I’m burnin’, I’m burnin’, I’m burnin’ for this guitar!
Eric Bloom, guitar god and frontman for Blue Oyster Cult, is known for cowbell – and for the many unusual guitars he’s played, from his Renaldo Custom BÖC-Logo shaped guitar, to his custom-airbrushed guitars, to his still-classic custom-made Gibson SG’s.
Sure, you can see some of these guitars at several Hard Rock Cafés around the world, but why stop there? Together with a renowned artist, Bloom has created a limited number of unique, hand-painted guitars that reflect some of BÖC’s biggest hits. AND ONE IS STILL AVAILABLE.
Got $4,000 burning a hole in your pocket? Then Bloom’s “City’s On Flame” guitar can be yours, yours, yours. More than a great guitar, it’s an incredible collectible – something to spice up your décor and your conversation.
But wait, there’s more…Bloom will play your guitar at an upcoming BÖC show, then autograph it and give it to you at that show. Talk about delivery that delivers..
This is the only guitar left from his current series, and if I had a spare $4K it would be mine already.
