Guitar Kirk Hammett Used In Metallica’s “One” Music Video Is Up For Auction

The guitar that Kirk Hammett used in Metallica’s music video for “One” is up for auction via Heritage Auctions. You can bid on that HERE.

The following was said in the product description:

“Kirk Hammett’s ESP 400 Series Natural Solid Body Electric Guitar, Serial # 03879 Used in the Metallica ‘One’ Music Video.

Released in early 1989, Metallica’s “One” video was the first video the metal band ever made. Having released three albums with no promotional videos accompanying them, having a five-minute video edit of their fourth album’s third single was a major deal back then. Shot in black and white and splicing footage and audio from the 1971 film Johnny Got His Gun, the “One” video was a staple on MTV. But it wasn’t just a Headbanger’s Ball staple – it was on MTV during the daytime in between videos from U2, Debbie Gibson, and Bon Jovi. It was an intense proclamation that showed Metallica was going to be a band to reckon with in the mainstream in the years to come.

Very clean and all-original ESP Strat-style guitar. Has a 1 & 11/16th width nut on a rosewood slab neck. Signed on the body in silver ink by Kirk Hammett and accompanied by a Certificate of Authenticity, also signed by Kirk Hammett. 7.90 lbs. Original hard case included. Condition: Excellent.”
