This Hurricane is ready to go

This Hurricane that we’ve been chronicling is complete. It’s ready to go; ready for someone to make some noise with it! Way back when we started it, we set out to make a unique looking and sounding guitar that would be a show after show workhorse. This one should do the trick.

It’s relatively light weight thanks to a basswood-core body. It has quite a unique look with it’s blue tiger maple finish. The high output Bill Lawrence Dimebag pickups give it plenty of voice, although it’s a bit harsh. All in all, this is a pure menace.


  • Nut width: 1 5/8 inch (Les Paul size)
  • Scale length: 24.75 inches (Les Paul)
  • 22 Frets, medium size
  • Standard thin neck with a double barrel truss rod
  • STORM custom peghead ¬†with 3×3 tuning machines
  • Tiger maple veneer over basswood body
  • Bill Lawrence 500XL Neck pickup
  • Bill Lawrence X500XL Dimebag Darrel Bridge Pickup
  • Nashville Tune-o-matic bridge
  • Though the body stringing
  • Volume & Tone control (500K pots for both)
  • Bridge/Neck/Both pickup selection switch
  • Translucent blue nitrocellulose lacquer finish

This was an experimental design with the  basswood core and tiger maple top/back. We wanted to test out how the body would come together in appearance, feel and sound. So, we built it and we played it and played it and played it. It handles great, sounds great and looks great. We like it in all respects and will use this technique on future models.

So, who’s this aggressive beast going to? Well, that’s kind of up to you. Since this was an experimental prototype and we played it quite a bit, we’re going to put it on E-Bay as a demo model. That means someone is going to get a monster of a guitar at a pretty fair bargain.
