Certificate is MIA, so priced accordingly.
Signed on the headstock by designer & Hallmark owner Bob Shade. Overall Excellent Condition with only some superficial picking marks that can only be seen at a certain angle. A Must for bizarre guitar collect ors & Batman Collectors alike !!
Original Hardshell & Literature Sheet Included.
This guitar is number 40 of a limited series of 100 guitars built by Hallmark Guitars .In conjunction with legendary car designer George Barris ( the original Batmobile and many others). Serial number is stamped in the fretboard. Killer feature is a red "taillight" that lights up when you throw the switch on top. Besides the obvious Batman design references, the pickup, peg head shape and tailpiece show a definite Mosrite influence. Either which way this rocking guitar called Wing Bat endorsed by George Barris who is very well known as The King of the Kustomizers is one badass mod that will pop your eyes out. Designed by Bob Shade the guitar is one mean musical instrument with humungous power to take a live show by the storm courtesy the all upper fret ranges for quick response and output. Coming in a limited edition of 100 and in an exotic faux crocodile skin case .
The combination of scalloped wing design and the custom prepared black & fluorescent red paint gives this guitar a very unique look that is irresistible. On the output bases also the guitar fairs well as it has 60 custom pickups and a turbine power boost switch for that peak performance. Other than that there are shade vibrato and roller bridge in a beautiful mahogany body having maple neck with ebony fingerboard.
The Barris Kustom shield is also painted on the faux-alligator custom fit hard case.
These came out in 2009, and quickly doubled in value after the limited run of 100 sold out. Since the passing of George Barris in November of last year, these have become even more desirable, by guitar collectors, Batman fans and even fans of car collecting and customization.
