"This is a cool one. This is tuned down to D. It was an experiment that Ernie Ball did, and this is actually aluminum laminated to the top. He made two of these which we possess. It's a tiny bit brighter but it's a cool guitar. We got this one again while we were in the studio and [John] had me tune it down to D for one song. That's what he recorded with. Tonight he'll use it on 'Endless Sacrifice' and then the other D song in the set is 'Forsaken', depending on what set list we're doing. Same pickups, Crunch Lab Liquifire, this one's got Black Hardware instead of Chrome, black headstock instead of the matching color. This is a cool guitar and we have two of these.
