A Guitar Suited for Slayer

Get crushing tone and lightning fast playability with the ESP LTD GH-600 Gary Holt Signature solidbody electric guitar. While Gary Holt is the newest guitar player to join Slayer, he spent over 30 years in the iconic thrash band Exodus. His signature guitar has all the aggression and smooth playability you would expect from a metal machine. You get dual EMG pickups, a Floyd Rose bridge, a thin-profile mahogany neck with an ebony fretboard, and more. If you want a guitar that will rock any stage, then you want the ESP LTD GH-600 Gary Holt Signature electric guitar.

ESP LTD GH-600 Gary Holt Signature Solidbody Electric Guitar at a Glance:
  • Aggressive modern tone from dual EMG active humbucking pickups
  • ESP's iconic Eclipse body style is primed for rock
  • Floyd Rose bridge/tailpiece for reliable, expressive performance
Aggressive modern tone from dual EMG active humbucking pickups

The LTD GH-600 Gary Holt comes equipped with a red EMG 89R humbucker in the neck position, voiced for classic-thick tone. It's a great pickup for warmer tone that remains articulate and defined. The red EMG 81 at the bridge position gives you the classic EMG sound - detailed and aggressive, with rich sustain. Between these two pickups, you'll cover the sonic range from mellow to maniacal. If it's good enough for Gary Holt's gig in Slayer, then it's good enough for you!

ESP's iconic Eclipse body style is primed for rock

Nothing screams hard rock like ESP's timeless Eclipse body style. The extra mass of this single-cutaway design gives the LTD GH-600 Gary Holt guitar truly epic sustain, whereas its slightly arched top provides you with comfortable hand positioning, no matter your picking style. Add to that a super-sharp cutaway, which gives you open access to the LTD GH-600 Gary Holt guitar's upper frets, and you're totally ready to shred.

Floyd Rose bridge/tailpiece for reliable, expressive performance

For serious shredability, the LTD GH-600 Gary Holt comes equipped with a real Floyd Rose tremolo bridge - a favorite of Sweetwater's metal players. A remake of the original Floyd Rose blade tremolo, this incredible bridge lets you grab on, rock out, and never worry about pulling your tuning out of whack. You'll get both the rock-solid reliability and the tight response you need when you rock out with a LTD GH-600 Gary Holt.

ESP LTD GH-600 Gary Holt Signature Solidbody Electric Guitar Features:
  • Classic-looking electric guitar with exceptional sustain and aggressive tone
  • Thin U-shaped profile makes the mahogany neck play fast and smooth
  • Dual EMG pickups give you aggressive tone, hot output, and excellent note definition
  • Floyd Rose 1000 Series tremolo lets you perform big bends with excellent tuning stability
  • Set-neck construction gives you long-lasting sustain and excellent articulation
Rock the house with the ESP LTD GH-600 Gary Holt Signature guitar!

GREAT Guitar!!!

I've lived with this guitar for a little over a year now; I believe I was the first person to order one from Sweetwater (the pictures above may even be my actual guitar). All I can say is I couldn't be more satisfied with this thing. Some may say they don't like the EMG's or that you can't get a good clean tone out of it (I disagree with that last point; neck pickup with the volume knob pulled up gives me a tone I dig), but I'd ask those people why they bought a Gary Holt signature model if they wanted to play Creedence tunes. This is a high quality instrument (I own Japanese ESP models as well; this thing passes muster) that absolutely kicks butt for what it is meant to do. It sounds and plays great, and once set-up properly for your string gauge (you'll want to upgrade to a thicker gauge string if you are going to play in dropped tunings), not even a nose-dive on stage will knock this thing out of tune (true story). Holt himself plays this LTD model on stage with Slayer, so that should tell you a lot. Ian at Sweetwater was fantastic with keeping me updated on my order (took just a bit of time to come in) and I couldn't be happier with the service I receive from them.

ESP LTD satisfaction.

I have owned this guitar for a little over two months. This ESP LTD has proven to have incredible tone and a high degree of quality in it's construction. The hardware and controls are very tight and the action is outstanding. My Sweetwater rep Ryan did an awesome job in helping me place the order for this and other equipment I purchased. He made sure to notify me once my guitar shipped (which was immediate), and followed up to ensure my satisfaction. The packaging was done in a manner that completely protected my investment. Although I was initially concerned about ordering a guitar online, those thoughts have been wiped away by the service and care shown by this company.


I couldn't be happier with my new Gary Holt signature ESP LTD GH600EC! Awesome awesome guitar, best I've ever owned! And the folks at Sweetwater couldn't have been better to work with. When no one else had the guitar in stock and constantly getting the runaround from Guitar Center, I found it on Sweetwater's website and ordered it, on a Monday, and the guitar was in my hands on Wednesday.....2 days! Sweetwater definitely made a return customer out of me! I HIGHLY recommend this guitar and highly recommend doing business with Sweetwater!
