ESP GUITARS Announces JAMES HETFIELD Signature Series LTD Snakebyte SE Baritone Model

ESP Guitars has announced a new special edition James Hetfield Signature Series guitar model. The LTD Snakebyte SE Baritone is a new collaboration by James Hetfield and ESP. It is a replica of the original model currently played by James on METALLICA's "WorldWired" tour. The new model will be available soon through ESP dealers and international distributors.

The LTD Snakebyte SE Baritone release is limited to just 500 pieces worldwide. It offers set-neck construction at 27" scale, allowing for an extended lower range than a standard scale guitar, and comes in standard baritone tuning of B-E-A-D-F#-B. The LTD Snakebyte SE Baritone employs a mahogany body with a distinctive highly-figured quilted maple top in See Thru Purple Sunburst finish, paired to a comfortable thin U-shaped 3-piece mahogany neck with Macassar ebony fingerboard.

High-quality hardware on the LTD Snakebyte SE Baritone includes LTD locking tuners, a TonePros locking TOM bridge and tailpiece, and James Hetfield's signature EMG JH "Het" Set active pickups. This guitar also includes a hardshell ESP case and a Certificate of Authenticity.

The new model joins other available guitars in the ESP/LTD Signature Series, which are instruments based on the custom guitars that some of the world's most acclaimed and respected musicians play in the studio and on tour.
