Oktober Guitars and NWOBHM's Raven Unveil New MGT Guitar

Oktober Guitars and NWOBHM's Raven Unveil New MGT Guitar -

Oktober Guitars has announced the release of the Mark Gallagher Signature Tele guitar. The MGT is modelled after the legendary Raven guitarist's old warhorse guitar. The Oktober MGT is available worldwide and can be ordered directly from the Oktober Guitars website. 

The MGT takes a traditional look and style and reinvents it with modern day amenities.  Gone is the old school hard tail bridge and it is replaced with a recessed Floyd Rose tremolo system.  An Oktober Suckerpunch humbucking pickup is used in the bridge position to give the guitar more attitude and is balanced by a more traditional Memphis single coil pickup in the neck position.  The body, neck and headstock are highlighted with red body binding and the infamous red Raven Flash streak across the body and inlaid throughout the fretboard.

Standard Options Include:

. Hard rock maple neck
. Mahogany body
. Bolt-on neck construction
. Bound rosewood fretboard with red Raven "Flash" inlays~
. 22 fret neck
. 25 1/2" scale
. Floyd Rose Special tremolo (recessed)
. Oktober Suckerpunch humbucker (bridge)
. Memphis single coil (neck)
. Form-fitting Oktober hard shell case
. Jet Black finish with red Raven Flash

Formed in 1974 by brothers Mark and John Gallagher, Raven went on to play a major role in the New Wave of British Heavy Metal alongside Iron Maiden, Motorhead, Diamond Head and Judas Priest.  With the guitar styling of Mark at the forefront of the Raven sound, the band continues to tour around the world lighting the way for all those inspired by the NWOBHM.

List price: $1699 USD

Factory Direct: $579.99 USD
