Plays just like Gibson with EMGs!

Comments about ESP James Hetfield Truckster LTD Electric Guitar:

I love this guitar! It is perfect for Metal/High-end distortion play. I also own a Gibson Les Paul Raw Power Limited Edition and this guitar is just like it, the only difference is that it is a 1/3 of the Gibson's weight and the price! Even though the guitar weights a 1/3 of a Gibson it does not give-up any tone and sounds just as solid! The EMG active pickups are the only way to go. The paint job is dope and looks very similar to the ESP version of this guitar. The Sperzel Locking Tuners will assure that the guitar will never go out of tune (even if you tune down like I do). A must have for any Metallica fan and the best looking Hetfield signature series yet! If you love Metallica, EMGs, and blowing the roof off your house, this is your guitar.

Comments about ESP James Hetfield Truckster LTD Electric Guitar:

This is an awesome guitar, great sound, great feel, great look! And it's customized by the killing Metallica Frontman James Hetfield!!! I understand for some it might be pricey, but for that guitar I would expect to pay more. Recommendations to any Medium and upward levels...

one awsome freakin guitar

Comments about ESP James Hetfield Truckster LTD Electric Guitar:

Th is the most expensive guitar I've ever owned. I own a lot of guitars, upwards as many as 10. They're mostly cheap guitars that I rebuilt with emgs pickups and other stuff. But I have to say this guitar blows them all away. The tone & the way this guitar plays is simply amazing. If you play alot of Metallica or a similar style of music, then this is all you need. The tone that comes from it (I run it through a Marshall 30 fx amp with a Behringer EQ pedal and the digitech death metal) allows you to literally get any distortion metal sound you want. This guitar comes with the action high - therefore, I recommend a professional set up or that you lower the bridge a bit and you should be fine. Oh and the sperzel tuners, I'll never have a guitar without them. They're just freaken awesome! This a great guitar built for a great musican (James Hetfield) - just awsome.
