Metal & Punk Guitars

Updated 22 April 2006

The Ibanez Destroyer:

a rockin' Holy Grail -- before Eddie van Halen had any sense, he played one of these. Made in Japan circa 1978.

We don't know who was smoking what, but these guitars should never have been allowed in the door! I can't listen to one more puebo-guitar solo from this pile. SO... here they are, real cHEAp!

This is part of the old Dean stock

and the blue one is on deck.

Nasty, pointy, pud-pullers!

We call 'em Krammits" -- heavy metal sticks that screech and squeal and make god-awful noises. They should have been banned at the door, but they were such good quality guitars, we had to offer the welcome mat. There's probably 30 of these things hiding in the Subway inventory -- and we hate 'em. Crushed red pearl Night Swan, short (Gibson)-scale, ebony fretboard -- a top-quality instrument. Three humbucking blue rock star "thang" with a star on it -- so some dweeb named Ricky Sanborn would remember who he was. Red Focus 5000 -- wanted to be the pointiest guitar on Planet Earth; it could be a gruesome marshall arts weapon. Whoever designed this should be in a padded cell. Bile yellow, black and white jerk-and-spurt models. These have USA parts (I actually think the necks and bodies were made in Canada). Don't let me look at these things another day! from $300

Black USA Dean V. White binding. Floyd. Zebra pickups. $700

Platinum Flying V. Probably by Ibanez. Killer humbuckers. Was in a TV commercial for video games. $375

We're embarrassed by this Dean ML. Neck-through atrocity. Blueburst with a lightning graphic played by some dweeb named Darryl. $800

Red Explorer clone with glued-in neck. Schaller Zebra humbuckers. Non-trem gold bridge. High tech. $300

Explorer copy. Glued-in neck, gold hardware. Binding. New. Strings through back. $300

White kramit (Kramer American). Three on-off switches, Floyd, wanker's dream. $325

Blue kramit (Kramer). Two humbuckers with a Floyd to jerk and spurt with. USA. $325

Ordering Merchandise

I understand your concerns about buying a guitar over the Internet. You can't put your hands on it. You don't know what it'll look like, what it'll sound like, how it will feel. Then there are the issues surrounding shipping anxiety: "Will it arrive undamaged?" "When will it arrive?" "WILL it arrive?" The concerns go on and on: "What's the tracking number?" "Will you ship it today?" "When will you ship it?" "Can I get it tomorrow?"

Here are five key points to put your mind at ease:


"Experience Ecstacy" for a week with your new guitar. If the instrument is not what you expected, then expect a full refund on merchandise returned in the condition of purchase. Fatdog considers this the backbone of good biz (and happy customers).

NOTE: There is no refund for shipping.

Trade-ins are seriously considered at a high value.
