A Brife Introduction to Vivian Campbell Nightswan

Talented heavy metal guitarist Vivian Patrick Campbell(born 25 August 1962) comes from Northern Ireland. He began playing guitar at the age of 12. He first rose to prominence in 1982 as the original guitarist of the band Dio. He has played for Sweet Savage, Dio, Trinity, Whitesnake, Riverdogs, and Shadow King. 

The Nightswan was a signature model for Vivian Campbell. The Nightswan actually has an interesting background that most people haven't heard about, that really makes this instrument far from being a Kra designed instrument. The Nightswan actually started as the "Shredder" model from Buddy Blaze guitars. During the period of 1987–1988, Campbell had Dallas-area luthier Buddy Blaze make him a custom guitar. This instrument, nicknamed the Shredder, had a Strat-shaped mahogany body with polka-dot graphics, a 24-fret neck with diagonal dot inlays on its ebony fretboard, a pointy reverse headstock, and two Seymour Duncan humbucker pickups. The bridge was a Floyd Rose. A deal was then set up between Buddy Blaze and Kra Guitars. Kra eventually hired Buddy as a business associate, not just as an employee, and Buddy Blaze managed the association with Vivian and other artists while working for Kra. The Shredder was eventually renamed to the Nightswan, by Vivian's wife. Needless to say, the Nightswan is one of the most remarkable instruments Kra ever made. Vivian signed with Kra as an endorser, and there are a few ads showing him with this guitar. He played the original Shredder through Whitesnake's 1987-1988 world tour. 

Graphics on the Swans were offered in a variety of 5 finishes: Lightning, Polka Dot, Dark Polka Dot, Aztec and Holoflash. (For the time being, we have only duplicated one model--Aztec, and other models are being developed and processed. If you are intrested in other models, please contact us. We have professional custom chain to provide high quanlity guitars what you need)
