It has a handle extra U screwed end in 4 points and is of Korean manufacturing. This is a guitar with 24 frets Floyd Rose Special. It is mounted in HH with 2 humbuckers ALH200 (active pickups). It has three knobs (two volume and one tone) and a micro switch 3 positions.
The handle is enjoyable to play. Floyd goes all without flinching. The balance of the guitar is very good. The jumbo frets are well finished and makes keeping score easy.
So why I do not put a 7 (just "Good"): for me, this is a very good guitar is really perfect with design, balance and everything else at the top level. But there is a BUT: it is made to be placed on a wall because if you play with too often, you'll want to make it shine (normal) and, therefore, pass him a cloth. And then you realize that the stickers from vintage way eventually steer. And suddenly, this beautiful guitar aged becomes a simple KH without the vintage side of the ESP KH2 from home. In short, a little ball so having a Hammett Signature without stickers that come with it. To summarize, this is a beautiful guitar collectors metal band family favorite: METALLICA. But play every day with a collector's anniversary edition, I'm not sure this is the right plan.
The sound is very good. With two active humbuckers ALH200 guy, I would have thought that the clean sounds were not super hot and no, it sounds perfectly. Saturated, it fucks granny in the park on a Sunday sunny afternoon. Well, to say that Hammet plays more in the trash-metal in the bluesy riffs.
But hey, she can be versatile when asked. Just let her know tactfully.
I tested on my guitar Randall RX100RG2.
I use it for 9 months and I am very satisfied. I had a small problem with Floyd creaky but since it was my first shovel with a Floyd Rose I did not know why I did it and if it was not because I could not maintain it. And no, actually, it was the power cord that was not properly screwed on the handle. So, I advise you to always re-check everything when you receive your guitar: screw, spring, positions of microphones, etc..
The only catch is that these stickers tend to block and therefore do not terrible on a guitar birthday is supposed to be a copy of one of the masterpieces of Kirk Hammet .. Ah, yet another mishap less dramatic for my taste: when I tried to open the plate to check the spring tension Floyd, I have some varnish and paint which is crossed out. After considering the state in which the types of LTD worked to fix it, it makes him no more harm than the original.
