Kirk Hammett talks about his signature ESP White Zombie electric guitar: "I first started using ESP Guitars way back in 1987. I kinda discovered them through my friend who had an endorsement with ESP at the time, and he told me that ESP was interested in working with me and would make me anything I wanted them to make, so I was really happy about that. So I got to go to the ESP factory in New York, and I said, ‘okay, this neck, put it on this body, with this pickup configuration, make it black, put skull inlays on it, and there.’ Eight months later, I had that guitar, and that's my Skully guitar that I have been playing forever and ever. This guitar, White Zombie, it’s another movie from the thirties that came out around the same time as The Mummy came out in 1932… I have this movie poster, I love movie posters of course had put it on a guitar. It fulfills all the things I need for a guitar - it sounds good, it looks good, and it plays good."more
