Judas Priest unveil limited edition British Steel Artist Series Guitar

Judas Priest are sharing a preview of the new limited-edition Artist Series Guitar based on their 1980 album classic, “British Steel.”

Limited to 30 hand-numbered guitars, ASG and Judas Priest have worked together to create the guitar that perfectly represents the band’s iconic album.

Rosław Szaybo’s distinctive razorblade-in-hand cover art bursts off the hand-carved mahogany top, complimenting the single cutaway guitar’s solid mahogany body, rosewood fingerboard, Mother-of-Pearl trapezoid inlays, Gravedigger headstock, custom ASG Arsenal pickups and chrome ASG headstock emblem.

The pre-sale for th ASG guitars begins June 17 – for full details, click here.

The band’s sixth album, “British Steel” featured Priest classics like “Breaking The Law”, “Metal Gods” and “Living After Midnight.” The project quickly went platinum and hit the charts on both sides of the Atlantic.

Next month, Judas Priest will release their 17th album, “Redeemer Of Souls.”

The project will be available in a standard version and a deluxe edition with five bonus tracks.
