The New LTD KH Ouija Natural is a limited-edition model for the Kirk Hammett Signature Series and is the first Ouija™ guitar being made available to the public since 2010.
The demand for this guitar comes off the back of one of the most legendary guitars ever created with Kirk Hammett of Metallica and his original Ouija from the ESP Custom Shop. Using graphics from Hasbro’s popular spirit board game, the Ouija™ guitar (a trademark of Hasbro and is used with permission) has since only been produced in small batches, and its immediate popularity and limited availability made it an instant collector’s item.
Limited to just 666 pieces worldwide, the KH Ouija™ Natural offers a set of otherworldly features that put it in a class by itself. It includes a stunning quilted maple top with natural finish over its alder body, neck-thru-body construction, with a three-piece extra-thin U-shaped maple neck, a Macassar ebony fingerboard with 24 extra-jumbo frets and star and moon inlays that complement the occult-oriented theme of this amazing guitar. Components include a Floyd Rose bridge and a set of EMG 60 (neck) and EMG 81 (bridge) active pickups and also includes such details as black hardware and black binding on the body, neck and headstock.
Each limited edition LTD KH Ouija™ Natural features a serial number that reflects the order of production from #1 to #666, imparting collectible value along with great playability.
Here is what Matt Masciandaro, ESP president and CEO has to say about the guitar
“It was around 1990 that Metallica guitarist Kirk Hammett first approached us at ESP with the idea of a guitar that made use of graphic elements from the famous Ouija talking board. We later created the quilt maple KH Ouija Natural after being inspired by some wood-based designs of actual Ouija boards. We built a custom model for Kirk, who loved it. The Ouija has only been offered as a limited-edition model, and the KH Ouija Natural is also being created in small quantities to preserve its rarity and collectability”
The KH Ouija™ Natural is more than just a collectible museum piece; its features are designed for the top level of professional guitar performances. Includes special ESP Ouija™ case and Certificate of Authenticity.
