    If someone's really edgy, they'll put one of those published comics of Muhammad on there and go tour the world.

    Haha I remember being a teenager and lusting after this guitar as well. Would still love it. The sawtooth headstock and 80's camo paint job is amazing.

    Also really GASing hard for this:

    I don't normally like forest green coloured guitars, but here we are. Also been watching a lot of Kiko's YouTube channel, which is pretty awesome and informative.

    Yawn. It's not "being an edgelord," I'm just not very into feigned outrage about something Japanese made by a Japanese company.

    Remember when Chuck stopped writing lyrics about gore and instead focused on current events because he thought that was scary enough?

    I think the whole "Kamikaze" thing wasn't meant to be any sort of political statement but more synonymous with dive bombs and screaming 80's leads, as well as George's overall shred vibe. It's an 80's shred guitar, it's meant to be outrageous, and ready for war!

    My big three I'm never able to have, because they're either too rare or too expensive or both.
    Since I first saw the finish on Mishas Mayones, it's my favorite finish on a guitar forever over everything else

    Can’t find a full photo of the guitar
    Might need to get a Floyd Rose equipped guitar in the arsenal

    Well to be clear, I don't think anyone's ever going to suggest George put it on for political reasons -- that'd be pretty bizarre. It's just that it if you actually understand the historical context it was a pretty sad event, for both sides, and woeful ignorance to think "aw man, explosions, cool".

    And I think the logic you put forth, which I agree might have been what George was going for, is flawed and tasteless. Where's the George Lynch 9/11 guitar? Some Al Qaeda leader's face in the square. Synonymous with dive bombs, screaming 80's leads, outrageous, and ready for war!

    Is there any difference between those two? (In before edgelords try to be edgy in saying a 9/11 guitar would be cool.)

    It is cool, I'm not asking you to defend liking it. I started that tangent to say hey, the more you think about it, isn't this really terrible historical reference to put on a guitar? I'm not judging you if you can look past it -- it's nostalgia now. But I wouldn't expect a similar guitar idea to get off the ground today.

    For sure they couldn't put out an "axis powers" guitar today.... but have you seen the "In My Dreams" video? waterproof?

    It's also sort of ironic that it's a Japanese superstrat. IMO it's not worth being offended by.

    I dunno man, i think it'd be pretty hard to make a 9/11 guitar in 1986, considering it uh... hadn't happened yet
