Based on the design of Hetfield’s 1970s Gibson Les Paul Custom, the original ESP James Hetfield Iron Cross is designed with new inlays. Features include the Eclipse body shape, distressed black with gold hardware, a gold racing stripe and a gold Iron Cross on the body. It was originally customized Hetfield himself in 1973 and appeared frequently in Hetfield’s concerts ever since. In 2009, ESP issued their new Iron Cross James Hetfield Signature model at the NAMM show with a price tag of $9,995. Up to now, ESP James Hetfield Iron Cross has still been one of Hetfield's tour guitars.

This guitar was not customized by James himself in 1973, nor has it been apart of concerts since then. He got it in the St. Anger days. And if he customized it himself in 1973 he would have been 10 years old.

Hi. I'd like to know, how much would it cost to build a Iron Cross guitar? ALso, is it possible to add a different finish on the Mark Hoppus bass?
