The Kahler hybrid tremolo lets you dive-bomb screaming targets without losing tuning stability. This ESP Jeff Hanneman guitar also has a dark and deadly look with an ebony fretboard and black hardware. White H-dagger inlays and white neck and headstock binding accent the ESP LTD JH-600 guitar's black-on-blackness.

    I've had this guitar for about a year I bought it used for pretty cheap it's a 2008 model I don't know if they've changed anything between then and now but I like this guitar pretty well. It did have a minor fret buzz around the 7th and 8th fret but a quick change of strings and a truss rod adjustment fixed that problem right up. I don't gig with this guitar mainly because I don't take my higher end guitars to gigs, but I do record a lot with this guitar. I record mostly lead stuff with it and it sounds great. It stays in tune pretty well I keep the bridge screwed in because I'm not much of a trem guy, but when I first got it it stayed in tune with some of the divebombs I did, it would be better if it was a floyd for more dynamics but what can ya do. the grover tuners are great along with the fine tuners. the ebony fretboard love it feels good. The active emgs they aren't good for cleans, but if you're looking at a guitar made by the angel of death himself you don't care about cleans. the emgs do sound very good distorted they're clear and don't get muddy. The neck on this guitar is freaking awesome its smooth and thin and easy to play, I don't like the painted neck though. Yep this is a good guitar you know pick it up and jam mane easy as that.

    Comments about ESP LTD JH-600 Jeff Hanneman Signature Series Electric Guitar:

    I could not beleive, that this guitar had ALL the specs I wanted, at such a great price. It was like it was desgned for me. This belongs in almost Any guitar players Arsenal! Especially loved the fretboard and whammy bar. I wrote a New song the minute it hit my hands. Then took it for a setup but that is ALL it needed, that it did not already have on it. Also I would recommend heavy strings for lots of whammy use and difference in tone. I might be married to Fender but ESP is sleeping with me now. LOL ENJOY

    Beautiful looking guitar. Great pickups. Well built. However, a couple of dislikes for me.
    The neck is too thin. Personal preference of course, but it needs to be thicker. Also, the volume pot is in always in the way when I am playing. Accidentally hitting it and turning it down. I have had lots of guitars over the years, and this is the only one I have ever experienced that problem. Kahler is good, but still does not stay in tune all the time. And the Cleartone strings they put on this guitar are terrible!!

    OK but could be better

    Comments about ESP LTD JH-600 Jeff Hanneman Signature Series Electric Guitar:

    I can only tell you of my experience. The Kahler is nice but it does not stay in tune unless you lock it. Also, one of the Kahler string tuning adjusters will just spin out by itself. I would rather it had an unfinished maple neck like the 80s Charvels did. If your hands get sweaty, they will stick to the painted finished neck. If you pull on the neck, you can hear the strings tighten and loosen. The EMG pick ups do give a really good and tight sound. I think ESP could do better than this. Maybe the JH signature model really is better quality but the price is silly.

    One Serious Piece of Machinery

    By Majikart-H4Fs0

    from Las Vegas,Nevada

    Comments about ESP LTD JH-600 Jeff Hanneman Signature Series Electric Guitar:

    for the past couple of years or so, I've been lusting after this guitar; I initially wanted the earlier 'Iron Eagle'(Named for the inlays)version,But after comparing the two,I've decided on the more recent model; Took me quite awhile to get it because they allways priced it just beyond what I'm comfortable paying for but I was able to get one. Like it says in the title, The EMG 81-85 actives combined with the alder body make it a serious piece of machinery,It sounds exactly like it looks, Dark,Wicked and Powerful; Plugged this beast into a couple of effects boards and pedals and came up with some of the most Powerful,Huge,heavy-as-Hell guitar tones I've heard in quite awhile.very comfortable to hold and play,Feels Solidly built and you guys are gonna love playing this guitar's neck; no problems with it whatsoever, Very Happy with this purchase; if you can afford it,Listen to that little WarLord inside you and get one,Neither one of you will be disappointed.

    Perfect guitar

    By ITTOAguitarist

    from Yorktown, VA

    Comments about ESP LTD JH-600 Jeff Hanneman Signature Series Electric Guitar:

    The first thing I noticed about this guitar was the beautiful neck-thru joint. The neck links perfectly to the body and allows you to comfortably reach every fret, which combined with the super fast neck, make this an amazingly playable guitar. The weight of the guitar is another thing that makes a huge difference, especially when playing live. The alder body is the perfect balance of tone and weight, and you don't die holding it. There is so much I could say about this guitar, but my favorite thing about it has to be the kahler bridge. It stays locked very well like a floyd, but moves ten times smoother, and if you're used to playing on a les paul style bridge, the rollers make you feel right at home. Buy this guitar if you have the money. You will not regret it at all.

    Forget buying the ESP model

    By ThrashMaster-XLixh

    from United States

    Comments about ESP LTD JH-600 Jeff Hanneman Signature Series Electric Guitar:

    Honestly, this is everything that I have ever wanted in a guitar. The tone is incredible, they Kahler is really nice. It is less maintenance even though it doesn't stay in tune as long as a Floyd Rose will.The neck is extremely comfortable, and I can honestly say that it is the best neck that I have ever played. It is perfect for soloing.I plugged this into a JSX and was immediately blown away. When I played "Raining Blood," it sounded identical to the record.I played many Jacksons and some Ibanez models, and this guitar simply destroyed them all. If you like metal, do yourself a favor and buy this guitar.

    Great guitar value for the $

    By Steven R Fisher

    from Salem. OR

    Comments about ESP LTD JH-600 Jeff Hanneman Signature Series Electric Guitar:

    Own it and never regret buying... You get so many extras especially the neck Thu body and the Kahler bridge which you can lock in fixed or have tremo as an the option. Changing strings is a breeze and no cutting as well as tuning. EMG pick ups are hot as the overall look. If your on a budget, this is the guitar for you....sooo many extra's for the money...

    Very nice

    By Otis B. Driftwood

    from Humboldt County, Ca.

    Comments about ESP LTD JH-600 Jeff Hanneman Signature Series Electric Guitar:

    This is a beautiful instrument. The finish is flawless, dagger inlay ebony fingerboard and white binding are stunning. Very easy to play. I can now play riffs I was unable to on my other guitar. The EMG pickups are hot. The neck through body creates endless sustain. The only complaint I have is that when the bridge is unlocked for the whammy bar it's hard to keep in tune. Maybe it's because I'm a novice but nevertheless it's hard to keep tuned. When the bridge is locked tuning is not a problem. I had the guitar professionaly set up after receiving it. The tech was amazed at how this instrument looked and played.
