Jim Hetfield the frontman for Metallica acquired a few bucks and had a number of custom cars built.
He's is loaning 10 of them to the Peterson Museum.

What? This is the guitars thread? Ok, I'm getting there.
He also donated two of his guitars to be auctioned off for the benefit of the museum.
The prices are list new, I don't know what was bid for them, I'd imagine more.

He's got a "type", doesn't he?

Those are the two he's giving away so that may not be his type. I'm assuming he gets them for nothing, being a big star has its perks.

Here is a list of the 85 guitars he plays the most.

On that page are links to the others he doesn't play as often, his acoustic guitars, and guitars he used in concerts.

The body is strat shaped, but there's no contour, and the pickups and bridge are like a Gibson. SuperStrat. The inlay on the fret board is involved.

Yes, the inlay work is fantastic on the last one.

And the American Ultra, I was just saying two years ago in the LJ tellyou thread that Fender doesn't do transparent dye colors, well now they do. That one above is $1900 but they even do it on a $1000 model.

Better chemistry, better materials available I guess. They have to consider how it affects the sound as well as appearance.

yes and I was figuring, if they just go opaque they can use any piece of wood, they don't have to worry if the grain is purty or not. For mass production they want everything to look roughly the same...

Somebody had a lot of fun... maybe even money for nothing and at least some chicks for free.

given the exact matching turquoise color, I'd say they were 'relic'ed on purpose

Could they not have started out together the same color, like two guys in the same band sharing a can of paint?
