Australian Guitar - - Feature -

ESP can al­ways be re­lied on for cool, new vari­a­tions of their Me­tal­lica mod­els, and this year’s Kirk Ham­mett LTD KH-602 Pur­ple Sparkle is a stun­ner. Not only does it have a gor­geous met­alflake fin­ish, but the pick­ups are Kirk’s new EMG Bone Breaker hum­buck­ers with green lo­gos. ESP also un­veiled the pro­duc­tion ver­sion of the LTD Mul­tiscale, which was pre­viewed last year as a pro­to­type. And as al­ways, ESP’s booth is guarded by an in­tri­cately carved, skull-themed con­cept gui­tar – there’s a new one every year, and this year’s was the coolest yet (but in­cred­i­bly dif­fi­cult to snap pho­tos of be­hind its glass case).
