Every year since 2014, UK-based brand Cynosure – headed up by luthier Oliver Andrew – has been commissioned by Bloodstock Festival’s Paul Raymond Gregory to create eye-catching electric guitars for the event’s bespoke RAM art gallery.

This year marks the 20th anniversary of the iconic metal festival, and as such, Cynosure has served up four exquisite custom guitars, the first two of which have been revealed – including one inspired by Dio’s iconic 'horns' hand gesture.
