ESP LTD Iron Cross SW – electric guitar review with “Top Gear” award

TopGuitar is proud to announce that the ESP LTD Iron Cross SW electric guitar was reviewed in the February issue of the magazine and received a “Top Gear” editors’ award this month. The product was delivered for review by ESP distributor in Poland, Sound Service.

Below are some excerpts from a successful review by gear department editor Mikolaj Sluzewski, which may serve as reasons for the award:

“One of the few signature guitars of Metallica’s James Hetfield offers us a set of tones to recreate original songs by this popular band, but is not limited to just that, being a fully professional studio and stage instrument.”

“The tested model is yet another example of how LTD guitars confirm their class in the segment of affordable import instruments by presenting great quality and attention to detail. Investing in this brand, you can be sure that the buy is worth your money.”

“ESP LTD Iron Cross SW proudly represents the Japanese original and offers a sonic equivalent of James Hetfield’s personal guitars. What is more important, it offers a totally professional sound which, in a live show situation, makes it impossible to distinguish if you are playing a guitar for a couple or a dozen of thousands.”

The latest issue of TopGuitar magazine is available across Poland in Empik and Ruch press retail networks, in the online store (, and as mobile version for tablets and smartphones using iOS ( or Android ( operating systems.
