To commemorate the 30th anniversary of their second album, Last In Line, Dio is once again collaborating with ASG to produce something special, and this axe is every bit as unforgettable as the album that rocked audiences across the world 30 years ago. For this instrument we’re going all out and basing the design on our brand new platform for guitar wizardry: the Antimatter. And we’re upping the ante with handcrafted details like airbrushed, commemorative-dated pickup covers and surrounds, a carved mahogany top and our exclusive zero-angle positron headstock, featuring the Dio Last In Line logo. This beast is bound throughout and put together by our crew right here in Fullerton, so every detail is honed to perfection.
The carved top features two items that really make this instrument special: a Kahler trem bridge that screams rock and roll, and artwork adapted from Barry Jackson’s original album design, a subterranean vision of underworld mayhem, sealed with our exclusive chemical bonding process. Between the dual humbuckers and the Kahler dive unit, it’s no mystery that this guitar was built to blow doors and astonish those who witness its fury, just like the unholy wretches who cower before the mammoth vermillion leviathan who commands this scene of chaos and abhorrence. One look into those evil eyes and you’ll be left breathless, but don’t be the last in line for this one—if the quick sellout of our first Dio model is any guide, you’ll want to order ASAP to get on the list for one of only 25 to be produced. Ever. By the way, this outstanding collectible comes with a hardshell case and other extras, including an ASG/Dio limited-edition t-shirt and a Ronnie James Dio X-mas card. Happy holidays!
