Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at PhotobucketThis guitar really takes the biscuit! It looks as if someone wanted to emulate the now legendary Dobbincaster and create an animal-themed guitar. Check out those fingerboard inlays - they are bone shaped. Wacky, eh?

I reckon they could have been a bit more inventive. For instance, how about having the dog's head emerging from a kennel? As it is, the fade to a turquoise Randy Rhodes style shape just doesn't work for me.

And why not give the dog a collar and attach the strap to that as if it were a leash? That would have been quite funny.

Anyhow, this beastie is equipped with what appears to be a backwards mounted EMG-81 pickup, so not only does it look like a complete dog's breakfast, it probably sounds like one too. (For those who can't be bothered to read between the lines, I am not a fan of EMG pickups. But that's another story.)

"Great sound for heavy metal", it says. Now, had Anthrax changed their name to Basketful of Puppies as was once suggested during the anthrax scares of a few years ago, then this would have been the guitar for them.
