Kenneth Lawrence first les paul, which was originally ordered by Hetfield. Standard Les Paul body and neck but the headstock is Ken's original 3-by-3 headstock.
It features an exquisite mother of pearl dragon inlay on the body, and flames coming out of its mouth and continuing through the pickups and the fretboard.
