Description: ESP Iron Cross ESPEDIT

The ESP Iron Cross James Hetfield signature guitar is a replica of the Hetfield’s model featured on the 2009 Death Magnetic tour with Metallica. ESP has only produced a limited quantity of these guitars. The ESP Iron Cross features a relic finish designed to look exactly like James Hetfield’s original customized 1973 ‘Iron Cross’ Gibson Les Paul.

The ESP Iron Cross features include a set-neck, 24.75” scale, mahogany body with maple cap, mahogany neck, 22 XJ EVO “Gold” Ni- Free alloy frets, distressed gold hardware that includes Sperzel locking tuners, Schaller straplocks, Tonepros Locking bridge & tailpiece, and special EMG 81 (B) / 60 (N) active pickups with distressed gold covers. It has an odd pickup switch configuration where the toggle in the upper position is inactive. The guitar’s finish is a highly distressed black with a gold racing stripe and a metal iron cross on the body top.

The ESP Iron Cross has a street price of $9999.00 and only a limited quantity are available.
