    For the 1st question, go to Google.

    Robert Trujillo uses Bass Guitars (Electric, if you must specify)
    Kirk Hammett - Electric Guitars, and sometimes Acoustic guitars.

    Good luck with your lesssons!

    Metallica's gear:

    Also, don't waste money on expensive gear. Buying a Kirk Hammett signature model doesn't mean that you'll suddenly start to play like him.
    Learn how to play and use cheap guitars unless you have gigs that pay as much as Metallica's.

    Man, dont go fr expensive gears ryt frm d beggining...u'll waste evrything,u wont b able to explore the potential of the equipments... Start frm sum cheaper ones n if u think sum 3-4 yrs down the line, u've got hold of music, then invest fr the kind of music in which u develop intrest.... Its not s easy s its glamours to play guitar... U needa work rly hard on it... N playing hammet... myt take whole of yr lyftym....
    Plan out things... Start with an acoustic, u can get a dacent one fr 3k easily... Learn the basics... After 2 yrs, if u think u can play, get a cheap electric, i did the same, i got a chinese made fr 7k n a digitech rp80... get a decent amp-speaker thou (i made this mistake, got a stranger 20cube)... N after sum 1 yr or so try upgrading ur gear acording to ur taste.... Nw m trying to ugrade my equipments.. N i've got more intested in distortion-bass stuff, thou earlier i dreamt of playing leads more.... So yr taste myt change... Dont invest a lot b4 u learn...

    @ angle of sin...
    Seems lyk u got lots to spare, gimme sum, i myt use it intelligently... N who says u dont get a decent acoustic fr 3k?? its just dat u must b able to judge the instrument... If u cant n u can spare a lot, go fr ibanez or somthin lyk it...
    N ya, get the weeds, only if u can play with it... It 'just' sounds stylo...
