I have a few questions about acrylic guitars. Are they made anymore? who makes/made them? Where could I find one, other than ebay or craigslist.Is there somthing that drastically reduces the playability of acrylic guitars? Is that why they arnt made anymore? THanks to anyone that can help

**** that.
I work out a lot, it was still a pain in the ass to play.
Hell, even a 16 lb guitar is a pain. My main guitar is 16 lbs XD

wow really that much? What makes them so heavey? My V s 8 poinds, my dads les paul custom is 10 pounds, my hondo is 10 pounds, the 59 lpj is 7 pounds, and my bass is 8 pounds.What does it feel like to stand up/ sit down playing an acrylic? I still adore the looks of them, and will probably save up for them.Wether they weigh more than all of my guitars or not, unless they play absolutely horrible.Youtube searchey time!

The fact that acrylic is denser than wood makes it "so heavy"...

O and for TS, Shecter and i think Hamer do some nice acrylic models.

Yea, I'm pretty used to standing up and playing, and my V is good for that.I want a unique guitar that stands out, and makes people go "cool" or "wow" or "can I try?" or "can I buy you a mentally challenged Chiwawa called Tater Tot?" So what models did BC rich make into acrylics, I can find anyhting about it on their website.I've seen a clear warlock, a green mockingbird, a red warlock, and I think i saw a clear warbeast, is that all they made? I'd be interested in an Acrylic Bich model, But mocking bird is good too.

i've seen black/red warlocks
red/clear/green mockingbirds, havent seen any in another store except for where i bought mine. and you can stand with it, but practice for a couple weeks sitting, then stand. but i love the mocking bird look. everyone who saw is was like "thats fu**ing awesome"

its really not that much of a pain, both guitars i have are heavy by any standard guitar today, my Ibanez is about 18lbs and my BC Rich comes in at about 20, so its all good to me, but then again im 6'1" and 280 LBS and i bench press alot so im used to weight

I don't know too much about them but the general consensus is that they sustain forever because they're so dense, but they lack resonance and they are extremely heavy.
