James Hetfield Approves of This Axe

You can’t deny the sweet looks and epic tone of the ESP LTD James Hetfield Iron Cross SW Signature guitar! This axe captures the angst of Metallica’s legendary frontman with Iron Cross artwork and custom inlays. And it’s got the sound to match the looks, featuring a hot pair of EMG JH humbuckers that are ready to make your amplifier roar. We’ve helped rock guitarists achieve aggressive tones here for decades, and we can easily say the ESP LTD James Hetfield Iron Cross SW Signature guitar is primed for impressive performance.

Audacious tonal tenacity from EMG JH signature humbucking pickups

James Hetfield requested a set of sleek-looking active pickups from EMG. He wanted his pickups to have the clarity and punch of passive pickups while still retaining the classic EMG character, and they delivered with the JH Het Set you’ll find on the LTD James Hetfield Iron Cross SW Signature guitar. The neck pickup uses ceramic pole pieces for a fuller attack, higher output, and a beefier low end. The bridge pickup uses steel pole pieces for a tighter attack and cleaner lows. Between the two, you’ve got a world of tone to explore with the ESP LTD James Hetfield Iron Cross SW Signature guitar.

Designed for furious fretwork

Whether you’re a Metallica fan or not, you’ll appreciate the ultra-fast feel of the LTD James Hetfield Iron Cross SW Signature guitar. The thin “U”-shaped neck profile allows for fast runs up and down the fretboard while the extra-jumbo frets make it easy to hit every note with precision. And with premium components like the TonePros locking TOM bridge and locking LTD tuners, the LTD James Hetfield Iron Cross SW Signature guitar will keep up with your most demanding performances.
