Introducing the Limited-Edition LTD Metallica “Master of Puppets”
Believe it or not, it was thirty years ago, in spring 1986, that Metallica released what some people consider to be one of their greatest albums: Master of Puppets. In fact, earlier this year, the album was deemed "culturally, historically, or aesthetically significant" enough for preservation in the National Recording Registry by the United States Library of Congress, making it the only metal album to have received this honor. Master of Puppets was Metallica’s third album, and their first on a major label, and it included the well-known title track as well as favorites like “Battery”, “Welcome Home (Sanitarium)”, “Damage, Inc.”, and more.
As we’ve done with Metallica’s first two albums, we are proud to introduce a limited-edition LTD “Master of Puppets” Graphic Series guitar. Only 400 of these guitars will be made available worldwide, and you can bet that there is a long line of hardcore Metallica fans awaiting this particular commemorative guitar. Its graphic finish mimics the album’s iconic cover art. We anticipate that the LTD “Master of Puppets” guitar is going to be a highly sought-after collectible by players and fans alike.
