KH-2

PURPLE SPARKLE

$4,599.00 with case

Crafted by hand, one at a time by the master luthiers at the ESP Custom Shop in Japan, the ESP KH-2 Purple Sparkle is the latest update to the Signature Series of Kirk Hammett, lead guitarist of the world's most successful metal band in history, Metallica. The KH-2 Purple Sparkle is more than just a killer new finish; its specs make it a whole new guitar. It offers neck-thru-body construction at 25.5” scale with a comfortable alder body and an extra thin U-shaped 3-piece maple neck with a great-feeling natural gloss finish on the back of the neck. The KH-2 Purple Sparkle has a 305mm radius rosewood fingerboard with 24 extra-jumbo frets and Kirk's signature “skull and bones” inlays, and the fingerboard is scalloped from frets 17-24. This guitar’s sound is powered by a pair of EMG KH Bone Breaker Limited Edition pickups. Designed to bring out the best in Kirk’s tone, the pickups offer crisp leads or smooth, rounded rhythm tones at a flick of its three-way selector. Components on the KH-2 Purple Sparkle include high-quality Gotoh tuners and a Floyd Rose Original bridge, and it comes with an ESP hard shell case.

When is it going to be possible to order guitars off of this website again?

Carl N.

ESP’s sales and customer service departments are fully operational during the current crisis. Statewide orders have temporarily restricted our warehouse operations, which also impacts ShopESP. But many of our authorized dealers are stocked with our products and continue to fulfill orders. Please check our dealer lists
Our customer support staff is available to assist you at customerservice@espguitars.com

Blake R.

Does he have a sparkle ouija now? If so will they ever be available to public? 

Todd B. ESP

Hi Blake, Yes we made Kirk a red and purple sparkle version with the Ouija graphics. It's possible we may release a similar version in the future.

Nick K.

Is there a left-handed version of this guitar?

Todd B. ESP

Hi Nick, We do not stock and sell this model but it could be built to order. If you are interested then you should discuss with an authorized ESP dealer.
