ESP Hetfield Snakebytes - Huzzah!

Post by guitarsatbmusic » Fri Apr 01, 2011 7:19 pm

Had both white and black, but the white went straight away after it landed in Melbourne to a Mlebourne-ite, a very happy one at that :)
So, pics of the black only hombres 8-)

Dig it :) With regular dots instead of the snake inlay, it would look absolutely awsome :)

Would look killer without that strange inlay...

Looks good. I prefer the white personally but the Black is still cool!

Maybe it should have been the snake logo from the Black album cover. Isn't it the 20th Anniversary of the Black Album this year? Or was it last year? :smt102

I'd love ESP to come out with a Ken Lawrence style explorer for James.
That's the axe I think of when I think of him.
Oh and the Jagermeister explorer with the deer graphics.

Wouldn't mind taking the white one for a spin sometime to see how well they play.

That Ebony board looks slicker then whale shit in an ice flow. Frets look amazingly polished. Nice job ESP.

This has become my dream purchase.

Just looking at the stats of tge ltd vs esp, there dosent seem to be a big difference except strap locks.

And on the bmusic website the esp dosent even have the het set.

As i am only a bedroom warrior is it worth ponying up the dough for the esp.

Help!
I want one of these, give it to me!!!!!!!!!

The ESP uses better materials, craftmanship, and has the hard case. But certainly, the LTD is high, high quality. The Het Sets I think we may have laded now in the ESPs, not until recently, no, they were the regular EMG stock.
