AD: Marty Friedman & Jason Becker for Hurricane Guitars

"A New Assault On The Sound Barrier"

Here’s that most dynamic of duos, Marty Friedman and Jason Becker showing off their Hurricane guitars. This ad comes from Guitar for the Practicing Musician, April 1988, meaning it appeared around the same time as Cacophony’s Go Off!, as well as the pair’s solo albums, Friedman’s Dragon’s Kiss, and Becker’s Perpetual Burn. It was a tremendous period of growth for metal guitar.

Dig this copy from the ad:

Masters of “fretboard frenzy,” Marty Friedman and Jason Becker from the hit group Cacophony (Shrapnel Records), use only the Hurricane LTD to achieve their blistering sound.

I wonder if they knew they were in a “hit group?”
