I've never seen them with 3 single coils on a strat, but they do use a 2 humbuckers pointier looking strat, but im a lehoo-zehur (im referring to the ESP's)

I've seen Kirk use an ESP strat in the One video and in the San Diego performance during The Unforgiven. I've never seen them use Fenders, though, even though they most likely have purchased/acquired some.

Kirk used and ESP strat copy in the 'One' video.. I also believe he used another model with a weathered finish on the 'I Disappear' video.

James also used a Fender Telecaster in 'The Unforgiven II' video. Other than those, I don't know.

He uses a Sea Foam Green Strat for the live playing and recording of disappear, its a 83 japanese strat with all singl coils, he also uses a fender strat for alot of overdubing guitar work with his wah wah solos... This is legit Due to the fact that i saw a sweet ass behind the scenes at metallica haedquarters vid that was on a OLD fuse loaded, it was right around the release of MI:2

Don't forget about Bellz, I've seen him play a strat-type (I'm not sure its a real Fender or ESP or Fernandes) on Cliff 'Em All.

Kirk from around TBA era:
"I'm mostly using custom ESP neck through body Strats with two EMG humbuckers, plus an off-the-rack '89 Les Paul Custom, which sounds ****in' great. I'd like to play my gold top '52 Gibson ES-295 hollowbody through a pre-CBS Fender Deluxe for my solo on 'The Unforgiven.' I used Bob Rock's '71 blonde Les Paul for the solo on 'Sad But True,' because we tuned down to D and it didn't sound as fuzzy as the strats. So far, I haven't used my Gibson or Jackson Flying V's." Guitar Player, September 1991

But I have seen Kirk playing 3 single coils.
