In the nine-minute clip below, Premier Guitar‘s Jordan Wagner reviews ESP‘s James Hetfield Snakebyte guitar that is featured in the December 2011 issue of the magazine.
The James Hetfield Snakebyte is a brand new body style for ESP and LTD in 2011. It has a set-neck construction at 24.75″ scale, with a mahogany body and neck, and an ebony fingerboard with 22 XJ frets.
The Snakebyte comes with a bunch of high-end components, including Sperzel locking tuners, Schaller straplocks, a Tonepros locking bridge/tailpiece, and EMG 81 (bridge) / EMG 60 (neck) active pickups.
You can get the James Hetfield Snakebyte both in ESP and LTD versions, and both are available in two finishes: Black and Snow White, featuring a pearloid snake inlay on the fingerboard.
