Got My Grail Guitar!

Do I have good taste, or what!?





Bill Kelliher (of Mastodon) signature Gibson Explorer, AKA the Golden Axe.

- Beautiful translucent gold-burst finish with cream binding
- Gold hardware
- Nitro Lace Hemi humbuckers with coil-splitting
- Relocated pickup selector toggle
- Fast and thin neck, somewhere between a stock Explorer and an Ibanez Wizard.

Basically, if I had my own signature model, it would be this exact same guitar. It pretty much is made to my specs. I'm gonna have to fire off a thank you letter to Bill...

Not my style, but I can definitely see the appeal.

Lovelovelove Explorers! Even though I don't play it much, I still have my Epiphone Explorer bass (black body, white pickguard with brass hardware). Always loved the design. Very good taste, sir!

Magoo, I kind of want to fondle with your guitar case...seems like it would be nice and soft.

Nice guitar! I always wish I would've taken up guitar more than just learning basic notes on an acoustic in school....

Not only is it super cuddly soft, it's scented with vanilla. Gibson is weird in all the right ways.

Bachanokis, those are beautiful! Tele bodies have always held a place in my heart, but that red one is gorgeous. How did you draw out the flaming in the wood grain like that? That is a DEEP color...
