MELECHESH - Ashmedi Signature 12-String Guitar Unveiled!

MELECHESH - Ashmedi Signature 12-String Gu... - 2013-02-07 00:00

2013-02-07 00:00 - Fernandes Guitars and Ashmedi of Mesopotamian thrashing black metal pioneers MELECHESH, have collaborated to present the very unique Vortex Scimitar 12-string electric guitar! This is arguably the first mass produced electric 12-string in a V shape, offering a whole new approach to composing extreme metal and music in general.

“The first time I played a 12-string I noticed that I could compose MELECHESH tracks differently,” commented vocalist/guitarist/mastermind Ashmedi. “New ideas started popping up and basically the 12-string opened a ton of new musical dimensions to me. I was very glad when Fernandes took on this adventurous endeavour and made it a reality. The octave sounds are subtle and great when playing power chords, single notes and fast riffing. To an extent, you get a feeling of a storm or an orchestra accompanying you when playing the Scimitar. Hopefully this will open up some new musical ideas in the extreme metal scene.”
