Metallica guitarist Kirk Hammett has announced a partnership with Gibson.
“It’s a really great and exciting time for me to be joining forces with Gibson,” Hammett says in a statement. “I look forward to achieving great things together in the future.”
To celebrate the partnership announcement, Hammett took part in a 20-minute interview with Gibson Brand President Cesar Gueikian, which is streaming now on YouTube.
Hammett is a longtime player of Gibson guitars — his signature axe is arguably his ’59 Les Paul Standard, nicknamed “Greeny.”
