ESP LTD's Snakebyte is one of their Signature Series models for James Hetfield - the legendary rhythm guitarist and frontman of Metallica. Built to James' spec, it has a 24.75" scale length, mahogany body and 22-fret ebony fingerboard, with a Snake inlay at the 12th fret. The guitar also comes with an excellent set of high-gain EMG JH active pickups, delivering blazing tone that's befitting of metal's most revered rhythm guitarist. Plus, a Tonepros locking TOM bridge/tailpiece, LTD locking tuners, and extra jumbo frets give it a remarkably comfortable in-hand feel that's perfect for heavy playing styles. Includes a form fitted Snakebyte case.
Cosmetic Condition: Very good condition. The guitar has a few minor surface scratches on the body, which only show in direct light. It also has some slight finish cracks on the bass side of the neck pocket, but again, these are only finish cracks and don't go through to the wood. Plus, this LTD comes with fresh strings and low action, courtesy of Cream City Music's Signature Setup
