LTD KH DEMONOLOGY

BLACK W/ GRAPHIC

$1,249.00 with case

Metallica's Kirk Hammett is fascinated by the strange and macabre aspects of life, evidenced by his custom guitars featuring classic horror art and paranormal phenomena, most famously seen in his well-known Ouija guitars. The next step in his LTD Signature Series is the KH Demonology, a guitar powerful enough to summon the mightiest of dark forces. Over its black finish are a number of sigils, which are ancient symbols reputed to be imbued with magical power that allows the owner to summon demonic entities. Whether or not you use the KH Demonology as a portal to magical dimensions, it's an amazing musical instrument in its own right. The KH Demonology is a neck-thru-body design at 25.5" scale, with a comfortably contoured alder body, an extra-thin U-shaped three-piece maple neck, and a pau ferro fingerboard inlaid with Kirk's skull-and-crossbones motif, along with 24 extra-jumbo frets. A set of EMG Kirk Hammett Bone Breaker Signature pickups provide a range of tones that go from deep and rich to super aggressive with the flick of a toggle switch, and each pickup has its own volume control. The KH Demonology includes a Floyd Rose tremolo for expressive performance styles, and comes with a special Tombstone case, appropriate for this unearthly tool of musical mayhem.

When did you all add the EMG's with the green writing on them? I have the Demonology one with the 81 with the silver EMG and the one with the dull EMG I think it's the bone breaker

Hi Chris, We started using the new Bone Breakers signature pickups last year. It sounds like you have the 81/60 set which was used previously.

Hi, how long does it usually take to build this guitar? and If my local ESP dealer doesn't stock this guitar in its shop can I order this from that local dealer? sorry for the bad English I hope you get what I said. Thanks!

Todd B. ESP

Hi Arya, THis item is usually in stock or on order. If you are not in the US please check with your nearest distributor.

I have one for sale 

dylan b.

Hi, so I'm thinking about getting this guitar but I can't tell if it comes with emg bonebreakers or a set of 81's and 60's. The picture shows 81's and 60's, the description says that it is a set of 81's and 60's, but the specifications say it has bonebreakers. Very confusing. Can someone tell me what pickups it actually comes with?

Todd B. ESP

Hi Dylan, thanks for pointing out these discrepancies. We first released this model with 81/60, and after we had been producing this model, Kirk and EMG released the new Bone Breaker set so we have been working on switching over to the new pickups. We are now building these with Bone Breaker pickup set.  So the photo is old and needs to be updated. We will update the spec and photo asap.

Lior

Are you planing new ESP/LTD KH style?

I’m asking because I wanted to get the Ouija, and the local store just sold the last one...

Thanks!

Todd B. ESP

Hi Lior, no plans currently but sure is a possibility in the future.

Peter F.

Again I have one for sale.Never played

What is the finish like on the neck? Is it glossy, or more satin?

Todd B. ESP

Hi Ian, it's glossy

Ian Z.
