And you thought the 1980's was the "Age of Excess"? As I remember, Hartman said in an interview that the suit / instrument wasn't all that comfortable in use and it didn't last very long as a stage prop.

Still, it looks good and that's all that mattered in that era of Glam Rock..

Did you need washboard abs to use this suit? Could they design one for Metalocalypse's Murderface?

All was fine until he did a guest spot with The Who, when they got carried away and set their instruments afire at the end.
