Ever since we first saw our beloved hedgehog brandishing a sword on the front cover of Nintendo Power and cringed, we've had wonder if hardcore is the proper direction that Sega should be taking Sonic. That is, before we witnessed this "sonic beauty" of a guitar, wielded by Nino of the Brazilian heavy metal band, MegaDriver.
We'll let you view the videos and decide for yourselves if the band is worthy enough to handle his might, but the guitar has us all seeing stars -- on its own merit. This custom axe sports a 24-fret maple neck with EMG 81 active pickups, a Floyd Rose Lo-Pro bridge and a Brazilian body of "Angelim Pedra" wood.
While it may not be a Gibson, Fender, or PRS, if this baby doesn't make you envious, then you obviously don't care much for Sonic and guitars in the first place.
