LTD by ESP Guitars EXP-200 Explorer
Used / Vintage 1997 Made in Japan!
Metallica James Hetfield signature style guitar
Just in on trade! This used / vintage EXP-200 from ESP is a super killer guitar! It is a very early production example made in Japan. Note the rare double dot inlays @ the 12th fret. Later in the production life of these instruments that was changed, and more recently produced LTD models are made in Korea or other Asian countries. The craftsmanship on this beast is outstanding, as with most Japanese production guitars. The body and neck are Maple, the fingerboard is Rosewood. The serial number on the fingerboard is 43442. The neck heel itself is stamped 97829. Pickups are EMG. The tone is absolutely killer. Rich, resonant, crisp and clear. The condition is very nice. There are signs of use – some dings, dents, cosmetic marks and such, but no serious issues, damage or repairs.
Fresh pro setup with fret level was just performed. Like all our used / vintage gear this has been tested for functionality and priced to move. Sold as-is. What you see is what you get, EXCEPT the original hard shell case, which IS INCLUDED but may not be pictured due to photo limits (depending on where you are viewing this listing).
