Gwar’s Pustulus Maximus

The band's newest guitarist, Brent Purgason, slayed on his signature Blakhart model, the Whargoul Pustulus Maximus. Even though the guitar takes a beating every show, Purgason says he's only had to make minor adjustments. His guitars are strung with D’Addario (.010-.046 ) strings.
