Texas-based custom electric guitar company Sully Guitars has announced the addition of TikTok star Zaria to its artist roster.

You might remember Zaria as the viral sensation who, when called out for wearing a Metallica T-shirt, proceeded to shred some Metallica classics on guitar, including Master of Puppets, Enter Sandman, One, and Battery.
