Kaiju is the Japanese word for a terrifying sea monster.

Now, what do we imagine when we hear those words, “sea monster”? Well, if it moves through the water, it has to be hydrodynamic; if it is terrifying, it surely has teeth, horns, or some other pointy thing. And if it is a monster, it surely is impressive and intimidating.

Aptly named like the fantastic creatures that haunted sailors’ dreams in bygone times, this guitar is dynamic, pointy, and impressive.

With a body made out of a one-piece red Padauk blank, it features a pickguard that (unlike any conventional guitars) is installed flush with the top’s surface. High-quality German hardware and pickups complete the build.
