The ESP LTD Signature James Hetfield Iron Cross Electric Guitar has a set neck with Thin-U contour, a scale length of 24.75" and Ebony fingerboard with high quality components, making it great value for money. The 22-fret Ebony fingerboard has a snappy, crisp attack with the density of Maple, but with more brittle grains. The stray overtones are absorbed into the oily pours, making the sound richer than that of a Maple fingerboard. The Mahogany neck will withstand the test of time and usage as it has less reaction from environmental changes than other hardwoods.
