ESP KH-2 – Purple Sparkle

Serial Number: E4701222
Weight: 8 lbs 4 oz

Crafted by hand, one at a time by the master luthiers at the ESP Custom Shop in Japan, the ESP KH-2 Purple Sparkle is the latest update to the Signature Series of Kirk Hammett, lead guitarist of the world’s most successful metal band in history, Metallica. The KH-2 Purple Sparkle is more than just a killer new finish; its specs make it a whole new guitar. It offers neck-thru-body construction at 25.5” scale with a comfortable alder body and an extra thin U-shaped 3-piece maple neck with a great-feeling natural gloss finish on the back of the neck. The KH-2 Purple Sparkle has a 305mm radius rosewood fingerboard with 24 extra-jumbo frets and Kirk’s signature “skull and bones” inlays, and the fingerboard is scalloped from frets 17-24. This guitar’s sound is powered by a pair of EMG KH Bone Breaker Limited Edition pickups. Designed to bring out the best in Kirk’s tone, the pickups offer crisp leads or smooth, rounded rhythm tones at a flick of its three-way selector. Components on the KH-2 Purple Sparkle include high-quality Gotoh tuners and a Floyd Rose Original bridge, and it comes with an ESP hard shell case.
