Hold onto your hats ladies and gents, the new ESP LTD KH-OUIJA Kirk Hammett Purple Electric Guitar is here!
During their meteoric rise to stardom, Metallica's shred-master, Kirk Hammett, approached ESP with a request: he wanted a new custom-made instrument, which featured graphics from the popular board game Ouija.
A Fitting Tribute to One of Metal's Leading Guitarists
This guitar in particular has been one of the most popular amongst fans ever since, and each time ESP have released a small batch for the public to buy, they're immediately snapped up, making them instant collectors items.

Top Notch Construction
With its lightweight Alder body, extra-thin U-shaped maple neck, Macassar ebony fingerboard, and Floyd Rose bridge, this guitar is ready to shake the very foundations of the ethereal plane.
As you'd expect with a guitar bearing Kirk Hammett's name, this KH-OUIJA is built for high performance playing styles, and will feel comfortable in your hands at whatever speed you choose to play.
Not only that, but it looks simply fantastic whilst doing it.
Housing a pair of high-powered, active, EMG Bonebreaker pickups in both the bridge and neck positions, the ESP Limited Edition LTD Kirk Hammett Signature Ouija is perfect for fast-playstyles, and produces a sound that can be best described as "blistering".
These pickups have been developed to deliver that famous KH tone in a nice, crisp package which reduces the need for sacrificing gain for a clean sound. Simply adjust the guitar's controls accordingly, and the combination of Ceramic and Alnico 5 magnets will do the rest for you.
Floyd Rose Bridge
For more than 40 years now, Floyd Rose bridges have been the go-to option for metal guitarists the world over.
When combined with a locking nut on the guitar neck, this excellent feat of engineering allows you to add as much character to your playing as you wish, without compromising the guitar's tuning stability.
Whether you wish to add a slight shimmer to your sound, or even go all-out with huge divebombs, this bridge allows you to do so safe in the knowledge that you won't have to stop and re-tune afterwards.
As stated above, there's only a very limited number of these guitars being made available across the world, so not only would you be buying an excellent, premium-quality instrument, but you'd also be buying a real collector's piece. Don't hesitate to get your order in though, as they're already selling fast, and once they're gone they're gone!
