About the original James Hetfield Flying V


This James Hetfield Flying V is the guitar James Hetfield played in the Whiskey in the Jar video. It is one of the earliest Hetfield signature guitars from ESP. You do not see these much and the production was very limited. It was a pretty basic guitar as well. It is a Flying V design with a mahogany body. It has a maple neck with a 22 fret rosewood fretboard. The headstock has a spear head shape which is pretty cool. The electronics are typical Hetfield with a set of active EMG pickups. It has an 81 in the bridge and a 60 in the neck. The controls are simple too with just a master volume and master tone control. The pickups are switched with a 3 way toggle. What really makes this guitar standout is the cool hot rod flames paintjob.


The original ESP JH-1 Flying V serie was constructed in an amount of 200 guitars (only the red flame guitars). The authenticity of the ESP JH-1 signature serie is provable by an individual numbering for each of the 200 original guitars which have been constructed.

About Pickups  
It is worth mentioning that the pickups we select are Wilkinson pickups. We have to admit that Wilkinson pickups are not as good as the original pickups. But they are more attractive in quality and price, saving much money for our customers. Most of our customers reflected the pickups are beyond their imagination, stable and reliable enough!



Of course, we also have original pickups- EMG 81/60, which are James Hetfield’s favorite pickups, and they can give you original James sound. But you need pay extra money.

Can the entire neck be located a little further out? In these pictures the neck appears to be very deep in the body, hindering upper fret access.
