It was around 1990 that Metallica guitarist Kirk Hammett first approached us at ESP with the idea of a guitar that made use of graphic elements from the famous Ouija talking board. Back then, before the age of digital cameras and Internet communication, creating a guitar like this took some ingenuity. We got a Ouija board, and used a combination of a copy machine and a pair of scissors to properly position the art elements on the guitar’s body. We faxed the result to our ESP Custom Shop in Japan, and the rest is history: the Ouija guitar became one of the most well-known and coveted signature models in ESP history.
The first version of the guitar was a one-off custom model for Kirk’s use only. It wasn’t until 2010 that we negotiated the rights to sell the Ouija guitar to the public. Recently, we came across a collection of beautiful Ouija boards that were handcrafted from wood, and it inspired us to try a new version of the Ouija guitar with a quilted maple top. We had a prototype made and sent to it Kirk, who loved it.
With the new ESP Kirk Hammett Ouija Natural (25 pieces available worldwide) and the LTD KH Ouija Natural (666 pieces available worldwide), we now offer the Ouija once again. As another limited edition model, and a guitar with the level of desirability and rarity to make it an instant collector’s item, our advice for people who’d like to own the new Ouija Natural: get it today, because tomorrow may be too late.
