Artist Series Guitar (ASG) have announced they will be releasing two massive new models on September 1st, Asking Alexandria and Sick Of It All's 25th Anniversary. Pre-sales for the guitars start on August 1st, exclusively through ArtistSeriesGuitar.com and are only made in the limited collector quantity of 500 each. As with the previous line of ASG Guitar's the bands design the models themselves with guitars being made of solid mahogany body with humbucker pick-ups.
Speaking on their ASG model which features the band's signature dragon logo and celebrates 25 years of hardcore punk domination, Sick Of It All guitarist Pete Koller said "The guitar looks amazing! I can't wait for them to be out there for our fans. Our logo, the Sick Of It All dragon has been with us as long as we've been around. When you see someone with the SOIA dragon logo you know they are one of us and part of the worldwide hardcore army."
ASG ceo Vijay Kumar says "The main mission of ASG is to create a legion of kids that play guitar so they too can start their own bands. It was my favorite bands that inspired me to pick up a guitar and learn to play. Sick Of It All has inspired so many great punk hardcore bands to start and were an essential part of my life. It's a honor to have them join ASG. Asking Alexandria, on the other side of the coin, represents the new wave of DIY bands that have broken through to the mainstream, subverting from the inside. We look forward to their fans being able to pick up their ASG."
Artist Series Guitar launched in summer of 2010 and has included models by Demon Hunter, Parkway Drive, Bleeding Through, Death By Stereo and Throwdown. Press has been quick to give props to the company with Ultimate-Guitar.com saying These are very reasonably-priced, feature-rich guitars, with great tone and These easily stand up to any other Les Paul-inspired guitar, and due to the limited nature of each artistic run, you're virtually guaranteed to stand apart when you take the stage. Alternative Press, Revolver, Hails & Horns, Sirius Radio and Noisecreep also featured ASG as well. Sick Of It All and Asking Alexandria models begin shipping on September 1st.
