Go ahead, buy the issue and brush up on your wine and cheese repertoire while perusing photos of Kirk Hammett’s crib in Hawaii. If you’re feeling oh-so-rebellious—steal it.

  3. Jol, the Crow guitar looks fantastic! Really came together nicely. Proportions of the guitar are right on, and I love the knobs. Great job!
