    ESP LTD James Hetfield Truckster Signature Electric Guitar Product Description

    James Hetfield, one of the founding members of rock icons Metallica, has created his fifth signature guitar model. The Truckster is an ESP Signature Series guitar that is precisely based on Hetfield's personal custom ESP.

    The Truckster offers every minute detail of James' ESP, down to the 'aging' of the finish. ESP has done custom guitars for Metallica for over 15 years, and Metallica's guitars have been some of their most popular signature models. ESP is proud to offer the high level of quality James demanded for a guitar with his name attached.

    ESP's Truckster is a single-cutaway, solid body electric featuring a distinctive aged gray primer finish over its mahogany body and neck. The unique finish wear is precisely duplicated to match James Hetfield's personal instrument. The Truckster offers a set-neck construction, a 24.75 in. scale, and a rosewood fingerboard that features flag inlays with "LTD" at the 12th fret, and a unique cast aluminum raised logo tops each headstock.

    The Truckster puts an active EMG JH Het pickup set on board. These are controlled via two volume controls and one tone control, as well as a 3-way toggle (another 3-way toggle in the upper position is inactive, but ESP included it for perfect authenticity with Hetfield's actual instrument).

    The guitar's distinctive finish is complemented by satin chrome hardware, including its Sperzel locking tuners, and TonePros locking bridge w/stop tailpiece. White binding on the Truckster's body, neck and headstock and 22 extra-jumbo frets completes the detailed signature model.
