ANDREW W.K. UNVEILS TACO GUITAR ON 'NATIONAL TACO DAY'

Party God Andrew W.K. is proud to unveil his brand new Taco Guitar, in celebration of National Taco Day. Like the Pizza Guitar before it, the Taco Guitar was custom made by ESP Guitars, and was born from Andrew's ongoing quest to create the partiest things in the world.

"I started pondering, what’s another food that's as party as pizza? When it comes to edible celebration, tacos are partier than almost anything else. Pizza and tacos are among the partiest foods on the planet, and I realized that since I had paid musical tribute to pizza, I now had to pay musical tribute to tacos. I was destined to make a taco shaped guitar - it was inevitable," declared Andrew. "This is proof that if you have the vision, no matter how outlandish or unruly, the team at ESP Guitars can turn that vision into reality. And they do it using the highest quality materials - the highest quality craftsmanship. ESP has absolutely mind blowing attention to detail and they put playability at the top of their instrument's many attributes. There’s no compromise when it comes to the integrity of this instrument, and there's no softness when it comes to the hardness of my party."

Hand painted by Andrew himself, the guitar features a ground beef taco on the front side (topped with shredded cheddar cheese, chopped lettuce, and jumbo diced tomatoes), and a dazzling turquoise eye emblazoned on the back. Watch a video from ESP on the making of the Taco Guitar HERE.

With a new studio album set for release on March 2, 2018 via SONY MUSIC worldwide, Andrew W.K. is currently in the middle of his first full-band concert outing in five years, “The Party Never Dies Tour”, which continues tonight in Dallas, Texas.
