As I Lay Dying and Bad Brains Announce Limited-Edition Artists Series Guitars Designed by the Bands
As I Lay Dying and Bad Brains have announced exclusive band-designed guitars with Artist Series Guitar (ASG), a Los Angeles-based company specializing in limited edition guitars designed by internationally acclaimed bands and artists such as Dio, Cypress Hill, Asking Alexandria, Bring Me The Horizon, and more.
Each band is branding their guitar with album artwork set exclusively for Artist Series Guitar. Artist Series Guitar will only produce 50 of each model, all of which include these key attributes:
- Solid Mahogany body with Set Mahogany Neck
- Rosewood Fingerboard with Mother-of-Pearl Inlays
- ASG Arsenal Pickups – Dual-Coil Humbuckers with Alnico V mags
- Kluson-style tuners
- Hand-carved mahogany top
- Ivory Binding on Body, Neck and Headstock
Speaking on the release of these collectible guitars, ASG owner Vijay Kumar says, “Each of these models will be remembered as an ASG favorite and will most likely be gone overnight. The artwork from Bad Brains’ classic album and the beautiful tone of the As I Lay Dying artwork both lend perfectly to our exclusive finishing process. More importantly, both these bands represent a scene and culture that ASG is committed to progressing.”Â Kumar adds that the quality of every ASG rivals all the major players in the guitar manufacturing world. “I am very proud of every single guitar that leaves our shop, each one of which I play to make sure it’s up to ASG’s stringent standards,” states Kumar.
ASG will be releasing the As I Lay Dying and Bad Brains model guitars this Tuesday, April 2, and is expecting to sell out within the first week. All those that purchase either guitar on April 2 or 3, will receive a free bundle courtesy of ASG and each respective band, which includes a limited edition ASG skate deck, ASG T-Shirt, ASG Snap-Back hat and a Band T-Shirt. Get the As I Lay Dying guitar within the first two days and the band will autograph it, giving every As I Lay Dying ASG owner an even more limited guitar.
The As I Lay Dying and Bad Brains guitars will be available for online purchase at ArtistSeriesGuitar.com starting 12:00 am on April 2.
