    I mean they only really have claim to the S (sowilo) rune and a specific iteration of a solar sign (black sun/swastika). Lumping in/associating all of norse/germanic paganism with nazis is ridiculous. That'd be like not ever listening to Beethoven or Wagner because the nazis liked them.

    Michael Amott has valknut inlays in his signature guitars, which is a symbol known to be used by these neo nazi white supremacist types... again stolen from old norse imagery. It was a symbol of dead warriors and their willingness to die in battle :coffee:

    Move over Vejichan and Metalhex, there's a new troll in town...

    You're either trolling or you're going through a midlife crisis with your insistence on getting something completely custom. I took your first post here seriously and tried to give you sound advice, but these last posts are ridiculous and desperate cries for attention. Nevermind the fact that you're now offboard with the slayer themed guitar and all about an anime themed guitar in the course of a few hours. You're 50 going on 15...move along, no sympathy from any of the people here.

    OP wants to order an ESP NS theme guitar which ESP refuses to build so in a heartbeat he switches to a >10k full custom anime guitar. Not gonna happen.

    I don't mind these LARP posts, I get a pretty good chuckle from them.

    It's fair to say that in metal, there are a lot of themes reflecting a fascination with evil & dark themes. There is that thin line between fascination and endorsement- kind of like the 'mention versus use' in context- that Jeff could charitably have been said to have stomped along for the sake of provocation.

    Regardless of the inlays/memorabilia, you're not gonna find anyone who actually knew Jeff or worked with him that's says he was a nazi.

    He also loved the Dead Kennedys. Nazi or white power types are not wearing a t-shirt from a band that wrote "nazi punks f**k off" but Jeff proudly did.
