Rig Rundown: Exodus' Gary Holt [2015]

The thrash-metal legend keeps things simple with signature ESP guitars, and a mix of analog and digital gear.


Holt's ESP LTD GH-600 in basic black sees a lot action every night and it comes loaded with EMG pickups (89R in the neck and 81 in the bridge). All of his guitars are strung with custom Dunlop .010-.050 Heavy Core strings.
