Handcrafted one by one at the ESP Custom Shop in Japan, the James Hetfield ESP Signature Series Snakebyte features set-neck construction at 24.75" scale with a mahogany body, a thin U-shaped single-piece mahogany neck, ebony fingerboard, and 22 extra-jumbo frets. This guitar includes premier components such as a bone nut, ESP Strap Locks, Sperzel locking tuners, and a TonePros locking TOM bridge and tailpiece, as well as James' own EMG JH SET active pickups. The Snakebyte Camo is based on a camouflage pattern created by high-performance hunting gear manufacturer KUIU, a design chosen by Hetfield. The ESP Snakebyte Camo includes a matching hardshell case and comes with a Certificate of Authenticity from ESP. A portion of the proceeds from each Snakebyte Camo goes to Metallica’s All Within My Hands Foundation, a non-profit, philanthropic organization dedicated to creating sustainable communities by supporting workforce education, the fight against hunger, and other critical local services.
