A James Hetfield Signature with his own EMG JH active pickups and a custom camo finish.

Handcrafted one-by-one at the ESP Custom Shop in Japan, the James Hetfield Signature Series Snakebyte features set-neck construction at 24.75" scale with a mahogany body, a thin “U”-shaped single-piece mahogany neck, ebony fingerboard and 22 extra-jumbo frets. It includes premier components such as a bone nut, Schaller straplocks, Sperzel locking tuners and a TonePros locking TOM bridge and tailpiece, as well as James' own EMG JH SET active pickups. The finish is based on a camouflage pattern created by high-performance hunting gear manufacturer KUIU, a design chosen by Hetfield. A portion of the proceeds from each Snakebyte Camo goes to Metallica’s All Within My Hands Foundation, a non-profit, philanthropic organization dedicated to creating sustainable communities by supporting workforce education, the fight against hunger and other critical local services. Comes with a matching hardshell case and certificate of authenticity.
