About the original ESP JH-1


This is the guitar James Hetfield played in the Whiskey in the Jar video. It is one of the earliest Hetfield signature guitars from ESP. You do not see these much and the production was very limited. It was a pretty basic guitar as well. It is a Flying V design with a mahogany body. It has a maple neck with a 22 fret rosewood fretboard. The headstock has a spear head shape which is pretty cool. The electronics are typical Hetfield with a set of active EMG pickups. It has an 81 in the bridge and a 60 in the neck. The controls are simple too with just a master volume and master tone control. The pickups are switched with a 3 way toggle. What really makes this guitar standout is the cool hot rod flames paintjob.



The original ESP JH-1 serie was constructed in an amount of 200 guitars (only the red flame guitars). The authenticity of the ESP JH-1 signature serie is provable by an individual numbering for each of the 200 original guitars which have been constructed.
Our Replicated ESP JH1 Red Hot Rod Flying V Custom Guitar
Look, the odds of a ESP JH-1 turning up for sale today are about zero. The closest we will ever get to owning one is with this once-in-a-lifetime Limited Edition guitar. Considering the fact that ESP is only building 200 of them, this is guaranteed to be a precious commodity somewhere down the road. But even you are lucky enough to find one, the price will be sky-high. Few people can afford it. What's a pity!



In the past years, many of our customers also talked about the guitars with us, and hope we can make replicas of it. So to realize their dreams, we launched the ESP JH-1 replicas. Our replicated ESP JH-1 is a fully-detailed reproduction of the original guitar—complete in its unmistakable look, sound, and feel.

About Pickups  
It is worth mentioning that the pickups we select are Wilkinson pickups. We have to admit that Wilkinson pickups are not as good as the original pickups. But they are more attractive in quality and price, saving much money for our customers. Most of our customers reflected the pickups are beyond their imagination, stable and reliable enough!



Of course, we also have original pickups- EMG 81/60, which are James Hetfield’s favorite pickups, and they can give you original James sound. But you need pay extra money.
