RecordsIf your house is besieged by vampires, and the only way to defeat them is through the power of rock, then perhaps you'd be interested in the Kirk Hammett ESP Nosferatu guitar. The Metallica guitarist, and horror aficionado, has announced the release of the special edition guitar, inspired by the famous 1920 silent vampire movie, of which there are just 13 in existence.

Should you happen to have $2,400 laying around, you can purchase your own Nosferatu guitar at Each guitar is individually numbered and will be signed by Hammett. It will also include a photo of Hammett with your actual guitar.

In between creating horror-themed guitars, Hammett is working with Metallica on recording the band's new album, their first since 2008's Death Magnetic.
