What’s the fretboard radius on the Kh202? Mine just arrived today and I’d like to know how far the bottom of the strings should be from the 17th fret? Thank you.

Does anyone know the specific nut used on this guitar so I can replace it? I already tried the r3 and it wasn’t the correct one. 

Michael P.

R3 is for 43mm r2 is for 42mm nut

Richard B.

but that’s for a 10mm radius

Todd B. ESP

Hi, this nut should be available from Floyd Rose. Here is a link to their page for Special Series parts, you will need the R2 style nut.

If you need any more help please contact ESP Customer Service @

Are the pickups meant to replicate Hammett‘s signature sound but by using passive pickups instead of Active ones?

Todd B. ESP

Hi, these pickups are not meant to replicate Hammett's sound, for that you should check out the KH-602 which has the active EMG signature Bone Breaker set. However, for the price point of the KH-202, we used a pickup set that is geared to give you a moderately hot output that you can easily get to sound great.
