Rob Scallon is taking “Maytallica” pretty seriously. He’s played every song they have in four minutes (which you can see below), covered “Master of Puppets” on banjo, to name a few. How could he top himself? Well, how about coming out with his own eight-string signature guitar, then having two other people play Metallica’s “One” on it? Even just hearing their version of the song, which features Joe Shadid from reverb.com on lead and Jeff Linville on one-finger bass, is impressive. It covers the complexities of the song well, even though it’s essentially an acoustic cover. And watching it being played on a singular guitar is mesmerizing.
You can preorder his guitar (which also comes in a six-string version) here. And check out the entire Metallica catalog performed below:
