Kirk Hammet

What do you think is better a Kh 602, or the signature guitar for $1600? Besides the fact that the neck is bolted on on the signature, is there a real difference that you can tell?

I know that there are little logo differences, but I meant if the relic plays a lot better, and is better made than the ltd model

LTD's have crappy trems. If you want one id go for the Les paul shaped one and(Neck through and still 500 bucks) get a new tremolo for it.

Aren't the pickups different too? EMG vs. EMG-HZ? Not sure, I'll have to re-check the site.

Nope, I'm wrong, don't mind me

I think that the tremolo is the same on the esp and the ltd, I know its not as good as a lo pro, but it isn't horrible

The relic is $3000, the KH-2 is $1699, the relic is an amazing guitar, KH-2 is just a decent bolt on guitar with EMGs, i would go with a regular ESP MIII or MII, u can probably get one pretty cheap from ebay.

Another vote for MII.
You can get a new one from ESP now, just have to ask in the store.
Stay away from anything with LTD logo and a price over $500.

Also the KH2 can be ordered in tru-neck for extra $200-300
