Mastodon's Bill Kelliher Thrilled With His Golden Axe

(Gibson) Mastodon's Bill Kelliher recently praised the attributes of Gibson's newly launched Kelliher Signature "Golden Axe" Explorer in a new YouTube video.

"I've always been a fan of Explorers," he says. "This [one] is like the 'blingy' axe . Just the way it looks to me, first off, makes me excited. And it sounds great. The pickups in it are amazing the Nitro Hemi's. They're really hot pickups, real precise." Watch the video here.

So, how did Kelliher come up with name "Golden Axe"? "'Golden Axe' is an old video game by Sega that I used to play at the arcades," he explains.

"Going to the Gibson factory, going there in person, on tour ... was [great]. Being a Gibson guitar player since I was 15 years old to go in and actually have people making my Signature model was pretty darn cool. It's up there in the Top 10 [events] in the history of my life." more on this story
