Mastodon dropped their grandest album yet, Hushed and Grim, last month, and Bill Kelliher has followed up with a signature STL ToneHub Pack, replicating its gargantuan guitar sounds – but there’s another piece of gear that’s been catching guitarists’ eyes.

In a promo video for the plugin, Kelliher can be seen playing a double-cut Silverburst ESP Eclipse, one quite unlike anything else in the company’s current catalog and closer in design to a Yamaha SG2000 or First Act custom offering.
