I'd assume it's pretty much the same with a bass, but the sustain on the guitars was incredible. The lead guitarist in our old band had one. They definitely do not have the same weight balance as other guitars!

Sustain and tone on this one is insane. Not an Alembic but still gets your attention, especially at 11...

Some smooth, buttery playing instruments you have there. I've always admired ESP's, but never owned one; same with PRS.

Thank you. I bought that Rick used in 1974 as a 16-year-old. I think it was a year old when I found it.

ESP makes unbelievably well playing and sounding instruments. I have another LTD not pictured here and it's a great player as well. But the ESP Carpenter is simply perfect.

I had the pleasure of playing a Kirk Hammett signature (unsure of the series) on a Marshall stack, with a pedal board (that to this day I'll never understand all the switches that were on it) back years ago. I was in love.......and unfortunately too broke to even fathom dropping the amount of cheese they wanted for that guitar. I wanted one since and just never pulled the trigger. Always thought the skull and cross bone fret inlays were the coolest thing ever. I didn't find it as buttery as something like an SG or a Les Paul, but it was without a doubt a tool of precision.
