I doubt the regular production prices will be anywhere near that...still, makes me wonder why only 20% is going to charity...

Love the interchangeable snap on see through necks...can you get them with interchangeable LP and Strat snap on bodies?


Take care, Larryz

I like the banjo tuners on the nylon and that's the best use for the cutaway butt I've seen (ie. resting the guitar on your knee) for classical players...I have heard better sounding nylon electrics though. Not sure about that big arm just to support a strap lock and the tie bridge when they make ball end nylon strings...it is very nice and a very worthy project...

On the taproot, it is definitely beyond trees. The guy is an exceptional wood worker. Not sure how well redwood which is pretty darn soft will work as a neck, but this guy is beyond any second guessing on my part and knows his stuff. I think The Sgt Pepper band would have liked this concept...

both a very cool even if not my cup of tea...thanks for sharing Hugo! cool


Take care, Larryz

There used to be a company that made guitar necks with interchangeable fingerboards; Tony Levin used to endorse 'em during the Three of a Perfect Pair/So period. Anyway, while trying and failing to find video/photos of said necks, I found this guy's work:

Would've been nice to see some riffage on that thing! Doesn't look all that playable....


Never a DUH! moment! Well, almost never. OK, OK! Sometimes never!

He has another video with a bit of Floyd's "Wish You Were Here", but its clear that he's not a great player, and it's probable that the guitar is out of tune...

And its just as dark as the other vid, so you really can't see much beyond the LEDs.

For me, it makes the guitar sound like a sitar. Good belly dancer concept guitar IMHO. His micro tones are what I would call subtle bends...He just needs a gypsy or belly dancer to go with the video...

ps. 8 strings in altered tuning with the melody played on one or two of them in a single mode, seems to be greatly enhanced when he starts tapping and playing many strings with both hands. Not sure if the guitar is in or out of tune as the micro tones are going to make some of that out of tune sound happen naturally. Cool concept... cool

This design, along with the one that looks like a fish skeleton, though imaginative & spacey, seems like the worst possible ergonomics one could think of in building an instrument that humans have to play. There's no body to anchor solidly against the player's body for stability, so the fretting hand has to hold the thing up, & there's no mass to provide sustain, nothing solid to push against for bends & vibrato. I don't get it.

I have seen a lot of aluminum guitars out there- few quite as polished (literally) as that one- and I'd love to have one. I must have a dozen or so bookmarked.

Choosing one would be difficult, though not as much as paying for one, though...

Standard tuning, not baritone? That's long. Does it feel substantially longer than a Fender neck? I'll bet ease of playing upper frets is great, but wonder about certain 1st position chord voicings being more of a stretch.

More of a "most beautiful instrument ever made" than a "weird guitar," but there's a Pagelli Goldbass for sale on eBay:
