ESP LTD Jeff Hanneman(Slayer) signature series. JH-200
I would be lying if I hate this guitar. This is an LTD guitar. I've played this guitar just for a few minutes and I would just say that it ''Slayed'' me. This guitar is Jeff Hanneman's signature series. It is the lowest line of his series.
However, it produce awesome sounds. It's a beast! It produces great heavy sounding and Slayer-ish sound. That characteristics just blew my ears off(in a good way). Other than that, the guitar does not use a normal floyd rose bridge. Instead it use Kahler tremolo bridge. This is the first time I use that kind of bridge. Surprisingly, it is waaaaayy better than those cheap-ass floyd rose. It stays in tune way better and great controls too!
This Kahler tremolo doesn't work like a usual tremolo. I takes time for me to get used to it. What I'm gonna say is, this guitar is a must for any Slayer fans to get their sound or it just suits heavy metal and thrash metal. Against all odds, this guitar has nice clean sound on the clean channel too!!
In conclusion, with a price tag of RM2999, it will make you think for quite a while. However, I think it is worth buying if you are searching for a great metal metal guitar. Here's the spec:
41mm Locking Nut
Extra Thin U Neck Contour
24 XJ Frets
Black Nickel Hardware
Kahler X-Trem Bridge
ESP LH-301 (B & N) p.u.
Finish: BLK, Digi-Camo Graphic
