The Lerxst Limelight is a Canadian-made tribute to a Canadian legend: Alex Lifeson of Rush! These very limited edition guitars are available at The Music Zoo!

The Lerxst Limelight was first unveiled at NAMM 2024, and was one of Music Zoo owner Tommy Collett's first stops at the show as he is such a big fan of the guitarist and his music with Rush. The story of the Limelight starts in the early 1980s with the iconic Moving Pictures album: Alex Lifeson needed a guitar to execute his expanding sonic ideas and resulted in the creation of the Hentor Sportscaster. These were highly modified S-style guitars that became synonymous with Rush and Alex's playing in the 1980s.

To bring these guitars back to life, Alex's brand Lerxst has teamed up with the Canadian guitar company Godin to create the new Limelight guitar. Ahead of the release of the iconic Moving Pictures album, Lifeson sought a fresh instrument to bring to life his increasingly expansive sonic ideas. His desire for versatile tonality within an intuitive form factor resulted in the creation of the original Hentor Sportscasters– highly modified S-Type guitars that became synonymous with Alex’s sounds and guitar style in the 1980s.
