Awesome Hetfield Signature

Ian294, 12.11.2015
I was pleasantly surprised when I got this Guitar.
Not usually a fan of active pickups I decided to give this a try after reading some reviews and was not disappointed.
All that Hetfield says about the pickups is definitely true.
Awesome power and also fantastic clean tones for an active pickup.
The build quality on this guitar is excellent throughout and I struggle to see how much better the ESP Custom shop version could possibly be!
Also just after buying the Guitar the price was dropped on the Thomann site and the awesome guys at Thomann gave me a ?200 credit note when I mentioned this. Fantastic customer service by Thomann as always! :-)

I modded the dummy 3 way pickup switch on mine by fitting an on off switch in place of the dummy switch and wiring it as a kill switch. The routing for the wires is already in place so it's a breeze to do and only requires temporarily unscrewing the pickup rings from the body to route 2 wires from the switch cavity through the pickup cavitys & onwards to the control cavity.

Amazing Guitar

07.04.2016
This is one amazing instrument. Almost perfect setup out of the box. A bit of a back bow that in combination with the very very small action gives you some fret buzz, but fixable in a few minutes.

Great sound, great build, awesome finish!
