This is the actual "Grynch" guitar owned by Evanescence guitarist John LeCompt and featured in the famous "My Immortal" music video...a song with over 1 BILLION STREAMS! That's Billion with a B. This guitar was also famously seen on stage with the band for their televised performance at the 2003 American Music Awards -see attached video! Evanescence needs no introduction. Having received 6 Grammy nominations & 2 wins, the album "Fallen" the guitar featured on and supported spent two years on the Billboard chart...one of only 8 albums in history to spend more than a year on the Billboard Top 50! Their songs have been on major Hollywood blockbuster movies like Daredevil, the Matrix video game and even the official theme for WWE wrestling! This guitar can also be seen on stage at the world famous Rock Am Ring festival appearances of the band to crowds of 150,000 fans!

Evanescence has sold over 25 million records and has defined a genre of music for over a decade. There is arguably no greater rock band that defined the era of the 2000's than Evanescence, and this is the greatest guitar they ever used on stage. The "Grynch" is a very valuable guitar in its own right, being the rare signature guitar of Metallica frontman James Hetfield. Only 260 of these were ever made, and this one (serial number G024) is more famous than Hetfield's own example. The guitar comes with full provenance including shipping documentation from John LeCompt, personal photos and a signed dedication on the Nintendo Fusion Tour poster which they headlined.
