Hammerhead

In 2016 I made a big EX style guitar called “The Æsc” for Justin Pryce from the band, Hærken. The Æsc ended up being quite popular, with quite a few people asking for replicas. Justin wanted very much to keep his guitar as the only one made in that particular shape, so I decided to design a modified version to have as a stock option for everyone that was looking for something big, pointy and powerful.
I’ve always been a big fan of EX styles and it’s a great feeling to have my own version out there in the world. These guitars make for fantastic show pieces and have an un-missable stage presence!
