Quest Atak V

Of all the crazy MIJ guitars I've seen, this one is really unique.  They're a little outside my area of study, since they were made in the 1980's, but they so embody the era of metal bands and long hair.  The Quest Atak series is pretty awe-inspiring in designs from the time, but the Atak V is an axe to savor.  Want to see the fluid, flying shape of one?  Go to this webpage.  Awesome, isn't it?

In addition to the crazy shape, I love the color blending on the looks like it just came out of a fire someplace.  Must be some hot guitar madness being generated by that Atak.  Looks like you can score an Atak for as little as $120, but that's peanuts for as beautiful as these guitars look to me. 

If you own one of these pieces of guitar art, let me know how they sound!

  1. Good afternoon -

    I found your information online and appears you have alot of information on the Quest Atak Line.

    May I send you some pictures and with your knowledge - tell me anything you can about them ???

    They are in pristine condition - original cases and nver been played.

    The only information I have:

    Unique, only pair like it ever made as a promotion for the Quest factory in Japan. This is the factory that turns out the GIbson Epiphone, Charvel, BC Rich and many other fine guitars. The Quest matching guitar and bass with hand-painted geisha and samurai sealed in the finish. Mahogany body, maple neck with rose-wood fingerboard. Active electronics. Hard shell cases included.

    OR .... if you can at least point me in the right direction I would be forever greatful.

    Thank you for your time and efforts....

    Thank you for the opportunity-
