Signature Electric guitar with EMG HET Set pickups and TonePros Hardware , including case

Metallica Mastermind and chief riff smith James Hetfield has been using guitars from ESP Hetfield since 1988 and looks back on a number of successful Signature instruments since then. The LTD Iron ESP Cross Snow White is based on Hetfield's legendary, heavily modified "Iron Cross" electric Singlecut guitar, which is known from countless shows. Based on a classic mahogany construction and equipped with "HET EMG " Set pickups, it delivers the typical Metallica sound and sets strong visual accents.

ESP LTD Iron Cross Snow White James Hetfield Signature

With the EMG HET Set , the ESP LTD Iron Cross Snow White delivers the typical Hetfield sound, while its striking appearance sets accents on any stage.

ESP LTD Iron Cross in classic Singlecut construction

Following the classical Singlecut construction, the ESP LTD Iron Cross Snow White has a mahogany body with a massive maple top, while the glued neck is made of three pieces of mahogany and carries a Macassar Ebenholz fingerboard. This construction promises a rich sound with a crisp punch, which is the perfect basis for all kinds of Heavy sounds. The " Thin U" profile also ensures a high level of playing comfort, which allows even the most complex riffs to go loose.

Authentic Metallica sound thanks to EMG JH "HET Set

The sound conversion of the ESP LTD Iron Cross is done by the EMG JH "HET" Set , which was developed in close cooperation with James Hetfield. The pickups convince with their distinctive sound, which combines the enormous clarity of active pickups with the organic dynamics and passive Humbucker response. The neck pick-up delivers crystal clear, warm Clean sounds for sparkling arpeggios and singing solos, while the bridge pick-up makes every riff, even the most brute Distortion , audible with precise articulation and assertive mids.

High Hardware quality from TonePros and LTD

For the Hardware ESP LTD Iron Cross Snow White James Hetfield uses high quality ingredients. The TonePros T3BT Tune -O-Matic is used as a bridge, which can be locked on its bolt just like the one Tailpiece from the same house and thus contributes to the even sound development of the electric guitar. On the headstock, the strings are held by tuning Locking mechanisms LTD that guarantee high tuning stability and make string changing much easier.
