ESP LTD Iron Cross


Experience the ultimate heavy metal tone with the ESP LTD Iron Cross, an electric guitar with a menacing look and powerful sound.



The ESP LTD Iron Cross electric guitar is a guitar that is designed for metalheads and rock enthusiasts. It is a visually striking instrument that delivers amazing sound quality and performance.

The guitar is a signature model of James Hetfield of Metallica, designed and built with the collaboration of ESP and Hetfield himself. It’s an iconic design that’s become an essential component of Hetfield’s stage persona. He’s been seen playing this guitar on numerous occasions, both live and in the studio.

The guitar features a mahogany body and neck, with a rosewood fingerboard. It has a thin U-shaped neck profile and a 24.75-inch scale length, which makes it extremely playable and comfortable for performing complex riffs and solos. The guitar has a solid build and is crafted using high-quality materials, giving it excellent durability and resilience.

One of the most striking features of this guitar is its unique graphics. The Iron Cross graphic is placed at the center of the guitar body with gloss black finish. The guitar headstock also has the same graphic that looks amazing regardless of the angle you look at it. This design in contrast with the instrument’s finish, creates a visual impact that’s hard to miss.

The guitar has a set of EMG JH signature active pickups that deliver an aggressive and powerful tone. The pickups are designed to handle the high gain that’s required for heavy metal and hard rock, and they provide excellent sustain and clarity. The guitar features a three-way toggle switch and provides nothing but the cleanest and clearest tones.

Another significant feature of the guitar is its tune-o-matic bridge, which keeps the guitar in tune even when performing intense guitar playing. It also has a string-thru-body design, which enhances the guitar’s sustain, while the locking tuners make string changes easier, faster and hold tune perfectly.

In conclusion, the ESP LTD Iron Cross electric guitar is an ideal guitar for rock and metal enthusiasts who look to own a signature model that boasts incredible looks and amazing sound quality. Built by the best at ESP and refined by one of the most iconic guitarists of all time, the Iron Cross is a top-tier electric guitar that inspires without borders.
