Few guitarists have had a bigger impact on the origins of thrash metal than Gary Holt. Joining his friend Kirk Hammett in Bay Area band Exodus in 1981, Gary has written and performed on every Exodus album ever made. When Slayer needed someone qualified to fill in for the iconic guitarist Jeff Hanneman for their final album and tours, Gary was the obvious choice.

The LTD SV GH-200 allows more players to get the look of Gary's LTD GH-SV at an even more affordable price tag. This guitar offers the same cool offset ESP SV body shape, black finish, and red multi-binding as its higher-end version. The GH SV-200 has a solid set of features including bolt-on construction at 24.75" scale with a mahogany body and three-piece mahogany neck, a roasted jatoba fingerboard with pearloid split block inlays and 22 extra-jumbo stainless steel frets. Its black hardware and components include a Floyd Rose 1000 double-locking tremolo, LTD tuners, and a set of direct-mount high-output ESP LH-301 pickups with red covers, offering excellent tonal clarity, well-rounded highs and lows, and superb articulation.
