James Hetfield says “if there was a guitar that changed the course of my history” it was this one – and it’s a cheap copy

Metallica frontman James Hetfield has announced the publication of a new book documenting his gear history, arriving in October. Titled Messengers: The Guitars Of James Hetfield (opens in new tab), it sees the metal icon share the stories behind his favorite instruments. 

While we’ll have to wait until October 17 for the full publication, there are some interesting tales to be had in the preview pages, including the story of the electric guitar Hetfield refers to as the ‘OGV’ – his original Electra Flying Wedge.
