The Apocalypse is Making Guitars Now?

Um.. why was I not informed that there was such a thing as an apocalypse guitar?  As you may or may not be aware.  I am in a heavy new wave (sci-fi themed) band.  We have songs about Dune and Orson Scott Card novels and whatnot.  Anyway, I never even considered that I could combine my love of new wave and rawk music and my love of post-apocalyptic cinema.  What a "you got chocolate in my peanut butter" moment!  Oh wait.. you probably don't know what I'm talking about yet, right?  I found this thing on ebay: SCHECTER V-1 APOCALYPSE GUITAR.

Here's a picture:

Now, I'm not claiming to know much about this guitar.  Hell, it could sound like crap.  (Although something is telling me that it's pretty rad-sounding)  But, just look at it!  It looks like old weathered brass or something?  I could totally see Mad Max playing this guitar.  Actually, it would probably be Snake or somebody else from Escape from New York, but you get the idea.

I love reading the auction notes because they are pretty much without capitalization and punctuation so you get the feeling your reading some crackpot's manifesto or something:
