Sleek, Super Strat’ish in appearance with some sharp ridges that make this unique shape stand out above guitars that derive the super strat shape to add unique charm.
First up lets take a closer look at the pickups. A guitar of looking this metal would typically hail a combination of EMG’s however Aristrides decided to go with some Seymour Duncan’s for bridge (Seymour TB-5, used by Lamb Of God) and Seymour APS-2rwrp (middle), and APS-2 (neck). This provides the Aristrides 010 with some fantastic versatility.
The bits and bobs keeping it in tune are tuners by Sperzel and also has tremelo bridge by Gotoh. Neck is C shaped but has only 22 Frets.
With this unique guitar coming in at 3300 Euros one would be devastated should it go missing. Luckily Aristrides had the forethought to include a Snagg Microchip to enable easy location should your guitar end up at a pawn shop.
Lovely bit of kit you can find more info at Aristrides Instruments
Cooorrr look at this:
This line up of guitars are so metal that they make an iron works look like a Playdo factory!
Models featured come with EMG 81/85 pickup combo selected through the usual 3 way switch.
The Bird of Prey series features nothing but top quality mahogany and as pictured with Flame Maple tops or if you demand something a bit more out there, DBZ Guitars also have a range of awesome macabre graphics just to add that extra edge to the guitar body. Also all models have a Floyd Rose Bridge.
Necks are all ebonized rosewood and come with Grover Tuners.

Surely this shape has to make the lads at Jackson and Mr Rhodes jealous. Sleek and pointy. New V shape for the current decade but with all the good hardware that make rock and metal guitars great.
The Kramertorium is equipped with the ever rocking EMG pickup combo: 81/85 for neck and bridge. And Sturdy recessed bridge with Whammy bar that will make Floyd Rose jealous!
The Neck is constructed in Maple with 24 Frets that are jumbo sized for your playing pleasure.
The guitars all come in a two tone colour. Meaning the back colour is different to the front:
Body is constructed from Mahogany and you can tell this guitar was made for playing all 24 frets, look at the lower cutaway very easy to reach.

Found this one on Ultimate-Guitar forums:
Equipped with Seymour Duncan Distortion bridge pickup for crunchy rhythm and SD Cool Rails pickup for some hot lead action. Keeping these bad boys sounding in tune are Sperzel locking tuners.
Middle pickup route filled in as its pretty versatile with the choice of pickups in neck and bridge and other body customizations include altered headstock shape, side dots added to fretboard and finally Sculpted out heel for easier higher fret access.

Gibson Guitars are usually quite plain paint-wise however the quality of their products speak for them selves. BC Customs come to the table to take an already quality Gibson Les Paul and turn it in something as good to look at as to play!
This particular model comes with gold hardware and classic 490 Alinco Magnet pickup for bridge and 498T pick up in the neck.
Not cheap as you can expect from any Gibson but with the custom paint work it comes in at £2599

Gold and purple oddly works on this guitar. But what works even better on this Ibanez is how it makes it so much easier to reach that 24th fret.
Ibanez approached Herman to build a guitar and came back to him with what was pretty much a standard Egen with some fancy hardware. Herman advised route out the grooves in the body and also further route out the cut on the lower side so you can get your hand much easier to that ever hand stretching 24th fret.
The upper grooves also help when gripping for some extreme tapping. Check out around 2.43 min mark in the Vlog from Herman Below as he explains in more detail:
