Overview

A limited edition and rapid solution to getting Kirk's tone.

Kirk Hammett has been ripping up solos for Metallica for over 30 years. Riffs on Ride the Lighting, Master of Puppets, and the Black Album are a must-learn for all rock guitarists. For Kirk, his tone starts with EMG pickups.

“Metallica’s crunch sound is often cleaner than people expect”, says Kirk. “My taste in tone has definitely changed over the years. I don’t like to use as much distortion these days—I prefer my tone to be nice and crisp”. The Kirk Hammett Bone Breaker set is the result of taking the success of Metallica tone and adding some new elements without sacrificing gain for clean or vice-versa. By making slight pre-amp adjustments and combining alnico 5 and ceramic magnets the perfect tone beast was created.

The Bone Breaker set consist of the BB-B Ceramic bridge and the BB-N Alnico 5 neck pickups. Being bar magnets they can go in either position and fit in standard and Floyd spaced guitars without any loss of tone. No matter if you are looking for rhythm or lead tone, the Kirk Hammett Bone Breaker set offers crisp crushing leads or smooth rounded rhythm tone at the flip of the selector switch.

These will not last. Order today.
