Building the DIO Guitar

Inspired by one of the most revered Rock and Metal figureheads and cultural engineers, Ronnie James Dio, the DIO guitar physically manifests the symbol made infamous by the man, the myth, the legend himself, in the formation of a highly individual design that when played banishes the demons he so often referenced within his lyrical suggestions, and heralds the Mal Occhio ‘the evil eye’. Framed by the eponymous rainbow, by mention of his former band, this awe-inspiring instrument commemorates the career, legacy and mythology of Dio, and represents 10 years without his presence, though ultimately honours his impact upon the world, and his on-going battle between Heaven and Hell.
