ESP Kirk Hammett series

A while ago, I did a collector’s article on Metallica lead guitarist Kirk Hammett’s signature 20th Anniversary ESP KH model, with a trans finished flame maple cap, which is no longer in production.

He has had an ESP signature series since 1988. He was one of the first few people to have a signature model with the company. His series currently has nine models, but only three will be covered here to show the different price points catered for by his series.
