    Jesus, dude. Are you on some sort of fishing expedition? It's not "wrong", just less common.

    Oh, and would it even br backwards anyway? The guitar body is for the audience, so it faces them. Position markers are more for the player, and from that perspective, they are facing the "right" way.

    Or, they are just pointing to the headstock, just like the stars further down, so that it's symmetrical. If they decide to have left-handed models available, they can just use the same fretboards, and it wouldn't be "backwards" to anyone.

    There are ways to rationalize the symbol, and its placement, other than "stupid american": aesthetic preferences, or manufacturing efficiency/cost savings....neither of which make it "wrong" or "backwards" or "unresearched".

    That only works when they are in groups: like Pilate, but a plurality. Pilates.

    itt: moron continuously conflates common celestial objects with specific flags/symbolism that makes no sense in the context of the guitar. It's not a fucking pro-Turkey or pro-Ottoman Empire guitar ffs. Suns, stars and moons have been common motifs throughout human history and especially in relation to mystical shit like a Ouija board.
    This is nothing like Hanneman being an edgelord wehraboo with ss runes and totenkopfs on his guitars.

    I hope they paid Hasbro for the rights, otherwise they're sending Suge Knight to collect.

    I'd have believed Hammett to be a wahhaddict.

    I reckon they are awesome but way overpriced. I am not a huge fan boy of the guy but will never understand all the hate this guy cops.
    I was sucked into buying a KH202 back in the day had to be the worst guitar I have ever owned, but looked cool & made me a legend in my own lunchtime:lame:

    Maybe he's pro Lucky Charms?

    Seriously though if I had a spare $12k laying around I would grab a purple ESP in a second

    As much as I like Metallica, Kirk playing live is just throwing mistakes all over, unfortunately. It's jarring when it happens during a slow sustained note like the intro lead to sanitarium or the harvester solo. It's like he's a guy who doesn't practice. I can't really think of a guitarist where I'm saying "Hey, Kirk is better than this dude". And all his memorable solos are 30 years old.

    I don't think he really practices. At least not any speedy lead stuff. I'm pretty sure he noodles around bluesy nonsense constantly. I'll give him the black album as the last time he made any decent shred. Bleeding Me was his last decent solo.

    Not to shitpost on Kirk, but I'm hoping they do a very radio friendly version of Sweet Home Chicago soon.

    I mean I don't hate. He's old as hell. He did his duty and now he can chill.
