Hetfield-Designed Pickups Roar Players on a mission to nail those heavy Metallica rhythm guitar sounds will appreciate the pickups loaded in the Snakebyte. The EMG JH "Het Set" pickups were designed in collaboration with Hetfield himself, to evoke the EMG pickups he's used for the past 30 years. The neck pickup includes ceramic poles and bobbins, while the bridge pickup uses steel pole pieces. The results for both are higher-output and fuller in the low end than the EMG 60/81 combo Hetfield previously used.
Solid Design Breeds Sustain The Snakebyte's all-mahogany body is carved into a wicked body shape familiar to anyone who's seen Metallica take the stage in recent years. Mahogany is a preferred tonewood for players seeking a naturally warm and full-bodied sound. The mahogany neck is set into the body for improved sustain, and is cut in a thin-U neck contour for speedy play. The 22 extra-jumbo fret ebony fretboard features a custom Snakebyte marker centered around the 12th fret.
Thrash Away While Staying in Tune To ensure the Snakebyte was ready for wild and aggressive players, ESP outfitted the guitar with high-end features like Sperzel locking tuners, and a TonePros locking Tune-O-Matic bridge and tailpiece. Though the hardtail bridge does not offer whammy bar potential, the locking bridge and tuners mean you can beat down on the low strings or make wide bends on the high strings without worrying about unintentional detuning. When you do want to take your sound down low, the locking mechanisms ensure you'll stay in the desired drop tuning without having to constantly readjust the keys.
