New signature Kirk Hammett & “Dimebag” Darrell guitars announced

New signature Kirk Hammett and “Dimebag” Darrell guitars have been announced.

ESP Guitars will be releasing the LTD KH-3 Spider, a 30th anniversary edition of the axe the company created for the Metallica shredder in 1991. The original KH-3 had been on display at the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame, but was recently returned to ESP so they could update it for the 30th anniversary.

Dean Guitars, meanwhile, is reissuing its Dime Razorback Rust, which was created in honor of the late Pantera icon. The guitar had only previously been available as part of a limited U.S. custom run.

The LTD KH-3 Spider retails for $1,299, while the Dime Razorback Rust will set you back $1,349.
