Before the collaboration between ESP and hetfield, Hetfields explorer type guitars were of Navigator band.


In the late nineteen-eighties, ESP crafted a lot of explorer guitars for Hetfield, including several popular guitars as raised middle finger inlayed EET FUK explorer, dots inlayed explorer having words A Year and a Half In the Life of Metallica; pt. 1. These kinds of James Hetfield White Explorer guitars had been named EX in the starting and later on known as MX-220ii.


Meaning of this name:
M- Metallica
X- Explorer
220- a common price tag
II- 2 pickups


MX-220II is a little bit shorter than the size (from the strap button at bottom to the point of the headstock), the angular is smoother somewhat, the space between the toggle switch to the knob is a little bit even closer compared to the existing explorer instruments. And it features a unique truss rod cover which is parallel to the nut and possesses two screws.

The further adjustment to MX-220II is utilizing a metal plate with four anchoring screws to fix the ports. The truss rod cover nevertheless comes with 2 anchoring screws, but is not parallel to nut any longer. No adjustment is made for the rest parts.


Later, during the advancement of the MX-220II, the ESP changed the structure again to bolt-on structure.


The next MX-220II is quite similar to Hetfields initial explorer. This James Hetfield White Explorer guitar is belonging to EXPCustom with outdated fashioned body shape and no serial number. Its stated that there's no serial number and round trademark around the headstock back of the MX-220II electric guitar.

Afterwards, the new style was named MX250 (later called MX-II, 250 means the price). The MX-250II is a bit lengthier than MX-220II, far more pointed at the tip. During early 1990's, ESP used parallel spherical ports. And in this James Hetfield White Explorer, the pickups switch is a little further away from the volume control and pickups.

You could ask for specific tuners and other optional variables, and you may customize this James Hetfield White Explorer guitar in USA, but they're recognized as "EXP custom" due to the fact the "MX" is selected for some other models.
