The ESP LVULTUREBLKS LTD Vulture is the latest and greatest signature model from Metallica's James Hetfield.

The Vulture boasts many of the same features as his other models, including TonePros hardware, mahogany construction, and a 24.75" scale length. But its aggressively shaped body and identifiable headstock shape make this guitar one of the most lethal. And it is loaded with EMG active Het-Set humbucking pickups for high output with punchy dynamics. This LTD Vulture is built from the ground up for heavy metal.

Modern take on a popular body style
Hetfield's love of V-shaped solidbody electric guitars goes all the way back to the beginning of Metallica, and he's been playing them off and on ever since. The ESP LTD Vulture solidbody electric guitar brings this love to the ESP production line. The Vulture sports hooked wing ends and an identifiable headstock design. The body features a forearm comfort contour that adds to the guitar's intense lines while being a pleasure to play.

Hetfield-specified construction
There is a consistency throughout all of James Hetfield's signature ESP LTD solidbody electric guitars. And the Vulture is no different. The body and neck are carved from warm and sustain-rich mahogany. A black ebony fretboard adds to the instrument's stealth looks while helping harmonics to jump out of the guitar. A combination of top-quality TonePros hardware and LTD locking machine heads ensure your performances are in tune, night after night. And the Vulture's 24.75" scale length is comfortable while keeping string bending effortless.

James Hetfield signature electronics
The engine that drives the ESP LTD Vulture James Hetfield signature solidbody electric guitar is the EMG active Het-Set. These humbucking pickups are based on the EMG active 81 and 85 humbuckers Hetfield used for years. But these pickups are voiced for a more dynamic response, one that will bring to mind a fantastic set of passive pickups. And though they retain the massive output Hetfield requires, they are fully capable of the shimmering clean tones that he is equally well known for.
