Revolver: HOW METALLICA'S 'S&M2' INFUSES BLACKENED AMERICAN WHISKEY'S BATCH 106 AND SQUINDO GUITAR
Anyone who has followed Metallica over the past 20 years of the band's career is no doubt familiar, whether they know it or not, with the imagery of Squindo. Since the turn of the millennium, the visual artist's work has appeared on countless 'Tallica T-shirts and posters, not to mention tour passes, bobbleheads, comics and even their official Monopoly game. Now, for the first time ever, an original Squindo — rendered, like most of his work, in ink and pen — is even gracing the body of an ESP LTD electric guitar. Which, according to the artist, is something of a perfect pairing. "It doesn't get more heavy metal or rock & roll than having your shit on a guitar," he says with a laugh.
