This project snowballed while talking with Nate (deadlyweasle) and who knows how far it's going to go... I happened to have a white ESP Explorer and a Jackson RR (neither of which I play). But for now, it's just these two Flying V's. The original plan was to turn the Gibson V into Hetfield's Kill 'em All white Flying V, but then Nate and I exchanged some equipment and I became the proud owner of a 1976 Electra V in cherry red (the same as Hetfield's). With that in hand, the Gibson will become Kirk's black Flying V. That ESP might look good as Hetfield's "EET FUK" and the Jackson would need a few changes to resemble Hammetts, but for now I'm casually working on the two V's. This is the Electra when I got it. All painted up. I happened to have a set of 81/85's lying around, so I put them in. Hetfield supposedly had and SD Invader in there at some point, but I've always seen his guitar with EMG's. I started with the obvious markings first I've outlined the headstock break and will eventually get some glue on there. I also drew the little skull. I started in on the back too by referencing some pictures of the original guitar and outlining the area. So far so good... so what (oops, that's a Megadeth reference) This is the original. You can see that there's quite a bit more to do. Pictures of the Hammett will be uploaded soon.
