In the heady world of rock ‘n’ roll it’s always a good idea to have a nice bit of wood in your hand. But when the closest most of us get to such hedonistic highs is the plastic riffage of Guitar Hero things can start to feel a little fake.That is unless you’re sporting one of these little beauties. Some bright spark across the pond has done what we’ve been dreaming of ever since we discovered Guitar Hero and modified an actual guitar to use with the PS2 version of the game.ArtGuitar, which normally designs custom guitar graphics, has sculpted the AG RiffMaster (pictured) from a genuine Peavey axe and splashed 17 different limited edition designs across them, featuring rock legends such as Kiss, Megadeth, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Ozzy Osbourne and Pantera.Obviously the strings have been removed and replaced with the trademark five coloured buttons amongst the frets but the tuning pegs still remain on the headstock. For unrestricted rocking they’ve also stuffed it with wireless tech.If you want to fulfil your rock ‘n’ roll dreams you’ll need to be quick; they’re only on-sale until the end of the year exclusively from ArtGuitar.com.
