There are few guitarists that have permeated the guitar community the way James Hetfield has. With a musical brain like he has coupled with that fucking right-hand, there’s no way that he hasn’t had an influence in SOME way on just about every single one of us.
Just this week ESP announced a limited run of baritone scale signature guitars called the “Snakebyte SE Baritone.” This guitar features a 27-inch scale, set neck, mahogany body, locking tuners, a TonePros locking TOM bridge and tailpiece, James Hetfield’s signature EMG JH “Het” Set active pickups, and it will be limited to 500 units. Also, I am told that it does NOT come with Hetfield’s right hand, but that could always be added as an option for the future.
No clue yet on when this fucker goes live yet, but when it does it looks like the cost will be around $1,400 USD. Head on over to the ESP website for more information on this awesome new guitar.
