Mastodon's Bill Kelliher Thrilled With His Golden Axe
"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
