how would you compare that one with GOTW 20?
I'd like to hear you general comparison and then how GOTW is good for heavy metal
the other one u see on that picture is a 2006 LP Standard with 60's neck, the GOTW 20 is lighter since it's chambered but the neck feels better , to me at least, because of the 50's neck and the satin finish makes it very fast....the pickups are EMG's 85/81 and you either like 'em or not....I like them a lot.
Also the pickups have the quick connect cables so when you are restringing you can swap with other emg's or maybe something like Duncan Blackouts, by just unscrewing the pickups rings...Great guitar for metal and this is what it was made for, but also if you roll back the volume on the neck pickup you can get some nice warm bluesy sounds.
