80s Elektro Heavy Metal Balalaika (allegedly)

guitarz.blogspot.com: Well, here’s something a little bit … different. The Russian traditional 3-string folk instrument gets a heavy metal makeover. Although in the demo video (below), it’s playing 1980s electro-pop. I think for a metal sound it’d need a meatier pickup than a Tele neck-position unit. Available from Folk Friends (in Germany) priced at €359,00… Keep Reading

Note the primitive-looking blade-style pickup has been mounted near to the… Keep Reading

ESP LTD Lion guitar – a beautiful and unashamed objet d’art

guitarz.blogspot.com: I saw this picture on Facebook earlier today. It’s a creation of the ESP Custom Shop in Japan. The Facebook post was accompanined by all the predictable “How on Earth do you play that?” comments, all of which are quite obviously missing the point. You don’t play it, it’s a work of art. It’s… Keep Reading

With two Teisco pickups and a hollow body, I’m sure it has a distinctive tone. I like the look of the tremolo and the little nick out of the scratchplate. Very stylish. The… Keep Reading
