Hmm, just what I thought... the guitar's a fake, and so is the model... I'm not against women modeling the guitars, but I don't know... the swimsuit poses have to go. Also, I wanna see pics of real players, not blown up love dolls.

 

Save the swimsuit poses for when any of the players come up to me personally. Then we'll talk. ;)

 

Just my two cents.

Yes, in the world's need for greater wood conservation, Farnell Guitars offers the world's first alternative to an ALL WOOD guitar that sounds as good if not better than an all wood guitar! Check them out today!
That's pretty much just plain crap. I have an Ovation UKII at home that's urethane on an aluminum frame that sounds pretty swank.

 

I like the look of some of them, though, gotta give them that. And remember, not all foam is the consistency of couch cushions. Some of it's pretty damn solid. :rolleyes:

 

EDIT: And then I remembered... Afri-can Guitars ! They're a definite 'alternative to an ALL WOOD guitar', and supposedly have a tone that's quite unique, yet more traditionaly than you'd think. Just thought I'd throw them out there.

Yeah, but graphite and aluminum are much better alternatives to wood than foam IMO. They'd last longer, too.

Surprisingly there are some legit players endorsing these things, including Stan Lasiter .

 

I just don't like the body/headstock designs (or the marketing angle). Not a guitar I would make a point to pick up.

guitar geezer,

Not the Best marketing angle for an inventive new product...Dont ya start questioning the quality right from the start?
What quality? OH, there's a guitar in that picture :D

 

Now, back for a reality check, the foam (in the GUITAR guys). There are a great many "Engineering Plastics" that have simply unbelievable mechanical characteristics, stiffness, density, etc. The term "Foam" also applies to a rigid foam like that used in the famous unsinkable Boston Whaler. I don't know ANYthing about this guitar or the material, but with the new Engineering Plastics just about anything is possible, some absolutely incredible stuff.

 

Hey Boggs, don't they use some pretty high tech (plastic) materials for racing cars?

 

Plastic does not automatically mean cheap anymore. Some of the Engineering Plastics are VERY expensive and include scattered strenghtening fibers for additional strength and rigidity.

 

From the site ".. a closed-cell polyfoam .." Closed cell means rigid and dense. Then "The Mahogany insert and the other design features of the Farnell patented process provides for low-end bass tones. The durable fiberglass/composite casing provides for incredible high-end to overall tone." Mahogany sounds good :cool: and we already know that "fiberglass" works in guitars (Ovation).

 

I agree that the ".. first alternative .." comment is out of line, but what marketing department doesn't stretch the boundaries a little (mostly a LOT). Also the site (now?) says patended, NOT patent applied for. That COULD mean something.

 

This MIGHT be a real bargin to get one of the first ones. Ya' never know. Looks pretty cheap right now. When a new, revolutionary product comes out it usually sells pretty cheap until everyone sees how great it is, then the price skyrockets.

 

Yes it's a gamble :rolleyes: If Guitar Player liked it ..... I might roll the dice (after MUCHO research) if I had any money.

 

My final answer: Today's Engineering Plastics are absolutely nothing short of amazing. Don't count it out 'cause its "plastic".

So where in "Twangtown" are you, Mudcat? I haven't worked with Stan in several years, but I'd love to take a close look at this guitar. I'll have to see if my buddy's still drumming for him.

 

Regarding the foam construction... skepticism is fine, but those who've never used foam for construction have no clue how solid and firm it can be. We use closed cell foam for many set pieces. It's not as light as you might believe (although it is considerably lighter than wood) and it can be quite solid. A stiffening outer coating, similar to the carbon fiber attached to Parker Fly Classic guitars, could provide a protective outer coating and increased rigidity.

 

{edit}Actually, the concept is remarkably similar to that of the Parker Fly. The through-body mahogany core is different, as is the foam inside fiberglass. I'm surprised anyone suggested it would not be strong, in light of the surfboard comparison. Think about the abuse a surfboard is designed to handle. Strength is not going to be a problem for this instrument. :D {end edit}

 

I, myself, am skeptical, but I'd love to hear and feel one before jumping to any conclusions.

And when he was done, he sat on the thing and it started glowing and whooshed him back up to his mothership.

Is it just me, or is it a little sad that there is a decided lack of Nekkid Wimmen and Guitarz posting on this thread? ;)

 

Seriously, folks often cite light-density swamp-ash with a thin, hard shell of nitro-cellulose lacquer for resonant, "vintage" guitar-tone; why wouldn't this foam have similar acoustic resonance properties?

 

I do think the Farnell leaves a lot to be desired in the "looks" department, though! But their design ideas are pretty interesting.

 

As for the "nekkid" angle... whenever I notice a skimpily-adorned bimbette pitching a tent in her G-string with her very own wang-bar, I get suspicious... ! ;):D

Ask yourself- What Would Ren and Stimpy Do?

I always liked this guitar:

http://www.edromanguitars.com/resources/images/tsbRoswell.jpg

It's a Jackson Roswell Rhoads guitar. Alien inlays on the neck and some funky tuners at the headstock. This one is wood, but there was an all hollow bodied aluminum model that I really thought was cool. :thu::cool:

I'll tell 'ya what, I'll take the wood one off your hands and you can keep the aluminum one :D

I like the aluminum one because it looks more like something from another world. Not too many trees on Mars or Venus...
