Hi gang,

Working on a new project. I'm turning the normal guitar into an art guitar. I am documenting my progress with picture and video (that's new). Lots of inlay, custom part, a whole new finish, and a unique fix for a broken headstock. If you interested, check it out.

The Viking Guitar

Wow, it looks great!

I even tried dressing up as a fly myself, and throwing myself out of the window in the hope that they will follow me. But to no avail.

is this advertising. i cant tell. s_s


Well, it's not meant to be. This guitar is not for sale. I'm keeping it. I'm inlaying my name on the control plate. Sorry if it came off that way. I'm just excited about this project and wanted to share my excitment.

Well, I had my reason for putting the Gibson logo back on. I'm sure a lot of people will think it from the Gibson custom shop, which is a bummer, but it is a Gibson guitar.

Thats a sweet guitar.
Well done :]

For a moment I thought you were gonna rebuild the SG to make it look like a Hagström Viking, but this makes much more sense to be honest.
Quote by ljohn
The thing is, in a band like chickenfoot, think of the JSX as a submarine and the Marshall as a plane. No matter how good the submarine is, it might be the perfect submarine, if you need a plane, a submarine ain't gonna do it for you.

and in case you didn't notice his is the ****ty cheap model
which are awful.
My mate has a very nice custom shop mockingbird
but the general consensus of Bc Rich owners have the cheap ****y ones which are generally sub par.

Really? Hmmm, in my opinion the second one was way better. Plus, Vikings didn't wear face masks. Of course they didn't go into battle with horned helmet either, but don't tell anybody.

well, to say the least ive never heard a gibson/epiphony that ive liked.
they all sounds like whiney kids to me >.>

other than that, yep, ive got a metal master.
and it plays as well as, and sounds BETTER than my brothers ibanez rg (idk the number of it tho he got it a while back..)

also, i could give you 1000$ to get me one like i have, and it may take you some time to get one, as you see they are all black guitars (wiht either white, or red tribal patern) where as mine is RED.
hence it being rare.

i have played higher end guitars, and well, there ok, but they all lack something, they all feel "weak" like they aint got no grunt in them...

and gibson are gay because all they do is copy there old models! all the damn reissue crap! i mean, how are they gonna make new stuff when they just copy there old crap?

and bc rich have a lot of iconic shapes, they dare to make shapes that other people frown upon, i think for that, they have guts.

in all truth, you could get me a gibson less paul, worth 1,000,000$ and i would rather have my warlock.

or i would sell it to some other noob who wants to be a "guitar hero".

If your guitar is so god damn rare why can i google it and find that it is on musicians friend, and guitar center + like 10 pages worth of sites. also gibson stick with old models because the old models work. as in they can still be marketed very well. bc rich makes new models to try and keep up with the marketing. and as for bc rich making iconic shapes. I would say yes it you were in a foaggot 80's hair metal band. im just gonna laugh at your last comment.
