The LTD GT-600 Signature Series guitar offers the look, feel, and sound that powers the Judas Priest music which has influenced multiple generations of rock guitarists. Based on the ESP Viper shape, the GT-600 starts with a set-thru neck, allowing for smooth and fast access to the highest frets. It gives you the classic combination of a mahogany body and 3-piece maple neck, along with an ebony fingerboard with 24 extra-jumbo frets. The sound of the GT-600 is powered by Glenn’s own active EMG signature pickup set, along with performance tools like a Kahler Hybrid tremolo. The GT-600 looks as great as it sounds, with red pickup covers and neck/headstock binding, and a killer mirror pickguard to match the rest of its chrome hardware. Available in Black finish.
EMG GTV SET
The EMG GTV Set is the new signature pickups for Glenn Tipton, the EMG GT Vengeance Set. Known for their massive guitar tones, Judas Priest inspired generations of metal fans and Glenn was the cornerstone of that sound. EMG pickups were the first Glenn used to gave him the unique ferocity, depth, and clarity that cut through audiences worldwide. Having played the EMG 81 for well over a decade, Glenn approached EMG for a few modifications to expand his iconic metal sound. Always reaching for more, Glenn embarked on a five year journey that led him to his new signature GTV. This humbucker pickup set is unlike any other EMG in tone and feel. Using ceramic and steel magnets, the GTV maintains high output with a rich smoothness in the mid-range. With its tight attack, amazing clarity, and even response across the audio spectrum, the EMG GTV provides the knockout punch Glenn Tipton demands.
