This limited edition Kirk Hammett is loaded with the very best. It's truly some kind of monster.

This limited edition ESP Kirk Hammett 20th Anniversary KH-20 guitar is based on the original guitar designed by the legendary Kirk Hammett of Metallica.

It features neck-thru-body construction. The neck is super strong, 3-piece maple with a thin U-shape for speed and comfort, enhanced by the 24 extra jumbo frets on the ebony fretboard.

The alder body sports a flame maple top, the striking grain shining from a gorgeous see-through finish. The great woods aren't just for looks, however. Alder provides great sustain and the maple heightens tone brightness and clarity.

Of course, it wouldn't do to start off with great tone and then lose it with the wrong pickups. That's why ESP has installed the highly sought-after EMG 81 Active pickup set in this Kirk Hammett Anniversary signature.

A genuine Floyd Rose tremolo system with locking nut combined with Sperzel tuners ensure you can dive bomb all night and keep your intonation intact.

Inlaid in the ebony fretboard are mother of pearl Skull & Bones with a special KH-20 Mirror Signature at the 12th fret.

Thousands of players have been inspired by Kirk Hammett's genre-defining abilities; ESP hopes to inspire these players to perform at their highest levels when they pick up their ESP electric guitars.

20th anniversary kirk hammett esp

By Ihavemoremoneythanyousohah

See all my reviews

I bought this guitar thinking it was going to be the most awesome guitar ever made and I was right. I was so impressed with this guitar, I had to buy another one so I could play it even when I am sitting on the crapper. The price was a little spendy but, for people like me it was no problem. I recommend this guitar to anyone who is rich and better than everyone else. I'll probably buy one more!

i gotta admit, this has to be the best guitar made and at a bargan price!!! It beats my squired bullets and my "pirate's of the carribean" esp sg!!!! It even kicks kirk hammetts a**!!! It even has it's own genuine kirk hammett,sweat stench. man nothing like sniffing those fingers afterwards. I STRONGLY recommend buying 2 at the same time just incase u lose one. anyway, they truly are a bargain.

not worth the money

By Prada3353

This is a great guitar, awesome for any metal or hard rock player, but unless you worship kirk hammet, theres really no reason to buy this. You can go to the ESP custom shop online and have your own ONE OF A KIND guitar made for half the price of this guitar, and with all the same specs.... bottom line: unless your a guitar enthusiast who loves rare guitars or worships kirk hammet, then dont buy this

this guitar is awesome. its a great guitar for bluegrass and acoustic folk music, which is what i use it for! the strings are kind of sharp, so i have to wear bandaids on my fingers when i play it though. over all its a good guitar at a bargain price.


From someone who's actually played it

I played one of these in a guitar shop on a trip to California. I also own an ESP M-II with EMGs in it. There is no difference other than the figured maple top and the ugly inlays. ESP already makes arguably the best mass-produced guitars on earth, but those normally cost about 1/5 as much as this one. No figured top, signed anything, or "certificate of authenticity" will make this guitar worth the cost.


all right
