Mahogany Body in Eclipse Shape

Plug in the ESP LTD GH-600 sound will resonate through and through with an ample helping of middle and low frequencies. Mahogany tends to keep things dark by pushing those lows, and you'll also never find yourself short on sustain -- a nice bonus when you flood your signal with gain and let that feedback grow. The Eclipse shape boasts a slick look, and it also allows you to reach those higher frets easily while resting comfortably against your front. Cool red binding adds an intriguingly colorful contrast.

Pair of Red EMG Pickups

That wall-of-sound EMG pickup pairing is tough to beat. These active humbuckers will fuel your signal with a powerful metal tone that pierces through the air. The EMG 89R at the neck forges a slightly warmer output with plenty of body, while the EMG 81R at the bridge features that aggressive and powerful EMG sound heard from many different read more guitarists in the metal and thrash scene. Play around with your pickup settings and dual volume controls to hear the huge dynamic reach these two pickups can deliver on demand.

Floyd Rose Bridge Pushing the Limit

A Floyd Rose tremolo bridge holds your strings down securely, while leaving enough flexibility to offer greater sustain and room for string bending and dive bombs. This bridge is a treat for the shredding guitarist. After you get your strings in tune, lock them down at the nut, and you can go on shredding for weeks without having to worry about losing any intonation.

Lightning-Fast Mahogany Neck

The mahogany neck on your Gary Holt GH-600 electric guitar features a comfortable Thin U contour for your hand to traverse with ease. 22 XJ frets span over a smooth ebony fingerboard which boasts a cool red binding and super tight action. This neck is a perfect playground for your fingers to push themselves to the limit and see just how fast each note can fly from the fretboard to your amplifier.

I bought this guitar slightly used on a 4 payment plan. I have a few other high end metal guitars and this one is by far my favorite. I plug it into a Peavey 6505 and the time is as metal as you will find. Bad ass guitar and a great company.
