The "Snakebite", a prototype James wanted to have together in time for the Big Four to try it out.

Ew Metallica, Id honestly rather have Dave Mustaines Dean, I hate dean but id rather have a guitar used by a player I actually like VS a player in a band I absolutely despise. Then again no thanks to either :-) Maybe Hamster can give me some "awesome" :roll: Vibrato "Interesting" :smt011 Solos to make my ears bleed, and then put me to sleep. I really wish these two would have went to Dean, and Mustaine would have kept ESP, and ways that guitar reminds me of an Ibanez

Plenty of up close pics of Metallica from the auckland concert at this review here. It wont let me link directly but there is a pretty detailed picture of the new explorer within the slideshot.

Not sure do I like it or not... The white one looks better. Any closeups from the inlay on the twelve fret?

Any possibility that this would be the new Hetfield sig? Shane? Any thoughts?
