KH-2 NECK THRU BODY
KH-2 NECK THRU BODY
As the lead guitarist of Metallica, the most successful metal band in history, Kirk Hammett needs no introduction. With the new KH-2 Neck Thru Body, Kirk’s ESP Signature Series takes a step up with this intensely powerful guitar that is built by hand, one at a time, by ESP’s master luthiers at our Custom Shop in Japan. The KH-2 NTB 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 NTB has a 305mm radius rosewood fingerboard with 24 extra-jumbo frets and Kirk's signature “skull and bones” inlays. 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 switch. Components on the KH-2 NTB include high-quality Gotoh tuners and a Floyd Rose Original bridge, and it comes with an ESP hard shell case and a certificate of authenticity. Available in Black finish.
I wanna just say that ESP and Ltd are the best guitars ever. I just got the Ltd Kh 30th anniversary Spider guitar. Best Ltd I've played yet. Kirk is my favorite guitarist. I used to own the ESP custom shop KH2 but unfortunately a few years ago I had to sell it when I went through some hardships. I bought it used for $2,400( I think new back then was around $3,000) . I was just on here to browse Kirk's ESP versions bcuz I want to maybe get the genuine ESP version again down the road, but the prices now just surprise the hell outta me. $5,000 to almost $7,000? For guitars that don't have that much to differentiate them from the Ltd versions. Especially just the standard plain Kh2. Sure they're handmade and whatnot. But nowadays the Ltd versions play and sound spectacular. I've played the Ltd Kh 602 and like I said used to own the ESP Kh2. Not a whole lot different. Don't think different tuners, strap locks, original floyd, different fingerboard radius, and minor things equate to a $4,000 dollar price difference. I understand inflation, but dang. Pretty much have to be one of those rich collectors that locks their guitars away and never plays them to get something like the Demenology ESP or the Purple Sparkle. And please make the Ouija models a standard production model. Not rare runs. Or his Dracula one.
