is there any guitars with the same body and almost around the same specs as this that isn't a kirk hammet one? i really like the style but don't like buying signaturesfor some reason lol, cheers

The Kirk models are based off our M style instruments.

I bought this guitar a week ago. This guitar is awesome, the neck is very comfortable. The EMG Bone breaker set is amazing. High quality craftmanship and playability. I absolutely love it!

Thank you ESP! 

Carl N.

Glad you are enjoying it


Is this a Korea or Indonesia model?

Carl N.



Whats that mean? So you buy a black kh 602 and you may receive a Korean or Indonesian by luck?

I recently purchased a used KH-502, It plays really well. I couldn't figure out exactly what pickups are in it from the factory, they are labeled EMG HZs and appear to be passive. I'd like to switch the pickups to an active model. Either the new Bone Breaker set or 60/81 set, please let me know your opinion. Is it possible to mount the battery in the control cavity or do you recommend installing a battery compartment?


Charles D.

Carl N.

That would be up to your preference, a battery should be able to fit within the electronics cavity, otherwise it wouldn't be difficult for a professional to install a compartment in another location for you.  Our product archive will have information on older instruments.
