Take a Look at Cynosure's Wild New Judas Priest Custom Guitars
As first reported by our pals at Music Radar, Cynosure has unveiled two new Judas Priest-themed guitars for exhibition at the Bloodstock Festival’s RAM gallery; the British Steel and Angel V.
The guitars will be part of a dedicated Judas Priest wall at the RAM gallery in honor of the band, who are headlining the British festival’s first night. The Bloodstock Festival takes place on August 9-12 2018 at Catton Park, Derbyshire, and features headliners Judas Priest, Gojira and Nightwish.
The Angel V—which was inspired by the Priest albums Painkiller and Angel of Retribution—features a black walnut body, a streamlined neck striated with cumaru and maple woods, a tremolo bridge and a wenge fretboard.
Of course, the guitar also features carved wooden feathers and a circular saw blade, plus a large JP ‘trident’ logo hand-cut from zebrawood.
Cynosure said the guitar was inspired by “Themes of duality, such as real/manufactured, new/old, advanced/primitive, dead/alive.” You can watch a video documenting its creation below.
