The look of this custom strat was completely designed by the BurnMethod team with input from the customer. The customer suggested that our artists take inspiration from the wood grain on the body and we came up with a surreal mountain landscape in hues of reds and golds, complete with an annodized gold pickguard and contrast black sky.
