I like the iron cross one, but I could do with out the iron cross, and where it has Hetfields signature...actually really the only thing I like about it is that it's all worn out, I like the relic look...I think I'd get rid of that twelfth fret inlay too, and I don't think I'd want anything to do with the other two guitars at all though. EDIT: also I hate active pickups, I'd have to get rid of those, and where it says "UM73" that would have to go.

I don't like relics! Buy new and break it in yourself I say! All that exposed wood will only help the guitar absorb moisture.
Moving on.....

Its just that i would not want to play a copy of a different guitarists guitar.
I would much rather buy a guitar upgrade it and add my own dirt to it.
Sigs have the artists specs and usually are set up for the feel they want.
But yes your right not all sigs are crap just looks like this one is.

Oh is that what that is, I thought it was a coil tap switch. I'm going to have to say he likes to have the option of either active or inactive pickups.

That option doesn't exist... He meant, why is there one pickup toggle, and one toggle that does nothing, as I don't think it's a coiltap, either...

edit: Wait, it even says so. 'NOTE: Toggle in Upper Position Inactive'

It exists, just not in any marketed guitar.
I Know a few members have done it.
regardless, this guitar doesn't interest me in the least.
I always liked Hetfield's white Explorer the best. Wasn't any sig guitar, just a classy looking explorer.

"However," replied the universe,

A sense of obligation."

Kirks sig is pretty damn fine tho
The Mitch Clem formula
1)make jokes about rancid and NOFX (as if they dont already make fun of themselves)
2)make obvious punk puns, possibly related to food
3)make fun of Rancid and NOFX again
4)??????
5)PROFIT (and an army of internet fanboys)

Black superstrat + EMGs + Floyd Rose = 1000$, maybe?

That with Hammet's signature on it = 4657824692$


It is not. Fucking. Fine. It's a ripoff, done for Metallica fans and n00bs the world over. There is nothing interesting, good or different about it, except for the occasional crappy payjob you pay an extra 5000$ for.

I actually prefer his current Musicman ones.
