I like the KH V Gibson did but the pricetag is just way to high for what the guitar is. You can buy a used black Gibson Flying V, add some EMG pickups, some tape and relic it some and have the same guitar for $1000. I can see the KH V being higher priced than a Standard Gibson Flying V but not even close to what Gibson is asking. I think that's why there seems to be little intrest in the guitar. No one wants to pay that type of money for a guitar that is easily replicated for 1/3rd of the price Gibson is asking.
I do hope that this brings Gibson and Hetfield back to the table though and hopefully they will do something unique and reasonably priced. I stil can't believe Gibson let the Iron Cross guitar get away.
If ESP sold the Iron Cross for $10k, God knows what Gibson would charge. Regular LP custom is over $3k for standard model and there's too many LP models as is. Give me Hetfield Signature Explorer for around $2,000. It can be done if they sold the 84 "reissue" for $1,500. Same model: Put in the EMG Het Set, Sperzel locking tuners, Tone Pros bridge, move the strap buttons. Available in White or Black. Done. You're welcome, Gibson.
I love Explorers.
