Hutchinson Guitar Concepts Unveil The Viking V
After last years'
success with three unique guitars designed and modified for James
Hetfield of Metallica, Hutchinson Guitar Concepts summons up Norse
mythology for the latest concept: the Viking V.
PRESS RELEASE-- After last years success with three unique
guitars designed and modified for James Hetfield of Metallica,
Hutchinson Guitar Concepts summons up Norse mythology for the
latest concept: the Viking V.
According to myth, Fenrir is a monstrous wolf who prophecies
foretell as being destined to harm the gods. The gods prepared
three fetters to restrain Fenrir. The first two: Leyding and Dromi
were great iron fetters but could not bind Fenrir. The third was
Gleipnir constructed by dwarfs from six mythical ingredients and
while it appeared like silken ribbon it fully bound the mighty wolf
and the gods fastened it to a great stone slab called Gjöll and
anchored it in the ground by a rock.
This restrained Fenir until Ragnarok when it is written all
bonds will break and the Fenrisúlfr (Fenris wolf) shall devour the
god Odin whole.
This amazing guitar is based on a Gibson Flying V and has been
carved and crafted to look like a mighty iron Viking weapon of
doom. It features the god Odin being devoured by Fenrir in a
traditional anamorphic Celtic knotwork style. Hand wound pickups, a
Schaller roller bridge and a custom V tailpiece specially cast for
this guitar combine to produce a very unique instrument.
More designs are available through the Hutchinson Guitar
Concepts website, which features a portfolio of finished
instruments that exert design inspiration from themes as diverse as
Steampunk, Natural Disasters, and Chinese dynasties.
Hutchinson's Viking V, Cybertech, and Bronze Top guitars are
just a few examples of what can be achieved through intricate wood
carving, masterful finishing and state of the art electronics.
Hundreds of hours of work go into every fine detail, ensuring that
each Tibetan symbol is perfectly engraved, and each ripple of
molten lava oozes and glows with incredible LED lighting effects.
Every guitar featured in Hutchinson's portfolio is available as a
theme to order for your own guitar.
