I've been thinking lately about all the acrylic guitars im seeing on youtube. I know a few companies have experimented with acrylic as a body, or neck material, for instance BC rich made an acrylic warlock.
Does anyone make these things anymore? I know galvaston still does. has anyone ever actually played a galvaston? Does anyone know of any other guitar manufacturers who still make acrylic guitars?

I think BCR still does, but I'm not sure?

Anyways, I wouldn't even consider getting one. The tone sucks and they're heavy as all hell.

true. acrylic just doesn't resonate as nicely as a nice wood body does. i mean yea, a see through guitar is cool..but if it sounds like butthole then what's the point
keep writing. keep dreaming.

keep the notes coming...

Axe FX would probably clean that tone up real quick...

I would get one just for giggles if I knew where to find them
You know, you're probably reading this saying "Hey, I'm bored, maybe this'll be funny?"
It's not. Too bad. No, I am not refunding you those 6 seconds of your life. So :P

i dont keep track of ibanez very well but i remember that they made an acrylic sig model for joe satriani. dont know if they still do but there's probably plenty of used ones floating around. probably not for very cheap though.

those dillons actually look pretty nice and they arent as expensive as i thought they'd be.

I guess fire extinguishers have to be filled with something other than fire retardant now, because apparently that's offensive.

I've heard equal stories on both sides. Half of the things I hear about them say that they sound god awful. The other half say that they sound a lot better than wood. I wonder if there will ever be a conclusion. It's hard due to the subjectivity of tone.

A local guitar store here had an acrylic Warlock and Mockingbird at one time.
Heavy as a son-of-a-bitch, they were.
