Cheap Japanese with American Horsepower
The Banshee is a ’95 Mazda Miata that we stuffed a 400hp 302 Ford into. Since the whole point here was to take a cheap Japanese car, and stuff some good ol’ American horsepower into it, the guitar had to reflect that. Malcolm Pritchett at West Kentucky collision put this one together by taking a cheap 80’s Aria Pro guitar (Japanese made) and stuffing some hot EMG pickups in it (American made). The guitar was painted like the car with a custom PPG color called “Banshee Blue”, and a silver stripe running down the center of it.
