Aye. Warlocks with EMG 81s in the bridge were his main axes after the recording of Schizo or was it during the recording of Beneath the Remains all the way up to Chaos A.D where, alongside his Warlocks, he started using an SG and the band tuned down one whole step.
 
I hear he doesn't really take care of his guitars very well and B.C. Rich kind of got frustrated with him always trashing (thrashing) around his guitars.

i read an interview with hetfield back in the day where he said something to the effect of he always liked the look of the warlocks but the first time he played one he discovered they sounded like shit :redneck:

There's a clip on YouTube where Het is using a B.C. Rich in the early gloryhole era , probably on the black album tour.

Ahh yes, That white Jackson King V...I think Jackson was actually trying to get Het on their roster during that time. This was before or during the recording of puppets and I think it even predate's Mustaine's Jackson endorsement (I think Mustaine was still using his B.C. Rich on the first two Megadeth records).
 
Then the Justice era came. Scott Ian turned Kirk onto ESP and James soon followed. The rest is history.
