30th Anniversary Edition of Kirk Hammett's iconic KH-3 Spider guitar.

In 1991, Kirk Hammett of Metallica came to ESP with a request for a single-cutaway version his KH-2 guitar. The original K3-H Spider was played by Hammett throughout the '90s on tours supporting the legendary Black Album. After spending a number of years on display at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, the original KH-3 was returned to ESP so it could be referenced for this 30th Anniversary Edition. Featuring a spider graphic designed by Metallica's graphic artist, Pushead, the LTD Kirk Hammett Signature Series 30th Anniversary Edition KH-3 Spider is a reissue of the original KH-3 model with a few upgrades. In addition to neck-thru-body construction, it comes with a Floyd Rose 1000 bridge and a fast, extra thin U-shaped neck with an ebony fingerboard which is scalloped from #17-24. This Kirk Hammett 30th Anniversary Edition KH-3 Spider is also equipped with Hammett's signature EMG Bonebreaker pickups for aggressive yet bright tone.
