ESP is bringing back the Kirk Hammett’s KH-3 Custom Eclipse Spider 13 model! With only a virtual NAMM Show this year, ESP has lined up several exciting reveals, including this Metallica model. This is one we’re definitely looking forward to…
ESP Kirk Hammett KH-3 Custom Eclipse Spider 13
ESP has already premiered a few of its 2021 models, including the ice cool Arctic White models we covered last month. But perhaps even more exciting is this new version of the popular Kirk Hammett KH-3 Custom Eclipse Spider 13 signature guitar. This somewhat iconic guitar was used exclusively during Metallica’s 1992 tour in support of their Black Album, so many fans of the band will instantly recognise this model.
With its distinctive spider and number 13 decals designed by punk, metal, and skate artist Brian “Pushead” Schroeder, this Floyd Rose-equipped model features a set of Kirk’s favourite EMG pickups. Perfect for copping those iconic tones!
The ESP live stream will take place between 11-13 January, providing more official details. If you haven’t seen the KH-3 Custom Eclipse Spider 13, get a glimpse of it in the official ESP teaser preview video below. The Metallica Black Album was such a huge hit for the band that this model will appeal to players and fans alike. I can see it being super popular.
