KH-2

BLACK

$2,999.00 with case

The ESP KH-2 is the main Signature Series guitar created by Kirk Hammett, lead guitarist of the world's most successful metal band in history, Metallica. Originally based on the ESP M-II, the guitar was then customized by Kirk to include the precise pickups and other components for Metallica's sound, and personalized with Kirk's skull-and-bones fingerboard inlays and signature on the headstock. The KH-2 is simply a bolt-on monster for shredding guitarists, with a comfortable alder body, extra-thin U-shaped maple neck, rosewood fingerboard with 24 extra-jumbo frets and Kirk's signature inlays, and high-end components including Gotoh tuners, a Floyd Rose Original bridge, and a set of EMG KH Bone Breaker Limited Edition pickups.. It's made by hand, one at a time, by luthiers at the ESP Custom Shop in Japan. Available in Black finish, the KH-2 comes with a premium hard shell case and a Certificate of Authenticity from ESP. Also available in a left-handed version.

I just recently acquired a mid 90's ESP KH2. The serial # is K-2691. Does anyone know when and where the guitar was made?

Todd B. ESP

Hi, For these types of questions it's best to email the info to our customer service team. But based on what you said it's a mid 90's or 90's guitar, so I don't think we'll be able to pin point the actual production year any better than that. IT would have been made in Japan.

I have a custom KH2 but my pickups say ESP instead of EMG. See. no. 61532. Would love to know why?

Todd B. ESP

Hi Agendra, Please contact our customer service department directly and provide them with your serial number and some detailed photos and they can help you out. Here is their email: customerservice@espguitars.com

You can also have a walk on the Forum sections, members would gently answer your question if you provide pictures of back of the headstock and/or neck plate, and control cavity if you can.
