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 Signature Series is the ESP 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 ESP 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 rosewood fingerboard inlaid with Kirk's skull-and-crossbones motif, along with 24 extra-jumbo frets (scalloped from 17-24), and a set of active EMG 60 (neck) and EMG 81 (bridge) pickups. The ESP KH Demonology includes a Floyd Rose Original tremolo for expressive performance styles, and comes with a special Tombstone case, appropriate for this unearthly tool of musical mayhem.

I have one in left handed, how rare are the lefties?

Carl N.

if you have any questions you may reach out to our customer service team at or 

Gabriel B.

Is it possible to be this with Seymour Duncan’s instead and have the overlapping pickups decals?

Carl N.

The pickups are actually painted to match the body, if you were to order a custom instrument they should be able to do this with duncan pickups as well

Elias A.

Is this a limited edition guitar?

Carl N.

This is a current production model 


In the description it says the pickups are EMG 60 & 81 but in the specs it says they are Bone Breaker. Which pickups does the guitar actually have?

Carl N.

Thanks for pointing that out, this will use Bone Breaker pickups
