Come on baby, let's do the twist! I guess there's no point in luthiers looking down the neck anymore...I can see the concept of lowering pressure on the wrists...it's a rock and roller!

Nice video.

I wish they had included some contact info, though- you know how many "Smith" guitar companies there are out there? And if you search for "Ralph Smith" guitars, it's all about the original guy, not his family trying to follow in his footsteps.

I think they should partner with/license to RainSong. Graphite would be the ideal solution.

Cool video and nice looking guitars. I love the cutaway design and the thumb slide route on the back of the neck! I really liked the part where they have to do "reverse engineering" to figure out what some of the old man Smith's tools were used for... cool

For an 18? Probably!

You know, I've never cared how practical a 12-string bass is, I've always adored the sound. This Dommenget one is gorgeous...well to my eyes, at least. First Les Paul-style anything I've liked in a long time.

What surprises me is not the 12-stringiness of it, but the fact that it has a whammy bar!

You could do the Dive Bomb from hell with that baby! I wonder if it's like shooting a bow and arrow when you release the tension?

That video...what a triumph of design!

I may send that link to someone who speaks Hungarian so I can find out more about the builder.

Not a guitar, but it deserves a place here:



It's a tube-powered overdrive unit, made by a UK outfit called Biffbox.

Not sure if I'm supposed to play it, or drive it?

Hope no one stomps that tube accidently out of socket...I think it's made for lighting up the pedal board with a soft glow IOW For Artistic Looks or a prop for playing Air Guitar! still kind of cool though... cool
