American Showster - where guitar and biker culture collide

Bike culture frequently manifests itself in the guitar world with hot rod finishes, pin stripes, etc, but never more so than on a guitar such as this 1997 American Showster. To the uninitiated it may look like a reverse body teardrop-shaped guitar, but the body shape is - of course - styled after the gas tank of a chopper. It even comes complete with the fuel cap. The guitar is equipped with two Golden Lace Sensor pickups in the neck and center positions and a Red Lace Sensor in the bridge position, with the pickups arranged Strat style with a reverse angled bridge pickup. It also has a Floyd Rose trem and locking nut.

Currently listed on eBay with a Buy It Now price of $1,495.
