    Default Charvel WD Cross Swords

    Hi guys, I'm going to be getting a Warren DeMartini Cross Swords and want to know what does the Japanese writing say on it? I guess the same thing is on the Bomber also?

    Wasn't it "London"? Working off memory. Memory not good.

    Axewielder is correct. The bomber one is London, Mr Lawrence told me a long time ago that Warren got the idea from the picture of Gary Moore wearing a jacket with that patch on it. It was on the back of one of his albums..

    Sweet. The Kanji characters look the same on both, just stylized differently.

    I always thought it looked like the letters R A T T jumbled up. I wonder if that is a secondary reason he chose it?

    "London" seems weird on a Japanese themed guitar, doesn't it??
