ESP LTD Snakebyte SW James Hetfield · Electric Guitar

Hetfield's preference for the Explorer form is well known. ESP, however, cannot copy the original form for legal reasons, so it was only a matter of time before ESP and Hetfield designed a modernised design for this guitar and brought it to the market as a signature model! With the Snakebyte they have managed to lend the Explorer new bite!
