make / manufacturer: ESP LTD
model name / number: Kirk Hammett KH 503
I'm thinning my collection down a little. I've owned this one for about 4 years now but never play it.

It's kind of rare and hard to find this exact model without the graphic on the front. I just cleaned it up and tuned it. It's in good condition, mainly surface scratches, no tremolo bar, general aging, no back plate. No case. It's pretty heavy. Probably the heaviest guitar I've owned. Willing to travel within reason for the sale and meet at an agreed upon location, such as a . Cash only. Sold as is. Below is the description of what I could find based on this model/image design:

ESP LTD Kirk Hammett 503. HARD TO FIND!!

It is a great metal/rock guitar although I do play other styles and this guitar does very well when playing less overdriven types of music too.

Please note the guitar does not come with a case/gig bag, hence why the discounted price compared to same guitar selling elsewhere! It will be thoroughly packaged.

The KH503 is a Les Paul style guitar with a Floyd Rose floating bridge and 24 frets, part of the very successful Kirk Hammett range of guitars.

It features a neck-thru alder body and two EMG HZ humbucker pickups.

The neck is made of great quality maple with rosewood fingerboard with the Hammett signature spider inlays on the 12th fret (see image attached, I love those inlays). It features 24 extra jumbo frets, great for fast metal runs, delivering an all round very comfortable playing experience, given the action is just perfectly low.

The bridge is a Floyd Rose designed. Needless to say the ESP deluxe tuners keep this guitar in tune no matter how hard you make that whammy bar work!!

It is finished in beautiful satin black which actually makes it an elegant guitar to play regardless of the occasion.

The guitar is made in Korea to a very high standard as you can see in the pictures.This guitar is real quality!! I have never had any issues with it and has served me extremely well.
