ARGH! This is so cool! Buddy Blaze (maker of some of the greatest guitars in the world – seriously, you have to play my Blaze seven-string some time) is launching the new 25th Anniversary Shredder VC-II / LS at The NAMM Show on Saturday. It has a Seymour Duncan Full Shred signed by Seymour himself (read my review here) and JB, just like the original Kramer Nightswan further back in its family tree.

Only 25 will be made, each with a unique lightning storm graphic hand-painted by Buddy. They’ll have an Original Floyd Rose tremolo with R1 nut (Titanium Floyd optional), a Honduras Mahogany body, figured maple neck with 16″ radius ebony fretboard, 24 5/8″ scale length, Buddy Blaze-designed CTS pot, and a certificate of authenticity signed by Buddy and Vivian.

If you’re around, meet Vivian Campbell at Buddy’s NAMM booth #2382 from 1:30pm-3:00 Saturday.
