In this podcast shows host asked ‘How he got the six-string?’ and also Kirk Hammett gave an answer:
“You know, it’s really crazy. It really feels like this guitar came to me. I’ve been in London a couple of days when I got a phone call from a friend of mine who’s a guitar dealer, and he said, ‘I have a guitar for you to check out.”
After this conversation, Hammett answered:
“I said, ‘Okay, what’s the guitar?’; he said, ‘Greeny.’ I said, ‘Bro, I’m not interested in a guitar with a price tag of $2,000,000,’ and he said, ‘No, it’s all poppycock. It’s not $2,000,000, it’s not even $1,000,000; that’s all rumors. I said, ‘Hm, okay, maybe you should bring it over.’ and he brought it to my hotel room with an amazing amp, which didn’t help very much. It was an old Vox, sounded incredible. I had these ghost notes where you’re hearing other notes other than what you’re playing, it happens with old vintage stuff.”
