Founder of legendary New Orleans-based extreme metal band Goatwhore, Sammy Duet is renowned for creating speedy, tight rhythms and insanely brutal riffs. His signature guitar, the LTD SD-2, is based on Sammy’s own ESP Custom Shop model, made famous by its identifiable Random Star shape. The SD-2 offers sturdy neck-thru-body construction at 24.75” scale for fast, easy access to the highest frets. This mahogany body, 3-piece mahogany neck guitar has a bound Macassar ebony fingerboard with 24 extra-jumbo stainless steel frets, diamond-shaped mother-of-pearl inlays, and glow-in-the-dark side markers. Components on the LTD SD-2 include a Floyd Rose 1000 SE double-locking tremolo with stainless steel screws. Its sound is driven by a single Seymour Duncan Blackout active pickup, designed to provide the hot, articulate response necessary for modern metal. Includes ESP hardshell case.

LTD Sammy Duet Signature Series SD-2

LTD Sammy Duet Signature Series SD-2

Introducing the LTD Sammy Duet Signature Series SD-2! Get all the detailed info and specs here....

something I noticed with mine today... to me, the inlaid LTD logo has a stark visual depth as if it's real mother of pearl. not sure if it actually is that, or if it's pearloid, but whatever it is it's a really nice touch and sure catches the eye. gotta commend sammy for keeping the feature set on this guitar uncompromising and extremely detail oriented, from the logo to the inlays to the stainless steel frets and screws, everything is just really well thought out. and the strap buttons! never before have I played a star or explorer that balanced this well.


Just got mine six days ago! Complements the RL-600 really well

I’ve played an RL-600 once in a guitar store when it was new and I was 19 and couldn’t afford it at the time. And now I think I won’t be complete without one. Balls.

Bought this guitar and was told to expect it’s arrival around the end of January ie my birthday. So my wife is trying to find someone to make a birthday cake with the guitar’s silhouette it. Happy Birthday/New Guitar Day to me. 


RS representation in the US nice

I once thought to myself: “I love the snakebite and the explorer guitar designs, but if I ever see a star shaped guitar body I will hate it.”  I stand corrected.  This design is original and incredible to look at.
