AGNOSTIC FRONT: 30th-Anniversary 'Stigma' Guitar Due This Month

Artist Series Guitar (ASG) has announced the release of the exclusive signature guitar from one of the most influential hardcore bands of all time, AGNOSTIC FRONT. The guitar, a.k.a. Stigma, marks the 30th anniversary of this gritty New York City punk institution and is named for main songwriter and guitarist Vinnie Stigma.

Responsible for helping to define the urban New York hardcore sound with 1984's "Victim In Pain" album and known as one of the first bands to introduce heavy metal to hardcore punk in 1986's "Cause For Alarm", AGNOSTIC FRONT's Stigma guitar was designed by the bandmembers themselves and is a flat-back SG classic adorned with the band's signature combat boot logo.

AGNOSTIC FRONT vocalist Roger Miret speaks of the symbolism of the guitar, saying, "I think the guitar is perfect for the working class musician endorsed by the ultimate working-class band! The boots symbol has always been of the same character. Hardcore has been our life. Our dedication to this movement has been our passion. Our boots stomped the way into NYHC history."

Stigma will be available to purchase on April 24 and has a limited production of 500 guitars worldwide.
