Mjölnir Concept

Mjölnir (ma.yorll.neer) : the legendary hammer and weapon of the God of Thunder, Thor. Forged by the Dwarven brothers Eitri and Brokkr as a result of an ill-fated wager with Loki.

“…Thor might smite as hard as he desired, whatsoever might be before him, and the hammer would not fail…”

I have recently been able to free up some resources which will allow me to begin work on a third concurrent project. Following the Nordic themes of my guitar projects, this next Les Paul style guitar will be in tribute to Mjölnir, hammer of Thor, the God of Thunder.
I will be taking advantage of some extremely attractive figured grain in the timbers used for this project, and so the finish will be very natural and wholly unadorned.

The fretboard will feature a solitary inlay spanning the 11th, 12th and 13th frets; the Sign of the Hammer, an added homage to one of my all-time favourite true-Metal bands, Manowar.
This will be crafted from engraved, white Mother of Pearl. The electronic configuration will be very minimal, highlighting the quality of materials used;

  • bridge & neck humbucker
  • single volume pot

Currently the intention is for a set of Bareknuckle ‘Miracle Man’ humbuckers, probably with just a coil-split option within the volume control.
