ESP LTD KH-602 Kirk Hammett Signature Electric Guitar

The ESP LTD KH-602 Kirk Hammett Signature Electric Guitar, Black is the LTD version of Kirk Hammett's ESP KH-2, offering the same high-quality design and tone at a more affordable price. Its solid alder body features a maple neck-though construction to offer improved sustain and resonance, while the alder tonewood produces an incredibly balanced tone. The two EMG pickups provide the signature guitar with its ferocious power, with an 81 in the bridge and 60 at the neck for incredible versatile, thunderous soundscapes. A Floyd rose locking tremolo system allows players to create a range of unique effects, expanding the tonal possibility and playing experience. Also featuring LTD tuners and rosewood fingerboard, the Kirk Hammett KH-602 Signature Guitar is perfect for both fans and musicians.

Solid Alder Body

Alder is favoured by most players for its incredibly balanced tone, offering the perfect dynamic range to suit most musical styles. The alder body is perfect for playing a wide range of musical styles, with its excellent sustain and resonance ensuring each note is heard. Its bright, sizzling highs, rounded lows, and beefy midrange sets up the foundation of the guitar’s overall tone, allowing players to achieve the perfect sounds for most playing styles. The body also features a contoured design, allowing the guitar to hug the player and deliver a comfortable performance.

Maple Neck-Through Construction

Featuring a 3-piece maple neck, the ESP LTD KH-602 produces beautifully bright tones, with searing highs and strong mids for a dynamic performance. Its ultra-thin U-shaped profile is perfect for speed demons, allowing players to easy reach across the entire fingerboard without losing any comfort. The neck-through construction provides an advanced sustain and resonance by optimising the maximum contact between the neck and body joint. This setup allows superior vibration transfer and sustainability, perfect for when you need notes to ring out for as long as possible.

EMG 81 & 60 Pickups

The Signature ESP LTD incorporates a set of powerful EMG 81 and 60 humbucking pickups, offering a thick, punchy tone when in the 81 bridge position and a warm, crisp tone in the 60 neck position. Constructed from close aperture coils and featuring ceramic magnets, the EMG humbuckers provide advanced detail and a truly meaty tone. EMG pickups are favoured by many professional musicians due to their unbeatable tone, active circuitry, high output and low noise.

Floyd Rose Tremolo & Locking Nut

Kirk Hammett's Signature Guitar features a Floyd Rose tremolo bridge and a locking nut system, providing a range of unique sounds and accents to enhance your sound. The bridge can create amazing dive bombs and pitch bends, while the locking nut ensures the guitar retains its original tuning and enhances tuning stability for the ultimate performance.
