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 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-600 offers a set-thru neck design, with its three-piece mahogany neck offering smooth, unhampered access to the highest frets on its Macassar ebony fingerboard. This guitar's vibe is accentuated by red binding on the body, neck, and headstock, contrasting its Black or Snow White finish. The GH-600 includes a Floyd Rose tremolo and Grover tuners.

Love this guitar sound and playability my only real complaint is the paint job is very fragile I was upgrading the strap pegs to Schaller strap locks which I use on all my guitars I drilled the hole because the Schaller strap lock screw is bigger while tightening the screw I hear a crack and a chip of paint flakes off this happened on both pegs the strap lock peg covers the chips but I'm worried it's going to keep chipping and flaking what ever your using is not sticking to the wood like real paint would. While I was doing the intonation of the guitar I had to remove the truss rod cover a couple of times to adjust the relief for the neck and a big round chip of paint flaked off where the screw hole is the truss rod cover does cover the chip but I can only imagine if I was to accidentally hit something with the headstock or body the paint would crack right off. Why would you make such a great guitar then chince out on the paint job. I've seen a used GH 600 for sale and right around the strap peg it had major paint damage and flaking I was wondering how would that happen but after my experiences with this guitar I now understand what happened I am terrified of this happening to my guitar I own the snow white version really sucks when you invest $1300 for a guitar and the paint flakes right off the first week of owning it.

Hi Michael,   Gad to hear you like the guitar and thanks for your feedback. The polyurethane paint we  and most all other manufacturers use is a catylized paint which makes it strong. However it should not be cracking or flaking on its own. Please email some photos and description to our customer service team at  If there is any way we can assist you we will do our best.


Keep us posted for a Hard Tail version in the future.

You got it Driver!
