The owner of the Hamer GT Custom Guitar
Glenn Tipton is one of the Grammy Award-winning guitarists and is one of two guitar players for the heavy metal band Judas Priest. Tipton and guitarist K.K. Downing are long-time tennis players and also both of them took up golf during an early 1980s American tour with Def Leppard.
Glenn Tipton is known for his complex, sometimes classically-influenced solos, and he has a unique guitar laying technique. Many of his solos are very difficult to transcribe, and his playing is notable for his double lead guitar trades with fellow Judas Priest guitarist K.K. Downing. Tipton's solos have maintained a consistent style for most of his career, but he has continuously incorporated new techniques into his playing over the years as he has developed as a guitarist. The usual arrangement on Judas Priest songs featured Downing playing rhythm guitar and Tipton solos, although the two would alternate places and some songs such as "Burnin' Up" and "Screaming For Vengeance" feature riffs and leads by both guitarists. Starting with Judas Priest's fourth album, Stained Class, Tipton began to dominate the band's songwriting, especially on the more commercial tracks which almost exclusively featured his guitar leads. Following the release of their sixth album, British Steel, most songs in the live set lists were Tipton's. On the whole, his solos feature in almost 60% of Judas Priest's total catalog.
The Hamer GT Custom Guitar
For the TURBO/Fuel For Life tour in 1986, Hamer introduced a new non-production custom model called the Hamer GT Custom Guitar. Its black angular body loosely resembled a Gibson Explorer, causing it to be often mistakenly called a Scarab GT, though it is not a Scarab model at all. This guitar features a maple fretboard with black dot inlays, two Duncan and EMG humbucking pickups, a Kahler locking tremolo and a white stripe outlining the body shape.
"The Hamer GT Custom Guitar is my own design and it looks a bit strange, but there's always method in madness. For me anyway, this is a great thing, because onstage, I still play some stretch stuff, so I need to get the guitar at this angle and as you can see, it just fits nicely to me. So this was all tailor-made. It's got a very narrow neck which is how I like to play. But the beauty of this Hamer GT Custom Guitar is we can do anything onstage, you know, play with our teeth or jumping around, and then I can just find the right position to play. So it's got a certain nice line to it, but it's very functional and it also balances the guitar. If you ever tried to design guitars, they can look very good, but they can be top or bottom heavy, but with this guitar, it's really nicely balanced and it's always in a good position to play."
