The Hentor Sportscaster!
Hello my fellow Rush fans! Alex Lifeson has given me permission to backwards engineer and meticulously blueprint his iconic Hentor Sportscaster so that I may make and sell accurate replicas. I have had the Hentor in my possession for about 6 months and have documented every property and detail of this amazing and unique sounding guitar. Alex’s only stipulation was that for every guitar sold, a portion of the profit goes to his charity “Grapes Under Pressure”. While in my possession over the last few months I made suggestions to Alex on upgrading the guitar. The Hentor now sports Dimarzio FS-1 single coils and I also fabricated a huge brass sustain block for the Floyd Rose, the biggest one I’ve seen and yet there is still a good amount of movement available. These two upgrades as well as others are listed in my OPTIONS category.
I’m pleased to present my new offering of:
