A grandpas guitars? Is for pussies and grandpas. I think you know it.
If you’re a fan of ‘Metalocalypse’ and Gibson Guitars, its time for you to look for change in the sofa and cash in some cans! Soon, you will be able to own your very own Dethklok “Thunderhorse” Explorer. Fashioned after Skwisgaar Skwigelf’s guitar, the “Thunderhorse” is a collaboration between Gibson Guitar and Metalocalypse creator and Dethklok music director Brendon Small.
Available beginning next month at Gibson Guitar dealers throughout the U.S., the Dethklok “Thunderhorse” Explorer is a top-flight metal guitar patterned after the animated band’s lead guitarist, Skwisgaar Skwigelf’s weapon of choice. It features a gloss Silverburst finish with cream top and fingerboard binding. It is equipped with Burstbucker 1 and Burstbucker 2 pickups and is decked out with chrome hardware. The limited-edition guitar will be available for a suggested retail price of $2699.
This is one serious instrument. This isn’t just a dumb replica prop. This limited edition Gibson is made for playing and will go well with The Metalocalypse guitar tab book. Gibson lists this sucker at $2699, but you can score one for $1670 direct from GibsonUSA through Amazon. This guitar is limited edition and won’t be around too long so if you happen to buy one, don’t get carried away and smash it on the floor or throw it out the window. \m/
