Kirk Hammett seems to be playing "Greeny" a lot live! Now Gibson needs to get with Hetfield.

    I personally love that Kirk bought this guitar and uses it on the road several songs a night. Plus he has his Gibson Flying V signature.

    Now I wish Gibson would get their head out of their ass and do something with Hetfield. He has such a large Gibson collection and loves Gibson guitars. Saw him playing a Gibson Explorer the other night live and it sounded awesome. Just had a punch and clarity his ESP didn't seem to offer IMO.

    He could join Slash....for famously playing a fake Gibson.

    True that V is not a real Gibson but his first real guitar was a Gibson SG his mother gave him the money to buy and have you ever seen his Gibson collection? He probably owns more Gibsons, including Original Bursts, than ESP's.

    Look at the rack behind him in that picture. They seem to be almost all Gibsons.

    That V is an Electra V not a fake Gibson, I think he added a Gibson truss rod cover at some point.

    Yeah, Hetfield has stated that for years. It's pretty common knowledge that V is not a real Gibson and a Electra he has had for years with the added Gibson truss rod cover. Thanks
