This is a 1995 ESP Custom Kirk Hammett Model. The serial number dates to being one of the first 1000 made of this guitar. For its age it is in very nice shape. It is a black guitar, so it has a lot of the light pick swirls, etc, that are typical of a guitar with a black finish, but no chips, dings, etc. It has a Schaller made Floyd Rose bridge. The pickups are the original EMGs. This guitar sounds and plays great. Comes with the original case.
