ESP KH OUIJA SPARKLE

LIMITED EDITION

$12,000
Limited to 30 guitars in each finish. AVAILABLE 2020
Crafted by hand with painstaking detail at the world-famous ESP Custom Shop in Japan, the new ESP KH Ouija™ is being offered with two new finishes: Purple Sparkle and Red Sparkle, limited to just 30 pieces of each finish worldwide. The two new Ouija™ finishes are based on Kirk’s personal one-of-a-kind custom guitars used on recent Metallica tours. It offers neck-thru-body construction, with a three-piece extra-thin U-shaped maple neck (with a natural gloss back of neck for playing speed and comfort). Its ebony fingerboard features 24 extra-jumbo Jescar frets (with a scalloped fingerboard for frets #17-24), and mother of pearl star and moon inlays perfect for the occult-oriented theme of this amazing guitar. Components include a Floyd Rose Original bridge, Gotoh locking tuners, and a set of EMG KH Bone Breaker pickups. Owners of the ESP KH Sparkle Ouija™ will receive a special Ouija™ case, a Certificate of Authenticity signed by Kirk Hammett, one 8x10 photo of KH with his Sparkle Ouija, and the factory build sheet from the ESP Custom Shop. AVAILABLE 2020.
