In collaboration with the great Ralph Steadman, McSwain originally created this iconic-styled guitar for Slash. Now, you have an opportunity to own one yourself. With a limited Fear and Loathing inspired design, quality hand-built features, and Arcane Triple Clone split coil humbuckers at the neck and bridge, this guitar is a highly functional, incredibly valuable collector's item.

Limited Fear and Loathing Inspired Design
If a guitar was originally designed for Slash, you can be pretty certain it's awesome. This "Savage Journey" guitar features unique Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas artwork by Ralph Steadman. Besides the wild art on the top, the back of this guitar has numerous newspaper clippings across it. It even has "Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas" inlayed across the fretboard. This is a guitar you won't want to miss out on.

Quality Hand-Built Features
McSwain puts an incredible amount of effort and pride into each of their unbelievable guitars. This unique axe features their SM-2 carved-top, tone-chambered mahogany body. Chambered mahogany adds a special tone to the sound of the guitar. Its 3-piece mahogany neck is set into the guitar for ultimate resonance transfer. The fretboard is a ToneLayer-bound ebony, lined with 6120 frets. Throw in vintage-styled tuners and a TonePros locking bridge and you've got one heck of a guitar.

Arcane Triple Clone Split Coil Humbuckers
The sound from this instrument is top-notch. With help from its chambered body, the Arcane Triple Clone split-coil humbuckers create a powerful tone that's great clean or with some gain. There's two volume knobs and one tone knob, and a three-way switch, to help you find the sound you need.
