Gary Holt of Slayer and Exodus is a legend in the world of thrash metal. His LTD Signature Series GH-600 is based on the Eclipse body style, and was designed by Gary himself to handle the most aggressive, fast, and powerful playing you can muster. Its tone is driven by a pair of red-covered EMG active pickups: the EMG 89R in the neck, with a coil splitter controlled by a volume knob pull switch, and the in-your-face EMG 81 in the bridge. The GH-600NT offers a set-thru neck design, with its three-piece mahogany neck going deep into the guitar's mahogany body cavity for terrific stability and smooth, unhampered access to the highest frets on its ebony fingerboard. This guitar's vibe is accentuated by red binding on the body, neck, and headstock contrasting its glossy Black finish. The GH-600NT includes a Floyd Rose tremolo and Grover tuners. Also available in a non-tremolo version with the GH-600NT.

But far the best guitar I’ve ever owned, the fit and finish is unbeatable. Better than any Gibson I’ve had . This is my 7th Ltd . You really can’t beat them for the price.

Thanks for sharing your experience!!

I got this guitar back in December. It's become one of my favorite guitars. Also the Customer Service team at ESP was very helpful. Thanks.

Carl N.

Glad you've been enjoying it!

Hi, please bring the NT back :( Hopefully, enough folks beg for it that they bring it back, even for a limited run. To me, it looks like the spacing between the pickups on the 600 is closer to the 256, the cheaper model, vs the 1000. I always struggle not to play on top of the front pickup, and I love the spacing on this model, I just have no need for a tremolo. I also like this model's 2 knobs vs the 3 on the 1000.... Maybe the WA-WARBIRD would be a better choice for me, or I look for a used 1000 and put in the GH signature pickups

Carl N.

Thanks for the insight Dan!

Doesn't NT mean "No Tremolo"?

Carl N.

This model is not an NT model but yes, depending on context NT will mean non-trem or neck thru

Where can I get the owners manual to this guitar? There wasn't one that came with my guitar I just received.
