Justin “Nordic Thunder” Howard Signature Air Guitar Demo

We got a kick out of this blog post that our Illinois dealer, Chicago Music Exchange, posted on 2012 World Air Guitar Champion Justin “Nordic Thunder” Howard! We laughed so hard that we thought we would share it with our J.Rockett Audio Design followers!


We at Chicago Music Exchange had a unique opportunity to work with Justin “Nordic Thunder” Howard on an exclusive, and very limited, piece of gear.

Nordic Thunder has been on our radar since 2011. As lovers of all things gear, we tuned into the 2011 US Air Guitar Championships at Chicago’s Metro where guitarists of all shapes and sizes battled it out for national (and worldwide) fame. Nordic Thunder ultimately finished second in the world that year. In 2012, he was overtaken in the US by Matt “Airistotle” Burns, but ultimately won the 2012 World Air Guitar Championships after qualifying as a dark horse competitor.

If those aren’t accomplishments, we don’t know what are.

So, of course, when the opportunity arose to collaborate with him on an exclusive guitar, we jumped on it! It was nothing short of fate that brought Nordic Thunder and Chicago Music Exchange to work together on one of our finest pieces of gear yet. Watch the demo below:

Nothing beats that ghost flame finish! And, we’re sure you’re just as in love with those transparent tones as we are.
