ebony Fingerboard, 2 x Humbucking Pickups, and Floyd Rose Tremolo – Purple Sparkle

Hammett’s New Look and New Sound

The image of Kirk Hammett with his ESP solidbody electric guitars slung over his shoulder has left an imprint on every rock guitarist in the last few decades. Yet the ESP LTD KH-602 adds a few new twists to his beloved signature model to bring it into a new era. Right away, you’ll notice the show-stopping purple sparkle finish, inspired by Hammett’s personal stage guitar. The second update is the inclusion of Hammett’s signature EMG Bone Breaker humbucking pickups, injecting the LTD KH-602 with even more crisp clarity than ever before.

Built for Kirk’s iconic style

While most guitarists change their gear on a whim, Hammett has been using and abusing his ESP KH-series non-stop since he first strapped them on decades ago. A big reason for that is their no-nonsense, player-friendly design. You’ll find a comfortable and sleek alder body that’s contoured to allow unencumbered performance. The guitar’s maple neck is carved to an extra thin U profile to allow for your fastest runs. And, of course, you’ll enjoy all of the stability and control of a Floyd Rose 1000 double locking tremolo.

Kirk Hammett signature EMG Bone Breaker pickups

The ESP LTD KH-602 is also a bold platform for the Metallica axeman to introduce his signature active EMG Bone Breaker humbucking pickups. Crafted using Alnico 5 and ceramic magnets, you’ll appreciate how they deliver plenty of sweet character while still sounding bold enough for metal. If you’re a fan of the aggressive tone that EMG has carved out, but desire a bit more restraint and clarity for non-metal styles, you’re going to love the LTD KH-602 and its EMG Bone Breaker humbucking pickups.

ESP Signature series guitars deliver the goods

Working closely with the influential guitar players on 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.
